Dear Friend,
Greetings to you
This letter is written to you based on contact information I came across on web while searching for investment options overseas. I know that the letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great friends and business partners. My name is Mr. David Mabor, Manager of Continental Trust Bank Plc, Apapa Branch Lagos, Nigeria.
I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that I can trust you with the information I am about to reveal to you. Like I said, I have a transaction that will benefit both of us, as your assistance is required as a foreigner. I discovered a Fixed Solid Investment of Three Million United States Dollars {US$3,000,000.00} for one Engr. William Adams a customer in my branch who died in Ejinrin-Ikorodu in November 1999 and nominated no next of kin to inherit the title over his investments with the bank. Late Engr. Adams used to work with Chevron Petroleum Company as a consultant here in Nigeria and was banking in my branch and I was directly in charge of his account because he requested that he wants me as the manager to be directly responsible for his account. As a matter of fact, he entrusted most of his banking documents in my care for safe-keep in our strong room.
The bank made several enquiries to locate any of his relatives without success. I finally found his lawyer/attorney here in Nigeria by name BARRISTER MOHAMMED BELLO. I revealed the inheritance to him and he has accepted to work with me to get the inheritance paid to the account of any foreigner I will provide to stand as Engr. Adams’s next of kin. Based on the above information, I have decided to link anybody to stand as Engr. Adams’s next of kin in order to claim the money he deposited in our bank since it is obvious that nobody knew about it and if I declare it to the management of our bank, they will move it in their reserve account as profit.
If you accept to stand as Engr. Adams’s next of kin to claim this inheritance of three million dollars, I am willing to split the funds into three parts, for each of us having an equal share of One Million Dollars. Once you file for the claim, we will do the rest for you in the inside and get the payment released in your name. If you are interested and capable, please get back to me through email. I will send my identifications to you once you indicate your interest to work with me.
There is no risk involved in this transaction, as I will give you all information you may need about Engr. Adams and his banking relationship with my branch to enable you stand as his next of kin to receive this money in your account. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Barrister Bello and I will come over to your country for our share once this transaction is concluded. I am optimistic that we will conclude this transaction within three weeks. Thanks in advance for your anticipated co-operation
Mr. David Mabor.
