Sunster finance inc____________________________________________ A WILLIAM. AN ACCONTANT WITH SUNSTER FINANCE INC. 2, AJOSE ADEOGUN STREET, HEADQUARTERS ANNEX VICTORIA ISLAND, LAGOS. Dear Friend, I am obliged to write you especially concerning this fortnight transaction. My name is Mr. Adams William, and I work in the Credit & foreign Accounts Department of Sunster finance Inc. a citizen of the United State of America (USA). I am writing you in respect of a distinguished foreign customer with our bank, who died in a Plane Crash, His name is Engr.Frank L. Cole, He was among those who died in a plane crash here in Nigeria in the year 2002 May 4th.Since the demise of this our customer, who was an oil Merchant/contractor, I have kept a close watch of the deposit records and accounts and since then no body has come to claim the money in this a/c as next of kin to the late Engineer. Let me quickly refer you to the front page of (BBC) World News of Saturday, 4th May 2002,). You can check it through their website at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/1968300.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/1968616.stm He had Deposit valued @ US$12.5 million in his a/c and the a/c is coded. It is only an insider that could produce the code or password of the Deposit particulars. As it stands now, there is nobody in that position to produce the needed information other than my very self considering my position in the Finance Home as his account officer. Based on the reason that nobody has come forward to claim the deposit as next of kin, I hereby ask for your cooperation in using your name as the next of kin to the deceased to send these funds out to a foreign offshore bank a/c for mutual sharing between myself and you. At this point I am the only one with the information because I have removed the deposit file from the safe. If you agree to do business with me, the following information will be needed to file out an application form of claim in your name immediate to enable the release of the fund to you by the holding Authority. 1. Telephone and fax numbers for easy contact, 2. Your residential/home mailing address for correspondence mails 3. Your full Names The above needed information is to enable the easy processing of the transfer in your name and favor. Finally I want you to understand that the request for a foreigner as the next of kin is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and for that reason alone a Nigerian cannot represent as next of kin. When you contact me, then we shall discuss the ratio of disbursement between us. Trusting to hear from you, I remain respectfully yours, Mr. Adams William SUNSTER FINANCE INC (SFI) (ACCOUNT OFFICER)
