Dear Friend,
 I sincerely write to seek your co-operation and trust to enable my
colleagues and I carry out an urgent business opportunity in my department.
I work with the Union Bank of Nigeria PL C; currently I am the senior
manager of bills and exchange at the foreign remittance department of my
bank. I have an urgent and confidential business proposal for you. On
June 6, 2003, an Australian oil consultant/contractor with via National
Petroleum cooperation (NNPC) Mr. Ali B. Ashraf made a numbered time
(fixed) deposit for twelve calendar month valued at US$51,000,000.00(fifty one Million US Dollars) in my branch. On maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarded address but got no reply after months we send a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employee (Nigeria National Petroleum
Corporation) that MR. Ali B. Ashraf died from an automobile accident. On
further investigation, it was clear that he died without making a WILL.
All attempts by the Australian to trace his next of kin were fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Ali B. Ashraf did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents including his deposit document in my bank. The total sum US$51,000,000.00 is still in my bank as dormant acct. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Nigerian banking law, after five years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Nigerian Government. If the account owner is certified death and nobody comes forward to claim it.
      This is the situation, and my proposal is that I am looking for a
foreigner who will stand in as the beneficiary/next of kin. This is simple. All you have to do is to immediately send me the details of a bank account anywhere in the world for me to arrange the proper money transfer document. The money
will then be transferred into the account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me 30% for you while the remaining 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred with here and there. There is no risk involved. I am using my position and connection in the bank here to do all the document work for the transaction. We shall employ the services of an attorney to draft the will and obtain all necessary documents and letter of administration in your favor for the transfer. This transaction is risk free guaranteed. If you are interested, , I will send to you the text of the application that you will send to the Union Bank authority for an approval to submit your claims.
      Send your reply through my direct and private email address indicate your direct Fax and telephone
numbers for effective communication that this transaction needs. Do not reply through the union bank email address because it belongs to the senior staffs for public use. Please note that you are not to appear in person, as every thing regarding this project will be strictly on documentations and every banking
documents needed for this transaction will be taken care of by my self. Looking
forward to hearing from you.
Yours Faithfully
