My name is  Mr Prince Matins . I am one of the senior managers in the bank .I work for Eco Bank of Africa Nigeria and I work under the director of foreign Exchange Operations (Eco Bank of Africa plc)
I am contacting you presently because I need your urgent assistance in a business transaction that will be of immense benefit to both of us.
I have the immediate need to transfer some fund that has been declared UNCLAIMED by the chairman and some members of the board of directors of our bank.
The fund is the closing balance of one of our best customer who died in the crash. I was his personal account officer just before he died in the ADC plane crash of 1997 in Abidjan. He was a Japanese citizen, a contractor to the Federal government of Nigeria, he supplied and installed equipments and his company Creek Contractors completed some of the best construction contracts in the country. His closing balance in the bank US5.5M has been tagged unclaimed because no relations of his has come to make a statement of claim. We have no knowledge of a next of kin to him.
At this point I trust you can picture what situation is like. We have strong prove that the chairman and the board of directors will keep most of the funds for themselves and donate the remainder to a discredited military trust fund in Nigeria. This invariably is an attempt to infuse more money into the acquisition of military equipment (arms and ammunitions) for use in an already prostrate Africa. This of course, is senseless hence my mission. My colleagues and I have made several attempts at locating that could be remotely related to him and we have been doing this for seven years now.
Right now I am almost alone in enterprise and I have presently decided on moving the fund to a foreign account. I am hereby soliciting your assistance and I will be very grateful if you will be willing to help in this regard. I have worked out a plan to handle this transaction in carefully followed stages. You will help by providing a safe bank account into which the fund will be paid and you will stand as a next of kin to the deceased.  I will provide you with answers to security questions, which you will have to answer. I will also, provide answers to questions that only a person related to him will know. If you follow my instructions closely, we will successfully conclude this transaction in 14 working days. Every thing should be concluded on phone and fax between you and the bank. For you participation you will be compensated with 35%, 5% is set aside for all the expenses incurred  by both parties. 60% will be kept in trust in your account prior to my arrival for the sharing. I make this proposal in trust and in good faith, therefore if you are interested and you agree to assist me then contact me immediately you receive this email. There is a lot more to talk about. If you are not interested, then please do get rid of this mail and please forgive me if this message has upset you anyway.
Thank you and best regards,
Please contact me with this email if you are interested.
