MY name is Dr Ommar Sheriff,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 [ECOB ANK of African plc.]
I am contacting u 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 money that
has long been declared -UNCLAIMED-bythe chairman and
some members of the board of directors of our bank.
The money is the closing ballance of one of our best
customers who died in the crash.I was his personal
account oficer just before he died inthe ADC plane
crash of 1997 in Abidjan.He is a Japanese citizen , a
contractor with the federal government of Nigeria he
suplied and installed equipment and his company creek
contractors completed some of the best best
construction contract in country.His closing balance
in the bank ,$12M us dollars has been tagged unclaimed
because no relative of him came forward to make
statement of claim. we have no knowledge of next of
At this point i trust u can picture what the situation
is like. We have strongly proof that the chairman the
board of directors will keep most of the money for
themselves and donate the remainder to a discredited
military trust in Nigeria.This invariably is an
attempt to infuse  more money into the acquisition of
military equipment [arms and ammunition] for use in an
already prostrate Africa .This is of course ,is
senseless hence my mission.My colleagues ands my self
have made several attempt at locating persons that
could be remotely related to him and we have been
doing this for about 8 years now .
Right now I am almost alone in this enterprise and I
have presently decided on moving the money 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
stage. You will help by providing a safe bank account
into which the money will be paid and you will stand,
as a next of kin to the deceased,I will provide you
wi! t h answers to security question, which you will
have to answer.I will also provide you 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 telephone and
fax between you and the bank. For your participation
you will be commensurately compensated with 25%,5% is
set aside to settle all expenses incurred by both
parties.70% will be kept on trust in your account
prior to my arrival for the sharing. If you disagree,
you shoud call me so that we discuss the compensation
among other primary details. 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 talk about.If you are not interested, then,
please,do get rid of email and please forgive me ie
