I am Robert (Bob) Kambili, Bank manager of Delta Trust Bank
Nigeria Ltd, Enugu branch, Nigeria; and for reasons which
will become obvious to you as read on, I obtained your address
particulars from an Internet address listing. Please exercise
some patience and read through my message. THIS IS NOT A SPAM
MAIL! You can reach me immediately on my private phone no
+ 234 1 759 0965; and my private fax line + 234 1 759 0966
I have very urgent and confidential business proposition
for you. On June 6th 1997, an Oil Consultant/Contractor with
the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Ahmed Youseff
Mustafa , a national of Iraq, made a numbered time ( fixed)
deposit for 12 calendar months, value USD30,000,000.00 in
On maturity, we sent a routine notification to his forwarding
address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder
and finally, his contract employers, the Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation ( NNPC) wrote to inform us that Mr.
A Y Mustafa died from an automobile accident; that he died
without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next
of kin through the Iraqi embassy were fruitless. At first
I was surprised that I did not receive much official cooperation
in my inquiries in order to trace his kin in Iraq, and inform
them about Mr. Mustafa's deposit of USD30m plus accrued interest.
I therefore made further investigations and discovered that
Mr. Mustafa had actively opposed the Government of President
Saddam Hussein of Iraq, and was consequently driven into exile.
Being an Oil Expert,he subsequently obtained a job with the
NNPC, and settled in Nigeria. Thereafter, he walked into my
Office to make the aforementioned deposit of USD30m. He did
not declare any kin in his application paperwork, contrary
to laid down procedures, and when I asked him he informed
me that he wished it so. I accepted his application because
banks are conservative and will always honor a customer's
wishes, especially high networth customers. No one knows the
source of his money because apparently the time frame of his
employment with the NNPC does indeed preclude such a large
amount of money. It can be assumed that he brought his money
over from Iraq, but that is open to speculation. However,
the point is that his employers are not aware of this money
, and therefore it can be safely assumed that no one will
ever come forward to claim this money. This money total USD31.5m
( inclusive of accrued interests) is still sitting in my Bank
in the Dormant Account Portfolio. No one will ever come forward
to claim it now, and according to Nigerian law, after 5 years,
the money will automatically revert to the Federal Government
Treasury if the Account owner is a foreigner, is certified
dead , and there is no valid claim. This indeed, is the situation.
My proposal therefore is that I am looking for a foreigner
who will stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Mustafa. It is
not necessary to be a blood relation to Mr. Mustafa, nor have
the same name. It is not also necessary to come from the same
Country. I have worked out the modalities to achieve my aim
of appointing a next of kin, and therefore also by this means
transfer this money total USD31.5m abroad for us to share.
The method of achieving the objective of transferring this
money abroad in a completely legal and proper way is simple.
I intend to use a n Attorney ( representing you as BENEFICIARY)
to execute a series of affidavits in support of your claim.
These will be approved. The money transfer paperwork itself
will include a certificate of origin so that the receiving
bank does not ask questions or refuse the money as money laundering.
Also, the paperwork will include proper certification that
the funds being transferred are from non criminal sources.
In short this will be a proper and legal money transfer and
there is no risk! I will have to process the initial paperwork
to obtain approval from the Probate Registry ( Ministry of
Justice ) to obtain the Letter of Administration empowering
you as Sole trustee/executor to the Estate of Mr. Mustafa.
If you therefore agree to be the official Beneficiary, then
please note that you will not be required to sign any Money
Transfer Documents ( my Attorney will do all (that), you will
not be required to come to Nigeria. Only the following is
required from you: (1) Send to me immediately A bank account
( a bank account with zero credit balance is ok) (2)
Complete name and address of the Bank (3) Bank Account Number
(4) Name of Account Holder/Beneficiary (5) Your address, phone
and fax (6) A brief background information on you (CV) Once
you send me the requested information as above, I will initiate
the processing of the transfer and in about 7 working days
the money total USD31.5m will be in your nominated bank account
for us to share in the ratio of 80% for me and 20% for you.
This transaction is guaranteed to succeed without any problems.
If you agree to assist me by sending me the above requested
information, I will give you my complete address, including
phone/ fax etc and any further clarifications you may require.
Looking forward to your urgent reply.
Yours truly Bob Kambili.
