Betreff: (No Subject) Dear Sir, I am Mr. John Okon, Bank Manager
of Orient Bank of Nigeria, Lagos Branch. I have urgent and
very confidential business proposition for you.
On June 6, 1997, an American Oil consultant/contractor with
the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Barry Kelly
made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months,
valued at US$75,000,000.00 (Seventy Five Million Dollars)
in my branch. On maturity, I sent a routine notification to
his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we
sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract
employers, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation that
Mr. Barry Kelly died from an automobile accident. On further
investigation, I found out that he died without making a Will,
and all attempts by the American Embassy to trace his next
of kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that
Mr. Barry Kelly did not declare any kin or relations in all
his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork
in my Bank. This sum of total US$75,000,000.00 is still sitting
in my Bank as dormant account. No one will ever come forward
to claim it, and according to Nigerian Law after 5 years,
the money will revert to the ownership of the Nigeria Government
if the account owner is certified dead and nobody comes forward
to claim it.
This is the situation, and my proposal is that I am looking
for an American who will stand in as the next of kin to Mr.
Barry Kelly. A bank account abroad will then facilitate the
transfer of this money to 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 paperwork. The money will
then be paid into this account for us to share in the ratio
70% for me; 30% for you.
There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction
will be done by me using my position and connection in the
Banks in Nigeria. We shall employ the services of an attorney
to draft the Will and obtain all necessary documents and letters
of administration in your favour for the transfer. This transaction
is guaranteed. If you are interested, please reply immediately
via the private email address below. Please observe utmost
confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would
be most profitable for both of us because I shall require
your assistance to invest my share in your country.
Awaiting your urgent reply via my email: email@example.com
Thank you and regards.
Mr. John Okon. >
