From the Desk of:
Dr. JUBRIL MARTINS
Bill and Exchande Manager,
Foreign Remittance Dept.
ZENITH INTERNATIONAL BANK PLC,
I am the manager of Bill and Exchange at the foreign
remittance department of the ZENITH INTERNATIONAL BANK PLC .I am writing
following the impressive information about you through one of my friends
who runs a Consultancy firm in your country. He assured me of your capability
and reliability to champion this business opportunity.
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of U.S$10.5m US dollars
(Ten million, five hundred thousand US dollars) in an account that belongs
to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in
1997 in a plane crash. Since we got information about his death, we havebeen
expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot
release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to
the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws, but unfortunately
we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with
him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department
now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money
to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent
disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don’t want this money
to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
The banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained
unclaimed after four years, the money will be transfered into the bank treasury
as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business
is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Ngerian
cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 30% of this money
will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign
account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incured during the business
and 60% would before me and my lleagues.There after I and my colleagues
will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged,
you must apply first to the bankas relation or next of kin of the deceased
indicating your bank name, your bank account number,your private telephone
and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in
the money will be remitted.
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text
of the application. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this
transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of
fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You
should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Manager (Bill and Exchange)
