Subject: PROPOSAL: (UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY A MUST)
FROM THE DESK OF Mr. Ben Okoh
I am Mr. Ben Okoh the Manager, Bills And Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department in a Bank. Actually, I have a very urgent & confidential Business Proposition for you & for our overall mutual interest, On the 6th of March 2001, our Customer, an American National, Late Engr.Steve Moore, an Oil
Merchant / Contractor with the Federal Government of Nigeria, deposited, a valued amount of US$45Million in my branch.
Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarded address but got no reply. After a month we sent a reminder, & finally we discovered from his contract employers NNPC, that Late Engr. Steve Moore, until his death Nine years ago in a ghastly terrorist attack to American Airlines Flight 11, from Boston, Massachusetts, to Los Angeles, California, crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center (WTC) with 86 people on board. All occupants of the Aeroplane unfortunately lost their lives.
On further vestigation, I found out that My Late client, Engr. Steve Moore did not leave a ! WILL and all attempts to trace his Next of kin were fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Late Engr. Steve Moore, did not declare any Next of kin in all his official documents. This sum
US$45Million is still floating in the bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year.
No one will come forward to claim it. According to Nigerian Laws, at the expiration of 9years, the money will revert to the Ownership of the Nigerian Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.
Consequently, my proposal is that i will like you as a foreigner to stand in as a Next of kin of Late Engr. Steve Moore. This is simple. All I require is your honest and co-operation to enable us see this deal through.
I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. I will want you to send to me on your return email the following information for the transfer in your favor!.
1. Your full names as the Beneficiary of the Fund.
2. Your Country and contact address.
3. Your private phone and fax numbers,
consider that our ratio of sharing will be as stated Thus;
1. I as the Originator of the Fund will take 60% of the transferable Fund.
2. You as the Manager of the Fund will take 40% of the transferable Fund.
Most importantly, CONFIDENTIALITY as what I saw as the life wire to the success of the transfer of this Fund must have to be emulated between you and me. You have to use this media to promise me that you will not in anyway expose the content of this transaction to anybody be it your Friends, Colleagues and Co-Workers.
I will also want you to send your reply to this my private email: firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you get this mail to enable us discuss on the modalities and processes for success of this
Thanks for your anticipated cooperation
I wait for your kind response.
