FROM: Nosa Osaso
Union Bank of Nigeria Plc.
First, I must solicit your confidence in this
transaction, this is by virtue of its nature as being
utterly CONFIDENTIAL and TOP SECRET.Though I know that
a transaction of this magnitude will make anyone
apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that
all will be well at the end of the day. We have
decided to contact you by e-mail due to the urgency of
Let me start by first introducing
myself properly to you. I am DR. NOSA OSASO, a Manager
at the UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC, Lagos. I came to
know of you in my private search for a reliable and
reputable person to handle a very confidential
transaction which involves the transfer of a huge sum
of money to a foreign account requiring maximum
confidence. I am not too really sure if you are my
long lost contact whom I am trying to reach, but in
anyway, please do take this message with a good heart
and report back to me if you are not the person I
think you are. I would explain more latter.
A foreigner, late Engineer SANN CLARKE, an Oil
Merchant / contractor with the federal Govenment of
Nigeria, until his death three years ago in a ghastly
air crash, banked with us here at UNION BANK, Lagos,
and had a closing balance of USD$27.5M (Twenty Seven
Million and Five hundred thousand,United States
Dollars) which the bank now unquestionably expects to
be claimed by any of his available foreign next of kin
or alternatively be donated to a discredited trust
fund for alms and ammunition at a military war college
here in Nigeria.
Fervent valuable efforts has been
made by the UNION BANK to get in touch
with any of the CLARKE family or relatives but all
have proved to no avail. It is because of the
perceived possibility of not going to be able to
locate any of late Engr. SANN CLARKE's next of kin (he
had no known wife and children) that the management
under the influence of our Chairman, board of
directors, that an arrangement for
the fund to be declared "UNCLAIMABLE" and then be
subsequently donated to the Trust Fund for Alms and
war in Africa and the world in general.
In order to avert this negative development, myself
and some of my trusted colleagues here at the bank
now seek for your permission to have you stand as late
Engr. SANN CLARKE's next of kin so that the fund,
USD$27.5M USD would be subsequently transferred and
paid into your bank account as the beneficiary next of
kin. All documents and proves to enable you get this
fund would be carefully worked out and we are assuring
you a 100% risk free involvement. For your assistance,
your commission would be 20%. 70% will be for myself and my
colleagues for investment purposes in your country and the remaining
10% will be set aside to off set any exenses that would come
up in the course of the transfer.
If this proposal is OK. by you and you do not wish to
take advantage of the trust we hope to bestow on you
and your company, then kindly get back to
me and furnishing me with your most confidential telephone and
fax numbers and exclusive e-mail so that we can forward
to you the relevant details of this transaction.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated co-operation.
