From - John Cole -

Atten. Mrs Holsaple,

I am the personal Account Relation officer to Mr.Mark Holsaple,a national of your country, who is an Oil consultant/ contractor with the Nigerian Mining Corporation. My customer made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for Twelve Calendar months, valued at US$6,500,000.00 (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.

On October 31st 1999, My customer, his wife and their three children perished in a plane crash [WITH EGYPTIAN AIRLINE 990] with other passengers aboard All occupants of the plane unfortunately lost their lives. Since then we have not had any body coming for the claims as the next of kin. A situation I have monitored closely with my position in the bank. Now, having monitored this deposit over the years after his death, and hence nobody has showed up as the next of kin for the past five (5) years, I have moved the file to my private volt. The amount is not so much at the moment and plus all the accumulated interest the balance in this account stands at- (US$6.5million US dollars). I have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my customers extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.

I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my customer before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by my bank where this huge deposit was lodged. Particularly, The investigation Department of my bank where the deceased had an account valued US$6,500,000.00 (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars). Have issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days. And according to Laws Federal Republic of Nigeria, at the expiration of 5 (five) Years, the money will revert to the ownership of The Nigerian Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 5 years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name with my customer"Holsapple" so that the proceeds of this account valued at $6.5 million dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money.
