From Mr Micheal Larry
From Mr Micheal Larry
Orient Bank of Nigeria,
Victoria Island Branch,
I am Mr Micheal Larry , Accountant with Orient Bank of Nigeria, Victoria Island Branch, Lagos, Nigeria. I have an urgent and very profitable business proposition for you that should be handled with extreme confidentiality.
On January 6,2001 a Foreign Oil Consultant and contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Mr. John Mike by name made a numbered time Fixed Deposit for twelve calendar months valued at US$8.6M (Eight Million, Six Hundred United States Dollars Only) in my branch.
Upon maturity I sent a routine notification in accordance with the Bank policy 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 (NNPC) that Mr. John Mike died from an automobile accident.
On further investigation, we found out that he died without making a Will and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigations and discovered that Mr John Mike . did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank.This sum of US$8.6M has been carefully moved out of my bank to a Security Company for safekeeping.
No one will ever come forward to claim it and according to Nigerian Law, at the expiration of 5 years the money will revert to the ownership of the Nigerian Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. This prompted us to contact you.We will like to front you as the next of kin of our late client thereby making you the legal beneficiary of the sum of $8.6 million U.S Dollars that is presently in a Security Company .
I contacted you because it is against our code of ethics to own and operate foreign accounts and your assistance would be needed to claim the money in the Security Company . We have unanimously agreed that 30% of the entire sum would be for you if you agree to take part in this profitable transaction,70% for me and 2 of my colleagues.
In the event that you are genuinely interested in the transaction,the following information would be needed from you to expedite action.
1) Your Full Name and Address that would be used to establish you as the next of kin of our late client thereby making you the legal beneficiary of the fund. This would ensure that the Security Company releases the Consignment/Fund to you.
2) Your Private Mobile,Telphone and Fax numbers where you can be reached at all time because this transaction entails constant communication.
The transaction is 100% risk free as all modalities has been perfected to ensure the hitch free success of the transaction.
If you are interested, send the requested information
via email .alternative email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I await your response urgently.
Mr Micheal Larry
