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 due to the urgency of this
transaction, as we have been reliably informed of your
discreteness and ability in a transaction of this
nature and in respect of the publication with the
guardian newspaper dated, 02/02/00.
Let me start by introducing myself properly to you. I
am OBOTE KANALI, CREDIT OFFICER, with 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 this confidential transaction which involves
the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign
account requiring maximum confidence.THE PROPOSITION:
A foreigner, Late DR D. VULYSTEKE an Oil
Merchant/Contractor with the Federal Government of
Nigeria, until his death months ago in the Kenyan
Airways (A310-300) Flight KQ431, banked with us here
at Union Bank of Nigeria Plc, Lagos and had a closing
account balance as at the end of July, 2000 worth
US$18.9M (Eighteen Million, Nine Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars) only, which the Bank now
expects a next of kin to claim as beneficiary.
Valuable efforts have been made by the Union Bank of
Nigeria (UBN) Plc to get in touch with any of the
VULYSTEKEs family or relatives but to no avail.
It is because of the perceived possibility of not
being able to locate any of Late DR D. VULYSTEKEs
next of kin (he had no wife nor children that is known
to us). The management, under the influence of our
Chairman and members of the board of Directors, have
arranged for the funds to be declared Unclaimable
and subsequently be donated to a special governmentTrust Fund.
In order to avert this negative development, some of
my trusted colleagues and I now seek your permission
to have you stand as next of kin to Late DR D.
VULYSTEKE. So that the funds US$18.9M would be
released and paid into your account as the
beneficiary/next of kin. All documents and proofs to
enable you get this fund will be carefully worked out.
We have secured from the Probate Registry an order of
mandamus as it now stands and more so we are assuring
you that this business is 100% hitch free. Your share
stays while the rest would be for myself and my
colleagues for investment purpose. According toagreement between both parties.
As soon as we receive an acknowledgement of receipt of
the message in acceptance of our mutual business
proposal, we would furnish you with the necessary
modalities and disbursement ratio suitable for bothparties.
If this proposal is acceptable to you, then kindly
contact me immediately via E-MAIL. Please
furnish me with your most confidential Telephone/Fax
number so that i can call you and throw more light onthis issue.PLEASE SEND YOUR RESPONSE TO THIS EMAIL ADDRESS. email@example.com.
Thanks for your anticipated co-operation.
