I Await Your Urgent Response

From: Wilfred Obi -

Wilfred Obi
Union Bank of Nigeria Plc
Lagos Nigeria

Dear Friend,

I am Wilfred Obi, Branch Manager Union Bank of Nigerian plc, I have an urgent and very profitable business proposition for you that should be handled with extreme confidentiality.

On January 12, 1997 a Consultant and contractor with the British Water Corporation Mr. Sean Burke by name made a numbered time Fixed Deposit for twelve calendar months valued at US$20.9M (Twenty Million, Nine Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) in my branch. Upon maturity I sent a routine notification in accordance with the Bank Policies to his
forwarding address but got no reply. After a month we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers British Water Corporation that Mr. Sean Burke died in the Korean Air Flight {801}, which crashed in Guam, on August 6, 1997.

On further investigation, we found out that he died without making a Will and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigations and discovered that Mr. Sean Burke did not declare any next of kin or relations in his entire official documents including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank.

This sum of US$20.9M has been carefully moved out of my bank to a Financial and Security Company for safe keeping. No one will ever come forward to claim it and according to the Law of My country, at the expiration of 10 years the money will revert to the Ownership of the British Government, if nobody applies to claim the Fund. We decided to contact you to assist me receive his money for safe Keeping and investments on his behalf as everything will be taken over by the government as provided in section 129 sub 63(N), Africa Banking Edit of 1961.

This prompted us to contact you. We want to front you as the next of kin of our late client thereby making you the legal beneficiary of the sum of $20.9 million U.S Dollars that is presently in a Financial and Security Company.
I contacted you because it is against the civil service code of ethics to own and operate foreign accounts and your assistance would be needed to claim the money in the Financial and Security Company The Transaction is 100% legal and totally free of risks as all modalities has been perfected to ensure the hitch free success of the transaction. Upon my receipt of your reply confirming your willingness to assist me of this transaction, I will immediately arrange and transfer all the rights of ownership of this fund to your name to facilitate your easy clearance and transfer of the complete funds to your country.

You have nothing to worry about, as I will be there to assist you in anyway necessary with all proper documentation.
