Re Golden Finance Opportunity

From: Maureen Maccido -

My Dear Friend,

I am Mrs. Maureen Maccido of Union Bank of Nigeria Plc. I have a foreign client who died in a bomb blast and has no next of kin in his record, see details of this bomb blast at

Since then I have made several enquiries at your Embassy to locate any of my client's extended relatives, this has proved unsuccessful. After these several futile efforts, I decided to trace his relatives over the internet, to see if I can locate any member of his family but to no avail, hence I am contacting you.

I have contacted you to assist me in repatriating the money left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by this bank where this huge deposit of US$4.7 million was made, the bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$4.7M can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money; 50% to me and 50% to you, I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make, all I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

Anticipating your prompt response.

Mrs. Maureen Maccido
