I have decided to contact you through this medium based on a business proposal which will be of mutual benefit to both of us if treated with trust and confidentiality.
However,be informed that I discovered your person/company through your country's trade and enquiry unit here in Federal Rep Of Nigeria.During an usual Bank auditing,we discovered an abandoned sum of US$35,000,000.000(THIRTY FIVE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS)in an account that belongs to one of our foreign custormers who died in a plane crash. who was so cruel to abandon this poor little 35Mio ?
Since we got information about his death,we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim the money because we can not release it unless some body apply for it as his next of kin or relation as indicted in our banking guidelines.
Unfortunately,no body has turned up to cliam this money.It is based on this that I and some other top officials in my department decided to establish a cordial businees relationship with you hence my contacting you.We want you to present yourself as the next of kin or relation of the deceased so that we can release the money and transferit into your nominatd oversea account for safety and subsequent disbursement since no body is willing to come for it.
If the money is not claimmed in the nearest future then it will definitely go into the Government account as unclaimmed bill and this is what we are trying to avoild,the banking law and guidelines here stipulates that any account abandoned or dormant for a long period of time will be deemed closed and all money contained therein will be forfeited to the government treasury account,now it is been speculated that the above money will be transferred into the government account as an unclaimed sum on or before september 2003.
I do solicit for your collabration in this business to present yourself as the next of kin and this is occasioned because of the fact that the deceased was a foreigner.
We have agreed to give you 30% of the total money for your assistance,10% has already been mapped out to defray all cost incurred by both parties in the course of this transaction and 60% will be for me and my colleagues.
If this proposal matches with your inward intentions for success and greatness,then you are urged to make a quick response indicating your readiness and interest to participate in the business.
Note that this transaction is 100% risk free as we will make sure that we do every thing in accordance with the Federal Rep Of Nigeria capital control unit hence all modalities for safe business has been put in place.Please treat this proposal as strictly confidential for our mutual long term benefit.I hope to hear from you soon.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Dear Mr. Usman
22 JUL 2003
I would like to use this opportunity to apologise to you for the delay in replying to your letter a little bit late, it was due to the fact that I have been very busy with work in the Office.
Personally I would like to use this opportunity to advise you that I have the faith and believe that you are someone who would be well trusted and reliable and I believe that it was because of these reasons that the Almighty God made it possible for me and my partners to come in contact with to ask you for your kind assistance in the successful execution of the transaction.
Be informed that my partners and I have actually planned this transaction very well, such that we would gradually process some very legal and authentic documents in your name and favor at the various Offices down here which would show and guarantee that the you have some very strong relationship and links with the late foreign businessman who died in the plane crash as his Authorised/Appointed Next of Kin and Receiver to his funds/assets down here in the our Bank in Nigeria.
Meanwhile I would like to give further update on the steps for the processing of the transaction for the final transfer of the funds into your Bank Account.
I would like to inform you that what I was trying to explain to you in my e-mail is that there is a foreign businessman who have lived in Nigeria for many years and this foreign businessman has kept some money with our Bank(Union Bank of Nigeria) where I work as a Manager.
Unfortunately this foreign businessman by name Mr. John Mackintosh died in Airplane Crash and since his death our Bank have been trying to locate any of his family members or anyone who is his Next of Kin so that the person would come forward to claim and take the funds which this late foreign businessman left in his Bank Accounts in our Bank.
Unfortunately for the past years that this late foreign businessman died nobody have been able to come to our Bank to claim the funds as his Next of Kin and all efforts by our Bank to locate anybody related to him has not succeeded.
As at this moment the Senior Executive Board of Directors of our Union Bank of Nigeria are trying to seize the funds of which the Board of Directors would later share it among themselves for their personal and family use and then donate just some little percentage of may be 3% of the funds to charity homes/foundations.
Actually I was the Manager that was incharge of the Accounts of this late foreign businessman, and immediately I got the information about the secret plans of these our Bank's Board of Directors, to seize the funds, I told them that I have some information about the Next of Kin of the foreign businessman, which is you and I have told the Board of Directors that you will soon send your Bank Account where the transfer of the funds would be sent to for you to share other family members of the late foreign businessman and to also use to to sustain all the other business and investments that the late businessman have in your country and other countries in Europe.
Rightnow I would inform you about some of the vital information that you will need to send to me so that with that we would start off the processing of some very important documents that would give you the full legal authority to claim the funds as the Appointed Next of Kin to the late foreign businessman.
You would need to send the following information/data to me so that we would be able to process, the Sworn Affidavit of Oath which would show that you are the Appointed Next of Kin and Receiver to all the Funds and Estates of the late businessman in our Bank, and the Death Certificate of the late foreign business man, which would also show that as the Next of Kin of the businessman, his certificate of death was released to you for safe keeping.
You should immediately send to me the following information/data:
Again you should also send to me your detailed Bank Account where the funds wouuld be wire transferred into so that we would use that to process all the needed fund transfer and foreign exchange allocation approval documents in your name and favor for the transfer of the funds to your possession.
As soon as we complete the transfer of the funds into your Account, we would the fly down to your country for the sharing and investment of the funds in your country.
Please do remember to send your direct telephone and fax numbers.
I do thank you so much as I look forward to receiving your prompt reply and do make sure you send to me the above requested information/data so that we would proceed with the processing of the documentations immediately.
Do you Yahoo!?

Dear Mr. Usman,
I would like to use this opportunity to apologise to you for the delay in replying to your letter a little bit late, it was due to the fact that I have been very busy with work in the Office.This is OK for me, as I am busy myself and so I do understand, that a banker is always in action.
that the Almighty God made it possible for me and my partners to come in contact with to ask you for your kind assistance in the successful execution of the transaction.In your first letter you stated: „I discovered your person/company through your country's trade and enquiry unit here in Federal Rep Of Nigeria“
That sounded more reasonably for me, and I think you should keep your nigerian god outside this business, since he may cross our plans, when he coincidently realizes, what we are doing here.
Unfortunately this foreign businessman by name Mr. John Mackintosh ... to claim the funds as the Appointed Next of Kin to the late foreign businessman.Have you read my Name, which I put at the bottom of my eMail? My name is Erich Nigma, not Erich Mackintosh! Noone would believe, that I am the next of kin of a John Mackintosh! Are you sure, that this transaction is „planned very well“ ?
You should immediately send to me the following information/data:  Your Passport Number OR your Driving License Number OR your Identification Card Number.my Identification Card Number:
 Your city location address.Schalke Str. 4
 Your full name and date of birth.Erich Nigma
Again you should also send to me your detailed Bank Account where the funds wouuld be wire transferredAccountNo: 184436533
Floetz Dicke Bank, Dortmund
Please do remember to send your direct telephone and fax numbers.This won't work because I am deaf. My secretary can reached at 01 90 80 94 38, but I think, she shouldn't be involved in all this matters, since she is not a reliable person, who is talking, talking, talking all the day. Some day she gets fired without warning, and I don't want her to know about this transaction. Fax-machines are like klingons. I never trusted a fax-machine and I never will. Email will do a better job, don't you think so?
Stay safe in your bankboard, and keep away, from those senior managers. They seem to be a bunch of criminals, if you ask me.
Hope to hear from you soon

Dear Erich Nigma,
I have carefully read through your e-mail and I could clearly understand the points you raised therein.
I have also noted your detailed personal information/data and also your detailed Bank Account information for the transaction, of which we would go ahead with the processing of the fund transfer approvals and other vital back up documentations that would give we and you the legal rights to have the funds moved into your safe Bank Account.
Coming to the issue you raised as per the fact that your name is Erich Nigma and not Erich Mackintosh, of which you have felt that it may not be possible for the Bank or other authorities to accept you as the Next of Kin to the late business man Mr. John Mackintosh.
Please do understand at this point that this issue would never be any stumbling block to the success of this transaction, as you understand that it does not necessarily mean that the Next of Kin or Appointed Reciever/Representative of any Account beneficiary would bear the same surname of the late businessman, afterall you could be an Uncle or Nephew or Cousin to the late businessman ( Yes, that could be, as I remember, I was always late in school. On the other hand, can a man called „Mackintosh“ have any relatives? ), because what is more important is that we procure enough legal documentations that would give the claims and the transaction all the support that it deserves.
As you well know, I am going to work very hard to ensure that we process and procure all the necessary documentations that would give this transaction all the support and backings that it deserves.
As you suggested that we could possibly use the e-mail for the transaction, well it is still okay, but I believe that sometimes it might be necessary for me to send some vital approval documents to you via the fax.
I do thank you so much my good brother as I look forward to receiving your reply and further advise.

Dear AHMEd usman,
As you suggested that we could possibly use the e-mail for the transaction, well it is still okay, but I believe that sometimes it might be necessary for me to send some vital approval documents to you via the fax.May be I wrote words, that were not clear enough, I'll try it again: I DON'T HAVE A FAX AND I NEVER WILL! Do you want me to believe, that the foreign remittance department of Union Bank Plc,Federal Rep Of Nigeria. does not have at least one (1) single scanner? So just procure your legal documents via email
I do thank you so much my good brother as I look forward to receiving your reply and further advise.I don't know your mother nor your father - and since your name is usman, and not Nigma, we are no brothers, even though afterall you could be an Uncle or Nephew or Cousin.
May the farce be with you

Dear Erich Nigma,
I must tell you that after reading this your last e-mail to me, I kept wondering if you and I are having any quarrels previously, because the way and manner you wrote the e-mail does not really sound good to me.
You were sort of using stern words, I have never said that it is compulsory that you should have a FAX and I have never told you that either myself or the Union Bank of Nigeria does not have a Scanner, rather I was merely trying to make you understand that it is also important to send such documents to you via FAX.
Considering the fact that it seems to me that you would definitely prefer to have whatever documents available sent to you via the e-mail as an ATTACHMENT, then I would endeavor to have whatever documents that comes my way in respect of this our transaction sent to you via the e-mail as an Attachment.
Again it is because I did address you as "my brother" that you decided to write to me that you don't know either my mother or my father, of which I should not address you as my brother.
It rather uncalled for that you are sort of behaving in this manner, I do not see any sin in me addressing you as my brother, but all the same, take notice of it that henceforth I would only address by your name, even though if you turn out tomorrow to be my cousin or brother or nephew, though I know that this would never happen.
As the case may be, I would like to use this opportunity to advise you that the processing of the documentations in your name and favor is actually progressing , and as soon as we make major headway, I would definitely give you more updates.
I do thank you so much and please be advised that for you and I to make the desired progress and achieve success in this transaction we would learn to understand and believe in each other and then work with spirit to ensure that we achieve the desired success.
Thank you so much and may the good Bless us and give us the desired success in this transaction.

Dear AHMEd usman
and as soon as we make major headway, I would definitely give you more updates.OK, I will wait for further updates.
we would learn to understand and believe in each otherI am learning every day. I hope you too.
and then work with spirit to ensure that we achieve the desired success.Here is one more thing to learn for you: In my country, working with spirit is a rather crazy thing, and will leave to troubles, rather than "achieve the desired success". By the way, driving with spirit is a crime!
