FROM United Bank for Africa

Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria

Dear Sir/Ma,

Please accept my apologies if this request does not meet your personal
ethics as it is not intended to cause you any embarrassment in what
ever form. I got your contact email address from the internet
directory and decided to contact you for this transaction that is
based on trust and your outstanding. I have an interesting business
proposal for you that will be of immense benefit to both of us.

Although this may be hard for you to believe because i know that there
is absolutely going to be a great doubt and distrust in your heart in
respect of this email as this might sound strange to you and coupled
with the fact that, so many individuals have taken possession of the
Internet to facilitate their nefarious deeds, thereby making it
extremely difficult for genuine and legitimate persons to get
attention and recognition. Please grant me the benefit of doubt and
hear me out.

My name is Mr.Godwine Emefiele. I work with UBA Bank here in Nigeria
as a branch bank manager. I discovered an abandoned sum of
$19,850,000.00 (Nineteen Million Eight Hundred And Fifty Thousand
unites state Dollar) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign
customers Late Dr. Erin Jacobson, an American citizen who
unfortunately lost his life and his entire family in Montana plane
crash on March 23, 2009, on their way to a group ski vacation.The
choice of contacting you is aroused from the geographical nature of
where you live, particularly due to the sensitivity of this
transaction and the confidentiality herein.

Now our bank has been waiting for any of the relatives to come up for
the claim but nobody has done that. I personally tried to locate any
member of his family but have been unsuccessful in locating the
relatives for 7 years now, i have also checked the deposit documents
and discovered that he did not declare any next of kin on the deposit.

Now the Management of our bank instructed me to look for the next of
kin or they will convert the funds into the Government Treasury
Account as unclaimed funds and the funds will be wasted. Therefore, I
cannot claim these funds without presenting a foreigner to stand as
next of kin. This is reason why I contacted you to seek your consent
to present you as an next of kin so that the funds will be release to
you, then we share it 50% for me and 50% for you because am not a
greedy person and is deal between me and you.

I have employed the service of an Attorney who will secure all
necessary legal documents that could be used to back up this claim.
All the attorney need to do is to fill in your names to the documents
and legalize it in the Court here to prove you as the legitimate next
of kin to the late depositor Dr. Erin Jacobson then the bank will
release the funds to you as the rightful beneficiary.

This is a fair deal without any risk attached either on your part or
on my part as long as we comply with the laws governing the claiming
of funds in our establishment. All I require is your honest
co-operation to enable us sees this deal through, and with my position
in the bank as a bank manager, I will do every thing possible to
protect your interest and to make sure everything workout

If you are interested in this deal, kindly send me your complete
information, your full names and address, Your Private telephone and
Fax numbers, and Cell phone so that the attorney will start processing
the necessary paperwork that would facilitate the release of the funds
to you.

Send your following information to my personel email address

Mr.Godwine Emefiele
