UNION BANK PLC.
First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, this is by virtue of its nature as being utterly CONFIDENTIAL and TOP SECRET. [ yeah, yeah, whatever ] Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one 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 by e-mail due to the urgency of this transaction, as we have been reliably informed of it's swiftness and confidentiality. Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you. I am MR Rafiu Momoh , a Manager at the Union Bank Nigeria PLC, Lagos. I came to know of you in my private search for a reliable and reputable person to handle a very confidential transaction which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account requiring maximum confidence.THE PROPOSITION:
A foreigner, late Engineer Johnson Creek, an Oil Merchant / contractor with the federal Govenment of Nigeria, until his death three years ago in a ghastly air crash, banked with us here at Union Bank PLC., Lagos, and had a closing balance of USD$38.M ( Thirty Eight Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which the bank now unquestionably expects to be claimed by any of his available foreign next of kin or alternatively be donated to a discredited trust fund for alms and ammunition at a military war college here in Nigeria.
Fervent valuable efforts are being made by the Union Bank to get in touch with any of the Creek family or relatives but all have proved to no avail.It is because of the perceived possibility of not going to be able to locate any of late Engr. Johnson Creek's next of kin (he had no known wife and children) that the management under the influence of our Chairman, board of directors, Retired Major General Kalu Uke Kalu, that an arrangement for the fund to be declared "UNCLAIMABLE" and then be subsequently donated to the Trust Fund for Alms and Ammunition which will further enhance the course of war in Africa and the world in general.
In order to avert this negative development, myself and some of my trusted colleagues in the bank now seek for your permission to have you stand as late Engr. Johnson Creek's next of kin so that the fund, USD$38.5M would be subsequently transferred and paid into your bank account as the beneficiary next of kin. All documents and proves to enable you get this fund have been carefully worked out and we are assuring you a 100% risk free involvement. Your share would be 30% of the total amount. 10% has been set aside for expenses while the rest would be for myself and my colleagues for investment purposes in your country.
If this proposal is OK. by you and you do not wish to take advantage of the trust we hope to bestow on you and your company, then kindly get to me immediately via my e-mail furnishing me with your most confidential telephone, fax number and exclusive e-mail so that I can forward to you the relevant details of this transaction.Thank you in advance for your anticipated co-operation.
MR RAFIU MOMOH,
Here is his response:
Date: Wed, 27 Sep 2000 17:08:49 -0400 (EDT)
Thanks for your urgent response.I was really worried when I did hear from you very some few day.Please my friend I would want to asure you that in this project you don't have anything to worry about all what I need from you is to sent a letter of claims to the International Remittance Departmant. Let me start by telling you the genessis of my contacting you.
I had a friend, who I met several years ago while on
a course on banking innovation in your country. He was a nice friend whom
I exchanged a lot of idears with. [ oh dear ]
Unfortunately, I lost his contact address. Now when this
opprtunity came by and we at the bank wanted somebody to assume the
next of kin of late J. Creek, I decided to serach for his
contact address. But when I consulted the internet for that, your contact email came out. I wonderd whether to tell you of this transaction,
[ after all, there are only about 6 billion other people in the world ]
but when we realised that we can not allow that fund to be used for donation to the war collage, we decided to contact you, hoping that we can trust you.
Now, our fear is, whether you can keep this secret to your self. I have told you that all modalities have been perfectly worked out. This is a 100% risk free transaction. If we can trust you, then you would have to keep to my instruction to make this money get to your account. I have worked in this bank for about 16 years and I konw what is obtainable in this type of transaction. Furthermore, my country is a very corrupt one where everybody has to engage in deals like this to survive. Also, it is not every day that things like this happen, because not everyday that people tell you the source of there wealth. If you keep your ears to the ground, you would find out that a lot more happen. This, though, is not an entirely corrupt transaction, but one with every ethical backing.
So, if you are capable of handling this project, then call me om my CONFIDENTIAL tel/fax number: + 234 1 2673257 or send to letter of claims below to the banks for us to kick off this project.I shall also try and call tommorow morning.I expect your response urgently. Thank you and God bless you RAFIU. ************************************
Please I would want you to fill the letter of claims below and send to the International Remittance Department office of my Bnak so hopefully by the end of next week the funds should be in your account.And please you most not mention my name to any body and even act as if you know any one here in Nigeria.
ATTENTION: MRS. GRACE EFFIONG
