Subject: [Spam] LETTER From the Desk of: Samuel Okafor
With great pleasure I Samuel Okafor, working with a bank here in
Nigeria as a Manager. I am writing you in respect of a foreign customer
(an Oil consultant/contractor with our National Oil & Liquidified
Gas Sector) whom made a US$25M depository for an investment program
that has remained dormant for years now. Hence, I have decided to
contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.
On personal investigation, I discovered that the account holder
died on December 2002 in the Ukrainian aircraft crash. I made further
investigation and discovered that the customer died without making
a WILL on the depository.
It may interest you to know that I am only contacting you as a
foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a local Bank
account here, but can only be approved to a foreigner with an account
since the money is in US Dollars. I have decided as a matter of
urgency upon this discovery now seek your permission to have you
stand as next of kin to the fund as No one has ever come forward
to claim this fund. It may also interest you to know that I have
secured from the probate an ORDER OF MADAMUS to locate any of deceased
beneficiary. In accordance to Nigerian Law, fund deposited for over
a period of Six (6) years without claim will be reverted to the
Government treasury, if nobody applies to claim this fund.
I will like you to provide immediately your full Names and Address,
Date of Birth, Occupation, Tel & Fax Numbers so that an Attorney
will be able to prepare the necessary documents and affidavit which
will put you in place as the next of kin. The Attorney will draft
and carry out the notarization of the WILL and also obtain the necessary
documents and letter of probate/administration in your favour for
At the successful conclusion of this business, your goodself shall
be entitled to have 40% that is, USD$10M of the total money while
I will have 55% that is USD$13.750M and 5% that is USD$1.250M for
communications and other expenses. I am ready to invest a reasonable
percentage of mine into any viable business you suggest as a joint
partner. Your percentage will also be a source of upliftment. You
have absolutely nothing to LOSE in assisting me instead, you have
so much to GAIN. Be rest assured that this transaction would be
most profitable for both of us.
Your response is highly imperative as this is a TWO-man business
deal transaction as I shall then provide you with more details and
relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.
I need your assistance and co-operation to this reality as I have
done my home-work and fine tune the best way to create you as the
beneficiary while I would use my connection and money to secure
almost all the paperwork for this transaction which will be done
by the Attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees
the successful execution of this transaction with you as the beneficiary
to this fund.
I will appreciate your early reply for commencement of business.
Contact me for acknowledgement by E-mail and whereby you are not
interested, please indicate in your reply so that I can seek for
the assistance of someone else.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, I expect that you will not
take undue advantage of the trust I Will bestow in you. I await
your urgent response.
