I am Dr.Musa Dansadau,Bank Manager of Continental Trust Bank,Lagos, Nigeria.
I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.On
December 6, 1997,a Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the Nigerian
printing and minting, Mr.Brian Claude made a numbered time(Fixed)
Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$15,000,000.00,
(fifteen Million,us Dollars) in my branch.
Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding
address but got no reply. After a month,we sent a reminder and finally we disco
vered from his contract employers, the Nigerian printing and
minting that Mr. Brian Claude died from an automobile accident.
On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a
WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Claude
Brian did not declare any kin or relations in all his official
documents,including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank.
This sum of US$15,000,000.00 has carefully been moved out of my bank
to a security company for safekeeping. No one will ever come forward to claim i
t. According to Nigerian Law,at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money wil
l revert to the ownership of the Nigerian Government if nobody applies to claim
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as an Foreigner to
stand in as the owner of the money I deposited it in a security
company in two trunk boxes though the security company does not know the conten
ts of the boxes as I tagged them to be photographic materials
I am writing you because I as a public servant (Manager with the
bank),i cannot operate a foreign account or have an account that is
more than $1m.I want to present you as the owner of the boxes in the
security company so you can be able to claim them with the help of my
attorney. This is simple. I will like you to provide immediately
your full names and address so that the Attorney will prepare the necessary doc
uments which will put you in place as the as the owner of
The money will be moved out for us to share in the ratio of
70% for me and 30% for you. There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for th
is transaction will be done by the Attorney and this will guarantees the succes
sful execution of this transaction.
If you are interested, please reply immediately via my email
address or call me on Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more de
tails and relevant documents that will help you understand
Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall
require your assistance to invest my share in your country.(Buying of
properties like houses, hotels etc)
Please do send me your private/mobile telephone and fax number
so that we can have a smooth communication.
Awaiting your urgent reply via my email or telephone.
Thanks and regards.
