Zenith Bank Ltd,Lagos,Nigeria,
I am .DR FRED OKAFOR. Bank Manager of Zenith Bank, Lagos, Nigeria.
I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.
On April 6, 1996, a Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mr.Barry Kelly made a numbered time
(Fixed) Deposit for some months, valued at S$29,500,000.00 (Twenty Nine
Million Five hundred Thousand Dollars only) 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
discovered from his contract employers, the Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation that Mr. Barry Kelly died on 1 February 1997 in a plane crash on air
Senegal on aircraft Name Hawker Siddeley HS-748.
This crash happened in Tam! ! bacoumba, Senegal, Africa and the
registration number of the aircraft is 6AV-AEO, and since his untimely death the
funds has been dormant in his account with my Bank without any claim of the
fund 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. Barry
Kelly did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents,
including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of
US$29,500,000.00 has carefully been moved out of my bank to a security
company for safe-keeping. No one will ever come forward to claim it.
According to Nigerian Law, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the
money will revert to the ownership of the Nigerian Government if nobody
applies to claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as an Foreigner to
stand in as the owner of the money I d! ep! osited it in a security company in
two trunk boxes though the security company does not know the contents of
the boxes as I tagged them to be photographic materials for export. I am
writing you because I as a public servant,we can not 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.
All these are to make sure that the fruits of this old man's labor
will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is
simple. I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so
that the Attorney will prepare the necessary documents which will put you in
place as the as the owner of the boxes. The money will be moved out for us to
share in the ratio of 70% for me and 25% for you and 5% will take care of
There is no risk at all as all the paperwork! for! this transaction
will be done by the Attorney and this will guarantee the successful execution
of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately via
my email address. upon your response, I shall then provide you with more
details and relevant documents that will help you understand the
Please observe with utmost confidentiality, and be 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.
DR. FRED OKAFOR.
