I am Mrs. Amina salah Mohammed, The group head, Banking Operation Department of foreign operations Department Diamond Bank of Nigeria. I am writing following information I received from one of my friends who run an information technology constancy firm.

Although, I did not tell him the details of the business I will want to do. In my department, I discovered an abandoned sum of US$32.5million (thirty-two million, five hundred thousand United States Dollars) in an account belonging to one of our foreign customers who died alongside with his entire family in November 1997 in a plane crash.

Since I got the information about his death, I have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because it cannot be claimed unless somebody applies as his next of kin as indicated in our banking guide. Unfortunately, I discovered that all his supposed next of kin died with him over the plane crash incident.

For over two years, I decided to look for the necessary papers relating to the deposit in order to make business out of it hence the deposit was made in my branch. Now that all papers are ready, I am asking for your assistant to release the money to you as next of kin or relation to the deceased for safe keeping and subsequent disbursement, hence nobody showed up for it and I don't want this money to go back into Federal Government account as unclaimed bill as soon as the next audit is completed.

Thebanking law and guideline here stipulates that such money if remain unclaim after two years of maturity, it will be transferred into banking treasury as unclaimed effect. The request of a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Nigerian cannot stand as a next of kin to a foreigner. I am ready to negotiate the mode of sharing with you.

Thereafter I will visit your country for the disbursement/investing of my share according to the percentages we agreed upon. To enable the immediate transfer of the fund, you must apply first to the bank as next of kin to the deceased. Note this transaction requires utmost confidentiality. And I am assuring you that it is 100% risk free so you need not be afraid. I expect a positive response from you soonest. Send Reply to (amina_salah2@faithmail.com)

Best regards,
Mrs. Amina salah mohammed
