Dear Friend,

I am contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a huge sum of money
from a deceased account.Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude
will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all
will be well at the end of the day. We decided to contact you due to the
urgency of this transaction.I am an american residence in Nigeria and the
manager of the above named bank.


We discovered an abandoned sum of (Twenty Million United states Dollars) in
an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with
his entire family. Since his death, none of his next-of-kin or relations has
come forward to lay claims to this money as the heir. We cannot release the
fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to
the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.

Upon this discovery, we now seek your permission to have you stand as a next
of kin to the deceased as all documentations will be carefully worked out by
us for the funds (Twenty Million United states Dollars) to be released in
your favour as the beneficiary's next of kin.

It may interest you to note that we have secured from the probate an order
of madamus to locate any of deceased beneficiaries. Please acknowledge
receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual business endeavour by
furnishing me with the following;

1. Your Full Names and Address.

2. Direct Telephone and Fax numbers.

These requirements will enable us file a letter of claim to the appropriate
departments for necessary approvals in your favour before the transfer can
be made. We shall be compensating you with 3 Million Dollars on final
conclusion of this project, while the rest shall be for us. Your share stays
with you while the rest shall be for us for investment purposes in your

If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the
trust we have bestowed in you, I await your urgent email.

Best regards,


This is my standard reply - I modify it to fit the received email. Feel free to use all or part of it.

I apologize for the late reply; I was out of the country on business.

How unfortunate the tragic death of Engineer Liang Shaiming and his family.
I certainly do appreciate your efforts at locating any heirs prior to
contacting me.

As Director of Securities, you are no doubt intimately familiar with
the complex international laws regarding the transfer of this large sum
of monies.

In order to protect my interests, I will need the following from you:

1. Verification of funds. Please provide me the name, address, telephone
number and account number of the financial institution where the funds
are maintained. My attorney will then verify that the funds are available.

2. Next, I will need the name, address and telephone number of your
corporate attorney.

3. I will provide your attorney with the information necessary to contact
my attorney.

4. I will then require an international cashier's check in the amount
of $25,000.00 (twenty-five thousand dollars). My attorney will provide
the transfer details. These funds will be a sign of good faith on your
part, and will be used to cover any miscellaneous expenses on my part.
These funds will also be used to send a representative from my organization
to meet personally with your representative in order to complete the
transfer of funds in a more formal manner. I always prefer face-to-face
meetings when dealing with such a lucrative event. Your $25,000.00 will
be returned to you upon the completion of our transactions.

I'm looking forward to our business partnership.
