BenKey Posted January 29, 2005 Report Share Posted January 29, 2005 Received this in an email. Is the catch I call this number and get charged $1500 to my phone bill? ----------------------------------- Mr Ola Jacob 234-8034949321 Email:[email protected] Attn:Ben Key I am Mr Ola Jacob,the Principal partner to late Mr.Mark Key,a national of your country,who used to work with Shell Development Company in Nigeria. On the 21st of july 2001, my partner,his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident along Ikorodu express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my partner's extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the websearch, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the fund valued at US$18.5 million left behind by my partner before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC where this huge amount were deposited. The said UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC has issued a notice to provide the next of kin or have this account confiscated within the next 2 month(42 working days). The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remain unclaimed after three years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request for a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and an indigene cannot stand as next of kin to the deceased assets. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3 years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the procceeds of this account can be paid to you. Therefore, I agreed that 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during this transaction and 50 % would be for me. Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated and agreed upon. I have all necessary information and documents needed to back you up for the claim. All I require from you is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. To enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged above, you must apply first to the Bank as the relation or next of kin to the deceased indicating the location where this money will be remitted. Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or e-mail the text of the application. I will equally direct how to rewrite it and send it to the bank as the next of kin to the late account holder. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
