    From:
    Director of Accounts,
    Union Bank of Nig. Plc.

    Request for urgent business relationship

    First,
    I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, this is by
    virtue of it's being very confidential. I am Dr. Lucas Kuku, a
    director with the Union Bank of Nigeria (U.B.N) Plc Lagos. I came to
    know of
    you in my private search for a reliable and reputable person to handle

    this confidential transaction which involves the transfer of a huge sum

    of money to a foreign bank account requiring maximum confidence.

    The proposition, an American, Late Engineer Barry Kelly, an oil
    merchant/contractor with the federal government of Nigeria, until his

    death three years ago in a ghastly motor accident, banked with us here
    at
    union bank of Nigeria plc, Lagos, and had a closing balance of
    US$25m (Twenty Five Million, Dollars), only which the bank now unquestionably expects to be claimed
    by Mr.Barry's next of kin or alternatively be donated to a discredited
    trust

    fund for arms and ammunition at a military war college here in Nigeria.

    Fervent efforts being made by the union bank of Nigeria plc to get in

    touch with any of the Barry Kelly's family has proved abortive. It
    is because of the perceived possibility of not being able to locate
    late engineer Barry's next of kin (He had no wife or children) that
    the
    management under the influence of our chairman and member of the board

    of directors, retired Major Gen. Bensons Maka, that an arrangement be

    made for the funds to be declared "Unclaimed" and subsequently be
    donated to the trust fund for arms and ammunition to further enhance
    the
    cause of war in Africa and the world in general.

    In order to avert this negative development, some of my trusted
    colleagues and I now seek your permission to have you stand as next-of-kin

    to Late engineer Barry Kelly so that the funds USD25m would be
    released and paid into your bank account as the next-of-kin. All
    documents and proofs to enable you get this fund will be carefully worked

    out and more so, we are assuring you of 100% percent risk-free
    involvement. You will get a negotiable percentage of this money for
    assisting us
    in this deal.

    We shall also map out a percentage of this money to take care of
    incidental expenses that may arise in the course of this transaction.
    If
    this proposal is okay by you and assure us that you will not take undue

    advantage of the trust, we hope to bestow on you and your company.

    Please, you can also get back to me through my email address lucas_kuku2001@yahoo.com
    by furnishing me with your confidential
    telephone, Fax number and including your banking particulars so that
    I can use
    these information to apply for the release and subsequent transfer of

    the funds in your favour and benefit into your nominated bank account.

    But if you are not interested please keep it confidential.
    Thank you in anticipation of your cooperation.

    Yours faithfully,
    Director of Account
    Union Bank of Nig.

    nah, it happens all the time. We (my family) get them constantly in the mail. They seem to target people who move around a lot
