Dear sir,

First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction which by the
virtue of its nature requires top most confidentiality and secrecy.

I am aware that a proposal of this magnitude can make anyone apprehensive
and worried but I can assure you that all is well and that there is no
need for doubts.  It is clear that I am not known to you hence this little

I am the Manager Bills and Exchange of the Foreign Remittance Department
of the Union Bank of Nigeria (UBN) with Headquarters in Lagos and formally
known as Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS AG Zurich, Switzerland).  In
accordance with the Federal Government policy on indigenization law on
company and allied matters of Jan 1977, I write this message to ask for
your support, assistance and co-operation to consummate this transaction.
We just discovered an abandoned sun of US$15.5M (Fifteen Million Five
Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) in an account belonging to
our foreign customer who died with his entire family in the ill-fated
Kenyan Air Line, which crashed into the Indian Ocean in Comoros Island a
few years back.  Since this incident, we have repeatedly advertised for
his Next of Kin or any close relation to come forward to claim this fund
but nobody showed up.

Based on this, I have decided to look for a trusted foreign partner who
can be trusted to stand as the Next Kin to the deceased and claim this
money. I need a foreigner as a partner and that was why you are contacted
because I do not want this money to go into the Bank's Treasury as
unclaimed fund.

All necessary documents to effect this process will emanate from my table
and all would be perfected to be in accordance with the International
Banking laws and procedures.  You have nothing to fear.  I have agreed
that 30% of the total sum will be for you, 10% for sundry expenses and for
charity while 60% is for me.

I am therefore, requesting that you send me immediately your private phone
and fax numbers indicating your full names to enable us commence action.
Send them through the e-mail above or E-mail: marcnnewi@yahoo.co.uk.

Hoping to hear from you soonest.
