I am Rex Bode, the Human Resources Executive of Atlantic Oil & Gas
Corporation. On the 15th of May 2003, Philips lob, an expatriate, who was a
consultant/contractor with the Corporation, was found to have died in a plane
crash along the Lekki Peninsula while on inspection tour of offshore oil
facilities belonging to the Corporation.
As the Welfare Director of the corporation, I contacted Philips bankers and
briefed them of this development. The bankers informed me that since their
client is dead, it is only the next of kin to the deceased with the proper
legal documents that can compel them to pay his fixed deposit as an inherited
estate. With the position of the financial outfit, I mandated the legal
department of our firm to search for a relative of the deceased so that he
can be presented as the next of kin to the bank.
But the only relative of the deceased, one Mr. Sam Leonard who was also the
next of kin to the deceased according to his bank documents and who was last
known to have lived in Latvia Eastern Europe, died as cancer patient some two
months before his death. All efforts to trace other relatives of the deceased
proved abortive, as all available links were exhusted. Three years after his
death, with no news from any relative living anywhere and no one coming
forward, we decided to seek a foreigner so that the fund can be transferred
out of its present account to yours.
The account deposit contains US$12 million United States Dollars and it is
important that a probable next of kin claims this fund within the next
fourteen official working days. If no one comes for the claim before the
stipulated time frame, the account would be closed as inactive and dormant
and funds sent to the coffers of the government. This is in consonance with
the stipulations of the enabling laws governing foreign inherited estates.
I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased.This
would facilitate the payment of the proceeds of the said account to you. All
I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this through. I
guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will
protect all the parties involved from any breach of the law. Please let me
know what you intend to have as your commission if you agree to embark on
