C/O UNION BANK PLC (UB)
56 AJAYI STREET IKOYI
ISLAND, LAGOS NIGERIA ,
I am Mr. STEVE MATINS of UNION Bank PLC .I am the
account manager of late Mr. ERIC SHELTON
who used to work with famous oil company (shell Development )
On the 3rd of jan. 2008,our customer, his wife and their two children
were involved in a ghastly motor accident along kaduna-abuja(FCT)
express way where all the occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then
I have made several enquiries to locate any of his
extended relatives and this has proved abortive.
After these several unsuccessful attempts,I decided to contact you for
your assistance to transfer the sum of(US$3.5M) (Three Million five hundred thousand United States Dollars)
that was left behind by our customer in our bank
The banking Law and guideline of UNION BANK stipulates that if such money remained
unclaimed for over one year, the money will be converted into bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
My reason of contacting is for you to provide an account where the bank will tranfer the money to you.
I agree that 40 % of this money will be for you, and 60 % would be for me,
I also want to assure you that this transaction is risk free, therefore you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required
arrangements have been made for the transfer .
Awaiting your immediate response
