My Dear Friend,

How are you doing today? I will explain my self little to you before I
continue. I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign
remittance department of UNITED BANK FOR AFRICA (UBA).I am writing to
seek your interest over a partnership business transaction.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $15m US dollars
(FIFTEENMILLIONS US DOLLARS). In an account that belongs to one of our
foreign customer who died along with his entire family in November
2014 plane crash. Since we got information about his death, we have
been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money
because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of
kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines
but unfortunately I learnt that all his supposed next of kin or
relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody
behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and
one other official in my department have decided to make this business
proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or
relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since
nobody is coming for it and we don’t want this money to go into the
Bank's treasury as unclaimed Bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money
remained unclaimed after seven years, the money will be transferred
into the Bank's treasury as unclaimed fund.The request of a foreigner
as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the
customer was a foreigner and a citizen of our country cannot stand as
next of kin to a foreigner.

We agree 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 the business and 50 % would be for
me and my colleague.

Thereafter I will visit your country for disbursement of the fund
according to the percentages indicated in this proposal. Therefore to
enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, You
must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the
deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your
private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication
and location where in the money will be remitted. Upon receipt of your
reply, I will send to you by email the format of the application.

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 by me and my colleague in the
bank for the smooth and effective transfer of the money into your
designated bank account that you provide. You should contact me
immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from
you immediately. Time is not a negligible factor in
this business because we have limited time at our disposal.

Yours faithfully

Barrister Ben Sherman

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
