Dear Sir,

I crave your indulgence as I contact you in such a surprising manner.
But I respectfully insist you  read this letter carefully as  I am
optimistic it will open doors for unimaginable financial reward for
both of us.

This business transaction might not fall within the wide spectrum of
your business activities, but I plead your assistance, as
your flair for profitable business is needed.

Permit me to introduce myself, I am Mr.FRED UBAKA Manager, Union Bank
of Nig.Plc, I am writing this letter to ask for your support and
co-operation to carry out this business opportunity in my department.

Every five years, Nigerian banks transfer to its treasury millions of
dollars of unclaimed deceased depositors funds in compliance with the
banking laws and guidelines, in majority of cases with reference to
my bank-union bank of Nig.Plc, the money normally runs into several
millions of dollars.

A foreigner, Late Engineer Johnson Creek, an Oil Merchant/Contractor
in Nigeria, until his death four years ago in a ghastly air crash
has a closing balance of US9,500,000.00 (Nine Million, Five Hundred
Thousand Dollars) Ever since his death and up till this time
of writing, no next-of-kin or relation of his has come forward
to claim his money with us. Fervent valuable efforts have been made
by Union Bank to get in touch with any of the Creek's family or
relatives but proved to no avail.

Naturally, as long as Johnson's money remains unclaimed, the bank
remains richer in free funds with his money. However, with
my position, I can present you to claim the fund as a relative/next
of kin if you agree with me on private basis. Yes, I can present you.

The request for you as next of kin in this business is occasioned by
the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Nigerian cannot stand
as next of kin to a foreigner. Hence, I plead for your assistance
with the intention of getting this unclaimed money amounting to
US9,500,000.00 (Nine Million, Five Hundred Thousand Dollars Only)
transferred into a company/private bank account that you will present.

You stand to gain a negotiable percentage of the fund if you agree to help
me actualize this opportunity; I will not contact any other company or
person until I am convinced that you are not interested in this proposal.

Contact me immediately indicating your willingness and also give your
direct and confidential fax and phone numbers for the effective
communication that this transaction requires.

I will furnish you with the procedure and also enlighten you on how
the funds will be disbursed and shared on receipt of your response.
I will also require your advice in the areas of investment as
I plan to establish a business venture in your country with my share.

Please reach me only on this private email address:[email protected]
or Fax No:234-1-7597602. Remember that a business of this nature
needs to be kept confidential.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr.Fred Ubaka.

Check out this site that is collecting variations of this scam:

some of the funniest are where people reply and see how far they can
string the scammers along.

I've also received an email of this sort in the past... Amusing in the short term, get's older the 50th time you recieve a different, but similar, email.

Can't believe people would fall for this though
