FROM MR. TOLA CHUWANG.
STB NIG.PLC. LAGOS-NIGERIA.
I am an Accountant with STB Nig. Plc. My name is MR.TOLA
CHUWANG. I am the Personal Account Manager to one
Engineer BRIAN MONROE a dual National of the United States
of America, and of an Australian origin which he
disclose to me and his personal lawyer. He worked
with the Ajeokuta Steel Rolling Company in Nigeria.
My client and his wife were involved in an auto accident on
the 27st of May, 2003 and they both died after an
unsuccessful attempt by the medical doctors to rescue
Since then, I have made several inquiries to his embassy
to locate any of my client's extended Relatives, but this
has proved unsuccessful. Then after these several
unsuccessful moves, I and his lawyer decided that we
should contact you as the deceased next of kin. The issue
is not whether you have the same last or surname or not, but
the emphasis is just to present you by me and his lawyer
as directed by a magistrate court here in Nigeria.
As his personal Account Manager,I and his lawyer have
made investigations and discovered that he did not state
any next of kin in all his documents with the bank.
I have contacted you to assist in being the beneficiary
as the next of kin to this sum of Fourteen Million Two
Hundred Thousand United States Dollars(US$14.2M)which he
deposited in a fixed deposit account in my Bank(STB NIG.
The fact is that the fiscal policy regulating banks in
Nigeria, does not permit a fixed deposit account whose
owner is dead to remain unclaimed for a period of two
years. This is the reason I have to contact you in ernest
before the Federal Government of Nigeria get this huge
sum of money confisticated as an unclaimed fund.
There will be a mutual agreement on how the percentage
sharing should be decided. But all these will happen
after you must have indicated your interest to assist us by send the
(1) Your full name and address
(2) Your private phone and fax
(3) Your bank account. You may be required to open a fresh bank account
for the purpose of this transaction, if you do not intend to use your
already existing one.
I assure you that, as soon as you indicate your interest to
willingly assist us as the beneficiary, then I will go
ahead to detail you on the role you are required to play.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see
this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed
under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from
any breach of the law. We also intend investing a huge
percentage of our share after sharing, into vaible business
opportunities in your country through your assistance.
If you are interested in this transaction, please, strictly contact
me on my alternative email address( email@example.com),so
that I could give you more details on the workings of this
Mr. Tola Chuwang.
