I am Mr. Julius Mike of the Diamond bank limited. I am the personel
Account Manager of Mr.Barry Kelly ,a nationale of your country, who used
to work with Shell Petrolum Development Company here
On the 22nd Sept, 1997,our customer,and his wife and their three children
were involved in a car accident along sagamu express road. All occupants of
the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then
I have made severalenquiries to your embassy to locate any of his extended
relatives but this has also proved unsuccessful.
I am contacting you now to assist in repartrating the money and property
left behind by our customer before they get confiscated or declared
unserviceable by our bank where he deposited twenty five million
united states dollars sum off US$25 million dollars in our
bank the Diamond bank limited.
The banking guidelines of our bank stipulates that if such money remained
unclaimed for over a period of years and few months, with the account
unservicable the money will be confisicated and this will
happen after the next Year if nobody comes for the money. Since.we have not
seen any body for the money and his property for the last 9 years and our
bank has been notifying the Rotary club for the past
3 year,may I now seek your consent to present yourself as the next of kin of
the deceased ,so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$25 million
dollars can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money.
I guarantee that this will be executed underlegitimate arrangement that will
protect you from any breach of the law. Please, kindly get in touch with me
