Mr Ken Power
A standard 419 scam here.
It's a fraud, a fake. There is no special bank account, there is no pot of money.
You will be asked to pay certain expenses up front. For bribes, for travel, for taxes, in one case I know about it was even to bribe a telex operator.
The criminals just keep whatever money you send and nothing is ever sent to you.
Just ignore the whole thing.
Remember also, what they are actually asking you to do: steal the money from that bank account. So if you do lose money, of course, you can never actually go to the police to complain about it.
I am Mr John Amala Peters,bank manager of Union Bank of
Nigeria,Apapa branch.I have the privilege to request your
co-operation in transfering the sum of US$28,000,000.00
(Twenty-Eight Million Dollars) to your account.
This stated sum belonged to my customer,a South African
born Nigerian based oil merchant (Mr Ken Power) who in
June 1999,made a one year fixed deposit of this FUND in my
bank but died shortly after in an automobile accident
without making a WILL or declaring a Next of Kin in the
bank deposit papers.
This sum of US$28,000,000.00 is still lodged in his
account in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over
with the principal sum at the end of each year.NO PERSON
WILL EVER COME FORWARD TO CLAIM THIS FUND.According to the
Nigerian Law,at the expiration of seven (7) years the
money will revert to the ownership of the NIGERIAN FEDERAL
GOVERNMENT IF NOBODY APPLIES TO CLAIM IT.
Consequently,my proposal is that I WANT YOU TO STAND IN AS
THE NEXT OF KIN of late Ken Power and hence the
BENEFICIARY OF HIS FUND.This is imperative so that the
fruits of this old man’s labour will not get into the
hands of some corrupt Nigerian government officials.What
we are going to do is simple.You have to provide the
1: YOUR FULL NAMES AND CURRENT ADDRESS
2: YOUR PRIVATE PHONE AND FAX NUMBERS
We shall use these information to prepare the necessary
inheritance DOCUMENTS AND CERTIFICATES through an
accredited attorney that will represent you the Next of
Kin to late Ken Power.For your assistance,you will be
adequately compensated with 30% of the total sum.65% will
be my own share while 5% will be set aside to cover any
incidental expenses made both locally and internationally
before the conclusion of this deal.This transaction is
100% risk free as the paperwork will be done by the
attorney,and my position as the Branch Manager will
guarantee its successful execution.
If you are interested in participating in this
transaction,please reply immediately to :
email@example.com .Upon your response,I shall then
provide you with more details and relevant documents that
will help you understand this transaction better.Please
realise that this proposal demands utmost promptness and
Mr.John A Peters
