I am Mr. Mattias Johansson, Branch Manager of Mama's Old Fashioned Donuts of Nigeria, Lagos Branch. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.
On June 6, 2008, an American Donut consultant/contractor with the Nigerian National Donut Corporation, Mr. Barry Kelly ordered 75,000,000 (Seventy Five Million) donuts from our bakery. On completion, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Nigerian National Donut Corporation that Mr. Barry Kelly died from choking on a donut. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a Will, and all attempts by the American Embassy to trace his next of kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Barry Kelly did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his donut order paperwork in my Bakery. This sum of total 75,000,000 donuts are still sitting in my Bakery, getting stale, as dormant account. No one will ever come forward to claim them, and according to Nigerian Law after 5 years, the donuts will revert to the ownership of the Nigeria Government if the baked goods owner is certified dead and nobody comes forward to claim them.
This is the situation, and my proposal is that I am looking for an American who will stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Barry Kelly. A bakery account abroad will then facilitate the transfer of these donuts to the beneficiary/next of kin. This is simple all you have to do is to immediately send me the details of a bakery location anywhere in the world for me to arrange the proper donut transfer paperwork. The donuts will then be shipped this bakery for us to share in the ratio 70% for me; 30% for you.
There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by me using my position and connection in the Bakery in Nigeria. We shall employ the services of an attorney to draft the Will and obtain all necessary documents and letters of administration in your favour for the transfer. This transaction is guaranteed. If you are interested, please reply immediately via the private email address below. Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to help eat my share.
Awaiting your urgent reply via my email: email@example.com
Thank you and regards.
Mr. Mattias Johansson.
