Segun Agbaje Version: “West African advanced fee” or “419” Email Scam
This is another version of the Nigerian email scam, now being sent out by “Segun Agbaje.”
Compliments of the season. It is indeed my pleasure to write to you
this letter, which I believe will be a suprise, as we are both
complete strangers.My name is Mr Segun Agbaje, Deputy managing
director of Zentel International Bank Plc.
I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of my bank with
account number 14-255-2004/ZIB/T who perished in a plane crash Korean
Air Flight 801] with the whole passengers aboard on August 6, 2000.
Since the demise of this our customer,I personally has watched with
keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as
no one has come to claim his funds of USD4.1m,[Four Million
One Hundred Thousand United States Dollars] which has been with my
branchfor a very long time.
On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as
the next of kin as no one has come up to be the next of kin. And the
banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than Five
years, because money will be recalled to the bank treasury as
unclaimed after this period.
In view of this I got your contact through my private search in the
internet for your assistant to act as the next of Kin. I will give
you 30% of the total.
Upon the receipt of your response, I will send you by fax or e-mail
the Application, Bank’s fax number and the next step to take. I will
fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free and
should not entertain any fear as all modalities for fund transfer can
finalized within five banking days, after you apply to the bank as a
relation to the deceased.
When you receive this letter. Kindly send your response to my private
e-mail below mail box :firstname.lastname@example.org, signifying your
your private Tel/Fax numbers for quick communication.
