... I am the manager of bill and exchange of the Foreign Operations Department of Wema Bank of Nigeria... Mr. Irawan B. Suyana, who died in in a ghastly plane crash of November 7th, 1996 on ADC airline No B874 to Port Harcourt...

One thing we have to understand in this project... spending money for its sake should not be seen as an expensive thing... gain it back at the end of the project. You should not consider calling me an expensive thing because it is necessary that we keep in touch with each other both through mail and phone discussion...

blue bullet point Death certificate of Mr Suyana issued by the Nigerian death registry board since he died here.
blue bullet point Copy of Mr.Suyana's will or confirmation letter from the Nigerian Justice Minister will dept. confirming you as beneficiary
blue bullet point Affidavit of next of kin [by Nigerian Court]
blue bullet point Affidavit of claim [by Nigerian Court]
blue bullet point Sworn Affidavit and Court clarification of change of ownership by Federal High Court
blue bullet point Affidavit of inheritance by Federal High Court.

... I am in contact with the officials of the Nigerian death registry board to get the death certificate. Now being that we do not have the will of Mr. Suyana, we resolved to get a letter from the justice ministry that will confirm you the beneficiary of Mr. Suyana’s will. I am also working on this too. Though it is very difficult and expensive I hope to get these two documents before the end of tomorrow and I will fax them to you.

As per the other four affidavits, we need a lawyer to get them from the court as neither myself nor any of my colleagues can swear an affidavit on your behalf. I need to get the other two documents first before this as they form the base of this claim... We are currently spending a lot of money to get those two documents...

... since you cannot come to my country I advise you to write to my bank’s GM, Mr. Simon Ibeh, tell him you have received his fax and that you are making arrangement for the required document and that you wish to be represented by an attorney based in Lagos... the same lawyer that will swear the affidavits...

... This is the plan we have to follow. Again I advise that you do not call my bank on phone and always insist that all correspondence be by fax for record purpose...

Some of my bank staff knows Mr. Suyana personally and could ask you simple question on the phone about his physical appearance and of course if you fail to answer correctly, that will jeopardize our project....

... Don’t worry, we know why we made our plans the way they are. It is basically for our own good... I cannot wait to hug you and shake your hands in success.

... lawyer's service charge for this assignment is US$ 6,000, 50% should be before he starts the assignment while the balance should be paid within seven days after completion... needs a promissory note which guarantees the payment of the balance...

...the charge to get the affidavits from the court :

1.Affidavit of next of kin = US$830,56
2.Affidavit of claim = US$618,11
3.Affidavit / Court clarifications of change of ownership = US$996,48
4.Affidavit of inheritance = US$867,44
---------- Total cost of four Affidavits = US$3,312,59

... total US$6,312,59 through Western Union Money Transfer in his name; Ambrose Cole...

... the charges to get these needful affidavits as explained by the attorney are okay. The attorney’s proposed service charge are okay, as well as his mode of payment...

... I think Mr. Cole was quite considerate in his charges... You pay him this total by Western Union. Let me know brother. We need your help now.

... Now we have a problem of getting the total money to pay the attorney’s requirements. We do not have enough money... all we have been able to put together is a total of about $3500, leaving a balance of $2,812.59.

We are still doing our best here to raise more money but we need your help as we alone cannot get the whole money the attorney need. We have already spent a lot of money in getting those two documents. Please brother, I know you don’t have money but please like I told you on phone yesterday, try and see if you can raise at least $2,000 so we can make up the balance and settle the attorney requirement for the conclusion of our project.


David, I just received an email like your proposal to me from William Bill Eke the manager of Orient Bank telling me to claim the fund of Mr. Berry Lake who died... I went to the website of Wema Bank [www.wemabank.com] and I did not see your GM, Mr. Simeon I. Ibeh.
