Dear Friend,

With due respect, I havedecided to contact you on a business transaction that will be beneficial toboth of us. At the bank last account and auditing evaluation, my staffs cameacross an old account which was being maintained by a foreign client who we learnwas among the deceased passengers of motor accident on November.2003, thedeceased was unable to run this account since his death. The account hasremained dormant without the knowledge of his family since it was put in a safedeposit account in the bank for future investment by the client.

Since his demise, even the members of his family haven't applied for claimsover this fund and it has been in the safe deposit account until I discoveredthat it cannot be claimed since our client is a foreign national and we aresure that he has no next of kin here to file claims over the money. As thedirector of the department, this discovery was brought to my office so as todecide what is to be done. I decided to seek ways through which to transferthis money out of the bank and out of the country too.

The total amount in the account is 18.6 million with my positions as staffs ofthe bank, I am handicapped because I cannot operate foreign accounts and cannotlay bonafide claim over this money. The client was a foreign national and youwill only be asked to act as his next of kin and I will supply you with all thenecessary information and bank data to assist you in being able to transferthis money to any bank of your choice where this money could be transferredinto.

The total sum will be shared as follows: 50% for me, 50% for you and expensesincidental occur during the transfer will be incur by both of us. The transferis risk free on both sides hence you are going to follow my instruction tillthe fund transfer to your account. Since I work in this bank that is why youshould be confident in the success of this transaction because you will beupdated with information as at when desired.

I will wish you to keep this transaction secret and confidential as I am hopingto retire with my share of this money at the end of transaction which will bewhen this money is safety in your account. I will then come over to yourcountry for sharing according to the previously agreed percentages. You mighteven have to advise me on possibilities of investment in your country orelsewhere of our choice. May God help you to help me to a restive retirement,Amen,

And You have to contact me through my private e-mail at ([email protected])
