My name is Mr.Shailu Chavan the principal treasury officer with one of the prime banks in Cote dIvoire.
I have decided to contact you through this medium based on a business proposal, which will be of mutual
benefit to both of us. I discovered your email through comprehensive web email search on directory so
I decided to contact you. I know this might sound like scam to you because of a lot of activities going on in
the internet today. But I assure you that this is real.

I am the personal accounts manager to one of our late client, a national of your country, who used to work
with an oil servicing company here in Cote dIvoire, the late client made a numbered time (fixed) deposited
for twelve calendar months, valued at $USD7,700,000.00 (Seven Million Seven Hundred Thousand United
States Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, we 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,
PETRO-CI Corporation that my client died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out
that he did not leave a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further
investigation and discovered that the deceased person did not declare any next of kin in all his official
documents, including his bank deposit paperwork.

This sum of ($USD 7.700,000.00) is still sitting in the bank and the interest is rolled over with the principal
sum at the end of each year. No one will come forward to claim it. According to the law of Cote dIvoire, at
the expiration of 5{five} years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Cote dIvoire government if
nobody claims the funds.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to deceased
person for the fact that you have same last name with him so that this money will not be reverted by the
government. If this request matches with your inward intention for success and greatness, then you are
urged to make a quick response indicating your interest and readiness to participate and work with me to
make this successful.

Please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for
both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country. In your return mail,
please do forward your information as listed below if you are willing to complete this deal with me, to enable
me put the total fund in your name for claim as the next of kin to the deceased person:

Your full name:
Your contact address:
Your phone number:
Your age:

I wait for your urgent reply.

Mr.Shailu Chavan
