Greetings, Please assist me to save my only child Whoever that save life have done the best and greatest thing on Earth. I write to seek your services in a sensitive and classified matter regarding an unaccounted fund in our bank here in Benin during the last 2014 business year. As operation regional manager, I deposited this fund in an ESCROW CALL ACCOUNT at our headquarters pending when I shall get a reliable person. I am happy because this transaction is 100% riskless. This transaction requires a classified arrangement so would you perhaps be able to receive this fund under legal claims then I will file you in. I will appreciate for fewer questions asked and your participation reward will be 40% of the total money. There are practically no risks involved, the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will keep you and me from any breach of the law, it will be simply a bank to bank transfer. I have all the details and will file you in if you are really willing to assist me with this project. Your major role would be to provide an existing bank account or open a new bank account where the fund will be transferred and stand as the original depositor of this fund in our bank, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end for this important business, trusting in you and believing that you will never let me down either now or in future. At this juncture, I wish to tell you what prompted me to package this deal. I have my a 9 year old daughter who has leukemia disease, a disease of the blood, and she needs a bone marrow transplant or she will die. I will like the transplant to be done in any good children's hospital in your country, if there is one. Once this fund is transferred into your bank account, I shall resign from my position and bring my child to start a new life in your country. The funds in question are quite large, Three million five hundred thousand United States of America Dollars ($3,500,000.00) I will expect a straight answer from you. If yes, please get back to me so that we can work out the modalities without further delay. Reply to me with your full name, telephone number and address. Thanks for assisting to save my sick child and God Bless you. With best regards, Mr. Egesi Anthony
