Dear Friend, I write to you as a matter of uttermost urgency in respect of a business transaction which I trust will be of interest to you. It pertains certain accounts which in the wake of the September 11 attacks were "MARKED" by the Counter- terrorism unit of the FBI, these accounts are belonging to key Arab businessmen and influential players in the mid-east, these accounts have been a subject of investigation and has since been cleared by the FBI and I have been entrusted with the duty of returning the accounts to the rightful owners but unfortunately a lot of these people are nowhere to be found. Should you be interested, my proposal is for you to be the sole beneficiary of these funds which is running into $126,000,000.00 USD. This partnership is to be on 50%-50% basis. But you have to be confidential! If this proposition offends your moral values, do accept my apology, and ignore this mail. However, if you are interested provide me your name, age,address and relevant bio-data on this email address: email@example.com Yours faithfully, Mr. Jon Burns. firstname.lastname@example.org
