Dear  Friend,

I know that this message will come to you as a surprise. I am the Auditing and Accounting manager 
with the United Bank For Africa(UBA),Ouagadougou Burkina faso,West Africa. I Hope that you will not 
expose or betray this trust and confident that I am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit 
of our both families.

I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of U.S $17.5M (Seventeen million five hundred 
thousand United States dollars) only to your account within (7)seven working days. This money has 
been dormant for years in our Bank without claim.I want the bank to release the money to you as the 
nearest person to our deceased customer who died along with his supposed next of kin in an air 
crash since July 31st 2003.I don't want the money to go into government treasury as an abandoned 
fund. So this is the reason why I am contacting you so that the bank can release the money to you 
as the next of kin to the deceased customer.

Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it if you are not 
interested.Upon receipt of your reply, I will give you full details on how the business will be 
executed and also note that you will have 40% of the above mentioned sum if you agree to handle 
this business with me. I am expecting your urgent response as soon as you receive my message.

I look forward to receive your email and reply to my email as the 
urgency implies.

Best Regards,
Alex Williams
