Dear friend,
My name is Mr. John Gelsthorp. I am the accountant of the FinBank Plc Victoria Island Lagos. I am  
married with two kids.
I am writing to solicit your assistance in the noble transfer of Three Million, Eight Hundred 
Thousand US Dollars. This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the accountant made as 
profit last year. I have already submitted an approved end  year report for  2009 and also 
submitted report of first quarter of this year2010 to my Head Office here in Lagos and they will 
never know of this Excess. I have placed this fund on a SUSPENCE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to 
request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part with 30% 
of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no 
risk involved in this. It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer to your nominated bank account 
anywhere you feel safe. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund.
If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response. 
Best regards,
Mr. John Gelsthorp
