Hello, Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics. I will introduce myself as Godwin Emefiele, Director of Foreign Operations of a well-known bank here in my country. I wish to seek your assistance for the transfer of US$35M depository made by a foreign investor that has remained dormant for years now. This money cannot be approved to a local bank account holder, but can only be approved to a foreigner. If you will stand as next of kin to the fund, it will be shared 50%/50%, as this is a TWO-man business deal transaction. I shall provide you with more details that will help you understand the transaction. I need your assistance and co-operation to this reality. If interested, I will like you to provide immediately your full Names and Address, Date of Birth, Occupation, Tel & Fax Numbers so that an Attorney will be able to prepare the necessary documents which will put you as the next of kin. If this proposal is acceptable by you, I expect that you will not take undue advantage of the trust I will bestow on you. I anticipate your urgent response. This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is a legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act. On your interest, let me hear from you. Regards, Mr. Godwin Emefiele
