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
