 Dear Friend
I am Dr Haris Hakim, the director in charge of auditing and accounting section of Bank of Africa,Ouagadougou Burkina faso West Africa with due respect and regard.I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of  us at the end of the transaction.
During our investigation  and auditing in this bank ,my department came across a very huge sum of money  belonging  to a deceased person  who died in a plane crash july 2000 and the fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank with out any claim of the fund  in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this developement.
The said amount was EIGHTHEEN MILLION united states  dollars.($18000.000.00) Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put the claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased;get the required approval and transfer this money to a foriegn account  has  been put in place and directives and needed information will be relayed to you  as soon  as  you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us and  also benefit your self to this great business opportunity.
Infact i could have done this deal alone  but because  of my position in this country as a civil servant(A Banker),we are not  allowed  to operate  a foriegn account and would eventually  raise  an eye  brow  on my side  during  the time of transfer becuase i work  in this bank. This is the reason why it will require  a second party or fellow  who  will forward claims  as the next of kin to the bank  and  also present  a foriegn account where he will need the money  to be  retransferred into  on his request  as it may be after due verification and clarification by the correspondent branch  of the bank where the  money will be remitted from to your own designation bank account.
I will not fail to inform you that this transaction  is 100% risk free.On smooth conclusion of this transaction,you will be entitled  to 40%of the total  sum as gratification,while5% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone  bills; while55%will be for me. Please you have been adviced to keep  top secret as i am still in service and intend to retire  from service after we conclude  this deal with you.
You have to send me those your information below to enable me use it and get you next of kin application form from bank, so that you will contact Bank for the transfer of this money into your account..
1)Your age
2)Your full name and address.
3)Your marital status
4)Your occupation/Profession
5)Your direct telephone/Fax numbers
6)Your passport details for legal operations.
