I am sorry for the embarrassment this mail
might cause you, as we have not met before. I am Mr.Juel Syno, a Bank
Accountant. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of
$27.597Million United States dollars. This fund is the excess of what my
branch made as profit during the 2005 financial year. I have already
submitted annual report for that year to my head office as I have watched
with keen interest as the bank will never know of this excess fund, I
placed this amount of $27.597Million United States dollars to an Escrow
Coded account without a beneficiary (anonymous) to avoid trace.I do need to
stress that there are practically no risk involved in this
transaction.It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer or if you can come
over here is best way.
As an officer of the bank, I cannot be
directly connected to this money due to civil service code which form its
civil servants from owing or operating foreign currency account coupled
with the fact that the fund is huge thus I am impelled to request for your
assistance to receive this money into your bank account on my behalf I
intend to part 50% of this fund to you while 50% shall be for me. All I
need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund so that
the fund can be legally processed to your name and be transferred to your
account without any problem. If you accept this offer, I will appreciate
your timely response to enable us proceed.
