-- Hello, I am Mr. Sopulu Chukwu, the operations manager of Safety Trust Security and Finance Company, Cotonou, Benin Republic. This is to inform you that your funds were transferred from a sister company to this company in anticipation to siphoning the funds into personal account. Having cross checked and discovered that the right beneficiary of this fund was maneuvered due to lack of payment to receive the fund at the initial stage or death situation. I came across your file; I therefore decide to know if the bearer is existing; I would want to engage with you in this personal transaction, if really you are the beneficiary because without which this arrangement cannot be possible, I want proof to enable work efficiently towards achieving this goal. We will have 50/50% dividend and I will thereafter make it possible to release the funds to you through any means you may deem necessary, wire transfer/diplomatic courier service. A lot of things has happen in this aspect because the purpose of those that sent this fund into our company was for swindle purposes as they wanted the funds to remain there up to a certain time when nobody cares or come to ask for it, because this is automatically a different company, our condition of oath of office does not warrant any body who has invested to lose his/her fund. I will get this done without you the beneficiary to spend a dime. All I need from you is to apply for the funds to be released to you through our company and every other aspect will be done by me, but with assurance that my 50% is not negotiable, I will explain further on this issue as soon as I receive your response, but be rest assured you donít have any money to spends to receive your fund, but this transaction is between you and I the moment you accept my conditions of 50%. Yours sincerely, Mr. Sopulu Chukwu Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
