Good Day My Good Friend,
How are you doing together with your entire family, I hope all is well? Please carefully read and understand my reason of contacting you through this email.
 I am Mr. Alassan  Kabore The Chief International Relactionship Manager Foreign Remittance Unit African Development Bank (ADB). Ouagadougou Burkina  Faso West Africa. 
I want to contact you for a very beneficial business transaction. There is an abandoned sum of Eighteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars. ($18.5 Million) that was deposited by a late customer of this bank called Mr. Rafik Bahaa Edine Hariri. A very prominent man who was doing business transaction with our bank. He was a citizen of Lebanon and was assassinated on February 14, 2005 when explosives equivalent to around 300 kg of C4 were detonated as his motorcade drove past the Saint George Hotel in the Lebanese capital, Beirut. Its was after my research that i realized about his death.
The bank has no knowledge about his death up to date. Upon this discovery that i decided to make this business proposal to you since the banking laws and guidelines here stipulate that if such funds remain unclaimed here after nine years, the money will be transferred into the Central Bank Treasury as unclaimed fund.
My stand to contact you now is that, a foreigner has the legal right to put claim to such deposit whereby the proof is there. Therefore, I want you to apply as his business partner. This transaction is going to be a success because, a foreigner is compulsorily needed to present himself or herself as the next of kin to this deceased bank customer and hence the beneficiary of the fund because the fund depositor was a foreigner.
I therefore, desperately need your assistance to claim and receive this fund into your account. For the assistance in this transaction, you will be entitled to have 40% of the total fund in respect of the provision of your bank account and the assistance you are to render on the process. 55% would be for me as the originator and initiator of the transaction, and the rest 5% will be used to off-set any minor expenses which may arise during the process of transferring the fund into your account. I and my entire family will leave here immediately to your country when once the trqnsfer is done.
Please endeavour to keep this transaction very secret and highly confidential because i will lose my position if the bank authority here finds out that you and I are collaborating in this "Special transaction".  Please also be rest-assured that this business is 100% risk-free, and all the information and data's you will need to make successful claim of this fund in the bank here are fully ready with me here.
Please urgently confirm your willingness and interest to assist me by producing
and sending back to me the needed information below and also call me when once you replied.
