 Dear Friend,

With warm heart I offer my friendship and greetings, may the blessings and peace of God be upon you and upon your family. And I hope this mail meets you in good health. However strange or surprising this contact might seem to you as we have not met personally or had any dealings in the past, I humbly ask that you take due consideration of its importance and the immense benefit it will be to you and I in the nearest future.
After careful deliberation and consideration with my colleagues we resolved to contact you for your most needed assistance in this manner. On the other hand, I duly apologize for infringing on your privacy if this offer/contact is notacceptable to you, as I personally make this proposal to you as a person of integrity.
In a nut shell, the purpose of my writing to you exclusively is that I want to pull out an unclaimed fund amounted to the total sum of Seven million, five hundred thousand Euros that belong to one of our late Customer, who died in an accident some years back.
Ever since we gathered the information about his death, we have been expecting any of his relatives, collaborators or next of kin to visit our bank and put claim to the fund, but up till this time of writing, no next of kin or relation of him has come forward to claim his money with us. Therefore, I need your maximum co-operation and reliable assistance by just doing the following for me:
1. Given an immediate reply to this proposal upon receipt of it and agree with my terms.
2. Provide your direct private telephone and fax number for effective communication.
3. You willact as the next of kin, relation or business collaborator to the deceased customer.
For your co-operation and efforts 35% of the money will be for you as our foreign partner, 63% will be for my colleagues and myself that will eventually visit your country for disbursement of our fund portion, while 2% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and also telephone communication bills.
Furthermore, I need your assistance and co-operation to get this deal done. Because as a foreigner, you stand a better position to be presented through documentation as the next of kin/Partner since the deceased is also a foreigner, this is the reason why I could not do this deal alone as a Burkinabč. As a matter of fact, it is pertinent to inform you that all modalities have been accomplished and all logistics in good shape to effect payment immediately.
Looking forward to a mutual beneficial business relationship. I will prefer allfurther communication and future correspondences in English language. While I strongly advise you to treat this communication with top maturity and confidentiality for future prospect. Preferably and advisably, show up your willingness and readiness to assist me in this bussiness by replying this email immediately.
Upon receipt of your quick and positive response, I will equally send you all the vital information concerning the deceased person himself, my own contact information/CV, detail information of the paying bank here in Burkina Faso and all other coverage that you might  needed to achieve 100% success at the end of the whole deal.
Yours faithfully,
