I know that this mail will come to you as surprise,please accept the content in good faith . 
I do not intend to cause any grief to you and your family and I am writing following the impressive information about your profile through the website your capability and reliability to champion this opportunity as next of to Late Engineer S A.JAO,an American who unfortunately lost his life with his wife and their only daughter in the Tsunami that happened on 26th December 2004.
My name is Mr. Umar Bello.I work with UNION TOGOLAIS DE BANQUE  REPUBLIC OF TOGO as(Accounts Auditor), in the discharge of my duty, I find out  this domiciliary account that the owner died with his wife and their only daughter in the Tsunami that happened in Banda Aceh Province Island, Indonesia on 26th December 2004,please visit the web site for more information.
I contacted my director and we sent out staff for enquiries and discovered that the account holder is dead leaving no will behind.With the Nine million five hundred thousand dollars($9.5Million US Dollars) in it dormant account with our bank here Republic of Togo,the first payment that the bank will pay into your bank account will be $4 Miliion US dollars and upon a suscessful transfer of the first fund without any disapportment from your side,we will hornestly proceed with rest $5.5 Million US dollars as i planed the transfer to be with you. 
I am writing to you so that we can work together to remit the money to you as the next of kin because this money belongs to LATE ENGINEER S.JAO a foreigner and the fund has to be claimed only by a foreigner,till his daeth  was executive marketing manager of with Shell BP TOGO; an Oil Servicing Company here. 
Now our questions are:-
1. Can we give you this trust?
2. What will be your commission if you can assist this project? 
Consider this and get back at us as soon as possible. 
Finally, it is My humble prayer that the information as contained herein be accorded the necessary attention, urgency as well as the secrecy it deserves. 
The request for a foreigner as next-of-kin in this business is occasioned by the act that the customer was a foreigner and a Togolaise can not stand as next-of-kin to late Engineer.Jao who is a late late foreigner here. 
We Expect your urgent response if you can handle this project.
Call me at this direct line 00228 060 32 27 after sending a mail for confirmation with your telephone and fax numbers to me for easy communication between us.
