Dear friend,
This message might meet you in utmost surprise, however it's just my urgent need for a foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction.Sorry to distract your attention,I am Mr Sherrif Alhassan  the bill and exchange manager in the bank of african ouagadougou burkina faso. I contacts you in this transaction since i cannot be able to see you face to face at first that is why i decided to write. 

I will like you to take your time to read this mail carefully.I did not mean to embarrass you with my business proposal but i seriously need your assistance.Please this is a confidential matter and it requires urgency. 
In my department i discovered an abandoned sum of $10.5m dollars in account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family on monday,31 july,2000, in a plane crash , since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his or her next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws, but unfortunately we learnt that his supposed next of kin died along side with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. 
It is therefore upon this discovery, i now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and guidine here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after eight years and six months, the money will be transferred into the bank as unclaimed bill i therefore agree that 40% of this money will be for you as foreigner partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% would be for me. There after i will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. 
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin to the deceased indicating.
please forward me the bellow information's;
Your name: ............................
Your country: .........................
Your phone Number: ......................
Your Tel/fax: ...........................

All this is for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you immediately.
