The Desk Of : Mr Abba Johnson EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK (A.D.B) LIBERAVIL, GABON FRENCH, AFRICA email@example.com Dear Friend, (PRIVATE/CONFIDENTIAL). I am MR. ABBA JOHNSON, the Director in charge of Auditing department of the African Development bank (A.D.B) Gabon, French Africa. Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise. AS IT MAY INTEREST YOU TO KNOW, I GOT YOUR IMPRESSIVE INFORMATION THROUGH THE NORTH AMERICA INFORMATION SEARCH HERE IN GABON. I have decided to contact you on a project that will be very beneficial to both of us. During our auditing in this Bank, I came across some amount of money belonging to a deceased foreign client named Mr Larry. E. Robert who died with his wife and their only daughter on February 16, 1998 in a plane crash. The fund has been dormant in his account with our bank without any claim. The custody of this fund are solely on my eye watch. With this discovery development of this coded secure fund, many attempts to locate or trace any of his relation or close next of kin prove abortive. He was the president of Taiwan Oil Reserve Corp here in Gabon. The said amount is U.S $14,000,000(FOURTEEN MILLION UNITED STATE OF AMERICA DOLLAR). Please View this website: http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9802/16/taiwan.crash.update2/ FOR YOUR INFORMATION FOR YOU NOT BEEN A TAIWANESE WILL NOT POSE ANY PROBLEM FOR THE SUCESSFUL TRANSFER ON THIS FUND INTO YOUR ACCOUNT. All the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the Bona fide next of kin to the deceased has been put in place and directives will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist me and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity. In this country as a civil servant (A Banker) i am not allowed to operate a foreign account and it is impossible for me to use this money locally here. This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin to my office [the Bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred into on his request. Our Banking law stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after Ten years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and i cannot stand as next of kin and I don't want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill. Be assured this transaction is 100% risk free. On conclusion of this Project, you will be entitled to 35% of the total sum as your share, while 5% set aside for any contingency and 60% will be for me. Please you have been advice to keep this "top secret" as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after I conclude this deal with you. I will fly down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages indicated above and further investment opportunity will be discussed. I will highly need your advice on which profitable investment I can invest into with part of my share. On your acceptance to be m Yours faithfully, MR ABBA JOHNSON firstname.lastname@example.org
