Greetings my trusting friend,
I honestly do apologize and hope I do not cause you much embarrassment by contacting you through this media for a transaction of this magnitude. Actually this message could be strange but it's real if you pay some attention to it, though, this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, but I still choose to reach you through it because it still remains the fastest and surest medium of communicating with you.  Due to the confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium, it became necessary for me to seek your assistance and it is imperative for me to know your opinion.
In a brief introduction, I am Dr. Nicolas M. Denis, the Director of Operation with Financial Bank of Benin Republic. I have a very interesting deal to discuss with you; the deal under discussion has to do with Mr George C.Hudson a national of your country, who was employed as a Consultant / contractor with Societe Nationale Des Products D' Agricole (SONAPRA) a cotton manufacturing company in Cotonou-Benin.
On 25th December 2003, Mr. George C.Hudson with his wife and their only daughter was involved in a plane crash victims with Boa 727-type air plane belonging to African Transport Union (UTA). In this fatal tragedy with Beirut-bound flight, 110 persons died and Over 40 others still reported missing, while 22 passengers survived, you may confirm the event of the air crash through, or( ).
Consequently, Mr George C. Hudson made a numbered time (fixed) deposited for twelve calendar and his account with our Bank accrues to about (Three Million, Two hundred and Fifty- Two Thousand US Dollars) USDM3.252,000.00. Hence my decision to contact you so that you and I will go into partnership hence late Mr George C.Hudson has no other relative to claim his left fund in our bank. However, the nature of your business is completely irrelevant to this transaction as all I need from you is an assurance that my interest will be fully protected once this deal is concluded.
All I want you to do is to ACT as the next of kin of Late Mr George C.Hudson because you are a foreigner like him which makes this claim straight forward, this fund will be reverted to the government ownership as abandoned treasury if no body applies as his next of kin. Therefore, you as a foreigner is fully qualified to stand as the next of kin to late Mr George C.Hudson so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials as the expiration period is at hand.
Please note that There is no risk at all, my position as the Director of Operation guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. It is expected that upon the receipt of your acceptance, this transaction will be concluded within 7 Banking days and the money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 40% for you and 60% for me. Please if you are interested kindly reply me with my alternative email: (  ) and also you send to me your private phone, or mobile numbers and fax numbers for easier correspondence. or you can give me a call on +229-93 234 161.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
My regards,
Dr Nicolas M. Denis.
