International Commercial Bank.(ICB),
I am MR Charles Apiah, The Chief Auditor/Information Manager, In-Charge of Foreign Unit of our bank and I have had the intent to contact you over this financial transaction/transfer worth the sum of Thirty Two Million Two Hundred Thousand U.S Dollars. (US$32.2M) for our progress and richness. This is an abandoned sum that belongs to our late foreign customer who was a victim of (Beirut Bound Charter) Jet Plane crash happened on the 26th December 2003 in Cotonou (Republic of Benin), and he died along with his wife.
this C.N.N News internet website below,(http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/12/26/benin.crash/index.html)
I was opportune to see the deceased deposit file bearing this huge amount of money when I was inspecting the dated and current customer's files in other to sign and submit to the entire bank management for an official validation / re-documentation against the statement approval to the account holders for the year. In a swift investigation carried out by me, I found out that none of the deceased relative is aware of the abandoned fund except his late wife.
As a result of that It is an extremely confidential matter between me and you. Hence you are a foreigner to our country, you are authorized by our Banking law to apply and claim the fund into your account as the NEXT-OF-KIN to the deceased. For assisting me to get this fund transferred into your bank account, the ratio of 30% of the total sum is for your share whereas 60% is for me as business pioneer, and the remaining 10% will mapped out for the expenses we made during the transaction.
Please I need your urgent response on assurance of trust that you will not deny my right of the share once the fund gets into your account because I am a poor civil servant who depend on little monthly salary. What I mean is that you are the one who will help me to get visa to your country immediately I resign from my work on the instant of the transfer into your account.
If you are really sure of your integrity, trustworthy, and confidentiality, reply urgently and to prove that, include your particulars as follows.
1. Your Full Name:
