- Good Morning My Dear Friend,This mail and the classified information contained therein that I am about to reveal to you can either destroy me, ruin my professional career or make me loose my job, depending on how you receive and take it, the future and happiness of my family depends on it. Please I need you to read this mail attentively to know the reason and purpose why you received this mail from me, I didn't come to you by chance nor by accident, I have come to you because your names has planted you in the centre of relevance in my life and professional career as a banker at this very moment. Before I go further I will like to introduce myself to you. I am Mr.Paul Williams, a managing director and head of Audit division of Bank Of Africa Cote d'Ivoire. I am contacting you concerning a deceased customer of our bank who died On May 10, 2003, Our customer, his wife And their three children were involved in a car accident. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to his embassy to locate any of our customer's extended relatives but this proved abortive. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come across by as a result of this mail. I am contacting you independently, without the consent of the BOA -CI ENTIRE MANAGMENT, and no one is aware of this communication which I have taken my time to study before contacting you. I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you. The proposal:During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person who died On May 10, 2003, in car accident. the fund has been dormant in his account with this bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this development.the said amount was $12.6Million (Twelve million, Six Hundred Thousand U.S Dollars) as it may interest you to know, Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this money to a foreign account has been put in place and directives and needed information 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 fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant( A banker )we are not allowed to opperate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because i work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin with affidavit of trust of oath to the bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred into on his request as it may be after due verification and clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank where the whole money will be remitted from to your own designation bank account. I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. You will receive 35% of the money upon your receipt of this money and 60% will be for myself, then 5% will be for the expenses that may be incured to accomplish this transaction.This transaction is strictly confidential.Your last name is the same as the original depositor, this would make it easy to claim and pass you as the beneficiary with right to claim. If you do not want a direct wire transfer of the fund into your account, The alternative would be for us to have the bank direct the funds to another financial institution/security company with you as account holder. This way there will be no need for you to think of receiving the money directly from the bank. The security firm accept deposits from only organizations thus; what you hand over to them is what you get back. They do not have the means to process the money. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the centre of relevance in my life. Lets share the blessing. If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through this email. If you give me positive signals, I will give you the relevant details and initiate this process towards a conclusion. I do not want any direct link between you and I. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our total Quality Management Policy. Please observe this instruction religiously. Do not betray my confidence. I await your response.Your Sincerely, Mr. Paul Williams.
