Dear Sir/Madam,

I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise but due to the urgency of
this transaction.First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, this
is by virtue of it's nature as being utterly confidential and top secret.

Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one
apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end
of the day. There is no doubt that trust conceptually is a conundrum which leads
itself to deferring interpretation, we have decided to contact you due to the
urgency of this transaction.

I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of
BANK OF AFRICA(BOA). I came to know you in my private search for a reliable and
reputable person to handle this Confidential Transaction, which involves the
transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account requiring maximum

I am writing to you, following the impressive information received about you
from the chambers of commerce. I believed that you are capable and reliable to
champion this business opportunity. In my department we discovered an abandoned
sum of €10.5m EURO (Ten million five hundred thusand euros). In an account
that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire
family On 21 July, 2003 in a plane crash in Nairobi Kenya, killing all people
on board and you can view the site for more

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of
kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless
somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated
in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next
of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody
behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I and my colleagues in my department
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 we don't want this money to
go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained
unclaimed after six 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 forigner and a Cape verdian
cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 35% of this money
will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign
account, 5 % will be set aside for expenses incurred after the business and 60 %
would be for me and my colleagues. There after I and my colleagues 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 relations or next of kin of the deceased
indicating your bank name, your bank account number,your private telephone and
fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money
will be remitted.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the
application. 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.Please reply me through this my private email

Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yours faithfully,
Bill and exchange manager,
