I am contacting you on a business transaction of a huge sum of money
from a deceased account,though i know a transaction of this magnitude
will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I'm  assuring you that
all will be well at the end of the day and this is why am  contacting
you due to the urgency of this transaction.

We discovered an abandoned sum of (Seven million five hundred
thousand United States dollars) in an account that belongs to one of
our foreign customer who died along side with his entire family, and ever
since his death none of his next of kin or relations has come forward
to lay claims for this money as his heir.

We cannot release the funds from his account unless someone applies for
claim as the next of kin to the deceased as indicated on our banking
guidelines. And upon this discovery we now seek your permission to have
you stand as a next of kin to the deceased in which all documentations
will be carefully worked out by us for the (Seven million five hundred
thousand United States dollars) to be released in your favor as the
beneficiary's/next of kin to the deceased. And It may interest you to
know that we have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate
any of the deceased beneficiary.

Kindly acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of
our mutual business endeavor by furnishing me with the

1. Beneficiary name and address.
2. Direct telephone and fax numbers.
3. Date of birth and occupation.

These requirements will enable us file letter of claim to the appropriate
departments and authorities for necessary approvals for the release of the
funds in your favor, before the transfer can be made to you. And we will be
compensating you with thirty percent of the total funds on final conclusion
of this project, while the rest will be for us and for investment purposes.
And If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the
trust we have bestowed in you.

NB: If you are willing to assist me, including the information's i have
requested from you, call me on my confidential tel: 011-871764107753 for
further details on what to do next.

I await your response and call.
