My Dear

I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have never met

 My name is Mr Hanry James. I am the bill and exchange manager in African
Development Bank.  I hope that you will not expose or betray this trust
and confidence that I am about to repose in you for the mutual benefit of
our families. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of our Bank
(Mr Seajoon  who perished along with his  entire family were among the
victims of December 25, 2003 plan crash.
you can visit the CNN web news for the tragedy.

Since the demise of this our customer, I personally have watched with keen
interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has
come to claim his funds of Five Million US Dollars ($5,000,000.00) which
has been with our branch for a very long time. On this note, I decided to
seek for whom his name shall be used as the Next of Kin since you have the
same last name with late( Mr.Seajoon ) and from the same country and
nobody is coming for the fund again. The Banking ethics here do not allow
such money to stay more than 7 years, because the money will be recalled
to our Banks treasury as unclaimed fund after this period. In view of
this, I contacted a friend of mine who works with the Chamber of Commerce
and Industries to assist me in getting a reliable and trusted partner who
would submit an application as the next of kin or business partner to the
late customer of the bank.

 The reason for a foreigner in the business is for the fact that the
deceased man was a foreigner and it is not authorized by the law guiding
our Bank for a citizen of this country to make the claim of the fund.

So the request for you as a foreigner to come into the business is
necessary, it will facilitate the release and transfer of the funds
smoothly to your nominated bank account as the only surviving
relation/partner to the deceased.. If you can conveniently assure me of
your ability to keep this business very secret and confidential, you can
write back to me giving me your telephone/fax numbers so that I can send
to you the specimen application for claims which you have to send to our

  Please, note that upon the successful transfer of the funds to your bank
account, you shall be entitled to 30% of the total funds while the rest
will be given to me on arrival in your country. I will not fail to bring
to your notice that this business is risk free and doesn't have any
negative implication.

You should not entertain any fear as all modalities for the smooth and
easy transfer of this fund have been finalized.

  This transaction will be completed within 14 bank working days
immediately we start the business.

I Waiting for your urgent response
