Permit the manner with which I am seeking your assistance but I am short of options and have no other choice. My name is Mr. John Gelsthorp I am the accountant of the First Inland Bank Victoria Island Abuja. I am a Nigerian married with two kids.

I am writing to solicit your assistance in the noble transfer of USD$2.800,000.00 ( Two million, eight hundred thousand Dollars ). This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the accountant made as profit during the last year. I have already submitted an approved end of the last year report for the year 19th Dec 2008 and also submitted report of first quarter of this year 5th Jan 2009 to my Head Office here in Abuja and they will never know of this access. I have used my position to write off the excess fund of ( USD$2.800,000.00 ) and placed it on what we call SUSPENSE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money, thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I assure and promise to intend to part with 35% of this fund to you while 65% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer to your nominated bank account anywhere you feel safer.

All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund. Please I am looking forward to hear from you, so as to give you the procedures. Please reply me via my email center enabled ( ) or call me now on: +234 -80-68781291. If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response.

Please assure me of your keeping this topmost secret within you so that my job would not be jeopardized.

Thanks and be bless.

My Sincere Regards,

John Gelsthorp
