Dear friend,
I assume you and your family are in good health.
I am  Mohammed Salman, the Foreign Operations Manager in African Development Bank Group  here in Burkina Faso.  This being a wide world in which it can be difficult to make new acquaintances and because it is virtually impossible to know who is trustworthy and who can be believed, i have decided to repose confidence in you after much fasting and prayer.   It is only because of this that I have decided to confide in you and to share with you this confidential business.
  In my bank; there resides an overdue and unclaimed sum of thirteen million two hundred thousand United States dollars ($13,200,000.00).  When the account holder suddenly passed away in a private jet crash , he left no beneficiary who would be entitled to the receipt of these fund.  For this reason, i have found it expedient to transfer this fund to a  trustworthy individual with capacity to act as foreign business partner.  Thus i humbly request your assistance to claim this fund.
    Upon the transfer of this fund in your account, you will take 32%  as your share from the total fund, 10%  will be shared to Charity Organizations in both  country and 58% will be for me.
Please if you are really sure  you can handle this project, contact me immediately
I am looking forward to read from you soon.
Yours faithfully,
Mohammed Salman
