DEAR PARTNER, First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly CONFIDENTIAL AND TOP SECRET. PLEASE REPLY TO MY PRIVATE E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org ------------------ However We were directed by the council of ministers to carry out a careful and comprehensive review of all overdue payments to foreign customers and to effect payments immediately. During the above mentioned process, we discovered an abandoned sum of US$10.5M (Ten million five hundred thousand US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in a plane crash that happened in Kenya, East Africa. Since we got information about his death, which the bank have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because the bank cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash. Please I want you to visit the website below for more information about the Plane Crash: www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/07/20/kenya.crash/index.html www.news24.com/News24/Africa/News/0,,2-11-1447_1390626,00.html It is therefore upon this discovery that I send this business proposal to you so that the fund can be release to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and the bank don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account where the fund will be transfer, and 60% would be for me, while 10% will be for expenses incure during the transaction. There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated. Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation 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 wherein the money will be remitted. Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send to you by email the text of the application to fill and send to the bank. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free risk and this transaction will only take us 14 banking days because as a banker, I know what to do and move the fund into your account without any delay and that you should not entertain any atom of fear. YOU SHOULD CONTACT ME THROUGH MY PRIVATE E-MAIL ADDRESS:(email@example.com) ....................as soon as you receive this letter so that I will send you the text of the application to apply to the bank and the data information of the deceased. BY INDICATING YOUR BANK ACCOUNT DETALS WHERE THE FUND WILL BE TRANSFERED TO. ALSO, SEND ME YOUR PRIVATE PHONE NUMBER FOR EASY COMMUNICATION. Yours faithfully, MR.MOUSSA ABDOUL Bill & Exchange Manager.
