country who died accidentally On the 21st of April 2004. Sir, I gathered all this information

Since then I have made several inquiries to American embassy here in Dakar Senegal to locate any of 
his extended relatives or family, this has also proved unsuccessful to locate any member of his 
family hence I contacted you. I am his account officer and I contact you to work with you before 
the fund get confiscate or declared unserviced by the bank
management and board of my directors because the management of my bank has been deliberating on how 
to revert this fund to the bank privacy and Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the 
relatives for over 3 years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the 
deceased since you are a foreigner so that the proceeds of this account valued at eighteen million 
two hundred thousand united state dollars
can be paid to you and then you and I will share the money fifty percent to me and forty percent to 
you, while ten percent will be mapped out for any miscellaneous expenses that might incur in the 
cause of this transaction.

sure that this fund is not wasted or end up in the wrong hands. All I require is your honest and 
sincere co-operation to enable us see this ordeal and claim through, again I
guarantee you that this transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will
