 Dear Friend,  
  I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have never met before, but need not to 
worry as I am using the only secured and confidential medium available to seek for your foreign 
assistance in a business. I am contacting you independently of my investigation and no one is 
informed of this communication.
   I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($12.5 million united state dollar.) 
immediately to your private account. The money has been here in our Bank lying dormant for nine 
good years now without anybody coming for the claim of it. I want to release the money to you as 
the nearest person to our deceased customer (the account owner) who died a long with his supposed 
NEXT OF KIN since August 1997.
  The Banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than 13 years, because the money 
will be recalled to the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. Upon receipt of your reply indicating your 
interest in this transaction, I will send you full details on how the business will be executed. 
  Please keep this proposal as a top secret and delete if you are not interested. 
 Bank Of Africa, Burkina Faso-West Africa.
