Greetings from Abidjan

Before I introduce myself, I wish to inform you that this letter is not a hoax mail and I urge you 
to treat it serious. We want to transfer to overseas account ($160,000.000.00 ) One hundrend and 
sixty million US DOLLARS from a prime Bank here in Abidjan. I want to ask you, If you are not 
capable to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable and fit to provide 
either an existing bank account or to set up a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even 
an empty a/c can serve to receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end 
for this important business trusting in you and believing in God that you will never let me down 
either now or in future

I am Mr.willson victor , presently promoted to Auditor General in one of the banks here in Abijian 
cote d'ivore. During the course of our auditing last week, I discovered a floating fund in an 
account opened in the bank in 2007 and since 2010 nobody has operated on this account again, after 
going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without 
a [Heir/WILL] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be 
forfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is Mr. Keith Lathan an American and a great 
industrialist and a resident of Alaska State, who unfortunately lost his life in the Auto crash in 
Alaska , which crashed on January 31 2007 including his wife and only daughter leaving nobody to 
claim the money. No other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account 
has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that the account is a secret 

The total amount involved is One hundrend and sixty million US DOLLARS only [160,000.000.00 DOLLARS 
] and we wish to transfer this money into a safe foreigners account abroad. But I don't know any 
foreigner; I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a local 
person here, but to a foreigner who has information about the account, which I shall give to you 
upon your positive response. I am revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let 
me down in this business, you are the first and the only person that I am contacting for this 
business, so please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take urgently. I need 
your strong assurance that you will never let us down, me and a key bank official who is deeply 
involved with me in this business.

I guarantee you that this transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will 
protect you from any breach of the law. The bank official will destroy all documents of the 
transaction immediately you receive this money leaving no trace to any place. I will use my 
position and influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your 
account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange departments At 
the conclusion of this business, you will be given 30% of the total amount, 70% will be for us. 

I look forward to hear from you.

Best Regards

willson victor .
