Dear Friend,
I write to you as a matter of uttermost urgency in respect
of a business transaction which I trust will be of interest
to you.  It pertains certain accounts which in the wake of
the September 11 attacks were "MARKED" by the Counter- terrorism
unit of the FBI, these accounts are belonging to key Arab
businessmen and influential players in the mid-east, these
accounts have been a subject of investigation and has since been
cleared by the FBI and I have been entrusted with the duty of
returning these accounts to the rightful owners but unfortunately
a lot of these people are nowhere to be found.
Should you be interested, my proposal is for you to be the sole
beneficiary of these funds which is running into $126,000,000.00 USD.
(One Hundred and Twenty Six Million Dollars)
This partnership is to be on 50%-50% basis and with my position
and as an insider; everything would be perfectly executed under a
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of
the law. But you have to be confidential!
If this proposition offends your moral values, do accept my
apology,and ignore this mail. However, if you are interested
provide me your name, address and relevant bio-data on this email
Yours faithfully,
Mr. Jon Burns.
