Dear Good Friend, I am Mr. Peter Job, The Chief Auditor/Information Manager, In-Charge of Foreign Unit of our bank and I have had the intent to contact you over this financial transaction/transfer worth the sum of Twenty Four Million Five Hundred Thousand Great British Pounds (24.5Million GBP).This is an abandoned sum that belongs to our late foreign customer who died in plane crash disaster along with his wife. I was privileged to see the deceased deposit file bearing this huge amount of money when I was inspecting the dated and current customer’s files in other to sign and submit to the entire bank management for an official validation / re-documentation against the statement approval to the account holders for the year. In a swift investigation carried out by me, I found out that none of the deceased relative is aware of the abandoned fund except his late wife. As a result of that, it is an extremely confidential matter between me and you. Hence you are a foreigner to our country, you are authorized by our Banking law to apply and claim the fund into your account as the NEXT-OF-KIN to the deceased. For assisting me to get the fund transferred into your bank account, the ratio of 40% of the total sum is for your share whereas 50% is for me as business pioneer and the balance 10% will be used in paying back any expenses we might incurred in having this done. Please I need your urgent response on assurance of trust that you will not deny my right of the share once the fund gets into your account because I am a poor civil servant who depend on little monthly salary. I will come over to your country as soon as the funds arrives your account to invest my share in any profitable business venture as soon as I resign from my work on the instant of the transfer into your account. If you are really sure of your integrity, trustworthy, and confidentiality, reply urgently and to prove that, include your particulars as follows.
