I received encouraging information about you and how trusts worthy you are. I am delighted with such useful information. I am a staff of Auditing and Accounting department of (WACO SECURITY COMPANY WEST AFRICA)Ouagadougou Burkina Faso,

I Hoped that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that I am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our both families. I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($18.5) million to your account within 10 or 14 working days. This money has been dormant for years in our company without claim. I want the company to release the money to you as the nearest person to our deceased customer (the owner of the money) died along with his supposed next of kin in an air crash since July 2000. I don't want the money to go into our company treasurer as an abandoned fund.

So this is the reason why I contacted you so that the company can release the money to you as the next of kin to the deceased customer.(MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich , Germany ) Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it if you are not interested.

Upon receipt of your reply I will give you full details on how the business will be executed and also, note that you will have 40% of the above mentioned sum if you agree to handle this business with me.

Waiting to hear from you.
Yours truly,
