I am Mr. Ebrahim Sido a Director in African Development Bank (ADB) Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
I Hoped that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that i am about to establish with you for the mutual benefit of you and I. I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($10.5) millions dollars into your account within 7 working banking days. This money has been dormant for years in our Bank without claim due to the owner of this fund died along with his entire family and supposed next of kin in an air crash since July 31st 2000.
I want our bank to release these funds to you as the nearest person to our deceased customer while i come over to your country to share this fund with you as soon as you confirm this fund into your account and ask me to come over. I don't want the money to go into our Bank treasure as an abandoned fund. So this is the reason why i contacted you so that our bank will release this money to you as the next of kin to the deceased customer. Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it if you are not interesting.
Upon the receipt of your reply and indication of your capability, i will give you full details on how the business will be executed and also note that you will have 50% of the above mentioned sum if you agree to handle this business with me while the remaining 50% will be for me because i don't want anyone here in our bank to know my involvement until you confirm this fund into your account and ask me to come over for the sharing as i indicated.
i am looking forward to hearing from you immediately,
Thanks with my best regards
From Mr Ebrahim Sido
