Message from Sender:


I am the Deputy Bank Manager of Bank of Alexandria Egypt. I am writing following an opportunity in my office that will be of benefit to both of us. In my department we discovered an abandoned treasure that contain the sum of(Twenty million five hundred thousand Us Dollars)in safe keeping room that belongs to Muhammad Hosni Sayyid Mubarak and Since the present crisis here in Egypt, we seek to use this opportunity to transfer the funds to a foreign account in the US, which i and my colleague are ready to split the funds among ourself in other to have a better life and assist the homeless people here in Eqypt,and to also avoid Mubarak from getting away with the funds. We have decided to give 30% of the funds to anyone who will be willing to assist us with an off-shore account that we could lodge this money into.

We have now decided to make the deal with you and make sure we bring it out as the partner of beneficiary of the deposited treasure for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement since he will not be able to access the funds at this present moment as he can not account for it. And we don't want this money to go back into Bank as unclaimed
