 Dear Sir/Madam

 I sincerely ask for forgiveness for I know this may seem like a complete
 intrusion to your privacy but right about now this is my option of
 communication. This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation
 to ignore it as unserious could come into your mind; but please consider it
 as a divine wish and accept it with a deep sense of humility.

 I am aware that this is certainly an unconventional approach to starting a
 relationship. I am Mr. Akin Emmanuel, the personal account officer to the
 great late diseased who has an account in one of our banks here in Burkina
 Faso. The account was opened in2001and he died in 2004 without a written
 or oral WILL and since 2004 nobody has operated on this account again hence
 the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will
 be forfeited for nothing and Government of Burkina Faso will confiscate the
 funds for their personal use which I personally don't want such incident to
 happen being that this is a great opportunity for me.

 My contact is for you to please assist me to transfer the fund
 ($10.6000.000.00 USD) Ten Million Six Hundred Thousand United State Dollars
 from a Cooperate Bank here in Burkina Faso to an overseas account.First, I
 must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction. This is by
 virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential. I am sure and have
 confidence of your ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of
 this great magnitude. I solicit your assistance to enable us transfer the
 said amount into your safe account for onward investment.

 You can either provide us with an existing account or to set up anew Bank
 account immediately to receive this money, even an empty a/c can serve to
 receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end of
 this important business trusting in you and believing that you will never
 let me down either now or in future because this business is my life. The
 owner of this account is a foreigner and no other person knows about this
 account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and
 until his death he was the manager of the company. My investigation through
 the National immigration department & Ministries here proved to me aswell
 that he was single as at the time of his entry into the Republic of Burkina
 Faso. As a matter of fact, I have decided totransfer this fund abroad for
 investment and also to use my own share of the fund to take my wife to
 abroad for liver damage treatment. Your assistance as a foreigner is
 necessary because the management of the bank will welcome any foreigner who
 has correct information to this account which I will give to you
 immediately, if you are interested to do this business with me. Thereisno
 risk in this business. With my position here in the bank the money can be
 transferred to any account you can provide with assurance that this money
 will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing.
 Upon successful transfer without any disappointment from your side, I am
 only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot beapprovedto
 a local person here, but can only be approved to any foreigner who hasthe
 correct information of the account, which I will provide for you. So you
 should provide me with your correct account details where you willlikethe
 fund to be transferred to, or you can set up a new account forthetransfer
 even an empty account is ok. At the conclusion of the transfer youwilltake
 40%, 10% will be for any expenses both parties incurred in the process of
this business and the remaining 50% will be for me. As soon as I hear from
 you and upon your strong assurance that you will not let me down once the
 fund goes into your account I will then send you the Text of application
 form which you will fill with your banking information and send to mybank
 here for immediate transfer of the fund to your account. If you are
