I am aware that this is certainly an unconventional approach to starting a relationship. I am Akin Emmanuel, the personal account officer to the late great Lebanese man, the diseased customer who has an account in one of our banks here in Burkina Faso. The fund has been lying in a suspense account without anybody coming to put claim over the money since the death of account owner who was involved in the December 25th  2003 Benin plane crash.

My contact for you is to assist me transfer the fund ($10.600, 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 setup a new Bank account immediately to receive this money, even an empty account 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, As a matter of fact, I have decided to transfer 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. There is no 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 be approved to a local person here, but can only be approved to any foreigner who has the correct information of the account, at the conclusion of the transfer you will take 40%, and the remaining 60% 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 more details about the transaction immediately for more understanding, If you are interested, please forward the following information as below:
