Howa re you doing? With hope all is alright. Please treat this message strictly confidential and do not be surprise over this unexpected and sudden communication to you. I got your contact from a reliable international directory where I decided to choose you as to assist me pull into your account the sum of Seven Million, Five hundred Thousand United States Dollars ($7.500, 000.00) from our bank.
The beneficiary of this account died (May his soul rest in peace) with his family 6years ago in a Kenya Plane Crash 2003, and no body were officially intestate to stand for the claim as the next of kin.
Therefore, I need your attention and trust so we can make a two man deal in order to move this fund to your account and once the fund is transferred into your account, every chapter of this deal will be sealed. Before we can achieve this successfully, you should apply to our bank as the business partner/extended relative to the deceased. Nevertheless, I will use my good office to ensure that my bank granted urgent approval for the release of this fund to you immediately.
Hence the fund is released; I will resign quickly to join you over there in your country for disbursement of the fund. I will tell you what will be your share on your response to this message and we have to start the process immediately to avoid our bank to send the fund to central bank of Burkina Faso as an unknown beneficiary and unclaimed fund.
I am waiting for your response through my private email
