My name is MR. JOHN KANI; I am the operational manager in account management section in charge of credit and foreign bills of one of the prime banks here in DUBLIN IRELAND
. I am writing in
respect of a foreign customer of my bank who perished with his whole families
on the 25THJULY, 2000 CONCORDE PLANE
CRASH [Flight AF459] with the hole passengers on aboard. There is an
account opened in this bank in 1998 by this great late INDUSTRIALIST who died without a written or oral WILL attached to
the account. Since his death, I personally have watched with keen interest to
see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his
funds 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 total amount involved is $26,000,000.00 USD [Twenty Six million United States Dollars]. We wish to start the first transfer with $6,000,000.00[Six million] and open successful transaction without any disappointment from your side; we shall re-apply for the transfer of the remaining balance to your account. I have secretly discussed this matter with the general manager of the bank who I must involve in order to have a smooth and a successful transfer of the fund to any foreign bank account which you are going to nominate.

I want us to meet face to face or sign a binding agreement to bind us together so that you can receive this money into a foreign account or any account of your choice where the fund will be safe. And I will fly to your country for with drawl and sharing and other investments.
I am contacting you because of the need to involve a foreigner with foreign account and foreign beneficiary. I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner, who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you later immediately, if you are able and with capability to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust according to my instructions and advice for our mutual benefit because this opportunity will never come again in my life.

presence and two of us will fly to your country at least two days ahead of the
money going into the account. I will apply for annual leave to get visa

your account. I will use my position and influence to effect legal approvals
and onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance
forms of the ministries and foreign exchange departments. At the conclusion of
the transfer 65% of the fund will be for me, I will give you 20% of the total
transfer sum, 10% for charity both in Africa and in your country while the
remaining 5% will be set aside to settle expenses both parties might insure
during the transfer process. I look forward to your earliest reply; I look
