Attached Message
 My dear, I am contacting you in regards to a business transaction of
a huge sum of money from a deceased account.
Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one
apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well
at the end of the transaction. Meanwhile, I decided to contact you due
to the urgency of this transaction.
PROPOSITION; I discovered an abundant sum of $2.5 Million US Dollars
in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died
along with his entire family in a plane crash. Since his death, none
of his next-of-kin or relations has come forward to lay claims to his
account (fund) with this bank (boa).
This fund cannot be released from his account unless someone applies
for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our
banking guide lines. Upon this discovery,
I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the
deceased person, and all information concerning the deceased person
and the fund will be giving to you by me as an insider of the bank.

All documentations involved concerning the deceased will be carefully
worked out by me for the fund to be released in your favour as the
next of kin and beneficiary of the fund. It may interest you to note
that I have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate
any of the deceased beneficiaries. Acknowledge the receipt of this
message in acceptance of my mutual business proposal because it will
bring more financial increase in our life.
On your acceptance I will send to you an application letter you
re-send to the appropriate departments of the bank for necessary
approvals in your favour before the transfer will be processed.

I shall be compensating you with 30% of the fund while 60% will be for
me and 10% will be set aside for the expenses that might inure during
the transaction.
And I will also let you know that while your share stays with you,
mine shall be for investment purposes in your country.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of
the trust I have bestowed in you.
I'm waiting your urgent response.

Yours faithfully,
 Mr. Brama Nikima
