Dear Friend, I am pleased to get across to you for a very urgent and profitable business proposal, I got your e-mail address from the internet while browsing so I decided to contact you and ask for your assistance in this urgent matter, requiring trust and confidentiality. Reference to my investment discussions which I want to discuss with you now,I want you to patiently read this offer as it comes with the best of intentions as I wish to inform you that this letter is not a hoax mail but, I urge you to treat it seriously. I write this letter to you in good faith as we want to transfer to an overseas account the sum of US$12,850.000.00 (Twelve Million Eight Hundred Fifty Thousand United States Dollars) from a prime Bank here in London - united kingdom for investment purposes in your company. I want to know if you are interested and capable of handling this transaction by providing either an existing bank account or to set up a new Bank a/c 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 I am entrusting in you and believing in God that you will never let me down either now or in future. For the purpose of introduction, I am Dr. Abdul Kadir Gaya, recently promoted to Auditor General in one of the Apex banks here in London. During the course of our auditing last week, I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 1996 and since 1998 nobody has operated on this account again, after going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [HEIR/WILL] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently, it will be confiscated by the government for their selfish interest and forfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is Mr. Morris Thompson, an American, a great industrialist and a resident of Alaska State, who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 - 2000, including his wife and only daughter leaving nobody to claim the money. You can read more news about the crash on visiting this site; http://archives.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines. list/index.html. and if you want to know more about the man himself, You can check http://www.nativefederation.org/history/people/mThompson. html. No other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that the account is a secret account. The total amount involved is US$12,850.000.00 (Twelve Million Eight Hundred Fifty Thousand United States Dollars) and we wish to transfer this money into a safe foreigners account abroad for investment purposes. But I don't know any foreigner; I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a local person here, but to a foreigner who has information about the account, which I shall give to you upon your positive response. I am revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let me down in this business, you are the first and the only person that I am contacting for this business, so please reply urgently so that I will inform you on the next step to take urgently. I need your strong assurance that you will never let us down, me and a key bank official who is deeply involved with me in this business. I guarantee you that this transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. The bank official will destroy all documents of the transaction immediately you receive this money leaving no trace to any place. I will use my position and influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your nominated account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange departments. At the conclusion of this business, I will give you 20% of the fund for this assistance. I am aware of the international monitoring of all large-scale financial movements after the September 11th 2001 terrorist attack on America and to avoid any state of financial Investigation, I will provide a classified clearance paper from the relevant bodies that will exonerate the money from drug, money laundery or terrorist related proceeds.
