Dear friend,

How are you doing with your family?I presume that all is well with you.I am the manager of audit and accounting department at the foreign unit of our bank.I know that this letter will come to you as a surprise but,I got your contact from the international directory when i was looking for a foreigner who will assist me to achieve a great success business that will yeild us life success. Before i wrote you,i prayed that you will be a honest and reliable person whom i can work with to achieve this deal of our life.

Attached Message
You have to understand that i come acrossed this huge amount of money when i 
was arranging the departmental customers file to submit to the bank 
management for the annual audit of the year.Since the bank got information 
about the death of the deceased man, the bank have been expecting his next 
of kin to apply and claim his money because the bank cannot release the fund 
unless a person from any foreign countries apply for the transfer of the 
fund as the next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our 
banking guidelines but unfortunately i learnt through investigations that 
all his supposed next of kin died alongside with him at the plane crash 
leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery 
that I now decided to make this business proposal to you so that you will 
apply to the bank tol release the money to you as the next of kin or 
relation for safety and subsequent sharing since nobody is coming for it.

For us to achieve this businesss immediately,the percentage ratio for 
sharing the fund when the bank release the fund to you must be arranged.So i 
accept that thirty percent of the fund(30%) will be for you as a foreigner 
for the provision of any bank account where the bank will transfer the money 
into including other of your participation during the process of the 
transfer,Sixty percent (60%) will be for me as the person who explores the 
business,Four percent of the fund (10%) will be for the expenses which may 
come forth during the transfer of the fund,

Thereafter I will visit your country for sharing the money according to the 
percentages indicated above.So for the immediate transfer of this fund into 
your bank account as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as the only 
existening next of kin to the deceased customer by indicating in the 
application the bank account  information where you will request the bank to 
transfer the fund into.So if you accept to help me in other to achieve this 
great business,i will send to you through email or by fax,an Application 
form of claim which you will fill with your account information and send to 
the bank for the transaction to start immediately.

Please i would like you to know the following informations.(1.) This 
business is HUNDRED PERCENT FREE FROM RISK.(2.)You will not face any much 
questions because the application will bear the brief information of the 
deceased which the bank may like to know.(3.) If you will follow my 
instructions and directives,this transaction will be completed within a 
short  period of time.(4.)You should keep this business CONFIDENTIAL or 
SECRET until the fund get transfered into your account for safety and 
security purpose.

Finally,contact me through my email address so that we will proceed with 
this business immediately.

My regards to you and your family.
