transfer of ($ 25,200.000.00) twenty five million, two hundred
thousand dollars

I am mr John Adams, the auditor general of african development bank here in 
burkina faso. during the course of our auditing; i discovered a floating 
fund in an account opened in the bank by mr john korovo,  after going 
through some old files in the records i discovered that the owner of the 
account died in  the (Beirut-bound charter jet) plane crash on the 25th 
december 2003 in cotonou (republic of Benin). here is 
since then nobody has operated on this account again,

the owner of this account is mr john korovo a foreigner, and a trader who 
trade on gold and mining and he died, since 2003 and 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 mr john korovo 
die along with his entire family.

the amount involved is ($ 25.2 m) twenty-five million, two hundred  thousand 
united states dollars only , i am only contacting you as a foreigner because 
this money can not be approved to a local person here, with valid 
international foreign passport, but can only be approved to any foreigner 
with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign account 
because the money is in us dollars and the former owner of the account mr 
john korovo is a foreigner too, and the money can only be approved into a 
foreign account.

i need your strong assurance that you will never, never cheat me as soon as 
this fund hit into your account. with my influence and the position of the 
bank official we can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account 
which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending 
our physical arrival in your country for sharing. the bank official will 
prove all documents of transaction immediately for you to receive this fund 
leaving no trace to any place and to build confidence.

i will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately i hear from you that 
you are ready receive this fund in your account .at the conclusion of this 
business, you will be given 30% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, 
while 10% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the 
process of transferring.

please if you are interested forward to me your;
