Dear Friend,

How are you today and business in your country? I am Dr. Siraj Diop, Bank Manager of Bank of Africa 
(boa) dakar Branch. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail 
confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail. I 
contacted you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this communication. I 
know you would be wondering why I am writing you with a request such as this but I only urge you to 
read on.

Sometime in 1999, a certain consultant/contractor Mr. Glen Hatleberg made a numbered time (Fixed) 
Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at large amount (Amount withheld for known reasons) in 
my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address in America but 
got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract 
employers, the Senegal Solid Minerals Corporation that Mr. Glen Hatleberg died longside his wife, 
from an airplane crash.

Further proof of the death of Mr. Glen Hatleberg is in the following web pages for you to make 
confirmations and further research about his death:


If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer 
anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In hi s bio-data form, 
he listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking, opening an account with us means no one 
will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes 
to make the accounts anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having their mail 
sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account. Private 
banking clients apart from not nominating any next of kin also usually in most cases leave WILLS in 
our care, in this case; Mr. Glen Hatleberg died intestate.

In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away, my bank conducted a 
search in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate. This has for the past 
months been unfruitful. This sum has since been sitting in my bank and the interest is being rolled 
over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one, it is evident is going to come forward 
for it. Accor ding to the Laws of my environment, at the expiration of 7(seven) years, the money 
will revert to the ownership of the Senegal Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. What I 
wish to relate to you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand something. It 
is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world 
aberrational. The world of banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy 
certain offices and oversee certain portfolios.

You should have begun by now to put together the general direction of what I propose as I alone 
have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one unless evidence of 
relationship with the deceased, which I shall provide you with, is presented. I alone know of the 
existence of this deposit for as far as the Bank of Africa Dakar is concerned, the bank's 
management has no single idea of the history or nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting 
instructions to release the deposit to the party that comes forward. This is the situation. My bank 
has spent great amounts of money trying to track this man's family; they have investigated for 
months and have found no relative. The investigation has come to an end.

Consequently, what I propose is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin 
to Mr. Glen Hatleberg so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of 
some corrupt government officials. Acting in this capacity really is simple as I will explain in 
detail to you when I get your response. However, I wish to state that because of my level of 
involvement, when you are awarded the funds and it has been paid into your account, it will be 
shared 60/30 between us and the outstanding 10% for miscellaneous/incurred expenses from the total 
sum of $15,000,000.00 USD.(Fifteen Million United State Dollars)

Being aware of this request I am making, I ask that if you find no interest in this project that 
you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my offer is 
of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. You may not know this but 
people like me who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private banking 
sector. I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard 
for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such 
opportunities only come ones' way once in a lifetime. If you will not work with me let me know and 
I will move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to 
provide my family with new opportunities. The reward for this project makes it is a task well worth 
undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work 
with me and alerting my bank.

My position as th e Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you 
find yourself able to work with me, I urge you to indicate to that effect by contacting me through 
this email address.
Upon your response, if favorable, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant 
information that will help you get full understanding of this. I wish to inform you that should you 
contact me via official channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. Contact me only 
through the numbers I will provide for you and also through this email address. I do not want any 
direct link between you and me. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically 
monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management Policy.

Please, again, note I am a family man; I have a wife and children, but I know within me that 
nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of 
gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my 
confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting, soon.

In closing, please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this transaction would 
be most profitable for both of us. After receiving your reply, I will then furnish you with a more 
comprehensive detail of this transaction and what is required.

Awaiting your urgent reply.

Yours Sincerely,
Mr siraj diop.
