Dear Sir,I wish to inform you that this mail should be handled as a very important one and treated seriously. We want to transfer to an overseas account the sum of $19,000.000.00 (Nineteen million United States Dollars ) from a prime Bank here in Abidjan, Cote D'Ivoire.
I want to advise you also that if you are not capable of handling this risk-free transaction, quietly look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable and willing to provide either an existing bank account or to set up a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this fund, even an empty a/c can serve, as long as you will remain honest to me till the conclusion this important business.I am trusting in you and believing in God that you will never betray this trust and confidence reposed on you either now or in the near future.
I am Mr Kamara Guei , working in one of the banks here in Abidjian cote d'ivore .I am the accounts officer to the account of the late wife to the president of Nigeria STELLA OBASANJO. During a routine cheek on files in my department, I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [Heir/WILL],which proves to me that nobody knows about the existence of such account or the amount in it. If I do not remit this funds out immediately it will be forfeited for nothing since the government of this country knows about her death.
The owner of this account is MRS. STELLA OBASANJO, the late wife of the president of Nigeria (OLUSEGUN OBASANJO), a resident of Ogun State in Nigeria ,she unfortunately lost her life in a plastic surgery in Spain, October 23th 2005. No other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that the account is a secret one. There are other information that I will reveal to you over the telephone which is strictly confidential. I and some of my colleagues in our department have decided to transfer this fund to a foreign account but the problem is that we don't know any trusted foreigner who will provide his bank account details for the transfer.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 and I will provide you with all the information required for the smooth transfer of this fund into your bank account.I shall furnish you with the detail 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 the next step to take urgently.
I guarantee you that this transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. l will destroy all documents of the transaction immediately you receive this money leaving no trace to any place or person. I will use my position and influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange department of the central bank here.
At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 30% of the total amount, 70% will be for us. All expenses incurred in the process of this transaction will be reimbursed before the sharing of the fund. Please treat this mail as very important and not disclose this information to the bank officials when they contact you.I will appreciate if you send your response to this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to your earliest reply. Best Regards, Mr. Kamara Guei. _________________________________________________________________ Testez Windows Live Mail Beta ! http://www.ideas.live.com/
