DEAR SIR/ MADAM,

MY NAME IS MR. OKAFOR ISRAEL; I AM THE EASTERN REGION 
BRANCH MANAGER OF THE WEMA BANK PLC, OF LAGOS NIGERIA. I DO NOT WANT 
PROBLEMS BUT I JUST HOPE YOU CAN ASSIST ME. I WRITE YOU THIS LETTER IN 
GOOD FAITH. I AM IN CONTROL OF THE SUM OF (13 MILLION UNITED STATES 
DOLLARS ONLY). WHICH WAS AN EXCESS OF PROFIT MADE BY OUR EASTERN REGION 
BRANCH OFFICE IN THE LAST QUARTER OF THE YEAR 2003, WHICH I HAVE 
CAREFULLY PLACED IN AN ESCROW CALL DEPOSIT ACCOUNT AND DID NOT DECLARE 
THIS TO MY HEAD OFFICE, CAN I REALLY TRUST YOU TO HOLD THIS MONEY FOR 
ME UNTIL I ARRIVE YOUR COUNTRY AND PICK IT UP MYSELF AND YOU DEDUCT 30% 
OF THE TOTAL MONEY AS YOUR COMMISSION? ALL I NEED IS FOR YOU TO GET ME 
A GOOD CURRENT ACCOUNT IN YOUR BANK WHERE I CAN MOVE THIS MONEY; I WILL 
DISCREETLY GIVE YOU ALL THE INFORMATION CONCERNING THE ACCOUNT AND THE 
DEPOSIT SO THAT YOU CAN APPLY TO THE BANK FOR THE RELEASE OF THE 
MONEY. 

THERE IS PRACTICALLY NO RISK INVOLVED; IT WILL BE SIMPLE BANK-
TO-BANK TRANSFER. I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND MY SITUATION.

TAKE MY WORD. 
THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS.
