Greetings from Abidjan

Before I introduce myself, I wish to inform you that this letter is not a hoax mail and I
urge you to treat it serious. We want to transfer to overseas account
(30,000.000.00 DOLLARS) Thirty million US DOLLARS  ) from a prime Bank here in
Abidjan. I want to ask you, If you are not capable to quietly look for a reliable and
honest person who will be capable and fit to provide either an existing bank account
or to set up a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an empty a/c
can serve to receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end
for this important business trusting in you and believing in God that you will never let
me down either now or in future

I am Mr. Willson Victor , presently promoted to Auditor General in one of the banks
here in Abijian cote d'ivore . During the course of our auditing last week, I discovered
a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 1996 and since 1998 nobody has
operated on this account again, after going through some old files in the records I
discovered that the owner of the account died without a [Heir/WILL] hence the money
is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. The
owner of this account is Mr. Keith Lathan an American and a great industrialist and a
resident of Alaska State, who unfortunately lost his life in the plane, crash of Alaska
Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only
daughter leaving nobody to claim the money . 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 the account is a secret account.

The total amount involved is Thirty million US DOLLARS  only [30,000.000.00 DOLLARS  ]
and we wish to transfer this money into a safe foreigners account abroad. But I don't know
any foreigner; 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,
which I shall give to you 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 need your strong assurance that you will never let us down, me and a
key bank official who is deeply involved with me in this business.

I guarantee you that this transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will
protect you from any breach of the law. The bank official will destroy all documents of the
transaction immediately you receive this money leaving no trace to any place. 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 departments

At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 30% of the total amount, 70% will be for us.

I look forward to your earliest reply,please reply to me through this email (

Best Regards

Willson Victor.
