Strictly Confidential? Dear, This letter might be surprise to you because; we have not meet neither in person nor by correspondence. But I believe it is one day that you get to know somebody either in physical or through correspondence. We want to transfer to overseas ($85,000.000.00 USD)Eighty five million United States Dollars) from a Bank in Africa to correspondence bank abroad (OVERSEA CREDIT COMMISSION MADRID SPAIN), I want to ask you 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 of this important business. I am trusting in you and believing in God that you will never let me down either now or in future. I am MR. Fred Fidel, I am an Auditor of a Bank in Africa, during the course of our auditing I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in 1990, and since 1999 nobody has been operating 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]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. Antonio Diaz Leon, a foreigner and he died since 1998. As a matter of fact, no other person knows about this account or any thing Concerning to it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that Mr. Antonio Diaz Leon until his death was the manager Allied Group of Companies. We will start the first transfer with Fifty two million [$52,000.000] upon successful transaction without any disappoint from your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining rest amount to your account. In February 25th 1999, I trusted a foreigner with a similar task but he ran away with the whole amount of money when it got into his account. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local person here,without valid international foreign passport,but can only be approved to any foreigner with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign a/c because the money is in us Dollars and the former owner of the a/c Mr.Antonio Diaz Leon is a foreigner too, [and the money can only be approved into a foreign a/c. However, we will sign a binding agreement, to bind us together . Send also your private telephone and fax number including the full details of the account to be used for the deposit. I want us to meet face to face to build confidence and to sign a binding agreement that will bind us together before transferring the money to any account of your choice where the fund will be safe. Or you will appoint an Attorney here who will represent you if you are not able to come to Africa or Spain because I do work with the affilate bank here in Madrid Spain as an Auditor. Before we fly to your country for withdrawal, sharing and investments. I need your full co-operation to make this work fine. Because the arrangement is now ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you, upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and will meet up with instruction of a key bank official who is deeply involved with me in this business need your strong assurance that you will never,never let me down. 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 destroy all documents of transaction immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any place and to build confidence you can come immediately to discuss with me face to face after which I will make this remittance in your presence and three of us will fly to your country atleast two days ahead of the money going into the account. I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you are ready to act and receive this fund in your account. 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. I look forward to your earliest reply through my email address. We have concluded to allow you tell us how much percentage (%) you think that will be enough for you in helping us conclude this transaction. You are free to tell me your mind your mind or you can ask me any question that you feel. Yours Truly, Fred Fidel
