Hello, I apologize if the contents hereunder are contrary to your moral ethics.But please treat this proposal with absolute secrecy and personal. My name is Mr.Hassan Bello,the Head of Banking Operation of a prominent bank in African .I discovered a dormant account in my office recently, while auditing some accounts of our esteemed corporate customers.On further investigation I also discovered that the account holder was a victim of the last Bellview air disaster which claimed about 117 persengers on board.Because I am the account officer of this esteemed customer,I contacted his family personally to help them claim his deposit with our bank.I called his home and asked to speak with his wife but the young man who answered the call told me that his mother was late long ago so I requested that he meet meet me at my office the following day.Upon his arrival at the office I told him about his father account with us which is worth about $9,500,000.00 and informed him about his right to the account because he was named next-of-kin in the account holder record with us. However,the young Mr. Argungu told me that since his father died ,that life has been hellish for him and his only sister as his uncles bent at acquiring all their father's properties since they are still minors besides the man did not leave a WILL. He however pleaded with me to help him get a foreign who could claim the amount and use same to sponsor their educational pursuit abroad. If you are ready to strike this "Deal" , you will retain 30% of the total amount at the end of the transaction. On receipt of your positive reply with your contact information, I will detail you further. Warmest regards, Mr. Hassan Bello. +2348033180067
