The Manager, Bank of Scotland Limited, HBOS Treasury Services, 33,Old Broad Street, London EC2N 1HZ. Greetings From Mohamed Kone. This letter is not intended to cause any form of embarrasment, but rather intended to contact your highly esteemed self. I am writing to seek your consent in a private and confidential matter regarding some funds unaccounted for in our bank here in London during the last 2006 business year. I need assistance from a trustworthy and reliable Foriegner whom I will fill in as the beneficiary. Your major role would be to provide either an existing bank account or to set up a new Bank account immediately to receive this money and get 30% of the total funds as commission. There are practically no risks involved, the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect us from any breach of the law, it will be simply a bank-to-bank transfer, and all I need from you is to stand claim as the beneficiary (next of kin)so that my head office can order the transfer to your designated bank account under few working days. I am Mohamed Kone, the regional manager of Bank Of Scotland Limited , and I write you this proposal in good faith; I am married with five lovely kids. It is my duty as the regional manager to send in financial report to my head office in the capital city at the end of each business year. On the course of the last year 2005 business report, I discovered the sum of Twenty six million eight hundred and fifty thousand united state dollars 26,850,000.00 belonging to a foriengn Industrialist Kenneth Gardner who died without a beneficiary,in my branch in which I am the manager.Our head office is not aware of Funds and will never be aware of it. I have placed this funds on what we call escrow call account with no beneficiary and as an officer of this bank I cannot be directly connected to this money, hence i contacted you. If you accept to work with me I will appreciate it very much as you are the first and the only person I am contacting for this particular transaction. We will start the first transfer with sixteen million Dollars,upon successful transfer without any disappointment from your side,we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining amount to your account.At this juncture i wish to tell you what prompted me to package this deal. I have a 9-year old daughter who has leukemia,disease of the blood, and she needs a bone marrow transplant or she will die. I want this transplanting to be done in any good childrens hospital in your country if there is one. Once this fund is transferred into your account, I shall resign from my job and bring my family to start a new life in your country.I would be grateful if you would help me in looking out for good investment oppurtunities with my own part of the money in a very profitable business. I have worked for this bank for the past 15 years yet I have nothing to show for it, I really need your assistance to secure this fund as soon as possible. Reply me immediately through my most private email ddress(firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as you receive this message if you think we can work together, so that we can go over the details. Send also your Private mobile phone and fax nos: for more proper elaborations. Truly yours, Mohamed Kone. ____________________________________________________________________________________ Need Mail bonding? Go to the Yahoo! Mail Q&A for great tips from Yahoo!
