Greetings to you 
This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great friends and business partners. My name is Mr.ETO AKU. the present Head of Files/Records Department of a bank here in Benin Republic
West Africa. I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that I can trust you with the information I am about to reveal to you. Like I said, I have a transaction that will benefit both of us, as your assistance is required as a foreigner.
I use to head the Accounts department in my bank head office, but last December I was asked to take position of a Head of Files/Records of  our branch in
Cotonou who passed on, so that was how I became the present Head of Files/Records  and discovered a fortune. As I resumed duty, I discovered an account with total sum of $15 million that has not been operated on for the past 3 years. From my investigation, I found out that this account belongs to one Late Mr. CHRISTIAN EICH, a citizen of Germany who died on the recent plane crash on, Monday, 31 July, 2000.
   You can seach the Webside. site
I have kept a close monitoring of the account since then and nobody has come forward to claim the money as next of kin to the Late Mr  CHRISTIAN EICH, meaning that no one is aware of the account. I cannot directly take out this money without the help of a foreigner and that is why I am contacting you for an assistance to claim the funds and share it with me. As the Head of Files/Records  of my bank branch, I have the power influence the release of the funds to any foreigner that comes up as the next of kin to the account, with the correct information concerning the account, which I shall give you. I am seeking your co-operation to present you as the next of kin to the account. There is practically no risk involved, the transaction will be executed undera legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.
If you accept to work with me, I want you to state how you wish us to share the funds in percentage, so that both parties will be satisfied. Contact me as soon as you receive this message if you feel we can work together, so as to give you more details. Thanking you in advance and may God bless you. Please, treat with utmost confidentiality. I wait your urgent response. Meanwhile, I will like to speak with you on phone for more information.  Please you are to keep this transaction a top secret in view of my sensitive position at the bank.
#NOTE: These are required of you.
(1) Your full Name. .....................
(2) Your personal phone number. ..................
