During our investigation and auditing in this bank , my department came
across a very hugesum of money belonging to a person who died on July 2003
in a plane crash and the fund has been dormant in his account with this
Bank with out any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family
or relation before our discovery to this developement.The said amount was
TWENTY-FIVE MILLION united states dollars.($25.000.000)

Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put the claim over this fund as the
bonafide next of kin to the deceased;get the required approval and transfer
this money to a foriegn account has been put in place and directives and
needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest
and willingness to assist us and also benefit your self to this
great business opportunity.Infact i could have done this deal alone but
because of my position in this country as a civiassist(A Banker),we are
not allowed to operate a foriegn account and wouldeventually raise an eye
brow on my side during the time of transfer becuase i work it may be after
due verification and assist by the correspondent branch
of the bank where the money will be remitted from to your own designation
bank account.

I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free.On
smooth conclusion of this transaction,you will be entitled to 40%of the

while 50% will be for me. Please;you have been adviced to keep top secret
as i am still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude
this deal with you.

I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm
the money in your account and ask me to come down to your country for subsequent
sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further
investment,either in your country or any country you advice us to invest.All
other necessary vital information will be sent to you when i hear from you.
