Mr Morgan Smith FOREIGN OPERATIONS DEPARTMENT BANQUE TOGOLAISE POUR LE COMMERCE ET L'INDUSTRIE Private email;email@example.com Phone +2289078630 Pardon me for the mode that I have chosen to contact you, inappropriate maybe, but prompted by utmost need and urgency. Be informed that this is a sensitive proposition for assistance that must be kept between the two of us in confidence. Express your acceptance of this term when you respond. I am Mr.morgan smith the Head of the FOREIGN OPERATIONS DEPARTMENT. BANQUE TOGOLAISE POUR LE COMMERCE ET L'INDUSTRIE of Togo in West Africa. I am contacting you for a transaction that will be mutually beneficial. My bank has on its list of "Dormant" accounts, one in the name of a John Schelpert, formerly a resident in Lome, Togo, and owned SCHELPERT & BROTHERS TRADING COMPAINY SARL in Lome, Republic of Togo. He died in the United States on 30th of October 1999. He did not leave a Beneficiary to be reached in such event. This bank account has been under the dormant status for more than three years now without any claim for the fund in our custody having been made. The said account contains the amount of USD$8.5M ( Eight million, five hundred thousand in US$). The plan for you to put claim over this fund as the bona fide Beneficiary to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this money to your account has been put in place by myself and a couple of my key co-wokers, myself being the Foreign Operations Dept. Directives and needed information will be given as soon as you indicate your desire to assist us. It will be worth noting that, as far as you have insiders like us to work with in this very scheme, this is 100% risk free. On conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of the total sum, being your reward for your valued assistance, 5% will go toward the offsetting of any incurable transfer and taxation fees etc. The remaining 65% will be shared between us bankers. We will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account, then we will come to your country for our share. You are required to be physically present here or to engage the services of a local Lawyer. If you can do your part, take your share and keep your mouth shut, then respond immediately, sending your full name, address, private email address and contact phone number, failure to send these details of you requested herein when you respond, will indicate your unwillingness to assist in this regard, and will meet with my silence. Yours faithfully- Mr. Morgan smith _________________________________________________________________Express yourself instantly with MSN Messenger!
