Dear friend, I have a proposal for you, this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will. I am Mr Josephat lulu and I work with a security company (i.e The North Atlantic Security Company Lome Togo). Here in this company existed a dormant account for the past 8 years which belong to an American national, late Mr Morris Thompson who died on Alaska Airlines. When I discovered that there had been no deposits nor withdrawals from this account for this long period, I decided to carry out a system investigation and discovered that non of the family members nor relations of the late person is aware of this account. This is the story in a nutshell. Now I want an account overseas where the company will transfer this funds. Thereafter, I had planned to destroy all related documents for this account. It is a careful network and for the past eleven months I have worked out everything to ensure a hitch-free operation. The amount is not so much at the moment and plus all the accumulated interest the balance in this account stands at-(US$11.5 million US dollars). Now my questions are:- 1. Can you handle this project? 2. Can I give you this trust? 3. What will be your commission? If you can sponsor this transfer. Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. Finally, it is our humble prayer that the information as contained herein be accorded the necessary attention, urgency as well as the secrecy it deserves. I Expect your urgent response if you can handle this project.Please email me for confirmation that you will assist me and i will also appreciate you give me an urgent telephone call for confirmation. I am expecting your urgent response as soon as you receive my message. Respectfully yours, Mr Josephat lulu
