Dear Sir,
I am pleased to write and introduce myself as the above director in charge of records and accounts of this banking institution.
My reason of writing this letter to you is in connection with a very lucrative business at hand which i believe that you might be interested in doing with me. I write without the least intention of bringing any embarrassments to you, this is no joke so please treat every line of it with utmost seriousness. Trusting in your good intention to elevate your social standard ,i therefore ask you to read my letter very carefully before throwing it into the dust bin or replying to me.
Firstly, I like to solicit your confidentiality for a nondisclosure of any part of the contents of this letter which if you do will automatically ruins all our efforts to achieve success . I am assuring you that I have good faith in this business and will be of mutual benefit to both of us as long as we maintain strict confidentiality of the business and do not develop ideas of dishonesty towards each other when money is on the table.
i am writing this letter to ask for your favor to assist me to carry out a business venture with my good self. I work in a very sensitive department of the above bank where I watch peoples banking records and account on a daily basis.  In my line of duty, i have been watching a very huge sums of money which have been lying dormant since the year 2000 against banking laws .the sum is (US$28m .("Twenty Eight Million United State Dollars ),this amount is in our bank's vault; money that once belong to one Asia American minerals business dealer who was assassinated along with his wife in their hotel suite at Katanga in the democratic republic of Congo where he and his wife were on a business trip to buy diamonds from the local rebel traders.
The dead couples does not seem to have any known family left behind to claim their money under this circumstance. they had lived in Africa for 23 years; they may have lost their parental background contact and family connections.
Since we heard of his death, we have been expecting a next-of-kin to come over to put forward his/her claims as the beneficiary to the deceased man's funds. however, this has not happened and no one has since come forward or even wrote a letter to us to lay claim on the millions laying idle in our bank without any identified living owner and this fund by law should be soon transferred to the central bank for the use of government, unless someone apply officially to claim this sum as the next-of-kin .
I am willing to give 30% to the foreign partner and additional 10% for all his minor expenses with your lawyer who shall by law represent you in signing all documents during the processing of the said amount to your bank account. take note that while the transfer will be in progress, we cannot take out a single cent from that amount or authorize the bank to pay any person from the said amount until the full transfer has been done and proceeds sent directly to your nominated bank account. 

 You shall therefore have to find the means to settle your bills with your lawyer until you receive the money. I hope that this will be viewed in the context of a fair deal agreeable to both of us in the business.
Please, indicate your interest to be my partner in this business if you will, in your reply to this letter, i will then send you a text of application letter to apply as the legal next of kin of this money; a text that you will fill in the blanks and submit to the appropriate banking departments of the above bank for necessary commencement of this transaction in an email address of the bank that I will sent to you.

Any question paper that the bank shall send to you must be forwarded to me immediately so that I can fill it my selves to avoid mistakes.
I look forward to receiving your prompt response and thanks for your cooperation.
Best regard,
Malik Abu
