Dear Friend,
First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, I am Mr Sylla Tahirou auditor General.
This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly Confidential and top secret. However I was asked to audit the bank and there I came across of sum amount been unclaim that belong to one of the bank customer Dr George Brumley
During the above mentioned process, I discovered the abandoned sum of US$10.5M (Ten million five hundred thousand US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in a plane crash that happened in Kenya, East Africa.
Since we got information about his death, which the bank have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because the bank cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash.
Please I want you to visit the website below for more information about the Plane Crash:
It is therefore upon this discovery that I send this business proposal to you so that the fund can be release to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and the bank don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
I agree that 50% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account where the fund will be transfer, and 50% would be for me and there after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated. Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased.
Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send to you by email the text of the application to fill and send to the bank. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free risk and this transaction will only take us 14 banking days because as a banker, I know what to do and move the fund into your account without any delay and you should not entertain any atom of fear.
You should contact me as soon as you receive this letter so that I can send to you the text of the application.
Yours faithful.
Mr Sylla Tahirou
Auditor General,
