Very Urgent Attention, 
With due honor and respect, I introduce myself to you for a better
 LIMITED. Your contact is courtesy of Business online network via Internet
 as I decided to contact you for this beneficial transaction that is
 100% risk free.

During auditing, verifications/investigations in our bank at the end of
 last fiscal (financial) year, I discovered the sum of (US$20M}TWENTY
 MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS in a dormant account belonging to MR
 CHARLES NEMAN , who died along with his family in the November 5th,2003
 plane crash in Abidjan west Africa. Our investigations revealed no survival
 or NEXT OF KIN/RELATIONS for claims as we have long been expecting
 someone to forward applications for claims as it applies to our banking
  regulations. Information / verifications from reliable sources confirmed
 that his supposed “NEXT OF KINS” died with him in the crash. Hence
 this for your perusals.

However, I kept this information (SECRET) confidential within my
 jurisdiction to enable us submit claims and transfer this fund through
 trustworthy person whom we shall present to our bank as the BONAFIDE “NEXT
 OF KIN” to the deceased. 

We intend to credit this fund into any of your nominated (designated)
 offshore bank account for investments.Meanwhile, all domestic
 arrangements for claims has been put in place awaiting your acceptance to
 participate. I will give you directives and all needed   information as soon
 as I receive your positive response.

Kindly understand that we could not carry out this on our own as based
 on the simple facts that we are civil servants and secluded from
 operating foreign account and too, it will raise eyebrows on our side in
 terms of transfer being staff of the bank. Moreover, this fund belongs to a
 foreigner and demands same as next of kin to claim it. Hence your
 contact for   successful operation. My colleagues and I has resolved to
 offering you 20% of the total sum as commission, We will invest 75% of our
 share in your country provided it is profit oriented. 5% of the total
 fund will be set aside to re-emburse all expenses to be incurred in the
 course of  running this transaction such as telephone and other minor
 expenses. I am assuring  you of a smooth and successful transaction
 provided you display maturity and observe confidentiality.

And it will interest you to know that the Reserve Bank(Apex) will
 approve credit of this fund into your account as contract payment to abstain
 you from all queries regarding the source (originality) of this fund
 and will provide you (beneficiary) with contractual (data) details to
 certify your bank or  government if the need arises. Therefore, be kind
 to clarify the following for my consideration:

1. Can your account accommodate this fund in your local bank without
 government intervention or do you have an account outside your country
 where you may consider safe for this fund ?.

2. What are taxation in your country like as I desire a low/free tax

3. What are the interest rates on long/short term fixed deposit in your
 local banks?.
