Dear Partner, Salam,
This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it as  unserious could come into your mind but please consider it a divine wish and  accept it with a deep sense of humility, I am the manager of bill and exchange at the Foriegn Remittance Department of
 African Development Bank,  Burkina Faso-West Africa, In my department we discovered an abandoned sum  of US$10M (Ten million US dolloars) in an account that belongs to one of our
 foriegn customer who died along with his entire family in a plane crash.
 Since we got information about his death, we have
 been expecting his next of  kin to come over and claim his money because we
 cannot release it unless  some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as
 indicated in our banking guidlines and laws but unfortunately we learnt that
 all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the  plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
 It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other
 officials in my  department now decided to make this business
 proposal to you and release the  money to you as the next of kin or relation to the
 deceased for safety and  subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for
 it and we don't want this  money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill
 because the banking law  states that, if such fund remain unclaimed for many
 year's and then, the  fund will be transfer into the bank treasury as
 unclaimed bill.
 I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a
 foreign partner, in  respect to the provision of a foriegn account, and
 60% would be for  me,while 10% will be for expenses (if there is any)
 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
 indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone
 and fax number for easy and effective communication and location wherein the
 money will be remitted.
 Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send to you
 by fax or 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 free risk and you should keep this
 transaction (TOP SECRET) and do not let the bank notice that, I contacted
 you to claim this fund but I will be giving you all
 information from the  bank until the fund is transfered into your account.
 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. You  should not entertain any atom of fear as all
 required arrangements have been  made for the transfer.
 You should contact me as soon as you receive this
 Yours faithfully.
 Bill & Exchange Manager, ( A.D.B.)
