Dear Friend,


I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have never
met before, but need not to worry as I am using the only secured and
confidential medium available to seek for your foreign assistance in a
business. I am contacting you independently of my investigation and no
one is informed of this communication.

I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of $11.3million
immediately to your private account. The money has been here in our
Bank lying dormant for nine good years now without anybody coming for
the claim of it.

I want to release the money to you as the nearest person to our
deceased customer (the account owner) who died a long with his
supposed NEXT OF KIN since August 1997.
The Banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than 11
years, because the money will be recalled to the Bank treasury as
unclaimed fund.

Upon receipt of your reply  indicating your interest in this
transaction, I will send you full details on how the business will be

Please keep this proposal as a top secret and delete if you are not interested.
