Greetings,
Naturally, this letter will come to you as a surprise since we have not met, permit me however. It is with deep sense of honor and respect that I humbly make this appeal to you with the understanding that any fact/s or opinion/s expressed in this letter is given in confidence and solely for your personal information and use. I am Afraid many things are going on now in the internet which is the only way I think I can get this issue solved but If it does not interest you, disregard the mail but if it makes sense to you, I open my arms wide to do business with you.
I am Mr. Patrick Maguire Goss, I am the Director of First National Bank of South Africa (FNB), I got your details  from the business network here in South Africa, and I am assured that you are very capable and honest to transact this business with me.
Few yrs.’ ago, I used an unclaimed fund {$100 million USD} whose owner has died since 14yrs ago and no one has come to claim the money. I secretly invest the fund in a high interest program in the Swiss bank, it ran for 7 yrs and I made a profit of $10million USD. I have stopped the program and have returned the capital back to our bank, now it’s this $10 million USD profit I made which is in an escrow account in our bank, but I will like us to pull the interest I made from the investment and transfer it out of South Africa to your country. All I have to do is to name you as the beneficiary and have it transferred to any bank account of your choice.
I don't know who to contact, that is why I contacted you today, I will need you to partner with me and provide  an account where I can wire transfer this fund and as soon as you have received it in your bank account, I will fly over to meet you. I will give you 40% of the money for your help and I will take 60% too. This is 100% risk free as I legitimately acquired the fund.
 
If you are interested in this transaction, please do not hesitate to get back to me ASAP.
 
Thank you,
Mr. Patrick Maguire Goss

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
