Attention Please,
This letter might come as a surprise to you especially since we have never met or discuss before. 
Basically, the message might sound strange but it is factual in reality if only you care to know. 
The truth is that I should have notified you first through a more confidential means, (even if it's 
at least to respect your integrity) please accept my humble apologies if I had caught you unawares, 
I frankly do not mean any harm in passing my message.

I have business deal if you want? There is a LARGE amount in US Dollars that is floating in a 
dormant account here in my bank; I will tell you the exact amount when I hear from you. I have 
watched this account for years and I am the only person who knows about this money.  I have taken 
time to investigate this account and to the bank, such Account/ money does not exist because they 
have made the fund a write off debt and none existence. I am local person who is also a worker in 
the same bank, I cannot claim this money so I want to seek your partnership, to present your name 
and the supporting documents will be made available and the funds will be paid to you as the legal 
beneficiary so that you and I will split the money, at least 40% for you and the 60% for me? I will 
have all and every arrangement worked out and we will have a smooth transaction without risk, this 
is my field.
This transaction is very simple, it can only happen in two ways:
(1) By a direct wire transfer from our bank to your bank account in your Country OR (2) By an 
online banking, this is where our affiliate bank in abroad will create an online account in your 
name, the funds will be credited into the online account and details will be given to you so that 
you can have access to the funds via online and you can transfer /withdraw and wire money directly 
into any account of your choice in any part of this world jut by online. With this, the account is 
not monitored and so we are free from tax issues.
However, before any of the above can happens, we must do the processing of the funds. I shall 
prepare an agreement letter and send to you, this MOU will state clearly the terms of this 
transaction and will bid the two of us so that you and I will know what we are getting in terms of 
% at the end of the transaction. This will avoid any argument in future, so it's good that the 
letter state that you get 40% and I get 60% etc.
After we sign the letter, I shall proceed to secure the document in the court, I shall send you 
copy as well while the original copy goes to our bank head office, this document will put in you in 
the right and legal position to receive the money. When the document is submitted to the bank here 
in my country, then they will contact you and process the funds and finally wire to you via any of 
the preferred options. In case you are wondering where I got your email?  Well, we have millions of 
email contacts in our data base so I guess you are lucky that I sent you this message but if I 
don't hear from you after some time, and then I will contact another person
Do ask me any and all questions you have. Please send your phone number so we can talk about this 
if you are interested.
Best regard,
James Ali.
