Good Day,

How are you and your family?. I am Engr Connor Salzbury and I am the data base administrator of a 
bank which I am yet to disclose to you until you fully indicate your interest in this business 
proposal which I am relating to you because of security reason as I am a staff in the same bank.

I know you will be surprised to get a message from me but never mind because the only thing that 
brought you to me is business assistance which I believe you will really give a taught if I give 
you the detail.

I have worked in this bank for 10 years as the database administrator and my job is to create users 
and also upgrade and manage indexes of the database of this bank.
The bank itself is going into distress and I know that because of my vital position as the database 
administrator and it is expected that with this global recession, the bank may loose its ground any 
moment from now.

During my last maintenance of the database, as I was backing up the files in the database, an 
account popped out which happens to have popped out due to the account has become dormant and there 
is a program that I created in the database that is responsible for extracting any account that has 
not been functional for over a period of 3 years and the program automatically removes values from 
the user making the account dormant and inactive.

I immediately accessed the files of the account registration and found out the owner did not 
administer any next of kin or beneficiary to the account opening documents that was imputed in his 
account folder.

I then ran a search and got his contact address in Tanzania and I made contacts to that address and 
was notified that the house which was rented by the account owner has been sold over 2 years ago 
and was duely informed but the landlord of the house that the person I was asking about had died 
some years ago.

His name is Mr. Alan Williams and his bank account has a balance of US$19, 500 000 00 ( nineteen 
million, five hundred thousand U.S Dollar).

I want you to be well informed that no one in the bank know about this because immediately I got 
the full information about his death, I encrypted his account and hid it one of the folder in the 
database where no one could find it because

I know that if this information gets first to one of the officials of the bank, they will 
immediately grab this money and get rich.
As the database administrator of the bank, I have full access to all the files and folders in the 
database of the bank and I have the privilege of inputting ,editing and deleting files and 
information in the database and I can put your name as the next of kin so that we can claim this 
money instantly without any problem because it will be clear to everybody in the bank and even the 
whole world that the late owner of the account made you his next of kin because it will be in the 
banks database and nobody will ever get into trouble.

I can? do it by myself because I am the database administrator and it will never work if I am 
directly involved and also I need a foreigner for this to happen.

I have everything planned out and if you are willing to assist me, email me back so that I will 
give you my private telephone number so that we will discuss in more detail and introduce ourselves 
fully to each other.

Thank you for taking your time to read this message and I will give you my direct telephone number 
immediately I get your response.

Have a wonderful day.

With much respect and regard,

Engr. Connor Salzbury
