From the desk of: Dr.Wilson owen
Auditor General of Leading Bank
Here in Daker Senegal
                       My Dear,
              FOR YOUR ATTENTION ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am Dr.Wilson  owen Auditor General of this Bank Daker Senegal I am writing following an oppurtunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of USD$25.5 Million United States Dorlars in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr. Morris Thompson an American who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only daughte .
      And Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relatves to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. Unfortunately I learnt that his supposed next of kin being his only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and two other officials in this department now decided to make business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safe keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don’t want this money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed bill.
The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that  if such money remained after six years the money will be transferred into banking treasury as unclaimed funds. We will agree on the % of the money  that will be for you as foreign partner, after I and you will deliberate on the percentage. And I will visit your country for the disbursement according to the percentages indicated above once this money gets into your account. Please be honest to me and trust is our watchword in this transaction. and I will like to invest my own share into estate and landed properties and industrial firm.
Note this transaction is confidential and risk free. As soon as you receive this mail you should contact me immediately. Please note that all necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you has been finalised. We will discuss much in details when I do receive your response. Please if you are interested in this project contact me for further directives on my e-mail
