Dear Friend.
Good day to you,
I am Mr James Ali an accountant in the bill and exchange department of the foreign remmittance section of Banque Togolaise De Developpement Lome,Togo in West Africa
I contacted you into this transaction so that you will stand as the next of kin before the bank to enable them to effect the transfer of the fund to your bank account,after the last auditte In my department we discovered an abandoned sum amount of ( 14.4 million US dollars) fourteen million four hundred thunsand US dollars in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers,
Mr J L .GREENBAUM, who was involved in 2001
hamas suicide bombing in pizzeria august 2001 and he died..
Since we got this information about his death, we have been expecting his next of Kin to come over and claim this money because the bank can not release the money unless somebody applies for it, as next of Kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in the banking and financial policies, but fortunately we got this information that he was a victim to this bombing suicide and none of his family know's about this body come's over to claim this money yet.

After discovery that I and a partner in my department now decided to make this business proposal to you so that you work together with me as a foreigner for the bank to release the fun to you as the next of kin or relation to this deceased man for safety and subsequent disbursement
since nobody is coming for the fun and we don't want this money to go into the Bank treasury account as unclaimed fund.
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after Six years the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury account as unclaimed fund. The Bank request for a foreigner as next of kin into this business occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and an indigene cannot stand as next of kin to the deceased family,
upon the conclusion of this transaction.
We agreed that 25% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account,
5% will be set aside for expenses incurred during this transaction and 70 % will be for me and my colleagues.

Thereafter, I and my colleagues will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. To enable the immediate transfer of this fun to you as arranged above, you must apply first to the Bank as the relation or next of kin to the deceased indicating.
Your full Names...................

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or e-mail the text of the application. I Must tell you that the tranaction is risk free and you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the Claim.
Though I decided to contact you as we have products of interest in your part of the world where we can invest our own percentage to avoid peoples awareness as we are civil servants.
With your acceptance and cooperation, we can conclude this operation within seven working days. Please keep this very confidential.
