Dear Friend,
I am MR. Antonio Walter, credit officer of Banca Di Firenze . I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.
In May, 2004,a Russian property consultant and importer of floor ties, Mr Vyacheslav Kudrin made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$35,000,000.00 (Thirty five Million United States Dollars only) in my branch. It was to our utter surprise that we heard of the death of his wife, only Son and himself on July 9, 2006 in Airbus A-310 operated by Russian airline S7 that crashed on landing at Irkutsk airport which at least 122 people died  See website below:
The said Funds is still in my bank with nobody coming for it so I made investigation and discovered that Mr Vyacheslav Kudrin did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$35,000,000.00 is still in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it as his only brother Vyacheslav Lavrov from my investigation died of Leukaemia six months ago at the age of 84
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you to stand in as the next of kin or business partner to Mr Vyacheslav Kudrin so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address, phone and fax numbers so that my attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin or business partner.
 I have two of my colleagues who are top officials of the bank involved in this transaction. Your role in the transaction is to send an application for claim of the funds to our bank. Then, as top officials of the bank, we shall work behind-the-scene to make sure that your application is approved by the management of the bank, and the funds transferred to your nominated bank account.
Please note that there is no iota of risks at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done legitimately and with our positions as top officials of the bank, we would ensure a successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately to my email box.
Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication.
Please kindly observe utmost CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECRECY in this transaction, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for the whole of us.
I look forward to your prompt response. After going through my proposal respond back to me with this my private email address f you are intrested : for security reasons.
Thanks and regards.
Mr. Antonio Walter.
