FROM THE DESK OF DR IBRAHIM ABU BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK (ADB) WEST AFRICA PHONE: 00226-78806779. DEAR FRIEND, CONFIDENTIALI know that this mail will come to you as a big surprise; I am the bill and exchange manager in African development bank. I hoped that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that i am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our both families.
in my department i discovered an abandoned sum of 30.5m us dollars in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (MR.ANDREAS SCHRANNER FROM MUNICH, GERMANY), who died along with his entire family in monday,31 july,2000, in a plane crash. for more information visit this site below: ttp://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm
I need your urgent assistance in transferring the mentioned sum immediately to your account, the money has been dormant for years in our bank here without any body coming for the claim, i don't want the money to go into our bank treasury as an abandoned or unclaimed fund. so this is the reason why i contacted you, so that we can release the money to you as the nearest person to the deceased customer.
please i will like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete if you are not interested and if you are interested reply and call me for my urgent attention, upon receipt of your reply, i will send you full details on how the business will be executed and also note that you will have 30% of the above mentioned sum,if you agree to transact the business with me and 10% will be for any expenses that will occur during or after this transfer why I will have 60% as my own share.
