Sir,It is a pleasure writing you and I got your email address from a directory I searched during my business trip to Europe. Though I have not met you but look forward to, I need a trustworthy person that I can entrust the sum of forty five million dollars because of the political climate in my part of the world. I reside presently in Lome. I am an old man and due for retirement at any moment from now after putting many years in civil service as Director of Ministerial Contracts Evaluation and Implementation, in the presidency of my country. During this past years in the office, I was able to secure huge amount of money from over-invoiced Government Contract Bills and oil sale, through the advantage of my position in the office. Please do not consider this transaction a scam because of the unusual way of contacting you, but I can assure you of a huge benefit if you work with me honestly in relation to this transaction. I have been deliberating on how to invest this fund abroad in a confidential manner and in view of this therefore, I am soliciting your confidence, support and assistance as my partner to claim this fund for investment purpose. I would be glad to have a quick reply from you. Please send your contact names, telephone and fax number in your reply and I will give you more details when I hear from you. Please reply me with your details to; email@example.com
Sincerely, Harry NdokEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org
