RE: TRANSFER OF 152,000,000.00 MILLION DOLLARS TO YOUR ACCOUNT. I feel quite safe dealing with you in this important business though, this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused; I choose to reach you through it because it still remains the fastest medium of communication. However, this correspondence is unofficial and private, and it should be treated as such.
At first I will like to assure you that this transaction is 100% risk and trouble free to both parties.
IN ORDER TO TRANSFER OUT (ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY TWO MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS) FROM OUR BANK HERE IN
I WANT TO TRANSFER THIS MONEY INTO A SAFE FOREIGN ACCOUNT ABROAD BUT I DON'T KNOW ANY FOREIGNER WHOM I CAN
TRUST, I KNOW THAT THIS MESSAGE WILL COME TO YOU AS A SURPRISE AS WE DON'T KNOW OURSELVES BEFORE, BUT BE SURE THAT IT IS REAL AND A GENUINE BUSINESS. I CONTACT YOU BELIEVING THAT YOU WILL NOT LET ME DOWN ONCE THE FUND GOES INTO YOUR ACCOUNT.
FURTHER CORRESPONDENCE SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO
MY PRIVATE EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me hear from you URGENTLY for more details.
