Dear Sir/Madam, I have a profiling amount of 56 Million United States Dollars secured in anoffshore private bank. I am seeking your assistance in securing these funds into a safe account for future investment purposes but requiring maximum confidentiality. This is borne out of the fact that I am still in active service in the Ministry here in Scotland-UK.Upon your positive response to my proposal, I will provideyou with the following information: * How I will introduce you/your company to the holding bank and make you the beneficiary of the money. * Who I am and why I have decided to sought for your assistance. * What percentage of the money I am willing to give you for your assistance. Kindly respond with your private phone and fax numbers for easier and faster communication. Michael Smith
