My name is Donald Van.I work in the audit dept where I serve 
as a senior account officer to numerous customers. One of the 
whom I worked as his personal account officer lost his 
family in an 
automobile accident. He was lucky to survive, and came to 
this country 
with his wealth intact. Unfortunately he died in 2003.
Because this man was good to me when he was alive, I took it upon 
myself to his country last month while i was on my Annual Leave, to see 
if I could locate any of his close relations . On reaching there I 
discovered that his only surviving Uncle died a few months back from 
the september 11 terrorist attack, at the world trade center that kill 
many people.

Now there are two things I could do with regards to the 
dead mans money. First,as his accounts officer, I could formally notify 
the bank 
authorities that the man is dead and has no next of kin. In 
this case 
the money would be forfeited to the government after some 
time. Another 
thing I can do is to arrange for someone else, a 
foreigner, to act as 
the next of kin to the late man so that he will 
claim the money.

I want you to be my partner. All you would have to do 
is act as the next of kin of the dead man and the whole money in the 
account will be 
transferred to your account. As the accounts officer 
to the late man, I 
have all the necessary documents that you will 
require to claim the 
money in the account. 

It is true that the 
actual amount involved is 26M USD but all I want to do first is to move 
out about 11M USD from the principal into a safe foreigners account 
abroad, After the first transaction is successfully done, and I am sure 
you kept the money safely without cheating me out of it all, we shall 
apply for the rest of the funds.

Reach me immediately by mail so that 
I can give you 

further etails.Also provide me with your direct 
tel/fax to reach you. 
Your share will be 30%, My own share will be 
69%, We shall keep 
1% for the expenses. 
Yours truly
