                                      PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL


I am Dr. Bashy Sisil (FCAA), the chief accountant of African Development Bank (ADB). There is an 
account open in this bank in 1999 and since 2001 nobody has operated on this account again. After 
going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this money out 
urgently it would be forfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is Mr. Morris Thompson, a 
foreigner, Business Man and a miner at Kruger Gold Company, a Geologist by profession and he died 
since 2000.No other person knows this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other 
beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that this company does not know anything 
about this account and the money involved is One hundred and Thirty Six Million United States 
Dollars (US$ 136 Million).  I want us to first transfer US$ 36 Million from this money into your 
safe overseas account before the rest. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money 
cannot be approved to a local bank here, but can only be approved to any foreign account because 
the money is in United States Dollars and the former owner Mr. Morris Thompson is a foreigner too. 
I know that this message will come to you as surprise as we don't know ourselves before. We will 
sign an agreement, but be sure that it is real and a genuine business. You can view the web site 
bellow for more information on our late client.


I only got your contact information from my secretary who operates computer; with believe in God 
that you will never let me down in this business, considering my position as a public servant. You 
are the only person that I have contacted in this business; so please reply urgently so that I will 
inform you the next step to take immediately. Send also your private telephone and fax numbers 
including the full details of your account to be used for the deposit. I want us to meet 
face-to-face and sign a binding agreement to bind us together so that you can receive this money 
into your account where the fund will be safe. And I will fly to your country for withdrawal and 
sharing and other investment.

Meanwhile, I am contacting you because of the need to involve a foreigner with foreign account and 
foreign beneficiary. I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the management is 
ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I 
will give to you as soon as you indicate your sincerity to co-operate with me, and capability to 
handle such amount in strict confidence and trust according to my instruction and advice for our 
mutual benefit because this opportunity may never come again in my life. I need a truthful and God 
fearing person in this business because I don't want to make a mistake so I need your strong 
assurance and trust. With my position in the office I don't want anything that will jeopardize my 
job so I advice that we should make secrecy and confidentiality our primary working condition, 
bearing in mind that I am a public servant. I will also use my position and influence to effect 
legal approvals and onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance forms 
of the ministries and foreign exchange department.

At the conclusion of this business, you will be giving 25% of the total amount, 70% will be for me, 
while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred in the process of the transfer. I 
look forward to your earliest reply.

Yours sincerely,
Dr. Bashy Sisil
