I hope this mail dosen't come as an embarrasment to you;
I am contacting you because I am in urgent need of a foreigners'assistant. I want to transfer to overseas "$36,000,000.00USD"(thirty Six Million United States Dollars) from a Bank in Africa.
I am seeking a reliable and honest person who is somewherefar, like the Asia and who will be capable and fit to provide either an existing bank account or set up a new bank account immediately to receive this fund, or you can help to seek an honest and reliable businessman who can assist us.
I am Dr.Troy Smith an Accountant and Bank Manager.During the course of our auditing I discovered a floating fund in a domiciliary account opened in the bank in 1990 and since 1993 nobody has operated on this account, after going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account who is a foreigner died without any traceable next of kin.Hence the dormant nature of the account and if I do not remit this money out soon, it will be re-channeled into the bank's reserve.
I suggest we start the first transfer with twenty million Dollars [$20,000.000] and upon the successful transfer of the first $20 million without hitches or disappointment from you, I shall re-apply for the remittance of the balance of the fund to your nominated account. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved for a local account here.
I suggest we meet face to face to get acquainted,as the fund in question is a large one before we commence with the transfer. I will also want to know you well and therefore you are expected to send any of your Identification.
Even though the transaction will be based on mutual trust.
I need your full co-operation to make this work fine, as I will use my office to see that the transaction is hitch free and I will destroy all documents relating to the transaction on the conclusion of this business.
Please if this proposal interests you, please make sure you get back to me.
For your efforts and assistance you will be given 30% of the total amount,70% will be for me.
I await your positive reply.

Best regards,
Dr.Troy Smith .
