Dear Friend,
I am DR FRANCIS ADAMS,the Financial Controller in charge of Auditing and Accounting section of ECOBANK, Lome-Togo in West Africa,with due respect and regards,I write to solicit your assistance and collaboration in actualizing a business/ financial transaction.  During an investigation and auditing in our bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person who died in 21st April 2000 in a plane crash. The fund has been dormant in his account under our custody without any claim of the fund either from his family or relation before our  discovery to this development. Our financial policy stipulates that if a current account is not operated for more than 5 years, the proceed of that account is confiscated and taken over by the bank.
As it may interest you to know, your contact was obtained in the Internet  as I was going through some web-pages in search of the relation of my late customer.I was divinely and spiritually motivated to contact you prior to his death. The amount is large, accepted, but I have the feeling that  you can conveniently handle it without any problem.The said amount was USD$14m (Fourteen million, United States Dollars) My late customer died (without a will) leaving no authority to a next of KIN, thereby making his fund valuable to claim by any person with a documentary evidence or proof as the next of KIN. Personally, I kept this information after the  discovery secret between myself. I also smartly audited the account to smooth my purpose for a future plan. This plan is now suitable for execution as I have done all the spade work against future findings. 
Meanwhile all the whole arrangement and necessary approvals to put claim over this fund as the bona-fide next of kin to the deceased, has been gotten and put in place. My immediate requirement is to have a willing and cooperative foreign partner who will stand as the next of kin and this money will be transferred into his/her account. Directives and needed documents  or information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist me in actualizing this great plan. This is a golden opportunity to benefit yourself and indirectly make our living in this world worth the while.
Now my questions are:-
1. Can you handle this project?
2. Can I give you this trust?
3. Can you sponsor this project? If so, What will be your commission?
Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible.
I personally will be monitoring the transaction and situation here in the bank until you confirm the eventual transfer of the money in your account. Other information will be sent to you when I hear from you.I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating your wish in this deal. For the security of this business send all mails in this box
