I am contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a hugh sum of 
money  from a deceased account. Though I know that a transaction of this
magnitude  will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring
you that all   will be well at the end of the day. We decided to contact
you due to the  urgency of this transaction.


We discovered an abandoned sum of US$11,500,000.00 (Eleven Million,
Five  Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in an account that belongs
to one of  our foreign customers who died along with his entire family.
Since his death,  none of his next-of-kin or relations has come forward to
lay claims to this  money as the heir. We cannot release the fund from his
account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the
deceased as indicated in our  Banking guidelines. Upon this discovery, we
now seek your permission to have  you stand as a next of kin to the
deceased as all documentations will   be  carefully worked out by us for
the funds to be released in your favour as the beneficiary's next of kin.

It may interest you to note that we have secured from the probate an order
of  madamus to locate any of deceased  beneficiaries.Please acknowledge
receipt  of this message in acceptance of our mutual business endeavour by
furnishing me  with the following;

   1. Beneficiary name and address.
   2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers.

These requirements will enable us file a letter of claim to the
appropriate  departments for necessary approvals in your favour before the
transfer can be  made. We shall be compensating you with  S$4,000,000.00
(Four Million  united states Dollars) on final conclusion of this project,
while the rest  shall be for us. Your share stays with you while the rest
shall be for us for  investment purposes.

If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me only through my 
confidential email address:  and the private  
phone  number I shall provide in recipient of your response to my
This is  because my official lines are not totally secure lines as they

Please observe this instruction religiously. I send you this mail not
without  a measure of fear as to what the consequences may be, but I know
within me  that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and
riches never come  easy or on a platter of gold.

If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of  the
 trust we have bestowed in you, I await your urgent mail.
