Dear friend

Good day to you,how is your family and your job?i will like to believe all

is wish is that this mail meet you in good health Amen.

I am Mr christopher francis idah,The Manager for Foreign Remittance Department at AFRICAN INTERNATIONAL BANK(AIB).To me i believe in you and my spirit tells me you are a person with credibility and credibility opens every doors

to success.There is a business I would want you to champion for me,In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of SEVEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED

THOUSAND DOLLARS($7.5 MILLION) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer,who died along with his entire family in November 2002 in an auto crash along LAGOS - BENIN EXPRESS ROAD.

Since we got the information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money, because we cannot release it unless

somebody applies for it as next of kin or relative to the deceased depositor as indicated in our BANK RULES AND REGULATIONS CODE,but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relative died along side with him in the crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relative to the deceased,base on the fact that i don`t want this money to go into the Bank vault as unclaimed money, i decided to make u and i the benefitiary of the money since nobody comes for it.Because the Banking law and guidelines here stipulates that if such money remain unclamed after four years, the money will be transfered into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund.

The request for a foreigner as next of kin and beneficiary in this business is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a citizen of your country,which rule out anybody from an African country to stand as next of kin or a Beneficairy to the deceased unclaimed money,and it will look real if you come forward as the relative to the deceased,because you both bear the same surname.

I have agree that 35% of this money will be for you as my foreign partner,in respect to the provision of your capability to come forward as the next of kin,for the

important role you are going to play to make this transaction a huge success, 10% will be set aside for expenses that may be incured in the course of transfering the money to you through the help of a diplomat,while 55% will be for me.Thereafter I will visit your country for the sharing of the money between me and you according to the percentage indicated above.Therefore to enhance the immediate transfer of the money to you through the CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA DIPLOMATIC OFFICER,WHO IS NOT GOING TO BE AWARE OF THE CONTENT OF WHAT HIS DELIVERY TO YOU IN YOUR COUNTRY.this will be arranged by the management of Africa International Bank,you must apply first to the bank as relative or next of kin to the deceased depositor indicating your name,your private telephone for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted.Upon receipt of your reply,i will send to you by email the Text of the application which you shall recopy,type,sign and send to our bank as the supposed next of kin and beneficiary of the fund.I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is legal both now

and in future, besides i have already done all the underground works that will make it successful before contacting you.

Please do not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.Meanwhile,i will use my executive position and rank in office to

ensure that the fund is approved and transfered to you without difficulties or problem.

Please kindly contact me immediately you receive this mail, so as to confirm your willingness to this transaction.

I don't want this money to be shared among the board of directors because the money has already been arrange to be share among the executives.for honest confirmation please we have to act fast to stop them from sharing it,all they are waiting for now is the go ahead from the chief executive of the bank, and the money will be shared among them,but once you apply and the directors are aware that the deceased still have a relatives that is aware of his money with the bank,the committe will respond to your request immediatelly,so please reply fast.
