Dear Friend,

The purpose of my writing to you is because I am searching for a
foreign business partner who is in a position to assist me with my urgent
business proposal, as time is not on my side. A partner, who understands
what confidentiality, means and who has the necessary facilities I require
in embarking on this important venture. I decided to contact you through
email as it has remained the only possible means I consider safe to
contact you. I apologize if this is not suitable to you.

We want to transfer to abroad $US16.5m (Sixteen Million Five Hundred
Thousand United States Dollars) from A Security Company, Mega Trust
Financial & Securities SA., Spain Branch, situated in the above location in
Spain. I am contacting you in a non-official capacity. To provide either
an existing bank Account Or to set up a new bank account immediately to
receive this money, even an empty account can serve to receive this
money as long as you will remain honest to the transaction.

We will Start the first Transfer with Six Million U.S.Dollars
[$6,000.000.00] upon successful Transfer without any disappointment
from your side, we shall re-apply for the Transfer of the remaining Ten
Million United States Dollars [$10, 500.000.00]

I am , an Accountant, with Mega Trust Financial & Security Company
SA, Spain. During the Course of Our Auditing, I discovered a floating fund
in an account opened with the Security Company in 1990 and since 1993
nobody has operated on this account again. After going through some old
files in the records, I discovered that the owner of the account died
without an [Heir], Hence the money has been floating and if I do not remit
this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing to the Spanish

Attached Message
I am contacting you as a foreigner because this money can only be
approved to a foreigner with a valid International Passport, Drivers License
and foreign account because the money is in US Dollars and the former owner
of the account Mr. Robert Hendrickson is a foreigner. I am revealing all this
to you with the belief that you will never let me down in this business. For
your active participation, I have two options of compensating you.

Firstly you can choose to have 25% of the total money for your
assistance or you can go into partnership with me for the proper and
profitable investment of the entire money in your country in any lucrative
business you will advise me of. Of course, the investment must be under your
direct management and supervision. As soon as the money has been transferred
into your account, I shall come to your country and meet you face to face to
work out the modalities of the investments.

Please notify me of your choice in your reply. I have also set aside 5%
of the total sum $16.5M for all kinds of expenses that may come our way in
the process of this transaction. Please note that this 5% for expenses
is not with me at the moment but shall be deducted from the money as soon
as you have received it in your account. Be informed that this transaction
is risk free as all modalities have been put in place for a hitch free

To commence this transaction, I require you to immediately indicate
your interest by a return e-mail to the below email address and enclose the
following: your full name and address, your private telephone and fax
number your Age and occupation I will discuss with you in details when
