Attn: Sir/Ma, Firstly, I solicit for your confidence in this transaction. I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive; hence I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction. I am Senator David Mark; I served as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Petroleum, Refinery and Product Marketing. I am writing to solicit for your assistance to secure funds deposited with a security and finance company abroad, the fund in question is a total of US$21 million dollars and was secured from the sales and distribution of crude oil and petroleum products worldwide. The fund was to be transferred via diplomatic means to Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) before I advised the diplomats to withhold the fund on transit. Note: This transaction is risk free and non-obligatory. All documents to enable you claim this fund will be carefully worked out on your names. I will give you 35% of the total funds for your assistance, 10% will stand as incidental expenses while the remaining 55% will be used for investments in your country under your noble care. More importantly, due to the nature of this transaction and the total funds involved, you’re advised not to discussion it with any person for security reasons. You should endeavor to keep this transaction highly confidential, we do not need third party, and we will be communicating through the email and telephone. YOUR URGENT RESPONSE WILL BE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED. YOURS FAITHFULLY, SENATOR. DAVIED MARK SENATE PRESIDENT
