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

PROPOSITION; I discovered an abundant sum of $11.5M (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. I 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, I 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 me for the funds $11.5M(Eleven Million Five Hundred
thousand United states Dollars) to be released in your favour as the
beneficiary's next of kin. It may interest you to note that I have
secured from the probate an order of madamus to locate any of deceased

Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of my mutual
business Endeavour by furnishing me with the following;

1. Your Full Names
2. Direct Telephone and Fax numbers.

These requirements will enable me file a letter of claim to the
appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favour before
the transfer can be made. I shall be compensating you with $4.6 Million
Dollars on final conclusion of this project, while the rest $6.9Million
shall be for me. Your share stays with you while the rest shall be for
me for investment purposes in your country.

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