Salam, I am pleased to introduce a business opportunity to transfer to your overseas account the sum of($ 7.3 USD) Seven million Three hundred thousand United States Dollars from one of the Prime Banks here in Dakar Senegal. I am Mr.Desmond Koffi (Bsc,Msc) the Auditor General of one of the prime banks here in Dakar Senegal , during the course of our auditing , I discovered a floating funds in an account opened in our bank since 1982 and till date no body has operated on the account and after going through old files in the records, I discovered that the owner of the account died long ago in a plane crash along with his family without leaving a[Heir/WILL], hence the floating of the funds and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. Therefore ,with a personal conviction of trust and confidence ,I wish to contact you as a foreigner, to stand as a relative , thus I can work out the release of the funds , No other person in the office knows about the account , please be assured of the risk free , I'm the one that will work it out , all I need is your cooperation because the account content can not be approved to an indigen here as his next of kin . At the conclusion of this project , I propose a joint nvestment of an equal partnership to you or we may share it in a ratio of 45% for you and 55% for me. One more thing please; I beg you don't consider this against moral justification , they are many other aspects of life we may contribute with this funds to help the less privileged and the needy in a society than having it shared as an unclaimed bill among Government PLEASE . I look forward to your earliest response Yours Truly Mr. Desmond Koffi
