Attn: Sir/Madam I am Emeka Chidi (Mr.), the Auditor General, All Standard Securities Limited. In the course of my auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account which was opened in 1990 belonging to a dead foreigner( Mr. David Angell), a national of your country who died in the world trade center as victims of the September 11, 2001 Incident that befall the united state of America, the security company is still unrelenting in its bid to contact any of the relatives to claim this money, you can confirm through this site ://www.september11victims.com/september11Victims/victims_list.htm I have personally on my own made several efforts to track his last name over the internet to locate any member of his family hence I got in contact with you. I want to transfer the sum of US$10.6M (10 Million, Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) from All Standard Securities Limited in his account overseas. I am therefore writing to ask you that you quietly partner with me and providing an account or set up a new one that will serve the purpose of receiving this fund. Even an empty account can also serve as long as you prove to be honest to me till the end of the transaction. I hope you will never let me down. After going through the deceased records and files, I discovered that: (1) No one has operated this account since 2003; (2) He died without a heir; hence the money has been floating. (3) No other person knows about this account and there was no known beneficiary. And if I do not remit this money urgently, it would be forfeited federal authorities here. This money can only be approved to you legally after securing all the necessary documents from the courts here showing you as the next of kin. Hence I am contacting you. I will require your urgent reply so that I give you the next step. Kindly forward your telephone number and other relevant contact information. I am ready to give you 40% for your assistance and partnership with me. I look forward to your prompt. Best Regards, Emeka Chidi (Mr.) Note: It is very important that you reach me via my confidential email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
