Attention:Dear Friend.
With great pleasure I am writing this proposal on behalf of my associates.This is a proposal in context but actually an appeal soliciting for your unreserved assistance in consummating an urgent transaction requiring maximum confidence.
I apologize for any inconveniences. My intention of writing you through email is because I believe it is very confidential.
However, your address was secured through my search in the internet for a reliable and capable hand to handle a transaction of this magnitude; I obtained your profile from ICQ business website and became aware of your credibility and integrity. Due to the sensitivity of this transaction and my commitment as an attorney.
I am Barrister RAWAT AMUDA, personal attorney to Late Mr.William Barnes, a foreigner and Geologist by profession, the owner of Cadbury manufacturing Company here in Burkina Faso, who died since 1999, in an Egypt Air Flight 990, on the 31st October along with other passengers on board.
Before his death, he has a huge sum of $19,500.000.00 (Nineteen million five hundred thousand USD) which no other person know about.
Consequently the management team of the Bank of Africa, has recently issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the investment deposits confiscated by the end of this quarter in their financial calendar of 2008.
I want to first transfer $10,000.000.00 (Ten million USD) from this money into a safe account abroad, after which we will transfer the remaining (9.500M) but I don't know any foreigner, I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local person here.
The request of foreigner as next of Kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkina be cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
This is why I have contacted you to render assistance in repatriating the money and properties left behind by my client, before they will be confiscated or declared unserviceable by this Bank.
As his personal Attorney, I am in possession of all legal documents, which shows the entire transaction between him and the bank of Africa in relation to this fund deposit.
My constraint is to be able to source a foreign partner who is honest and trustworthy individual, that will act as trustee and willing to assist me in this transaction, your share as compensation will be (25%) while (5%) for tax and other miscellaneous expenses.
This transaction is 100% risk free provided you treat it with utmost secrecy and confidentiality. I guarantee you that the entire transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the LAW.
Though this approach appears desperate, I can assure you that whatever questions you would need to ask or any other thing you will need to know regarding this proposal will be adequately answered to give you a clearer understanding of it, so as to arrive at a successful conclusion.
In conclusion, I would like to notice that this transaction is 100% risk free and there is nothing to scare about. I personally know the consequence of this transaction in the corridor of my profession.
Note: Should you be interested, please contact me through my private email ( ) so we can commence all arrangements and I will give you more information on how we would handle this project.
Hoping that you will understand and assist effectively for the success of  this transaction and looking forward to hear from you.
Best Regards,
Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
