From: Barr. Wilson Kudu (ESQ) Senior Advocate of the Cabinet Ouagadougou-Burkina Faso West Africa. Dear Friend, With due respect, I know this mail will come to you as a surprise. I am Wilson Kudu, the principle of FK AT LAW FIRM. I hope you will not expose or betray the trust and confident that I am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our both families. I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of $20.5 million immediately to your account. The money has been dormant for years in late Dr. Eric Morganâs account here in my country without any body coming for it. I want to release the money to you as the nearest person to my late client who died a long with his supposed next of kin in the event of terrorist attack on 11th September 2001 World Trade Center. The said deceased was one of the best clients in my Firm so therefore, I don't want the money to go into Bank Treasury as an abandoned fund according to the bank protocols guiding inheritance fund here because I'm the only person in position now to declare whom to claim the money. Upon receipt of your reply, I will send you full details on how the Business will be executed and also note that you will have 40% of the above mentioned sum if you agree to transact the business with me.
