FROM THE DESK OF
BANK OF AFRICA PLC
ATTN: Dear Sir/Madam,
I am MOHAMMED SALA, The manager, Bills and Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department BANK OF AFRICA PLC. I am writing this letter to ask for your support and co-operation to carry out this business transaction in my department. We discovered an abandoned sum of $30,000,000.00 (Thirty Million United States Dollars only) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family of a wife and two children in the Sept.11 2001 terrorist attack on America. Since we heard of his death, we have been expecting his next-of-kin to come over and put claims for his money as the heir because we 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. Unfortunately, none of their family member or distant relative has ever appeared to claim the said fund. Upon this discovery, I and other officials in my department have agreed to make business with you and present you as the heir of the fund since no one has come for it nor discovered he maintained an account with our bank, if we don’t move this money out quickly it will be confiscated and send to the government treasury as unclaimed funds.
Due to excessive cost of transfer and tax input by the government, I and the Chief security officer (CSO) of this organization have arranged the money in a security-proof box weighing 75kg This box is been padded with synthetic nylon and to open it you will have to cut the pad before you will meet the button that you will press to open the dial code-lock. There is no way anyone can open the box and be able to close it again because it was padded with machine. Today a friend of mine who is a diplomat disclosed to me that there is a security courier service company that is specialized in sending diplomatic materials and information from one country to another, which also has diplomatic immunity, I have therefore met with the official of the security courier service and concluded shipping arrangement with them, which they will commence as soon as I have your go ahead order. The diplomat who will be bring in this consignment to you is an expert and has been in this line of work for many years now so you have nothing to worry about. After all arrangements, We have agreed that our ratio of sharing will be as stated thus; 40% for you as our foreign partner, 55 % will be for us the officials in my department and 5 % for the settlement of all local and foreign expenses incurred by us and you during the course of this business. Upon the successful completion of this transaction, one of my colleagues and I will come over to your country and mind our share. To this effect, we urge you to immediately register your interest by a return e-mail enclosing your private contact telephone number, fax number, full names and address where you will like the box to be delivered to by the courier.
Please you have to maintain topmost secrecy as it may cause a lot of problems if found out that we are using this way to move money. You are advised not to inform anyone about this until you received the box at your door step. I look forward to receiving your swift response.
