First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, this is by virtue if its nature as being utterly CONFIDENTIAL and TOP SECRET.  Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day.
I have decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction, as I have been reliably informed of your ability to keep secrets in transactions of this nature.
Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you, I am MR CHARLES SEGUN, an accountant with the UNION BANK PLC. I came to know of you in my private search for a reliable and reputable person to handle this confidential transaction which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account requiring maximum confidence.
               THE PROPOSAL
A foreigner, Late Roy Durand , an OilMerchant/ Contractor with the Federal Government of Nigeria, until his death five years ago in an air crash, banked with us here at UNION BANK PLC.and had a closing balance of US$10.5M (Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which the bank now unquestionably expects  to be claimed by any available foreign next-of-kin of the Late beneficiary or alternatively be donated to a discredited trust fund for arms and ammunition at a military war college here in Nigeria.
Fervent efforts are being made by the UNION BANK PLC  to get in touch with any of the Durand family or relatives to no avail. It is because of the perceived possibility of not being able to locate any of Late Roy Durand's next-of-kin (he had no known wife and children) that the management under the influence of our chairman and members of the board of directors,directed that an arrangement be made for the funds to be declared UNCLAIMABLE and subsequently be donated to the Trust Fund for Arms and Ammunition to further enhance  war in Africa and the world in general. In order to avert this negative development, some of my trusted colleagues and I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next-of-kin to Late Roy Durand so that the funds, US$10.5M would be released and paid into your bank account as the beneficiary's next-of-kin. 
All documents and proof that will enable you get this fund will be carefully worked out and more so we are assuring you of a 100% risk free involvement. Your share stays with you while the rest would be for myself and my colleagues for investment purposes in your country.
We have agreed that the funds will be shared thus:-
1. 30% of the money will go to you for acting as the beneficiary of the funds.
2.10% will be set aside for reimbursement to both parties for any incidental expenses that may be incurred in the course of the transfer.
3.60% to us the originators of the transaction.
If this proposal is OK by you and you do not wish to take undue advantage of the trust we hope to bestow on you, then kindly get in touch with me immediately via my private Email ONLY, furnishing me with your most confidential telephone, fax number and exclusive bank particulars so that I can use these information to apply for the release and subsequent transfer of the funds in your favour.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated co-operation.
Yours faithfully,
Do You Yahoo!?
