Dear beloved Friend,
Hope you and the family is fine.
Brevity is not my greatest gift, but please i want you to read this letter very carefully and i must apologize for any embarrasment. I beleive you will be of utmost assitance to this information.
You must have heard several incident on suicide bombing; regrettably a wealthy Oil merchant whose family was a victim of this horror in Tal Far seven (7) years ago, invested US$5,000,000 into Shares, of which today has generated a surplus of US$9,700,000 in a reserved account. In a few months time, I will be retiring from active duty after 30 years of civil services. It is my duty to recommend the surplus funds to the Federal Government Treasury as unclaimed deposits.
But, I believe every man/woman has his/her own sorrow which the world knows not. The Bank has just concluded their internal audit last month and some miscreants are trying to manipulate the account of the deceased. This syndicates threaten to slight down my dignity if i fail to release this funds to unknown fellow claiming they are related to the deceased family.
I am conveying this information to you hoping that you are a highly respected personal, considering the fact that I sourced your profile from a human resource profile database in your country. All I need is just your honest cooperation so I can administer some legal position to release the fund to your account. I knew this will sound strange and distrusting in your heart because of the difficulties in doing legitimate businesses through the net today. I don't want you to feel snobbish nor hoity toits to this, because I cannot risk this funds to my account, and I will have tremendous guilt if I let this shysters claim this funds. My heart is geniunely and faithfully desired to use this fund in any form of Charity.
Just name your prize to crown this effort, you can even keep 40% to assure you that I meant no harm or greedy.
If you AGREE with my offer, I advise you re-confirm the following info:
A. Full name/address:
B. Personal Cell/Tel. number:
C. Date of Birth:
D. Present Occupation:
E. BANK NAME/ADRESS for confirmation of A/C No.:
F. Personal Security Number:
The process will commence without delay as I will proceed to fix your name on the Payment schedule instantly to meet the mandate.
Looking forward to your urgent anticipation.
