    Dear Friend,

    I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise. I am the bill and
    exchange manager ADB BANK HERE IN OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA FASO.

    I Hoped that you will not expose or betray this 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 ($25.6)MILLION
    immediately to your account.
    The money has been dormant for years in our Bank here without any body
    coming for it.

    I want to release the money to you as the nearest person to our deceased
    customer(the owner of the account)who died a long with his supposed next of
    kin in an air crash since July 2000.

    I don't want the money to go into our Bank treasury as an abandoned fund. So
    this is the reason why i contacted you, so that we will release the money to
    you as the nearest person to the deceased customer.

    Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete if
    you are not interested.
    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 35% of the above mentioned
    sum if you agree to transact the business with us.

    Thank's and holping to hear from you
