  1. FROM THE DESK OF MR.UPESEKU AHMED.
    AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING MANAGER,
    INTERNATIONAL BANK OF AFRICA,
    OUAGADOUGOU-BURKINA FASO,
    WEST AFRICA.

    DEAR FRIEND,

    I AM MR.UPESEKU AHMED, THE AUDITTING MANAGER OF INTERNATIONAL BANK
    OF AFRICA BURKINA FASO.DURING MY INVESTIGATION AND AUDITTING IN THIS
    BANK, I CAME ACROSS A VERY HUGE SUM OF MONEY BELONGING TO OUR DECEASED
    CUSTOMER WHO DIED ON 31ST JULY 2000 IN A PLANE CRASH AND THE FUND HAS
    BEEN DORMANT IN HIS ACCOUNT WITH THIS BANK WITHOUT ANY CLAIM OF THE
    FUND IN OUR CUSTODY EITHER FROM HIS FAMILY OR RELATION BEFORE MY
    DISCOVERY TO THIS ISSUE.THE SAID AMOUNT WAS U.S$25,700, 000. (TWENTY
    FIVE MILLON SEVEN HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS).

    MEANWHILE ALL THE WHOLE ARRANGEMENT TO PUT CLAIM OVER THIS FUND AS
    THE BONAFIDE NEXT OF KIN TO THE DECEASED, GET THE REQUIRED APPROVAL
    AND TRANSFER THIS MONEY TO A FOREIGN ACCOUNT HAS BEEN PUT IN PLACE.
    THE TRANSFER OF THIS FUND WILL REQUIRE A SECOND PARTY OR FELLOW WHO
    WILL FORWARD CLAIM AS THE NEXT OF KIN TO THE BANK AND ALSO PRESENT A
    FOREIGN ACCOUNT WHERE THE FUND WILL BE RE-TRANSFERRED AFTER PAYMENT
    APPROVAL IS GRANTED.

    THE BANKING LAW AND GUIDLING HERE STIPULATES THAT
    IF SUCH FUND REMAINED UNCLAIMED AFTER TEN YEARS IT WILL BE TRANSFERED
    INTO THE BANK TREASURY AS UNCLAIMED FUND.THE REQUEST OF FOREIGNER AS
    NEXT OF KIN IN THIS BUSINESS IS OCCASSIONED BY THE FACT THAT THE
    CUSTOMER WAS A FOREIGNER AND A BURKINABE CANNOT STAND AS NEXT OF KIN
    TO A FOREIGNER.

    MOREOVER, I WILL NOT FAIL TO INFORM YOU THAT THIS TRANSACTION IS 100%
    RISK FREE. AND ON SMOOTH CONCLUSION OF THIS TRANSACTION, YOU WILL BE
    ENTITLED TO 40% OF THE TOTAL SUM AS GRATIFICATION, WHILE 10% WILL BE
    SET ASIDE TO TAKE CARE OF EXPENSES THAT MAY ARISE DURING THE TIME OF
    TRANSFER AND ALSO TELEPHONE BILLS, WHILE 50% WILL BE FOR ME.I WILL BE
    MONITORING THE WHOLE TRANSACTION HERE IN THIS BANK UNTIL YOU CONFIRM
    THE TOTAL FUND IN YOUR ACCOUNT AND I WILL COME OVER TO YOUR COUNTRY
    FOR MY OWN SHARE OF THE FUND.

    PLEASE CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY VIA MY
    DETAILS STATED BELOW FOR MORE CLARIFICATIONS.I AM URGENTLY WAITING FOR
    YOUR REPLY.

    YOUR'S FAITHFULLY,
    MR.UPESEKU AHMED
     
  2. Or this one:-
    Hello

    I am Dr Raymond Keith Dobbs ,a New Zealand citizen based in Kuala
    Lumpur, Malaysia .

    Some years back,I invested some amount of money with an investor in Ontario ,
    Canada and it has yeilded some reasonable interest and capitalwhich is due
    payment.

    I wanted the Due-funds transferred to my account by Swift, but the issuing
    company/Investor said that they cannot transfer more than Five
    Thousand Dollars to any bank account outside North America/south America
    within one month(30days).

    I have only received the sum $5,000usd out of millions of dollars to my account
    few days ago ,but I was told to provide an Account in Canada,Mexico or United
    States of America to enable the funds transferred.

    Meanwhile,I have tried to open an account with Bank-One in Texas and Washington
    Mutual in California in United States but I need to be physically presence to
    sign the mandate.I must confess that this is not possible now because I am
    medically down to make such a long distance trip.

    I am in a need of seeking your assistance on this matter, if you could help
    receive the funds and forward to me.

    Sincerely,you are not going to face any risk in rendering assistance,orspend any
    money or demand anything from you.

    I can also advise the investor to make payment via installment if you are
    not comfortable having the whole funds transferred to your account.

    AGAIN,PLEASE TAKE NOTE THAN YOU ARE NOT SPENDING ANY MONEY AND AM OFFERING YOU
    10% ON THE AMOUNT RECEIVE AND WE CAN NEGOTIATE ON YOUR PERCENTAGE.

    Once i received your response,I will send you the contact details of the
    investor in Canada so that can open talk with him.All i need is your
    sincerity and just be honest with me.

    Looking forward to hear from you.

    Yours Truely,
    Dr Raymond Keith Dobbs
