Greetings to you,

This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great friends and business partners.My name isMrs. Grace Stewart, the present branch Manager of a bank here in Nigeria West Africa. I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that I can trust youwith the information I am about to reveal to you. LikeI said, I have a transaction that will benefit both of us, as your assistance is required as aforeigner.I use to head the Accounts department in my bank head office, but last December I was asked to take position of a Manager of our branch in Lagos who passedon,so that was how I became the present Manager and discovered a fortune. As I resumed duty, I discovered an account with total sum of $10.5 million that hasnot been operated on for the past 4 years.From my investigation,I found out that this account belongs to one Late Mr. Ziya Bazhayev a Russian big timeOildealer, who unfortunately lost his life in the Air France Concorde on July 26, 2000. You will read more news about the crash on visiting these site;

I have kept a close monitoring of the account since then and nobody has come forward to claim the money as next of kin to the late Mr. Ziya Bazhayev meaningthat no one is aware of the account. I can not directly take out this money without the help of a foreigner and that is why I am contacting you for anassistance to claim the funds and share it with me. As the Manager of my bank branch, I have the power to influence the release of the funds to any foreignerthat comes up as the next of kin to the account, with the correct information concerning the account, which I shall give you.I am seeking your co -operationto present you as the next of kin to the account. There is practically no risk involved, the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement thatwill protect you from any breach of law.If you accept to work with me, I want you to state how you wish us to share the funds in percentage, so that bothparties will be satisfied. Contact me as soon as you receive this message if you feel we can work together,so as to give you more details.

Thanking you in advance and may God bless you.

Please, treat with utmost confidentiality.

I wait your urgent response.

Regards,

Mrs. Grace Stewart.

Why can’t these scammers learn to use punctuation and correct spelling???

I also like the way they start the email off with a privacy policy in case they have sent it to the wrong person!!
