Good evening my beloved Regina Johnson.
Thanks a lot for your kind response. How are you doing today I hope this mail meets you in good time? Dear. I have been expecting your mail thanks God you replied I’m glad you accepted to help me from the bottom of your heart may God bless you. After praying I was convince in my heart that you will be a good person, and that is why I have the full courage to contact you,
Please help me. What I need is an account where my money will be transferred into, so that I will come over to your country to start making the use of the money, because presently I don't have any access to withdraw money from the total money $7.5 Million Dollars because my late father deposited the money into ESCROW ACCOUNT which can not be touched unless the total money is transferred in foreign bank account oversea before I will have access to start making the use of the money, or I must be at age of 28 years old before withdrawing the fund myself.
Dear, I contacted you to be my foreign partner to claim this money my late father deposited in ESCROW ACCOUNT to your designated bank account to enable me come over to your country to stay with you, and continue my Medical Doctoring school, while you look for a good lucrative business where my money will be invested into. I will offer you 15% percent from the total money for your kind effort.
I have been going to the bank severally asking them to allow me withdraw some money for my management, but the bank board management refused to allow me to have access due to the agreement my late father reached with their bank when he deposited the fund .
The bank official insisted that I must provide a trust foreign partner whom will stand on my behalf to claim the money, that is the reason why I contacted you to help me claim the money from the bank to enable me have access immediately I came to your place.
I will go to the bank to request information that will be needed to execute the transfer to your bank account.  May God almighty bless you?
I will be waiting for your kind response. Remain blessed.
Best regards
Yours sincerely
Miss. Sofia

There will be complete documents of transaction which will prove to your bank or its correspondence that the money going into your account is genuine, not a drug money, money laundering or in any way related to terrorist activities.

I am freely giving you full details of this transaction bearing in mind that you will not betray me. The name of the Bank I work is Turkish Bank . Since 2006 nobody has operated on this account again, the account has no other beneficiary so I need your full co-operation to make this work fine.

This transaction requires utmost trust and dedication from your side, since you will be receiving the funds as the Next of Kin/ and you shall be in control of the money, until I come over for my share. Regarding the sharing, you will be given 50% of the total amount, while 50% will be for me, Is a fair deal.

It is 100% risk free and secured once you follow my instructions and keep everything secret between us.

What I have to do, is to place your information in my bank system as the Next of Kin.This amount in question has being dormant in my bank in Turkey

involved. I am here to protect all your interests in this transaction until this money hits your account.

As the manager of this branch, the secret of the bank system is under my palm, placing your details in the system as the Next of Kin/ Heir to late. Jacobsen, is an easy work for me.

The only proof the bank will need is your identification, where your names are written as a legal beneficiary This is a very smooth operation, with me in the bank it will not last more than 7 banking days and the funds will be released to your designated bank account.

Note that as far as my bank is concern, I will be in control. It has been my dream to have my own company and I believe that God has answered my prayers by creating this opportunity. Please, remember to treat this transaction with utmost confidentiality for our own good. I will send you a copy of the Deposit slip for your perusal upon your response accordingly.

Hey there,
Could you tell me where you are located? Also, could you tell me more about your offer?

Hello Friend,

I wish to inform you that this letter is not a hoax mail and I urge you to treat it serious. We want to transfer to overseas account($30,000.000.00USD) Thirty million United States Dollars) from a prime Bank here in Turkey. I want to ask you, If you are not capable to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable and fit to provide either an existing bank account or to set up a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an empty a/c can serve to receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end for this important business trusting in you and believing in God that you will never let me down either now or in the future.

I am Mrs. Bothma Elizabetha, presently promoted to Auditor General in one of the banks here in Turkey. During the course of our auditing last week, I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 2000 and since 2004 nobody has operated on this account again, after going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [Heir/WILL] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing.The owner of this account is an American and a great industrialist and a resident of Alaska State, who unfortunately lost his life in the plane, crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2003, including his wife and only daughter leaving nobody to claim the money . No other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that the account is a secret account. The total amount !
involved is Thirty million United States Dollars only[$30,000.000.00] and we wish to transfer this money into a safe foreigners account abroad. But I don't know any foreigner; I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a local person here, but to a foreigner who has information about the account, which I shall give to you upon your positive response.

I am revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let me down in this business, you are the first and the only person that I am contacting for this business, so please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take urgently. I need your strong assurance that you will never let us down, me and a key bank official who is deeply involved with me in this business. I guarantee you that this transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law The bank official will destroy all documents of the transaction immediately you receive this money leaving no trace to any place. I will use my position and influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange departments. At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 50% of the total amount,50% will be for us.

Please advice me on your position immediately via this email:

PLEASE,TREAT THIS PROPOSAL AS TOP SECRET.

I look forward to your earliest reply .
