Ms Rose Adams.
Abidjan - Ivory Coast,
My name is MS Rose Adams, a staff in Banking and operation department of a Commercial Bank in Ivory Coast .I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.
On January 6 2003, An oil consultant / contractor with Ivory Coast National Petroleum Corporation made a numbered time(fixed) deposited for 3 calendar years valued at US$7,000,000.00 ( Seven Million united states dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally discovered that the customer who deposited this fund died in plane crash along with his entire family.
On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin were ruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that he did not declare any next of kin in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork. This sum of US$ 7,000,000.00 is still sitting in the Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will come forward to claim it.
According to the Ivory Coast Law, at the expiration of 3 (three) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Ivory Coast Government if nobody applies to claim the funds, as an abandoned treasure.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to the dead customer, for this USD 7,000 000.00 to be release to you, so that the fruits of this old mans labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials.
As an Accountant and a staff of this bank, what we have to do is simple, as far as you fellow my instructions.
May i inform you that secrecy, trust, honest and confident should be a base for the success of this transaction, base on this, Me and you are much expected to keep this bus
