Dear Friend,

First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, this is by
virtue of it's nature as being utterly confidential and top secret.
Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one
apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that this is real and

I Manuel Jones the head of corporate and institutional banking Bills
and African Development Bank Branch Dakar-Senegal.I came to know you in
my private search for a reliable and reputable person to handle this

family on 25th July,2000,Air France Concorde flight 4590 plane crash.Since
his death, none of his next-of-kin or relations has come forward to lay
claims for this money as the heir.African Development Bank cannot
release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the
next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines,
unfortunately, no family member nor relative has ever appeared to claim the
said fund Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you
stand as next of kin to the deceased so that the fund £20,500,000.00
(Twenty million Five hundred thousand great British pounds sterling)can

treasury as unclaimed funds and will be subsequently conficicated by the

About the only thing here that is real is the bank see

You used a UK e-mail addy (which I removed to prevent you being spammed) so I assume you speak English pretty well. Just step back and look at the English. Would any banker write his currency like that? Also note that the e-mail is addressed to you, but it starts "Dear Friend" - that is because it has been mailed to possibly thousands of others. Here is another example where Andreas Schranner was apparently a resident of Ghana.

Also how many French Men have the name Manuel Jones ? Smile

Finally, the offer is criminal in that a bank manager is offering to share 25m of money that belongs to the people of Senegal with you. Even if it was real (WHICH IT IS NOT) on arrival in any bank used by you, you would have some serious explaining to do both to the Tax Authorities and to the Police.

Walk Away!
