BULLSHIT
The fraud emails are hot and heavy this season. I like the detail about the Concord plane crash near Paris " that took almost the whole lives of passengers on board." So there were some partial lives remaining?

Dear Friend,
I am DR. AMBROSE EKPO, the bills and exchange manager at the foreign remittance department of ACCESS BANK NIGERIA PLC. I am writing to you following the impressive information about you through one of my friends who runs a consultancy firm in your country. He assured me of your capability and reliability to champion this business opportunity. In my department, we discovered an abandoned sum of US$25.5m TWENTY FIVE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS, in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer that died in a concord plane crash alongside with his entire family in the year 2000 in Paris that took almost the whole lives of passengers on board. Since we got the information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as the next of kin or a relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. But unfortunately, we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation, died along with him in the Plane crash, leaving nobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department now decided to make this business proposal to you and release this money to you as the next of kin or a relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement, since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill for the Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remains unclaimed after three to four years, the money will be transferred into the Banks treasury account as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkina be cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agreed that your percentage shall by negotion with you as a foreign partner in reward for your role to realise this dream, 10% will be set aside for any expences both paties might incured in the course of the deal.Thereafter, I and my colleagues will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages agreed upon by both paties in other words it will be subjuct to negotiation. Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the Bank as relations or next of kin to the deceased, indicating your names,private telephone and fax numbers for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be remitted. Upon receipt of your reply,I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is a hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yours faithfully,

DR. AMBROSE EKPO

BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER.
ACCESS BANK NIGERIA PLC.

N.B. My intention of writing you through email is
Because I believe it is very confidential.
