    Subject: your urgent response is needed.

    Dear Friend ,

    I am Madam Victoria Roys, a member of staff of SOCIETE GENERALE AU
    BANQUES
    DES BURKINA(SGBB)OUAGDOUGOU BURKINA FASO.I am writing following an
    oppurtunity in my office that will be of imense benefit to both of us.

    This might be a surprise to you about where I got your contact
    address.Please I got your name and address through a commercial
    publication
    via national directory. during my desperate search for someone that
    could
    honestly and confidentially assist me by serving as my trustee.

    In my department i discovered an abandoned sum of $10.7m (TEN MILLION
    SEVEN
    HUNDRED THAUSAND DOLLARS)in an account that belongs to one of our
    foreign
    customers Late Mr. Morris Thompson an American who unfortunately lost
    his
    life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on
    January 31 2000, including his wife and only daughter. You shall read
    more
    about the crash on visiting this website.

    Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his
    next of
    kin or relatves to come over and claim his money because the Bank
    cannot
    release the funds unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or
    relation
    to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.Unfortunately I
    learnt that his supposed next of kin being his only daughter died along
    with
    him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund
    behind
    for the claim.

    It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to do business with
    you
    and release the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the
    funds
    for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming
    for it
    and we donít want this money to go back into ban treasury as unclaimed
    bill.I agreed that 35% of this money will be for you as foreign
    partner, 5%
    for any expences that might come up,while the ballance will be for me .
    I
    will visit your country for the disbursement according to the
    percentages
    indicated above once this money gets into your account. Please be
    honest to
    me and trust is our watchword in this transaction. Note this
    transaction is
    confidential and risk free.

    As soon as you receive this mail you should contact me by return mail
    whether or not you are willing to enter into this deal. In the event
    you are
    not interested, I sincerely ask that you disregard this email and tell
    no
    one about it. I am very careful on truncating my banking career should
    you
    mention this to someone else. I hope you can be trusted in this regard.

    Please note that all necessary arrangement for the smooth release of
    these
    funds to you has been finalised. We will discuss much in details when I
    do
    receive your response.Please in your response include your telephone
    number
    and fax number for a better communication between us.
    I await your response. Do send your response to m_vic01@yahoo.com

    sincerely yours
    Madam Victoria roys.

    Scam, lots of things going around like this. Kind of sad when you think of it. Some people still try this, and some fall for it.

    Subject: details
    To: "Julie Shipton"

    Dear Julie

    Thanks for your williness in assisting me to move this fund into your account.Am assuring you that as a very busy business person I will not in any way waste your precious time but at the same time will plead with you to give this transaction the necessary attention that it requires and if you do it like the way you handle your other business engagements I assure you that within a very short time we will be able to bring this transaction to a close.

    The first thing towards receiving this money into your bank account is to apply to the bank as the next of kin to the deceased customer by the text of the application which i will forward to you n your response to my mail ,you will retype it into your company letter headed paper to make it official but where you do not have a company letter headed paper you can still do it in a plain paper provided that you sign on it.

    I still want to reassure you that this is a 100% risk and hitch free transaction as long as you follow my instructions religiously every information for the succes of this have being put in place before i contacted you. and another point of note is that while this transaction is going on you should try to keep my identity secret so that nobody in the bank will know that I am involved for it to be succesful, and after the transfering of the fund into your account i will weep away all the information of the transfer from our office file here so that there will not be any trace tomorrow.

    I will at this juncture want to bring to you notice that as you are aware that business for it to see the light of the day will require some sort of commitment and trust from us, I want you to know that if you follow my instruction this transaction will not exceed 10working days.

    Wishing you a pleasant week while waiting to hear from you as soon as you receive this mail, Please do give me a call on this telephone number +226 78 85 38 22. As you can see we do not have enough time on our side, we need to hurry things up.
    Have a nice day while i wait for your response.

    Madam Victoria

    :confused: I have her email address (or the one that is on the top of this) Is there anything I can do to her?

    not really, you see, the name is probably fake. Some people try to lead them on, but that can be dangerous. I'd just stay away from her and do not give her any personal information.
