In short, I am Barr. Peters Smith(a layer by profession and Chattered accountant), working for the Ziraat Bankasi Bank of Turkey as the present External Auditor. And so just last week, I discovered a very large sum of money belonging to a late customer of the bank.

This account has been dormant for a very long time since 1999 (12years now). The Investigation and personally research I have conducted shows that he died along his entire family in a fatal plane crash 12years ago and has left nobody to benefit the funds totaling 11.3 Million GBP.

So I am contacting you having found your email address and am proposing if you will be interested to stand in as the next-of-kin. I have all the legal documents to put you forward as the sole beneficiary of the funds, being a barrister at law.As well all files purporting to the funds in the bank are in my possession so you do not have even one little  cause to worry about.

All you have to compensate me with will come as your personal will. I am not going to task you. If I can not see any one to stand in, then my bank will send the money to the bank treasury as unclaimed funds.

Looking to receive from you with these details to proceed.

My Dear,

My name is Larissa Ijere Paul, 21years old originated from Guinea Bissau. I decide to contact you after my prayers, I really want to have a good relationship with you. My father Dr.Ijere Paul was the former Minister for SPLA Affairs and Special Adviser to President Salva Kiir of South Guinea for Decentralization. My father Dr.Ijere Paul and my mother including other top Military officers and top government officials had been on board when the plane crashed on Friday May 02, 2008.

After the burial of my father, my uncle conspired and sold my father’s properties to a Chinease Expatriate and live nothing for me. On a faithful morning, I opened my father’s briefcase and found out the documents which he have deposited huge amount of money in one bank in Burkina Faso with my name as the next of kin. I travelled to Burkina Faso to withdraw the money so that I can start a better life and take care of myself. On my arrival, the Branch manager of the Bank whom I met in person told me that my father’s instruction to the bank was the money be release to me only when I am married or present a foreigner trustee who will help me and invest the money in overseas.

I have chosen to contact you after my prayers and I believe that you will not betray my trust. But rather take me as your own sister. Though you may wonder why I am so soon revealing myself to you without knowing you, well, I will say that my mind convinced me that you are the true person to help me. More so, I will like to disclose much to you if you can help me to relocate to your country because my uncles have threatened to assassinate me. The amount is $5.7 Million and I have confirmed from the bank in Burkina Faso. You will also help me to place the money in a more profitable business venture in your Country. So my dear I decided to run to one Christian camp in Burkina Faso where I am presently seeking hiding now since I will go back to my country Guinea Bissau because my uncle will killed me if. I wish to contact you personally for a long term relationship and investment assistance in your Country. My father of blessed memory deposited the sum of US$5. 700, 000.00 in a Bank with my name as the next of kin as told you. That is why she planned to take way my life to enable him claim the money in the bank.

However, you will help by recommending a nice University in your country so that I can complete my studies. It is my intention to compensate you with 30% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my capital in your establishment. As soon as I receive your interest in helping me, I will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this transaction sincerely. Please do keep this only to your self. I beg you not to disclose it till I come over because I am afraid of my wicked uncle who has threatened to kill me. I will send you my picture in my next email and tell you more about me. Hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely yours,

Miss Larissa Ijere Paul
