Dear , I am Mr. STEVE WILLIAMS a banker by profession, currently working with BIAO BANK ABIDJAN COTE DIVOIRE. I am the account manager of late Mr. Richard SHELTON, the formal manager of Cocoa processing industry . On the 22nd of OCT.2009 ,our customer, his wife and only child were involved in a ghastly motor accident, where all the occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several inquiries to locate any of his extended relatives or Business partners and this has proved abortive. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to contact you for your assistance to transfer the sum of( US$2.6 M ) (TWO Million Six hundred thousand United States Dollars) that was left behind by our customer in our bank . The banking Law and guideline of BIAO BANK stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed for over four years, the money will be converted into bank treasury as unclaimed fund. Therefore i am contacting you, for your assistance to transfer the money to your account. I have decided to offer you 40 % of the total money for your assistance, I also want to assure you that this transaction is legal. Therefore you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer . Awaiting your immediate response regards Mr.STEVE WILLIAMS
