               (VERY URGENT BUSINESS)

Dear sir,

In order to transfer out (USD 126 M) One hundred and
twenty six million United States Dollars) from African
Development Bank. I have the courage to ask you to
look for a reliable and honest person who will be
capable for
this important business believing that you will never
let me down either now or in future.

I am Mr Elijah Johnson, the Chief auditor of African
Development Bank (ADB). There is an account opened in
this bank in 1980 and since 1990 nobody has operated
on this account again. after going through some old
files in the records I discovered that if I do not
remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for
nothing. the owner of this account is Mr. Smith B.
Andreas, a foreigner, and a miner at kruger gold co.,
a geologist by profession and  he died since 1990. no
other person knows about this account or any thing
concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary
and my investigation proved to me as well that this
company does not know anything about this account and
the amount involved is (USD 126M) One hundred and
twenty six million United States Dollars million
dollars. I want to first transfer USDM twenty six
million United States Dollars from this money into a
safe foreigners account abroad before the rest, but I
don't know any foreigner, I am only contacting you as
a foreigner because this money can not be approved to
a local bank here, but can only be approved to any
foreign account because the money is in us dollars and
the former owner of the account is Mr. Smith B.
Andreas is  a foreigner too.  I know that this message
will come to you as a surprise as we  don't know our
selves before, we will sign agreement, but be sure
that it is real and a genuine business. I
only got your contact address my from my secretary who
operates computer,
with believe in god that you will never let me down in
this business you are the only person that I have
contacted in this business, so please reply urgently
so that I will inform you the next step to take
urgently. Send also your private telephone and fax
number including the full details of the account to be
used for the deposit.

I want us to meet face to face or sign a binding
agreement to bind us together so that you can receive
this money into a foreign account or any account of
your choice where the fund will be safe. and I will
fly to your country for withdrawal and sharing and
other investments.

I am contacting you because of the need to involve a
foreigner with foreign account and foreign
beneficiary. I need your full co-operation to make
this work fine. because the management is ready to
approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct
information of this account, which Iwill give to you
later immediately, if you are able and with capability
to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust
according to my instructions and advice for our mutual
benefit because this opportunity will never come again
in my life. I need truthful person in this business
because I don't want to make mistake I need your
strong assurance and trust.

With my position now in the office I can transfer this
money to any foreigner's reliable account which you
can provide with assurance that this money will be
intact pending my physical arrival in your country for
sharing. I will destroy all documents of transaction
immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to
any place. you can also come to discuss with me face
to face after which I will make this remittance in
your presence and two of us will fly to your country
at least two days ahead of the money going into the

I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately
I hear from you that you are ready to act and receive
this fund in your account. I will use my position and
influence to effect legal approvals and onward
transfer of this money to your account with
appropriate clearance forms of the ministries and
foreign exchange departments.

At the conclusion of this business, you will be given
35% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 5%
will be for expenses both parties might have incurred
during the process of transferring.

I look forward to your earliest reply through my email
