After a private investigation, I discovered that the owner of this account was the director general of SCOA S.A . A foreigner who has since died without LIVING a beneficiary to this account. My investigation proved to me also that nobody from the company knows about this account since the company has now become operational. The amount contained in this account is USD$ 13,780,000,00. It is my wish and intention to take this fund abroad for investment.
My colleague and I will need you to set up a new account for this transfer and send to us or you might send an existing account with no fund in it for us to use. We will use normal banking procedure to transfer the fund legally. I will bring my position and influence to facilitate this transfer immediately by legal means. What we request is absolute secrecy and confidentiality. And that you will never and never disappoint us when this funds has been transferred to your account. There is no risk to this business as I will follow the normal banking procedure.

Sharing shall be 20% for you, 75% for me and remaining 5% to offset any expenses incurred by both parties because, in business every cent spent counts.
