Dear Friend,

I just want to inform you that I have deposited your ATM DEBIT CARD of Usd$800,000,00 United state dollars to the Chronopost Delivery services here in Benin Republic, due to I have waited enough to hear from you so that your funds can be transferred through UNITED BANK FOR AFRICA (UBA) here, but because of the late response I now decide to deposit the ATM DEBIT CARD with the Chronopost delivery services with your previous information as you listed it that time.

I have paid them their delivery charges & insurance coverage fee, the only fee to be paid is their security safe keeping fee of $185 dollars only.

I will be travelling to Paraguay to see my boss and I will not come back till next month,Therefore I will advise you to contact the Chronopost shipment officer with his contact information as listed below to avoid them increasing their security safe keeping fee.

Note that I packaged the ATM DEBIT CARD inside a magazine where nobody will notice the content, I also told the shipment officer Mr.Ike Dominic, that is ordinary African magazine that I want to deliver to my friend to avoid further delay unless you delay to send their security safe keeping fee.

Below is the shippment officer contact information including his email address with the parcel reference number, note that without you indicating your parcel number as listed below the Chronopost delivery services will not listen to you they will be imagining if you want to steal another persons parcel.

Also below is the information they need to deliver the ATM DEBIT CARD in form of African Magazine to your address, this is to avoid wrong delivery as i already gave them your delivery address but you have to re-confirm it to them ok.

Please make sure the information is complete as they promised that once they receive their security safe keeping fee within 2 to 3 working days the magazine will arrived your door step according to the shipment officer.

Once again, the Chronopost delivery services do not know the content of the parcel, I registered it as an African magazine they don't know it contains ATM DEBIT CARD inside this is to avoid them delaying the delivery and besides I don't want you to loose your inherittance funds.

You can even call the shipment officer on his private line to confirm this delivery +229 93 41 13 48, let me know immediately you receive the ATM DEBIT CARD.

Dear Friend,

(TOP SECRET) I am Henry Mazak,the supervisory manager at the United Bank for Africa(UBA) Ouagadougou,Burkina Faso,West Africa.With due respect and regard. I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction .

During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person who died on July 31st 2003 in a plane crash and the fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this development.

The said amount was U.S $17.5M (Seventeen million five hundred thousand United States dollars). As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive information and email address through the International web directory of Burkina Faso chamber of commerce on foreign business relations here in Ouagadougou Burkina-faso.

Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased,to get the required approval and transfer this money to a foreign account has been put in place and directives and needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity.

In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant(A Banker),we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because I work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin with affidavit of trust of oath to the Bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred into on his request as it may be after due verification and clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank where the whole money will be remitted from to your own designation bank account.

I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of the total sum as gratification, while 5% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone bills, while 65% will be for me. Please, you have been adviced to

keep "top secret" as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal with you.

I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask me to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any country you advice us to invest in. All other necessary vital information will be sent to you when I hear from you.

I look forward to receive your email and reply to my email address as the urgency implies.

Yours faithfully, MR.Henry Mazak.
