Hello Dear

Subject: Requesting your co-operation to receive (US$10,500, 000.00 ) Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars inheritance funds into your bank account.

I am Paul Douglas, a senior staff of the ECOWAS Regional Bank. I am contacting you to solicit your cooperation concerning our customer Walter Hook whose entire family were victims of the devastating 8.9-magnitude earthquake that triggered tsunami through Kesennuma City in Miyagi Prefecture Japan on Friday 11th March 2011.

Walter Hook The (deceased) has an account balance of (US$10,500, 000.00 ) Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars and about twenty five kilograms alluvial gold deposited in our bank’s custody until the unexpected tragedy in Japan that wiped out the family. By privilege of being Walter Hook’s personal account supervisor I have his file in my possession and I need your sincere co-operation to transfer these funds to a safe bank account in your country because the (deceased) presently has no next of kin to inherit his estate here.

I do not want to declare these huge sums of money as unclaimed funds which will just be forfeited to the government, and as a staff of the bank I cannot personally claim these funds.

We will successfully wind up the transfer of these funds to your preferred bank account within ambit of law as business associate to Walter Hook the (deceased) through a transparent legal documentation in your name, is rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk-free by virtue of my status in the bank and also my vast experience in the banking sector. I look forward to work with you for the successful swift transfer of these funds to your bank account.

As a seasoned bank do not ask many questions on the possibility or success of this project because I know how to go about manipulation of the bank Database to effect needed changes in your name. Upon successful completion of these into your bank account, I will come over to your country and meet with you personally so can share the funds 50/50 equal.

Contact me to my private Email for more details: ([email protected])

Paul Douglas,
