Dear Friend,
This message might meet you in utmost surprise, however,it's just my
urgent
need for foreign partner that made me to contact you for this
transaction. I
am a banker by profession from Burkina faso in west Africa and
currently
holding the post of Director Auditing and Accounting unit of the bank.I
have
the opportunity of transfering the left over funds ($11.5million) of
one of
my bank clients who died along with his entire family on 31 july 2000
in a
plane crash.You can confirm the genuiness of the deceased death by
clicking
on this web site
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm

Hence,i am inviting you for a business deal where this money can be
shared
between us in the ratio of 60/30 while 10% will be mapped out for
expenses.If you agree to my business proposal.further details of the
transfer will be forwarded to you as soon as i receive your return
mail.
have a great day.
yours,
Mr Aziz Usman

I replied to him that I am an anonomyous user of yahoo, and have no personal information posted, so why would he write to me?

here is how he replied:

Dear  friend
 How are you and your family? Thanks for the mail,Meanwhile,I think you need better understanding of this transaction, so in this light read the information below; First, I want you to know that a next of kin can be a brother, sister, friend, or extended relation from any part of the world irrespective of your sex, age and colour as the bank is aware of this fact your been related to the deceased or not does not  matter, i want to assure you that there are no risks involved in this transaction because it is something i studied well as a senior director in this bank before contacting you to assist me as a foreign partner, to work as one body with sincerity and claim this dormant fund. like i stated earlier to you, if there is any risk of any kind i don't think i can risk my job opportunity for something that i am not sure of. i am still a senior director in this same bank where the fund will be transferred from to your designated account. i am also here to direct you in all things you are to do. i contacted you because i cannot make this claim alone except with a foreigner, you have no much duty to do as i will be directing you appropriately in every step so that we succeed.
 
the bank account holding the us$11.5m belongs to our bank customer who is deceased since the year 2000. our bank customer mr kurt kahle died alongside with his wife and son. the bank account that is holding the us$11.5m has no next of kin attached to it and as that the bank account is open to, liable to and subject to inheritance claim. i want you to understand that there is no time to waste, if this us$11.5m is not claimed now, it might remain forever in the treasury of the bank. the truth and the fact about this business, i have given to you. i await your response...
 
the transfer of the us$11.5m is going to take place legally in the bank. there is not going to be any short-cut transfer here in the bank. the transfer of the us$11.5m is going to take place under strict banking laws/ethics and operational guidelines. so the bank in your country is not going to disturb you, because due and proper banking process must be implied in the transfer. the bank in your country is not going to question you since the us$11.5m has to be transferred to your bank account as an 'inheritance claim fund' and you will be tagged the beneficiary of the fund.
 
the bank authorities must request some legal documents such as the certificate of death of mr.kurt kahle and i have already procured the death certificate of mr.kurt kahle. the bank authorities must surely request the presentation of this legal documentation before the transfer of this us$11.5m. i shall be your guidance in this transaction so there is not going to be any problem or mistake in this transaction.
