Hello Distinguished Sir or Madam,

I hope this email reaches you in time.  I would like to offer you a
business proposition.  I am the owner of $60B in Swiss and US bank
account and would gladly offer you a fee of $1B if you will release a
press statement that I am about to surrender to the rebel Transitional
National Council. 

However, to get the banks to release the money, I need you to forward
me the transfer fees in the amount of $1MM so that the banks will
transfer the money to you.  Please forward this payment into my new
untraceable swiss account so that I may send you the $1B payment.
