I believe that it takes just a contact for people to meet and become great friends and business 
partners. This is a personal and private letter directed to you and I request that it be treated as 

My name is Stephen G. Winnington, a Retiree. I was the personal Financial Advisor to a late Client 
that died in a car crash along with his immediate family members on the 16th of August 2007. 
Shortly after his death, I was directed by his bank to locate any of his extended relatives whom 
shall be claimant/beneficiary of his fixed deposit account with the bank valued at Eight Million 
Great British Pounds (Ј8,000,000.00). I tried my best to locate any of his family members but all 
such efforts were unsuccessful. I also sought the assistance of his original Home Country Embassy

To commence the process of claim and transfer of this fund to your designated bank account, you 
need firstly signify your interest by return mail, and I give you full details regarding this deal 
on gaining your confidence. Rest assured that there are no risks involved as all process involved 
in achieving a smooth transfer of this fund to your nominated account would be legally followed. Do 
also note that I have with me, copies of the original documents to the fixed deposit account needed 
to give credence and legitimacy to the claim. The documents were entrusted in my care by my late 
Client days after making the fixed deposit, so you need not entertain any fears. Also note that 
from my discreet investigation, successful transfer of the

Fund to your nominated account can be achieved within 16 Banking days of signifying your interest. 
Like I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this. Please, include your Private and 
confidential Phone number (preferably Mobile) in your reply.

Best regards,

Stephen G. Winnington
