PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL ATTN: Managing Director I am Mr. DAVID RICH, a Financial Auditor with a reputable financial institution here in London United Kingdom. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposal for you, an American oil consultant with the British Petroleum Corporation late Engr. L.D. WHITE made a numbered time fixed deposit for twelve calendar months. This was valued at Fourteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only in our branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his employers, that Engr. L.D. WHITE had died in a plane crash in Alaska on an Alaska Airlines flight number 261. On further investigation, I found out that in his will he left a message that the inheritor of his estate should not forget about charity, however Engr. L.D. WHITE did not leave a name in this will. I then tried to contact family/friend/colleagues and all attempts to trace his next of kin were frui tless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Engr. L.D. WHITE did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his bank deposit paperwork in my Bank. The sum of US$14,500,000.00 is still sitting in our Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of UNITED KINGDOM, at the expiration of (10) Ten years, the money will revert to the ownership of the British Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin/associate to the deceased, Engr. L.D. WHITE so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple, I would like you to provide immediately your full names, address and telephone numbers so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of k A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the next of kin/associate to the deceased. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 40% for you. There is no risk involved at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as a prominent Financial Auditor guarantees the successful execution of this transaction.
