Please accept my sincere apologies if my email does not meet your business or personal ethics. I will first introduce myself as Mr.Mark Harrison, a staff in the Private Clients Section of a well known bank, here in London, England.

One of our accounts, with holding balance of £15,000,000 (Fifteen Million Pounds Sterling) has been dormant and last operated Eight years ago. From my investigations and confirmation, the owner of the said account, a foreigner by name John Shumejda died on the 4th of January 2002 in a plane crash in Birmingham; For your confirmation, you can view this CNN website">
for details on the crash.
Since then, nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money, as he has no family member that has any knowledge as to the existence of either the account or the funds; and also Information from the National Immigration also states that he was single on entry into the UK.
I have confidently discussed this issue with some of the bank officials and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. We therefore propose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of these funds from the deceased and funds released to you after necessary processes have been followed. We have confabulated and concluded that we shall offer you 25% for you assistance.
This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act.

On your interest, let me hear from you through this E-mail address
Warm Regards,
Mark Harrison
