Good day,

I apologize for sending you this sensitive information via e-mail Instead of a Certified/Post-mail.

This is due to the urgency and importance of the information. I humbly crave your Indulgence to 
read this e-mail with all seriousness of purpose devoid of any doubt in your mind because this 
project is based on trust, confidentiality and sincerity of purpose in order to have an acceptable 
meeting of the minds.  Although, we have never met before, but i have every reason to believe that 
you are a highly respected personality, considering the fact that i got your e- mail address 
through internet my online network, while searching for a reliable and reputable person that can 
handle this transaction.

I am a senior manager accounts/audit in Nat West Bank London. I am writing following an opportunity 
in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us. In my department we discovered an 
abandoned sum of ?10.5 (Ten million five hundred Thousand Pounds Only) in an account that belongs 
to one of our foreign customers who unfortunately lost his life on his way to the Airport.  Since 
we got information about his death, we have been expecting His next of kin or relatives to come 
forward and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as Next of 
kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.

Unfortunately I discovered that his supposed next of kin, being his Only daughter and wife died 
along with him in the auto crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for claim. 
It is Therefore upon this discovery that I and his account manager now decided to make business 
with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safety 
keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want the money to go 
back into Government treasury as unclaimed.  The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that 
such money remained after seven years the money will be transferred into banking treasury as 
unclaimed funds.

We agreed that 35% of this money would be for you as foreign partner, while the balance will be for 
my colleagues and me.  I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage 
indicated above, once this money gets into your account. Please be honest with me. To commence this 
transaction, we require you to immediately indicate your interest by a return e-mail and enclose the

Following information:

1. Full name.

2: Your private telephone and Fax numbers.

3. Occupations and Nationality.

4. Date Of Birth.

5. Present Location.

Note this transaction is confidential and risk free. Please note that all the necessary arrangement 
for the smooth release of these funds to you will be finalized as soon as you indicate your role in 
this transaction. We will discuss more in details when I receive your response, please contact me 
through my private E-mail address (

Best regards

Dave Coleman
