Dear Friend,

I know that this mail will come to you out as a total surprise. Well, I have a
business proposal which I believe might interest you. I believe that you would
be in a position to assist me in my bid to transfer the sum of ($20.8M) Twenty
Million Eight Hundred Thousand United State Dollars into a foreign bank account.

I am Mr Tony Richmond,Client manager of Alliance and Leicester Credit Bank here
in United Kingdom.During the course of our auditing,I discovered a floating fund
in an account opened in the bank in 1999 and since 2004 nobody has operated on
this account.After a lot of investigation I discovered that the owner of the
bank account died without a beneficiary. The money is floating and if I do not
remit this money out it will be forfeited for nothing. The owner of the account
is a foreigner. He died since 2004 and the bank account has no other
beneficiary.My investigation proved to me that nobody knows about this account
or anything concerning it. So I want to grab this opportunity, as it is no harm
to nobody.

I am here soliciting for your assistance as a foreigner because the money
cannot be approved to anybody here. But It can be approved to a foreigner with
valid international passport or drivers license and who operate in a foreign
account because the former owner of the account is a foreigner.The management
must approve this payment to you if you have the correct information of this
account, which I will give to you,upon your positive response and once I am
convinced that you are capable to handle this project and with the help of key
bank official who is deeply involved with me in this project.

With my influence and the position of the bank officials, we can transfer this
money to any foreigner's reliable account, which you can provide with
assurance that this money will be intact pending my physical arrival at your end
for sharing. Note that an existing foreign account or an empty account can serve
to receive this money.At the conclusion of this business, you will be give 20%
of the total amount, 75% will be for the bank official and I, while 5% will be
for expenses both parties might have incurred during the course of this
transaction. May I stop here. Reply urgently so that I will inform you the next
step to take. Send also your private phone and fax number 
with your personal details to enable me start communication with you

Hope to hear from you soon.

Tony Richmond {MR}
