Dear Friend,

My name is DR.JERRY PHILLIP. Iím an Accountant with BANK OF AFRICA. I am
writing in respect of a foreign customer of my bank (Kurt Karl) who had a
plane crash and died with his wife and two children on 30th JULY,2000 in a
CONCORDE PLANE CRASH [ Flight AF4590] with the whole passengers aboard.
See below, the Website for more information about the plane crash.

There was an account opened in this bank in 1998 by this great Late
Director who died without a written or oral WILL attached to the account.
Since his death, I personally have watched with keen interest to see the
next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his
funds and no other person knows about this account or anything concerning
it, the account has no other beneficiary and until his death he was the
Director of his company. The total amount involved is $30.500, 000 (USD).

We wish to start the first transfer with US$20.500.000[20.5million] and
upon successful transaction without any disappointment from your side, we
shall re-apply for the transfer of the remaining balance to your account
in bits. I have prayed and I believe that we must succeed in this
transaction with your utmost co-operation in order to have a smooth and a
successful transfer of the fund to any foreign bank account which you are
going to nominate.

On this note, I have decided to seek for a reliable foreigner who will act
as the foreign beneficiary of the fund from the deceased until the funds
have been finally transferred and we will effect an immediate investment
on any available and reliable project as no one has come up to be the next
of kin.

 The banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than ten
years without claim hence the money will be recalled to the government
treasury as unclaimed after this long period of dormancy. In view of
this, I got your contact through my personal search to see if you can
assist me by providing your full personal Information for the transfer or
find a reliable person who will be capable of receiving such amount in
his or her personal account.

At the conclusion of the transfer, 50% of the fund will be for me here, I
would give you 45% of the total transfer sum, 5% for charity both in
Africa and in your country.

To proceed, I would like you to send me the information of any account of
your choice where you will like this fund to be transferred into or open a
new account where you will want this money to be transferred into.

This transaction is totally free of risk and trouble as the fund is a
legitimate fund which does not originate from drug, money laundry,
terrorism or any other illegal act. Upon the receipt of your reply, I will
send to you, the detailed information about the transaction.

I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is 100% risk
and trouble free and that you should not entertain any fear as all
modalities for fund transfer can be finalized within 7 to 9 banking days,
after we apply to the bank as the beneficiary of the fund from the

However, after your confirmation of the funds in your account, we shall
meet in your country to discuss what capital venture to invest the fund
into, in your country with your technical-knowledge.

Please do include the following information in your response to this
partnership Idea:

(1)Full Name
(2)Telephone & Fax numbers
(3)Residential Contact address
(4)Occupation/marital status
(5)Company Name

Please Endeavour to reply me via my private email address [] with the
above information about the person. I shall ask the legal advisor of the
bank to prepare the documentation in your name as the bonafide owner of
the whole fund $30.5M. (USD)

Best Regards.
