Dear Friend,

I am Mr. James Wise, I work with a Bank in Europe as an account officer in the Treasury/Credit 
Control Unit. I was the accounting officer of a national of your
country, who died with his wife and their only son,after they were involved in a car accident.

After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to 
locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have
contacted you to assist in repatriating the assets and Capital valued at Ј10,000,000.00 Million 
Pounds left behind by my client before they get
confiscated or declared unserviceable by the shareholders of this Bank, so that they can share his 
funds as dividends amongst themselves.

The Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within 
the next fourteen official working days.Because as at the
time of his demise I was his accounting officer, but have since been promoted to the position of 
Treasury/Credit Control Unit,ever since I have been unsuccessful
in locating the relatives for sometime now seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to 
the deceased since you have
the same last names, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Therefore, on receipt 
of your positive response, we shall then discuss
modalities for transfer.

As soon as I recieve an acknowledgement of your acceptance, I will furnish you with the necessary 
modalities of the transaction. I assure you that this
transcaction is 100% risk free, and as soon as we succeed in getting this funds to your account, 
The money will be shared on a 50,50 basis............... I
guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any 
breach of the law.

I am waiting to hear from you soon.

Best regards,

James Wise
