I am Mr. Steven Lee, am one of the Staff of our Bank.
On the 2nd of January 2005, I received a call that one of my customer died
in the Tsunami Disaster with his wife and only child while on Vacation at
Phuket Island in Thailand.

Since Then I have made several enquiries to locate any of my customer's
extended relatives and until date have not succeeded.

I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by My
client before it gets confiscated by our bank or declared Unserviceable by
our bank where this deposit Is lodged.

Now, the bank Directors has called a board meeting regarding this Fund. So
my main motive right now is to share this great opportunity with You by
presenting you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased since all his Banking
details are with me as his personal Account Officer. And the Deceased
Account valued atUS$10,000.000.00 (Ten Million United States Dollars).

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the biological relatives of my
late client, I hereby seek your consent to present you to the bank as
next-of-kin of the deceased since you are a foreigner, so that the proceeds
of this account valued at US$10,000.000.00 can be transferred to you as
inheritance and thereafter, you and I can share the money; 50% to me and 40%
to you, while 10% will be donated to the Tsunami Disaster Charity Fund.

We shall start the first transfer with US $500,000.000.00 (Five Million
United States Dollars only), upon the successful actualization of the First
transfer without any disappointment from your side, we shall Re-apply for
the payment of the remaining amount to your account.

I have the original copy of Certificate of Deposit of the funds, which will
be used to substantiate our inheritance claims. All I Require is your
consent and honest co-operation to enable us see the deal through.

Furthermore, I guarantee that the transaction will be executed under
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

Please contact me if you are interested immediately via my personal
Best regards,
Mr. Steven Lee
