I am Dr. Peter Owen, I am 45 years old married with three (3) children , I work with a Bank here in UK, , I obtained your address particulars from an Internet address listing, and hence I contacted you in confidence on this very urgent and confidential proposition that is of mutual benefit to us all and our children.
On 27th of May 2001, a Foreigner Hamid Ali Raja an Oil Consultant/Contractor here in my Country (United Kingdom) operated a domiciliary Account, which its value is GBP15, 000,000.00 (Fifteen Million United Grate Britain Pounds) in my branch, without presenting a usual information on his Next of Kin beneficiary, we accepted this due to the fact that Banks are conservative and will always honor a customer's wishes, especially high net worth customers.For about four (7) years now, we have been looking forward to any vital information on the depositor, but it has been confirmed that the original depositor (MR MARK J. SCOTT) has died here in London, on making this discovery my Bank has been expecting the relative or next of kin of the original depositor to come up for the claim of this funds, but since no one has turned up for the claim and fund is still sitting in my Bank in the Dormant Account Portfolio, which I have been protecting awaiting the appropriate time to convert this fund for person al utilization.
With this year coming to an end, I see it as the appropriate time to actualize the arrangement, but this could not be actualized without the help of a Foreign Partner, hence I have resolved to contact you in confidence to work as my Foreign partner as to have this claim processed in your favor, by presenting you as a distant relative of this customer for the immediate transfer of the funds into an Account that will provided by you as the beneficiary, pending my arrival there in your Country for sharing and investment purposes, which will be carried out without your assistance there in your Country.
This call is important due the Banking Law here in my UK, that domiciliary Accounts that have been Dormant for 7 Years, should be revert to the Federal Government Treasury, hence the partnership is essential as I have rehearsed and perfected all arrangement on this, that it is not necessary you come from the same country with him as you will not be required to visit my country.

These will be approved. The money transfer paperwork itself will include a certificate of origin so that the receiving bank does not ask questions or refuse the money as money laundering. Also, the paperwork will include proper certification that the funds being transferred are from non criminal sources. In short this will be a proper and legal money transfer and there is no risk, hence the confidentiality is maintained on your side as the beneficiary to the Estate of the late Mr. Hamid Ali Raja .To actualize this arrangement, from your side as a partner I will require the following details:-
