Hello, I am Mr.Victor Savage, Senior Audit Officer of Barclays Bank Plc United Kingdom. I am seeking your assistance to help me receive the sum of Ј22.8million British Pounds Sterling (Twenty Two Million Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling) to your possession. The funds was an abandoned account that belongs to one of our foreign customer, a German estate tycoon, late Mr.Andreas Schranner who died along with his entire family in the plane crash of Air France Concorde flight 4590 which crashed on July 25th 2000 after indebt investigation. Since his death, none of his relation has come forward to lay claims on this money as the heir,his supposed next of kin died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for the claim. We cannot release the funds from his account unless someone apply for claim as the beneficiary to the funds as indicated in our banking guidelines. It is therefore upon this discovery that i and one other official now decided to make business with you and release the money to you as the beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed bill. We would file a letter of claim to the appropriate departments of my bank for necessary approvals in your favour,after this the money will be release to you for both of us. We agreed that 30% of the funds will be for you as foreign partner, while the balance will be for me and my coleague after reimburse all expenses incurred by all parties during the transaction. I will visit your country for the disbursement according to the percentages indicated above once the funds gets into your account. I will need your assurance that our percentage share will be released to us in good faith when this funds finally gets into your nominated bank account. I believe that you are a reliable and honest person capable of handling this transaction hoping that you will never let me down. All necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you has been finalised, further details will be given to you when i do receive your response. Thanks, Mr.Victor Savage
