Dear Sir/Madam,

This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated
as such. I must solicit your confidentiality and assure you that I am
contacting you in good faith and this proposal will be of mutual benefit.
I am Mr. Fred Goodwin, Director Allocation department from the (Royal Bank
of Scotland Plc,) London Branch. My office monitors and controls the
affairs of all banks and financial institutions in England concerned with
foreign claim payments.

I am the final signatory to any transfer or remittance of huge funds
moving within banks both on the local and international levels in line
with foreign claim settlement. I have before me list of funds, which could
not be transferred to some nominated accounts as these accounts have been
identified either as ghost accounts, unclaimed deposits and over-invoiced
sum etc..

0n this note, I wish to have a deal with you as regards to an unpaid fund.
I have a file before me and the data's are correct and un-tampered. As it
is my duty to recommend the transfer of these surplus funds to the British
Government Treasury and Reserve Accounts as unclaimed deposits.

I have the opportunity to write you based on the instructions I received
two days ago from the Foreign Remittance Department of our bank to submit
the List of payment reports/ expenditures and audited reports of

Among several others, I have decided to remit your claim sum following my
idea that we can have a deal/agreement and I am going to do this legally.

the processing of all relevant legal documents with your name as the
bonafide beneficiary. The transfer will be made by Draft or telegraphic
Transfer (T/T) confirmable in 10 business days.

2. This deal must be kept secret forever, and all correspondence will be
strictly by email/telephone, for security purposes.

3. There should be no third parties as most problems associated with your
fund release are caused by your agents or representative.

If you AGREE with my conditions, l advise you on what to do immediately
and the transfer will commence without delay as I will proceed to fix your
name on the Payment schedule instantly to meet the stated mandate.

I hope you don't reject this offer and have your funds transferred.

Waiting for your reply soon.

Yours faithfully,
