Your Attn,

Compliments of the season and good day.I am Michalis Pantazis,the treasury and
planning department manager at the Universal Bankltd here in Nicosia,Cyprus,i am
writing this letter to solicit for support and assistance from you to carry out
this business opportunity in my bank.

Lying in an inactive account is the sum of Four Million
Euros(4,000,000:00euros) belonging to a foreign customer(Caripides William) who
was a gas consultant here in Cyprus,he happened to be deceased during a business
trip with his wife and only son(Caripides Gabriella and Peter) on board the
Swissair Flight 111 , which crashed into the Atlantic off Nova Scotia in
september 2nd 1998.
Info of this crash was on the news which we have tried to notify his relatives
but to no avail,see link below for more detailed information: 

Ever since he died the bank has been expecting his next of kin to come and
claim these fund which cannot be released unless someone applies for it as next
of kin, as indicated in our banking guidelines,unfortunately he has no family
member in Cyprus or Over-sea who are aware of the existence of the money,at this
juncture, i have decided to do business with you by soliciting your assistance
in applying as the next of kin to the bank then the money will be released to
you,as i do not want the money to go into the bank treasury as an unclaimed
bill,because the banking laws and guidelines stipulates that if such money(s)
remains unclaimed  for a period of eleven years(11yrs),the money will be moved
into the bank treasury as an unclaimed bill.
My request for a foreigner as next of kin is occasioned by the fact that the
customer was a foreigner and a Cyprut cannot stand as next of kin.

50% of the money will be your share as a foreign partner and your assistance to
actualise this deal,thereafter i will visit your country with your help once the
money hits your account for disbursement according to the percentage indicated.
To effect the immediate transfer of the fund to you as agreed,you must apply
first to the bank as the next of kin to the deceased,then we will follow up all
formalities for the transaction.

Upon receipt of your reply, i will send to you, the text of application you are
to send to the bank,and further clearify you in other issues as to effect this
Awaiting to hear from you urgently.

Best Regards
Michalis Pantazis.
