FROM JAMES L. DIMON TREASURY DEPARTMENT, JP MORGAN CHASE BANK, LONDON. 125 London Wall, London EC2Y 5AJ TEL: +447023061552 Attention: I AM JAMES L. DIMON, Principal treasury officer with JP Morgan Chase Bank, London. I have decided to contact you through this medium based on a business proposal, which will be of mutual benefit to both of us. Mr. Andreas James Smith made number of times (Fixed) deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at Ј5,000,000.00 (Five Million British Pounds Sterling Only) in my branch and upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, National Mining Corporation that Mr. Smith died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. On further investigation,I discovered that Mr. Smith did not declare any Next of Kin in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork. This sum of Ј5,000,000.00 is still sitting in my bank vault and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year and no one has come forward for the claim. According to the British laws, at the expiration of six (6) years, the fund will revert to the ownership of the British Government. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you to stand in as the next of kin to Mr.Andreas James smith to enable us claim this fund on your name for safekeeping, rather than being allowed to be reverted to the government treasury, which finally ends up in the hands of some corrupt officials. If this request matches with your inward intention for success and greatness, then you are urged to make a quick response indicating your interest and readiness to participate and work with me to make this successful. Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country. You are advise to respond via email address:- firstname.lastname@example.org or better still call me on my direct phone no. +447023061552 Awaiting your urgent reply. Thanks and regards, James L.Dimon JP MORGAN CHASE BANK, LONDON.
