My Greeting To You, I am Mr. Peter Phillip a Bank Manager here in London. I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that you will not betray me. I believe it is the will of God for us to meet through this means. One Mr. Pedro Brito Rodriguez a US citizen and businessman made a (Fixed deposit) with my bank in 2001 for 48 calendar months, valued at US$14,600,000.00 (Fourteen Million, Six hundred Thousand US Dollars). I was his account officer before I rose to my present position of manager. The due date for this deposit contract was 20th of August 2005. I have tried to locate him through the address and phone numbers he presented to notify him about the maturity of the fixed deposit, but could not reach him. It was during a decisive effort to get hold of him recently that I discovered he was involved in the American Airlines flight 587 which crashed on the 12th November 2001. You will read more stories about the crash on visiting this websites: http://www.answers.com/topic/american-airlines-flight-587 http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/stories.pl?ACCT=104&STORY=/www/story/11-14-2001/0001615907&EDATE= Where the passenger list of victims was mentioned. I have made efforts to locate any of his relation, but without success. Now, a new Financial Law, which takes effect in two month's time, triplets that any bank account having more than $5,000,000.00 [Five Million US Dollars] will be investigated and the bank shall produce the account owner for clearance. This is a Government measure to check money laundering. If I do not find a way to move this money out of the country immediately, in two month's time, it might be reverted to Government treasury because I cannot provide Mr. Rodriguez. I am seeking your co-operation to present you as the next of kin to the account, so that my bank head quarters will release the funds to you. There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. Let me know how you wish us to share the money, so that both parties will be satisfied. We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response and please, treat this as top secret and my private email address is email@example.com Regards, Mr. Peter Phillip
