ing his wife and only daughter.  =20


Go through this site and read more about the crash :-
00/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ Since we got information about  his death=
=2C the bank have been expecting his next of kin or relatives to come over =
and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies fo=
r it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking=
 guidelines. Unfortunately I learnt that his supposed next of kin being his=
 only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with t=
he knowledge of this fund behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this d=
iscovery that i now decided to make business with you and release the money=
 to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping a=
nd subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i don't want t=
his money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed bill since i and=
 you can be able to retrieve it from this bank and share respectively witho=
ut any problem .  =20


The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that such money remained aft=
er ten years the money will be transferred into banking treasury as unclaim=
ed funds=2C I agreed that 35% of this money will be for you as foreign part=
ner=2C while 65% will be for me . I will visit your country for the disburs=
ement according to the percentages indicated above once this money gets int=
o your account. Please be honest =2Csincerity to me and trust is our WATCHW=

eceive this mail you should contact me by return mail. Please note that all=
 necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you has bee=
n finalised.   We will discuss much in details when I do receive your respo=
