Please accept my sincere apologizes if my email does not meet your business
or personal ethics. I will first introduce myself as Mr. Bob, a staff in
the Private Clients Section of a well-known bank, here in London, England.

One of our accounts, with holding balance of Å15,000,000 (Fifteen Million
Pounds Sterling) has been dormant and last operated seven years ago. From
my investigations, the owner of the said account, a foreigner by name John
Shumejda died on the 4th of January 2002 in a plane crash in Birmingham;
for details on the crash you can view this CNN website
for details on the tragic crash.

Since then, nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money,
as he has no family member that has any knowledge as to the existence of
either the account or the funds; and also Information from the National Immigration
also states that he was single on entry into the UK.

I have confidently discussed this issue with some of the bank officials and
we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. We therefore
propose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of these
funds from the deceased and funds released to you after necessary processes
have been followed.

This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is legitimate
and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal

On your interest, let me hear from you.

Warm Regards,

Mr. Bob.
