Attention: Sir/Madam,

My name is Mr. Salami Adebayo, The Manager, Credit and Foreign bills of Barclays
Bank London Plc. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of our bank
with account number 14-255-114 whose name is Late Mr. Morris Thompson, an
American by citizen who perished in a plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight
261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only daughter.
You shall read more about the crash on visiting this site, which I got during
my investigation.
Since the demise of this our customer, I personally has watched with keen
interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has
come to claim his funds of US$ 6.M (Six Million United States Dollars), which
has been with our branch for a very long time. On this note, I decided to
seek for whom his name shall be used as the Next of Kin as no one has come
up to be the next of kin. And the banking ethics here does not allow such
money to stay more than Ten Years, because the money will be recalled to
the bank treasury as unclaimed fund after this period.
In view of this I got your contact through a trade journal when I was making
a research on a foreigner I will use in this great opportunity. For your
assistant I will give you 30% of the total amount then 10% has been mapped
out to donate to the motherless baby home, while the remaining 60% will be
for my partner and me. Upon the receipt of your response, I will send you
by fax or e-mail the letter of application, which you will type, sign and
send back to our bank to enable us start this transaction. I will not fail
to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free and that you should
not entertain any fear as all modalities for the smooth and easy transfer
of this fund has been finalized, this transaction will be completed within
five banking days of receiving your response, after you apply to the bank
as a relation to the deceased.
When you receive this letter, Kindly send me an e-mail signifying your decision
for quick communication on my personal email Conclusively, your contacts
are very essential to facilitate communication, so endeavor to enclose your
Telephone, Mobile and fax numbers. Further discussion/elaboration will commence
as soon as I hear or read from you. But do not forget the absolute confidentiality
and mutual trust required in this transaction. Kindly contact me on the above-specified
channels of contact. Thanks and God Bless You.
Yours Truly,
Mr. Salami Adebayo,
Manager Credit and Foreign Bills.
