Barclays Bank PLC. Knightsbridge International Banking Centre PO Box 391 38 Hans Crescent Knightsbridge London SW1X 0LZ. EMAIL: email@example.com PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL. firstname.lastname@example.org 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. __________________________________________________________________________ http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ http://archives.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.04/index.html __________________________________________________________________________ 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.
