Dearest I Mr.Hugo Garcia the manager of LA CAIXA BANCO ESPAÑA. I am writing following an opportunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $40.Million Euro (Forty Million Europeans Euro.) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr. Morris Thompson an American who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only daughter. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relatives to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. Unfortunately I learn that his supposed next of kin being his only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and two other officials in this department 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 and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it. We don’t want this money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that such money remained after seven years the money will be transferred into banking treasury as unclaimed funds. We agreed that 35% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, while the balance will be for my colleagues and me. I will visit your country for the disbursement according to the percentages indicated above once this money gets into your account. Please be honest to me. Note this transaction is confidential and risk free. As soon as you receive this mail you should contact me through my e-mail address.(email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org><http://us.f584.mail.yahoo.com/ym/Compose?Toemail@example.com)> Telephone : 0034 685 365 24 /Fax:034 911 311 88. Please note that all necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you as has been finalized. We will discuss much in details when I do receive your response. Thanks and waiting for your urgent reply. Manager of La caixa Bank. Mr. Hugo Garcia.
