                                             RE: NEXT OF KIN
Dear Friend,

Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics, but let it remains as top secret for only you and I.
I will introduce myself as Mr Steve, a staff in the Accounts Management Section of a well-known bank in Europe.

One of our accounts with holding balance of US$20,000,000 (Twenty Millions US Dollars) has been Dormant and has not been operated for the past 5 years.

From my investigation and confirmation, the owner of this account a foreigner, died in August 2000 and since his death nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money because he has no family members who were aware of the existence of neither the account nor the funds, also, information from the National Immigration stated that he was also single on entry into Europe.

I had discussed this matter with some of my bank Top Officials and we have agreed to find a Reliable Partner to deal with. We thus propose to do business with you, standing in as the NEXT OF KIN to the deceased, and funds will be released to you after due processes have been followed and neccessary documentation to back this up will be presented.

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 act.

Also, after a successful completion of this transaction, we intend to give you 30% and 10% for whatever expenses that we both may incur, while 60% of the total amount will be for us which we also intend to invest in your country in any good business venture that you will introduce.

If you are interested, send me the following information via email to me so that we can start processing this transaction: -

1 Complete Names (First and Last Names)
2 Full Address.
3. Phone and Fax numbers (for proper communication.)
4. Occupation, Age and Marital Status.

Thank you for your understanding and reply to

Mr. Steve
