REPLY TO COMFIRM YOU RECIEVE THIS My name is Mr Felix Reason, Head Bank of Scotland Treasury Services plc,. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of my bank who perished in Hurricane Katrina struck the American city of New Orleans in September 05 2005 at 07:52PM along with his wife and entire family. Since the demise of this our customer, whom I could not care less about,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$9.5m, [Nine million five Hundred thousand united states dollars] which has been with my branch for a very long time. It is my branch for I sit on it for a long time mmmm..... 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 long period of years,because the money will be recalled to the bank treasury as unclaimed after this period. In view of this I got your contact through my search via business report from r web site to see if you can assist. I will give you 30% of the total sum. Upon the receipt of your response, I bring to your notice that this business is hitch free and that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for fund transfer can be finalized within five banking days,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 including your private Tel/Fax numbers for quick communication. Respectfully submitted, Best Regards, Mr. Felix Reason HOUSE PHONE :+44 703 189 2669 MOBILE :+44 703 181 7432
