I am DR PHIL EDWARDS,a member of Independent Committee of Eminent Persons (ICEP),Switzerland. ICEP 
is charged with the responsibility of finding bank accounts in Switzerland belonging to non-Swiss 
indigenes,which have remained dormant since World War II. It may interest you to know that in July 
of 1997, the Swiss Bankers' Association published a list of dormant accounts originally opened by 
non-Swiss citizens.These accounts had been dormant since the end of World War II (May 9, 1945).Most 
Belonged to Holocaust victims.The continuing efforts of the Independent Committee of Eminent 
Persons ICEP) have since resulted in the discovery of additional dormant accounts - 54,000 in 
December 1999.The published lists contain all 
types of dormant accounts, including interest-bearing savings accounts,securities accounts, safe 
deposit boxes, custody accounts, and non-interest-bearing transaction accounts,Numbered accounts 
are also included. Interest is paid on accounts that were interest bearing when established.The 
Claims Resolution Tribunal (CRT) handles processing of all claims on accounts due non-Swiss 
citizens. I discovered a dormant account of Late Mr.John Scott, with a credit balance of 
$50,000,000.00 US Dollars plus accumulated interest. The beneficiary was murdered during the 
holocaust era,leaving no WILL and no possible records for trace of heirs. The Claims Resolution 
Tribunal (CRT) has been mandated to report all unclaimed funds for permanent closure of accounts 
and transfer of existing credit Balance into the treasury of Switzerland government as provided by 
the law for management of assets of deceased beneficiaries who died inter-state (living no wills). 
Being a top executive at ICEP, I have all secret details and necessary contacts for claim of the 
funds without any hitch. Due to the sensitive nature of my job, I need a foreigner to HELP claim 
the funds. All that is required is for you to provide me with your details for processing of the 
necessary legal and administrative documents for laying a valid claim for transfer of the funds to 
Kindly provide me with your full name, address, and telephone/fax. I will help since I am an 
insider, monitoring the transaction from here to make sure that the fund is transferred to a 
secured bank account, numbered account in your Bank, of which you will provide and also be capable 
of accessing the funds gradually and transferring to your country and other banks of your choice in 
the world.
My share will be 70% and your share will be 30% of the total amount.There are no risks of any sort 
involved either now or in future. You can find additional information about unclaimed funds through 
the Internet at the following websites:
The Holocaust Claims Processing Office has put funds in Escrow waiting submission of valid claims 
for necessary disbursement. I find myself privileged to have this information and this may be a 
great opportunity for a lifetime of success without risks. Due to Security reasons, kindly forward 
your reply via my private email address. 
Thank you for your prompt response.
