With due respect and humility, I write to you this proposal.I am the Manager =
of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance  department of Caja De Fortuna =
Banco in Madrid. I am writing following the impressive information about you, =
l got your contact in my quest for a reliabe and capable person to assist me =
in this deal.

Though I know that a business of this magnitude will make any one =
apprehensive, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the =
day. We have decided to contact you by email due to the urgency of this =
"deal", as we have been reliably informed of your honesty and ability in a =
transaction of this nature.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$30m dollars (THIRTY =
Million US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer =
(MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany) who died along with his entire =
family in July 2000 in a plane crash.

About his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come forward 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 and policies but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed =
next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the ugly plane crash =
leaving nobody behind for the claims. It is therefore upon this discovery =
that I have decided to make this businness proposal to you to transact this =
DEAL with you and to act as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for =
safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming forth and l dont =
want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.

According to our Banking policies and guideline here which stipulates that if =
such money remained unclaimed after five years,the money will automatically =
be transfered into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. My request for a =
foreigner to ac t as next of kin in this business is by the fact that the =
customer was a foreigner and a citizen of this country cannot stand or put =
claims as next of kin to a foreigner. l agreed to offer 30% of the total fund =
to you, for your assistance, to act as the next of Kin to the foreigner,to =
provide account, 10% will be for reimbursement of any expenses incured during =
the curse of the transaction.

There after, I and my family will visit your country for disbursement and for =
investment in your country. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of =
this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or =
next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account =
number, your private telephone and fax number for easier and effective
communication and location where the money will be transfer. Upon receipt of =
your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I =
will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and =
that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements =
have been made for the transfer.

 Let truth and honesty be our watchword in this transaction while I look =
forward to receiving your immediate response through my security contact =
information below.

Yours faithfully,
David Ephraim
