Dear Friend,

Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet
your personal Ethics. I introduce myself as Mr. Thomas Coker staff in
the accounts management Section of a well-known bank here in the United

One of our accounts with holding balance of Â15,000,000
(Fifteen Million British Pounds) has been dormant and last operated in
the past 3 years. From my investigations and confirmations, the owner
of this account is a Foreigner by name Gerald Stone died on the 4th of
January 2002 on a planecrash in Birmingham here in UK.

Since then
nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money as he
has no family Member who is aware of the existence of either the
accountnor the Funds.Information from the National Immigration also
statesthat he was single on entry into the UK.

I have
confidentiallydiscussed this issue with some of the bank officials and
we haveagreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. We
thuspropose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of
these funds from the deceased and funds released to you after due
processes have been followed.

This transaction is totally free of risk
and troubles as the fund is Legitimate and does not originate from
drug, money laundry, terrorismor any other Illegal act. On your
interest, let me hear from you.
