Mr. Fred Timothy.

 I am the Chief Accountant officer in African Development Bank (ADB).I am writing following an 
oppurtunity in my office that will be of imense 
benefit to both of us. 

 In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $5,000,000 (Five Million United states dollars) 
in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr. Morris Thompson an American 
citizen who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which 
crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only daughter. You shall read more about the 
crash on visiting this website. and 

 Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relatves to 
come over and claim his money because the Bank cannot release the funds unless somebody applies for 
it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking 

 Unfortunately I learnt that his supposed next of kin being his only daughter died along with him 
in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for the claim. It is 
therefore upon this discovery that I and two other officials in this department now decided to do 
business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for 
safety keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we donít 
want this money to go back into  Government treasury as unclaimed bill.

 We agreed that 20% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, while the ballance will be 
for me and my colleagues. I will visit your country for the disbursement according to the 
percentages indicated above once this money gets into your account.  Please be honest to me and 
trust is our watchword in this transaction. 

 Note this transaction is confidential and  risk free.  As soon as you receive this mail you should 
contact me by return mail whether or not you are willing to enter into this deal. In the event you 
are not interested, I sincerely ask that you disregard this email and tell no one about it. I am 
very careful on truncating my banking career should you mention this to someone else. I hope you 
can be trusted in this regard.

Please note that all necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you has been 
finalised. We will discuss much in details when I do receive your response.Please in your response 
include your telephone number and fax number for a better communication between us.

Best regards,
Mr. Fred Timothy.
