Attention: Sir/Madam,

My name is Mr. Henry Osita, the Manager 
Credit and Foreign bills of United Bank for Africa Plc. I am writing in 
respect of a foreign customer of our bank with account number 14-255-
114 whose name is Late Mr. Morris Thompson, an american by citizen who 
perished in a 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 site which I got during my 
and Since the demise of this our customer, 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$15.5M (Fiftheen Million 
Five Hundred Thoudsand United States Dollars) which has been with our 
branch for a very long time. 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 more than Ten Years, because the money will be recalled to the 
bank treasury as unclaimed fund after this period.

In view of this I 
got your contact through a trade journal when i was making a research 
on a foreigner i will use in this great upportunity. For your assistant 
i will give you 20% of the total amount then 10% has been maped out to 
donate to the motherless baby home, while the remaining 70% will be for 
me and my partner. Upon the receipt of your response, I will send you 
by fax or e-mail the letter of application which you will type sign and 
send back to our bank to enable us start this transaction.I will not 
fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free and that 
you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for the smooth and 
easy transfer of this fund has been finalized, this transaction will be 
complited within five banking days of recieving your response, 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. 


Mr. Henry Osita,
