Dear Sir,

Greetings to your family,
Permit me to use this medium to contact you,as I wish to solicit for your
assistance in the transaction which l strongly  believe will be of mutual
benefit to both of us.
I am Mr. David J. Michael,Manager accounts department with Shanghai
Commercial Bank in London,my late customer,an expatriate was killed  in an
unknown circumstances and before his death he had some unclaimed treasury
bills (Bonds) with my bank.

I decided to search for any of my late customer's relative which has been
very difficult to me before those treasury bills  (Bonds) get confiscated
or declared unserviceable by the bank. In 1997 he invested in treasury
bill bonds here in London in  my bank totaling 8.2 million pound sterling
(8.2 Million)  which was due to be collected in 2004 with accrued
On my yearly appraisal of my customer at the turn of every year, I
discovered that his investment is overdue for retrieval. I put up series
of mail to him which were sent back uncollected. I later discovered that
he passed on along with his wife and  only child in the tragic swissair
flight 111 air crash  in September 1998.

I have since expected his next of kin or relatives to come forward to
claim his money  but all attempts to trace his next of  kin or relations
over the years has been fruitless and all the  bank routine notifications
to his contact address were sent  back uncollected.
I am now fully convinced that no one would turn up to execute the Letter
of Administration to claim his funds, and having  satisfied all legal
requirements of  next-of-Kin notifications,I decided to contact you to
come in as his next of kin.

I will prepare every operation that will assist your claim, The treasury
bills (Bonds) will be released to you within 10  working days after you
have filed in for claims application to the bank.
For your assistance you shall have 40% of the entire sum. This transaction
is risk free and and as  the director of operations so be rest assured
that all documents to enable you get this fund as the next of kin will be
carefully worked out.Do not be bothered that you are not related in any
way to him as I am in position to afix your name as the next of kin.
Kin to my late client.
Kindly  send your reply enclosing your Full Names,Mailing Address and
Phone Number to my email address (  for
confidentiality, to enable me talk to you before I send you the
certificate of deposit and other relevant information relating to this
fund transfer.
