There is an account opened in this bank in 1995 and since my
inception into office in 2001, nobody has operated on this
again, after going through some old files, I discovered that
if i 
do not remit this money out urgently, it will be forfeited
nothing.How the money came about:The owner of this account
was Mr. 
John Hughes who was a foreigner and the manager of
service here in London, a chemical engineer by profession
and he 
died since 1995.And then, since 2001,nobody knows about this
account or anything concerning it, the account has no other 
beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that
company does not know anything about this account and the
involved is (15,000,000.00)pounds sterling.

I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money
can not 
be approved to any local bank here in London, but can only
approved to any foreign account because the money is pounds 
sterling? And the former owner of the account is John Hughes
and he 
was a foreigner too.Finally, at the conclusion of this
you will be given 35% of the total amount,60% will be for me
5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred
during the 
process of this transaction. Please you should include your
and fax number for easily communications.

You can contact me through my alternative mail address on

Yours Sincerely,

Auditor Jim Harry
