There is an account opened in this bank in 
1995 and since my inception into office in 2001, nobody has operated on 
this account again, after going through some old files, I discovered 
that if i do not remit this money out urgently, it will be forfeited 
for nothing.How the money came about:The owner of this account was Mr. 
John Hughes who was a foreigner and the manager of Petrochemical 
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 his company does not know 
anything about this account and the amount 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 be 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 business, you will 
be given 35% of the total amount,60% will be for me ,while 5% will be 
for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of 
this transaction. Please you should include your phone and fax number 
for easily communications.
You can contact me through my alternative 
mail address on ( 
Yours Sincerely,
