Attention: Sir/Madam,
My name is Mr 
Bent Tony, the Manager Credit and Foreign bills of Regent Bank 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 investigation;

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 Thousand 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.

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 opportunity. 
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.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr.Bent Tony,
Manager Credit 
and Foriegn Bills.
