Dear Friend, I am a staff of one of the biggest bank here in italy, and I am writting you in respect of this great oppurtunity in my office that will be of imense benefit to both of us. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $22.5million Dollars (twenty two million five hundred thousan Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr. Morris Thompson an American who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31th, 2000 including his wife and only daughter. You shall read more about the crash on visiting this site. http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska. airlines.list/ and http://www.nativefederation.org/history/ people/mThompson.html Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relatives to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. Unfortunately I learnt that his supposed next of kin being his only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and two other officials in this department now decided to make business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go back into govnment treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and gidelines here stipulates that such money remained after five years the money will be ransferred into banking treasury as unclaimed funds. We agreed that 20% of this money will be for you as foreign partners while the balance will be for me and mmy colleagues. I will visit your country for the disbursement according to the percentages indicated above once this money gets into your account. Please be honest to me and my colleagues trust is our watchword in this transaction. Note this transaction is confidential and risk free. As soon as you receive this mail.please do your very best to get in touch with our (FOREIGN PAYMENT DIRECTOR) TEL:+39 3473578751 email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org Please note that all necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds has been finalised. Our Foreign Payment Director DR HENSCHAW WILSON will give you a specific instruction on what todo. Please in your response include your telephone number for easy communication between us.
