The sender was, although it may have been spoofed.

I am Mr. Gilbert Smith, Branch Manager,Asset Trust Finance,London.

Good day, 

I am contacting you because of a business concerning a huge sum of money
from a deceased deposit in the Finance company where I work here in England. Though I know that a 
transaction of this magnitude
will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that
all will be well at the end of the day. I actually decided to contact
you due to the urgency of this transaction.

On January 6th 2000, one Mr. Claude Brian Best, an American National,a
consultant/contractor with Gardiner & Theobald,a leading firm of project and cost management 
consultants, made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit,valued at 9,500,000.00(Nine Million,Five Hundred 
Thousand Pounds) for twelve calender months in my Bank Branch.

Upon Maturity, we sent a routine notification to his forwarding address
but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we
discovered from his contract employers (Gardiner & Theobald) that Mr.
Claude Brian Best died from an automobile accident. On further
investion, it was discovered that he died without making a WILL and all
attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.

On further investigations, it was discovered that Late Mr. Claude Brian
Best did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official
documents, including his Bank Deposit paper work here at the Bank.

The total sum, 9,500,000.00 is still in my bank and the interest is
being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to 
claim it.

In accordance with the Federal banking Laws and constitution, at the
expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of
the Government if nobody applies as the next of Kin to claim the funds.

Consequently, I shall present you as a foreign partner to stand in as
the next of kin to late Mr. Claude Brian Best so that you and I can
benefit from the fruits of this old man's labour.

Upon acceptance of this proposal, I shall send to you the Asset Trust Finance "Next of Kin Payment 
Application Form" as well as
detailed information on how this deal would be transacted.

We shall employ the services of a solicitor for the drafting of the LAST WILL & TESTAMENT of Late 
Mr. Claude Brian Best and to obtain all other relevant papers in your name for the necessary 
documentations for
payment approval in my bank headquarters in your favour.

The money will be shared in the ratio:

Sixty percent for me, thirty five percent for you and five percent for
any arising contigencies during the course of this transaction.

I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any 
breach of the law as I will use my position as the Bank's Branch Manager to secure approvals and 
guarantee the successful execution of this transaction.

Please be informed that your utmost confidentiality is required. If this interests you, please 
reply me immediately via the private email address below and please include your private telephone 
number for voice contact and fax number so I can provide you with more details and relevant
documents that will help you understand the transaction.

Awaiting your urgent reply.


Best regards,               
Mr. Gilbert Smith
