Dear Partner, In order to transfer out (fifteen-million pounds sterling) from our bank here i have the courageto look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable for this important transaction,believing that you will neverlet me down either now or in future.I am Mr Jim Harry the auditor and head of computing department of a bank here in London, united Kingdom. 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 ammount,60% will be for me ,while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incured during the process of this transaction.Please you should include your phone and fax number for easily communications. Yours Sincerely, Auditor Jim Harry
