Dear Friend,

I am Mr.Philip Clive Senior Audit Officer of Natwest Bank Group UK.Natwest Bank London.I am writing 
following an opportunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of 20.5million  British Pounds Sterling(Twenty 
million five hundred thousand British Pounds) 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 31 2000,including his wife and only daughter.

You shall read more about the crash on visiting this site. 

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relatves 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 my coleague 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 
Government treasury as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that such money remained after ten years the money 
will be transferred into banking treasury as unclaimed funds.

We agreed that 35% of this money will be for you as foreign partner,while the balance will be for 
me and my colleague.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 trust is our 
watchword in this transaction.

Note this transaction is confidential and risk free.As soon as you receive this mail you should 
contact me by return mail.Please note that all necessary arrangement for the smooth release of 
these funds to you has been finalised.We will discuss much in details when I do receive your 

If you are interested in this project contact me for further directives.

Best regards,

Mr.Philip Clive
