Good Day,

Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics although, I wish to 
use this medium to get in touch with you first because it's one of fastest means of communication. 

I am Mr.Muhammed Allen, an external auditor of a well known bank here in the United Kingdom. 

During the course of our auditing ,I discovered a dormant accounts with holding balance of 
Â26,000,000 (Twenty Six Million British Pounds Sterling), which has not been operated for the past 
six years, after going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the 
account died without a heir hence the money is floating and if I did not remit this money out 
urgently it will be forfeited for nothing  and the government of UK will confiscate the fund for 
their personal use, which I donât want such incident to happen to me being that this is a great 
opportunity and such opportunity comes once in a life time.

From my investigations and confirmation, the owner of the account was a foreigner by name John 
Shumejda and he died on the 4th of January 2002 in a plane crash in Birmingham; you can view this 
CNN link for details on the crash.

Website:( ) 

Since then, nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money, as he has no family 
member that has any knowledge about the existence of the account or the fund, and also information 
gotten from the National Immigration also states that he was single on entry into UK. 

After detailed investigations on the deceased and his account, I found out there is no mention of 
any heirs or family member on the account documents in the Bank records, therefore the money was 
lodged secretly into the account.

I have made necessary plans to transfer the fund out with your sincerely support. I have also moved 
the funds into what the bank call Escrow Holding Account with no beneficiary. Meanwhile as you know 
I cannot be directly connected to this money for obvious reasons .I will compute your particulars 
as the beneficiary of the fund deposited in the branch.

I am revealing this to you with belief that you will never let me down in this business, so please 
reply urgently . I need your strong assurance that you will never let me down in this business 
proposition either now or in the future.

This transaction is totally risk and troubles free as the fund is legitimate and does not originate 
from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act. 

Finally, I will give you 35% for your coporation,5% will be for expenses both parties might have 
incurred during the process of transferring.  
You should Send your private telephone and fax number including the full details of an account 
where you like the money to be transfer so that my lawyer will write an application to the bank on 
your behalf for the release of the fund immediately to your bank account . Even an empty account 
can serve as long as it can recieve money it's still OK. On receipt of your response I will furnish 
you with detailed clarification as it relates to this mutual benefit transaction.
I look forward to hear from you as soon as possible .

Best Regards, 
Mr. Muhammed Allen
