Compliments of the Day, 

Dear Sir, 

I am Mr. Andrew Howell, a staff with Barclays Bank Plc UK. I decided to reach you directly to 
solicit your assistance and Guidelines in making a business investment and transfer a huge amount 
of GBP 15,000,000.00 (Fifteen Million British Pounds Sterling Only). The fund is legitimate and has 
all confirmable legal documents to back this payment in your name legitimately. Thus, I need to 
solicit your permission, assistance and support; I propose an offer of 40% of the total amount to 
you . I presently work as an Account Director and in charge with all Offshore Mortgage & Services 
of our overseas brokers/investors with Barclays Bank Plc, London.  The account has been dormant, 
and last operated many years ago. Nobody has done anything as regards to the claiming of this 
money, because the account owner has no family member or friends that have any knowledge, as to the 
existence of either the account or the funds; I have decided to find a reliable partner to
 deal with. My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin and 
beneficiary of this late client, that the proceeds of this account valued a huge sum shall be paid 
to you, and then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed percentage.

As at this moment, I am constrained to issue more details about this business until your response 
is received. Please take out a moment of your very busy Schedule today, to respond back if you are 
interested. Please send your response and direct telephone numbers via my email, for further 
explanations on source of funds and details of funds transfer. I wish for utmost confidentiality in 
handling this transaction. You can write me back with my private email address 
( ) OR ( ) .

I await your immediate response,
Sincerely Yours,
Mr. Andrew Howell.
