                  REF: Your Pending Fund Release.


             Above subject matter refered.

I am Mr. R. C. Picot the Group Chief Accounting Officer and Group General Manager of the HSBC Bank PLC.

My Department is mandated by UK Apex Bank to monitor and control the affairs of all banks and financial institutions in UK concerned with foreign payment claims. My duties include the approval of funds for transfer or remittance within banks both domestically and internationally in line with foreign claim settlements. It also involves reimbursement of unclaimed or fraudulent claims of funds back to the Government.

In my list are funds which could not be transferred to some beneficiaries/nominated accounts as these have been identified either as ghost accounts, unclaimed deposits, over-invoiced sum etc. We have files before us, the data's are correct and un-tampered with as it is my duty to recommend the transfer of these surplus funds to the UK Finance Department via the Apex Bank as unclaimed deposits. Funds from affected transactions cannot be released due to meddlesomeness of agents and fraudulent activities sorounding such transactions.

My contact to you is based on the instructions I received from the Foreign Debts reconciliation department of the UK Apex Bank to submit the list of payment reports and audited reports of revenues for final disbursement to the appropriate Government Agencies and the UK Foreign Reserve.

From this surplus of unclaimed funds being ploughed back into the Government coffers, I have completed arrangments to remit to you the sum Sixteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars {$16.5M USD} with a belief that we can have a deal/agreement. I have made up every necessary approval and set apart the mentioned sum from the unclaimed funds as your due money waiting release to you. This fund MUST be paid to you through a foreign correspondent bank and every corresponent MUST be confidential. Everything is set, what is needed is your response indicating interest for me to direct you on how to proceed to receive the money.

Confirm your interest with your phone number and I will get back to you ASAP for further advice. If I don't hear from you soon, I will find a way to return the money into the mainstream and discontinue the idea.
You can also reach me on my private number at +44 703 591 456

Have a pleasant day.

Yours sincerely.
Mr. R. C. Picot.
