READ THIS EMAIL AND REPLY IMMIDIATELY Greetings to you, This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great friends/ business partners. I am Mr Guillermo Barba Chavez, currently Head of Corporate Affairs Department with a reputable bank here in Spain Banco La Caixa. I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that I can trust you with the information I am about to reveal to you. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On June 5th, 2000, a German business tycoon Mr. Christian Eich made a (Fixed deposit) for 60 calendar months, valued at US$ (Two Million Five hundred Thousand Dollars only) in my bank and I happen to be his account officer before I was moved to my present position recently. The maturity date for this deposit contract was last 3rd of April 2008. Before this date, I have tried my possible best to locate a Next of Kin to late Mr. Christian Eich, but all efforts proved abortive, because all his family, including his Son In-Law and children died in the plane crash of Concorde Air France Flight AF4590 which took place on 25th July 2000, some months after he did the deposit in my bank. You can read more story about the plane crash by visiting this website; http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/859479.stm With the recent change of government in my country and with their efforts to support the United Nations in checkmating terrorism aid in Spain. By end of Apirl next year, the Government will pass a new Financial Control Law which will give the Government authority to interrogate account owners of above $2.5 million Dollars to explain the source of the funds, making sure it is not for terrorism support. If I do not move this money out of the country immediately, by october this year the Government will definitely confiscate the money, because my bank cannot provide the account owner to explain the source of the money since he is late. If you accept to work with me, I want you to state how you wish us to share the funds in percentage, so that both parties will be satisfied. I shall explain to you in details how we shall handle the transaction once I receive your response. Thanking you in advance and may God bless you. Please, treat with utmost confidentiality. I shall send you copy of the deposit slip issued to Mr.Christian Eich when the deposit was made for your perusal. I wait your urgent response. Please reply to this email: firstname.lastname@example.org Regards, Guillermo Barba Chavez
