Hello and good day !! I am in a privilege position to make both of us benefit 15.5 Million Pounds from a UK-based bank where I am a staff. I need a very trustworthy,sincere and reliable foreign partner in order to achieve success.Be assured that due process shall be followed to procure legal documents backing up this transaction. The total sum of 15.5 million pounds will be transfered from an account belonging to a late customer who died with his entire immediate family,including his next-of-kin,in a plane crash in year 2000 in the New York bound AIR FRANCE concord plane crash. For more information and pictorial details regarding the crash please visit : http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating any other relatives up to this moment, I am contacting you to assist and collaborate with me in repatriating all the money left behind by late property magnate. I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally possible to use my position to manipulate to make you the next-of-kin. This is achievable if you allow me to present you (as the next-of-kin to the deceased) to the management of the branch of bank so that the proceeds of the account can be processed in your name and subsequently be paid to you. But all I require from you is your honest co-operation to enable us see this business through.Trust me, as the account officer to the deceased I hereby assure you that all modalities have been properly worked out and I propose we share the proceeds in the ratio of 60% to me and 40% to you. All I require from you to commence the immediate process are just the following : (1) Full names (2) Contact address (3) Phone & fax numbers (4) your profile. Awaiting your response to enable me give you more details & procedures to be adopted. Very Sincerely Terry Grant Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
