From: The Accountant, Gulf Bank International, 4 Enfield Road, Etham. London. Dear Friend, My name is Sir. John Dickson. I am the accountant of the Gulf Bank International London.I am a British citizen married with two kids.I am writing to solicit your assistance in the noble transfer of £1.800,000.00 (One Million, Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds). This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the accountant made as profit during the last year. I have already submitted an approved end of the last year report for the year 2009 to my Head Office here in Hammer smith and they will never know of this Excess. I have since then, placed this amount of £1.800,000.00 (One Million, Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds) on a SUSPENSE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary. As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money that's why I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part with 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I don't need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer to your nominated bank account anywhere you feel safer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund. If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response. You can contact me on my private e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: Please do include your telephone numbers on your e-mail to me for faster communicaion. Best regards, Sir. John Dickson
