Dear Friend,

I have a proposal for you, this however is not mandatory nor will I in any
manner compel you to honour the content against your will. I am Hanson
Chife, I work with a bank (one of the leading banks in Africa). Here in
this bank exists a dormant account for the past 8 years which belongs to
an American national who is now late, Mr. John Cuthbertson, who died on 
Alaska Airlines on Alaska Airline Flight 261 in January 31, 2000.

When I discovered that there had been no deposits or withdrawals from this
account for this long period, I decided to carry out a system
investigation and discovered that none of the family members nor relations
of the late person is aware of this account. Now I want an account
overseas where the bank will transfer this fund.

Thereafter, I will destroy all related documents to this account. It is a
careful network and for the past eleven months I have worked out
everything to ensure a hitch-free operation. The amount plus all the
accumulated interest is US$15,500,000.00 (Fifteen million, Five hundred
thousand US Dollars only).

Now my questions are: -

1. Can you handle this project?
2. Can I give you this trust?
3. What will be your commission if you can facilitate the movement of this
fund to your account?

Consider these and get back to me as soon as possible with your full
names, private telephone and fax numbers, corresponding postal address,
etc. Finally, it is my humble request that the information as contained
herein be accorded with every confidentiality and the necessary secrecy it
deserves I expect your urgent response to this request, via my private

Yours Sincerely,
Hanson Chife.
