Dear Sir/Madam,

I have picked-up the trust and courage to write you this letter with divine confidence that you are 
a reliable and honest person who will be capable for this important business transaction believing 
also that you will never let me down either now or in the future.

My name is Allan Smith, a senior Auditing Officer with the NAT WEST BANK of LONDON, UK. There is an 
account opened in this bank in 1998 and since then nobody has operated on account again. After 
going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this money out  
urgently it would be forfeited to the government as dormant account.

The owner of this account is Mr.John Hixon, a foreigner, he was a miner at Kruger Gold Company, a 
geologist by profession, and he died since 2002 in a plane crash. No other person knows about this 
account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary  and my investigation 
proved to me as well that this company does not know anything about this account and the amount 
involved is the sum of US$55MILLION. I am contacting you based on the fact that you are a foreigner 
because this money can only be approved for payment to a foreigner. I know that this proposal will 
come to you as a surprise as we don't know ourselves before.

Although we will still have to meet after the successful  transfer of the fund into any of your 
designated bank account. I have involved a very senior official in the operational department, and 
we have agreed that after the transfer of the money into your account, you shall be entitled to 30% 
of the total sum, my colleagues and I will have 60% while 10% will be used to reimburse any 
expenses incurred.

All necessary precautions have been taken to ensure a risk free situation on the side of both 
parties. Please note that this deal can only take place on the following conditions;

1. You will provide the bank account and other relevant particulars/information for easy and onward 
Remittance of the fund.

2. Absolute confidentiality and sincerity will be required and guaranteed, considering our 
positions in the bank.

3. Assurance that our own share will be released to us in good faith when this money finally gets 
into your account.

All things being equal, this transaction will be within 7 working days as soon as we hear from you. 
Please treat with utmost confidentiality. Contact me as quickly as possible.

 Thanks and God bless you. Expecting your urgent response vie email.

Best Regards,
Mr. Allan Smith
