Dear friend,
I am Alex Were London-based kenyan, a staff of a reputable Bank in London, United Kingdom. In my 
department I discover an abandoned sum of  (3.5 Million British Pound (GBP) in an account that 
belongs to one of our foreign customer a (filipino) who died along with his family in plane crash. 
It is therefore upon this discovery that i now decided to make this business proposal to you and 
release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for the safety and 
subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it.
I agree that 50% of this money will be for you and 50% would be for me. Then after the money is 
been transferred into your account, i will visit your country for an investment under your kind 
You have to contact my Bank directly as the real next of kin of this deceased account with next of 
kin application form which i will send to you immediately i hear from you.I am waiting for your 
urgent respond to enable us proceed further for the transfer.
Yours faithfully
Alex Were
