Dear Friend,

I am Mr.David Rice, the Auditor General, Santander Bank UK . In the course of my auditing, I 
discovered a 
floating fund in an account, which was opened in 1990 at Abbey National Bank which was bought over 
by Santander 
group belonging to a dead foreigner who died in 1999. Every effort made to track any member of his 
family or next of 
kin has since failed; hence I got in contact with you to stand as his next of kin since you bear 
the same last name. 
He died leaving no heir or a will.

My intention is to transfer this sum of $5.5M in the aforementioned account to a safe account 
overseas. I am 
therefore proposing that you quietly partner with me and provide an account or set up a new one 
that will serve the 
purpose of receiving this fund. For your assistance in this venture, I am ready to part with a good 
percentage of 
the entire funds. After going through the deceased person's records and files, I discovered that:

(1) No one has operated this account since 1999
(2) He died without an heir; hence the money has been floating.
(3) No other person knows about this account and there was no known beneficiary.

If I do not remit this money urgently, it would be forfeited and subsequently converted to 
company's funds, which 
will benefit only the directors of my firm. This money can be approved to you legally as with all 
the necessary 
documentary approvals in your name. However, you would be required to show some proof of claim, 
which I will provide 
you with and also guide you on how to make your applications.

Please do give me a reply so that I can send you detailed information on the modalities of my 
proposition. I 
completely trust you to keep this proposition absolutely confidential. Kindly forward your 
telephone number where I 

can reach you easily. I look forward to your prompt response.

Best Regards,
Mr.David Rice.
