Attn: Sir/Madam,

I got your contact details from the United Kingdom information on-line service in my private program search on the internet for a reputable company or individual to assist me sincerely & confidentially and your profiles are very satisfying, so I decided to contact you immediately.
My name is MR. MERVYN ALLISTER KING; I am the auditor and head of computer department of a prime bank here in United Kingdom.

There is an account opened in this bank in 1997 and since my inception into office in 2001, nobody has operated in this account. I have the confidence to look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable to handle this important transaction, in order to transfer out 3,000,000.00 (Three Million Pounds Sterling) after going through some old files, I discovered that if I do not remit this money out urgently, it will be forfeited for nothing. And I will use my position and influence to effect the legal approval and onward transfer of this fund into your account with appropriate clearance from the foreign payment department. You will stand to get 30% while 5% will be for the tax and miscellaneous expenses and 65% will be for me. I expect your urgent response for further details upon your acceptance of this proposal. God bless.

Sincerely yours,
Mr. Mervyn Allister King.
