Compliments of the day,

Permit me to introduce myself to you. My name is Anthony Watson, Auditor and Accountant and Non 
Executive Director of the above Lloyds Banking Group Plc London , United Kingdom. I came to know 
about you in my private search for a reliable person/company to handle an important assignment on 
behalf of myself.

PROPOSITION: A German Andreas Karl, a property magnate had in our Bank the sum of Ј30,758,000 
(Thirty, Million Seven Hundred and Fifty Eight Thousand British Pounds Sterling) in a domiciliary 
account. Unfortunately, he died in an auto crash accident in Paris on a holidays. Efforts had been 
made by the management of my bank through the German Embassy to contact any of the deceased next of 
Kin but to no avail. We later discovered that he died with all his Family in the crash. Given the 
skeletal information available to the bank, it has so far been impossible to reach any of the 
relatives. The situation left for the Management is to declare the deceased account dormant and 
revert the funds to trading for interest to the Bank. In order to avoid this development, I now 
seek your approval to have you stand as a distant relative to Andreas Karl,so that the money would 
be released and transfer to you.

All documents and proofs to enable you get the money will be carefully packaged once I receive your 
consent on this proposal. I shall apply for a leave as soon as the funds get into your reliable 
account to come to your country for sharing and investments which you will assist me in doing. May 
I assure you that this is safe and risk-free, as I have taken care of all necessary modalities to 
ensure a hitch-free movement. Thank You for taking out the time in reviewing this request, as I 
will stand by the strength of your response, and look forward to speaking with you soon. I have 
reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me.

Best Regards,
Anthony Watson
