I am writing following an oppurtunity in my office
that will be of imense benefit to both of us.
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of
£10.5million British Pounds Sterling (Ten million five
hundred thousand British Pounds) in an account that
belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr.
Morris Thompson an American who unfortunately lost his
life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261
which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife
and only daughter. You shall read more about the crash
on visiting this site.
Now the bank has been waiting for any of the relatives
to come-up for the claim but nobody has done that.I
personally has been unsuccessful in locating the
relatives for 2 years now, I seek your consent to
present you as the next of kin / Will Beneficiary to
the deceased so that the proceeds of this account
valued at £10.5Million British Pounds Stering can be
paid to you. This will be disbursed or shared in these
percentages, 50% to me and 50% to you. I will secure
all necessary legal documents that can be used to back
up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest
Co-operation, Confidentiality and Trust to enable us
see this transaction through.
I guarantee you that this will be executed under a
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any
breach of the law.
