I work for BT & Co., a U.K. law firm that arranges asset management and
storage of special valuables for reputable clients.

We have information concerning of the availability of a deposit box with a
Vaults Storage Company which has been listed in your name. A benefactor made
you the beneficiary of the deposit box which contains US15,000,000.00. The
lease on the Safe deposit box has expired and no further rental payments or
claims have since been made since dormancy.

Financial assets are considered unclaimed when contact with an owner or
beneficiary is lost for an extended period and the lease expired without
further rental payments or claims. This often happens due to a name change
after marriage or divorce, an unreported change of address or expired postal
forwarding order,incomplete, illegible records and result of computer and
clerical errors. When owners or thier heirs fail to claim an asset over a
specified number of years known as the dormancy period, those left holding
the money: banks, stock brokers, utilities, employers, life insurance
companies and others - transfer custody to a special trust account in a
process known as escheat.

The funds contained in the deposit box is from the National Lottery which
has made over 855 lucky individuals millionaires since its inception in
1994. Of the more than £11 billion paid out in prize money, £300 million in
National Lottery winnings have gone unclaimed. National Lottery prizes have
to be claimed within 180 days of the draw, or the prize is paid back into
the distribution fund to benefit "good causes." Approximately £34 million is
currently available for claim. Either you have won the lottery but a claim
was not made or was not successful, We can provide legal assistance and
claims administration through the Treasury Solicitor, Department of the
Probate Registry for transfer of ownership of the safe deposit box to you as
the sole and legal beneficiary. After which we will arrange the release of
the safe deposit box to you.

More Information will be provided concerning the deposit box when you get
back to us.

Thank you and I remain
