Greetings from Barr. Grace Williams I am writing this letter personally to you, though I don't know you in person. I got your email contact through my personal search via the internet, I am pleased with such information about you and I have no doubt of your personality to handle this huge financial transaction. My main reason of contacting you is to establish a good relationship that will be of great benefit to both of us at the end. My name is Mrs. Grace Williams, An attorney to Late Mr. John Williams who was a citizen of USA. Late Mr. John Williams was an international Oil dealer and before he died, he deposited the sum of 10 million British pounds in our bank on July 12th 1998. Unfortunately, late Mr. John Williams was involved in a plane crash, which took lives of number of people including his wife and only child. To the best of my knowledge, the plane was carrying a full load of fuel- more than 100 tons, one house is destroyed completely, and several other houses were damaged by fire. To be honest and sincere to you, I have sent a numerous number of inquiry letters to your country's embassy trying to locate any of my client's relation so that the person will come and claim the money from the bank with the help of the deposit documents, which I shall personally provide to the person. But all my inquiry letters to your country's embassy was not replied. In order not to confiscate the money by the UK Economic and Finance Recovery Authority according to the 1995 United Kingdom Banking policy, which decreed that any bank account that stayed dormant for a period of 10 years without operation by the account holder should be confiscated by the UK Economic and Finance Recovery Authority. Within the next few months without any person coming to claim the money, the fund will be confiscated. Hence, I want you to stand as a relative/next of kin to late Mr. John Williams so that the Ten million British pounds will be transferred to your bank account after due process. This deal is 100% risk free because none of the deceased relations knows about the deposited fund. I have all the vital documents that will help you to claim the money without much stress. After the successful transfer of the ten million British pounds to your bank account, you and I will share the ten million British pounds at the ratio of 50% for each of us. Upon your acceptance to work with me, I will give you more information on how we are going to achieve this fund without hitch. I will not contact any other person until I hear from you. I am waiting for your reply. Regards, Mrs. Grace Williams
