I apologize for sending you this sensitive information via e-mail Instead of a Certified/Post-mail.

This is due to the urgency and importance of the information. I humbly crave your attention to read 
this e-mail with all seriousness because this project is based on trust, confidentiality, and 
sincerity in order to achieve a goal.  Although, we have not met before, but i have every reason to 
believe that you are a highly respected personality, considering the fact that i got your e- mail 
address through commerce directory while searching for a reliable and reputable person that can 
handle this transaction.

I am a senior manager accounts/audit in Sun Bank Offshore,  (Channel Islands)  I am writing 
following an opportunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us. In my 
department, we discovered an abandoned sum of ?10.5 (Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand Pounds Only) 
in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who unfortunately lost his life on his 
way to the Airport.  Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of 
kin or relatives to come forward and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody 
applies for it as a Next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.

Unfortunately I discovered that his supposed next of kin, being his Only daughter and wife died 
along with him in the auto crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for claim. 
It is Therefore upon this discovery that I and his account manager decided to make business with 
you and release the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping 
and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want the money to go back 
into Government treasury as unclaimed fund.  The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that 
such money remained after seven years the money will be transferred into banking treasury as 
unclaimed funds.

We agreed that 40% of this money would be for you as foreign partner, while the balance will be for 
my colleagues and i.  I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage 
indicated above once the money gets into your account. Please be honest with me. To commence this 
transaction, we require you to immediately indicate your interest by a return e-mail and enclose the

Following information:

1. Your Full name.
2: Your private telephone and Fax numbers.
3. Occupations and Nationality.
4. Date of Birth.
5. Present Location.

Note this transaction is confidential and risk free. Please note that all the necessary arrangement 
for the smooth release of these funds to you will be finalized as soon as you indicate your role in 
this transaction. We will discuss more in details when I receive your response, please contact me 
through my private E-mail address (
