Dear Friend,
I am Mr.Brian Capon the system and control director at the NATIONAL WESTMINISTER BANK.I am writing 
this letter to solicit for support and assistance from you to carry out this business opportunity 
in my bank.
Lying in an inactive account is the sum of 11million pounds sterling belonging to a foreign 
customer(Michael Gambone) who was a gas consultant here in UK,who happens to be deceased during a 
business trip. He died with his wife(Deborah Gambone) on board the Swissair Flight 111 , which 
crashed into the Atlantic off Nova Scotia in september 2nd 1998.
The news of this crash was on the news which we have notified his relatives to no avail.See links 
below for more detail informaion:
Ever since he died the bank has been expecting his next of kin to come and claim these fund. To 
this effect, we can not release the money unless someone applies for it as next of kin, as 
indicated in our banking guideline.
Unfortunately he has no family member in UK or Over-sea who are aware of the existence of the 
money(as he was a gas consultant.
At this juncture i have decided to do business with you.To this effect I solicit your assistance in 
applying as the next of kin to the bank then the money will be released to you,as I do not want 
this money to go into the bank treasury as an unclaimed bill,because the banking law and guideline 
stipulates that if such money(s) remains unclaimed for a period of up to eight years(8yrs),the 
money will be transferred into
the bank treasury as an unclaimed bill.
My request for a foreigner as next of kin is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a 
foreigner and a British cannot stand as next of kin.
40% of the money will be your share as a foreign partner and your assistance to actualise this 
business,5% for any expenses incured.
Thereafter i will visit your country with your help once the money hits your account for 
disbursement according to the percentage indicated.
To effect the immediate transfer of the fund to you as agreed,you must apply first to the bank as 
the next of kin to the deceased,then we will follow up all formalities for the transaction.
Upon receipt of your reply, i will send to you, the text of the application you are to send to the 
bank,and further clearify you in other issues as toeffect this business.
Awaiting to hear from you urgently.
Best Regards
Mr.Brian Capon.
