Dear Friend,

I work as an accountant with The Standard Chartered Bank (UK) Overseas Office. While conducting 
internal audit on a recent trip to the Bank offices in Buluwayo, Zimbabwe, an African nation, I 
came across a dormant account with a hefty balance. The said balance was opened a few decades ago. 
After diligent research, it turns out that the owner of the account is deceased and the beneficiary 
under his will is a bankrupt charity. If no person comes forward to make a claim for the money, it 
would revert back to the State and the bank would just conveniently convert it to its coffers.

All attempts to get a living relative have not been successful and by June nothing could be done 
anymore in this regards as it would have been over 18 years of no one coming forward. All the money 
in the account Ł40,182,000.00 (Forty million, One Hundred and eighty Two Thousand British Pounds) 
would revert to the State and I intend to transfer in bit (instalmentally)

I have spoken at great lengths with the solicitor, who drafted the will, and the Executor of the 
Deceaseds Estate. We are looking for someone whose company/name or rather someone with a bank 
account that can receive this money. You would be made the beneficiary" under the terms of the 
will. After all the necessary documentations, attestations and legal formalities, that sum would be 
paid to you as the entitled beneficiary and you in turn would take your agreed percentage and 
assign the rest to us.

Due to the nature of the transaction and the large sum involved, you will be required to sign a 
separate agreement with us, basically to the effect that you would only take your agreed share, 
which would be 30% and transfer the balance (after taxes and expenses) to

us upon receipt of the said funds. Needless to say, in the course of this transaction, everything 
must be done in absolute trust and confidentiality.

Refer back to me for clearification purposes,

I look forward to hearing from you.

Gilbert Tanya
