From: Mr. Robert Sleeper Jnr, Bank of International Settlement (BIS), Switzerland. Hi, My name is Robert Sleeper Jnr, head of operations Bank of International Settlement Switzerland. Sometime in the year 2000, a certain man Mr Greg Smith brought a luggage marked "Family Treasure" to me for safekeeping i my Bank. I met this man in the year 1996 in United States of America (U.S.A.) when I went for a seminar and he introduced himself as a ship captain. We became intimate more than he realized my profession as a Banker, there and then, he informed me about his intention to bring this luggage to my Bank for custody. However, I did not take this serious not until he brought the boxes to my office, right inside my offic, he secretly revealed to me that the contents of the two boxes were clean bills of United States Dollars in 100 bills denomination totaling US$45.6m. On discovering this, I invited my colleague in the Bank who is also my best confidant and the head of the legal department of my Bank who advised that the boxes be moved to a different security company in Dubai united Arab Emirates and a Certificate of Deposit was issued to him accordingly.However, he saw me as a trustworthy person and decided to hand over the Cerificate of Deposit to me for safekeeping in my Bank and then left back to his country. Though he is always on the sea being a sailor, all our correspondence was through telephone. I discussed with him last, early in the year 2001 and throughout the year 2002, I did not hear from him till last year when I called his telephone number and behold someone else had bought over the telephone, the new subscriber told me that Mr. Greg Smith died alongside his wife and only two children t the world trade center during the Bin-Laden bomb blast in America. This news shocked me so much because of the fact that Mr. Greg did not leave any of his contact address or Next-of-Kin and since then all plan to trace any of his relatives proved abortive. honestly, I became confused and sort the opinion of my colleague on what we should do. He suggested that we should look for an assistance from would-be trustworthy oversea partner who will assist us claim these boxes from the Security Company in Dubai united Arab Emirates for our mutual benefit and future investment. hence our reason to contact you for an assistance. My colleague and I have agreed to give you 30% of the total sum 5% will be for any expenses that we might have incur during the cause of claiming the boxes and 65% for both of us. Be rest assured that this transaction is risk-free and your urgent response is highly needed only on this E-mail address for security reasons. E-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org Best regards, Robert Sleeper Jnr Head Of Operations,Bank of International Settlement Switzerland. ________________________________________________________________________ SERVIZIO VOICE: TELEFONA e INVIA SMS dal tuo computer a tariffe vantaggiose!
