Atten: Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics although, I wish to use this medium to get in touch with you first because it's fastest means. I am an external auditor of a well known bank here in the United Kingdom. In one of our peroidic auditing I discorverd a dormant accounts with holding balance of 25,000,000 (Twenty-Five Million British Pounds) which has not been operated for the past three years. From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account, a oreigner by name Mr.Gregory .B.Wilson died in plane crash in July 19,2003 and since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money because he has no family members who are aware of the existence of neither the account nor the funds. I have secretly discussed this matter with a top senior minister official of the federal ministry of finance here and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with us although due to his possition he did not want to take active part but as soon as you follow my instructions everything will be successfull because we will be woking hand in hand with him. We thus propose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of these funds from the deceased and after due legal processes have been followed the fund will be released to your account without delay and we will use it for investment and to assist the less privelaged in the society because if we left the fund with the government it will be fortified for nothing and will be used to suppress the poor masses in the society. So you should provide me with your correct account detail where you will like the fund to be transferred even an empty account is ok. At the conclussion of the transfer you will take 35%,5% will be for any expenses both parties incurred in the process of this business and the remaining 60% will be for me. As soon as I hear from you and upon your strong assurance that you will not let me down once the fund goes into your account I will then start the processing of the transfer of the fund to your account without further delay. Send me your nominate account information as states below where you like the money to be transfer so that i can send application for the release of the fund immediatelly with your account information. Beneficiary Name....... Bank Name.............. Bank Address........... Account Number......... Swift Code............. Routing Number......... State & Country........ Your Tel/Fax Number....For easy communication. I look forward to hear from you as soon as possible if you are interested. Best regards, Mr. Alfred Marshal.
