Mr Paul Contacting You From London P.O.Box 3038,57 Victoria Street London sw1h, London. I am Mr Paul Joe from London. I want to seek your assistance after my discovery during auditing in my bank as am the Manager of Bill and Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department of NATWEST BANK PLC. In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of Â12.5 million pounds in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Mr Morris Thompson who died along with his entire family in Alaska Plane crash on February 4th 2000. View this website for verification http://archives.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines. list/. Since his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking and financial policies but unfortunately all the efforts proved abortive. It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided as the head of my department to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bills. Do not view this as being illegal but an opportunity for us to help enrich our hope in life instead of the bank converting this much money to the security funds. You should not nurse any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the smooth transfer of these funds and your acceptance is what will crown this effort. Remain blessed, Mr Paul Joe.
