Dear Sir,
Greetings, I am Mr Henry okoye the Account Manager of Late 
Mr.  Morris Thompson in Standard Trust Bank Regional Office in 
island, here in Lagos.

 However I got your contact through 
International web directory.I decided to contact you by email 
because I 
feel that it is more secured and private.

Recently we 
discovered a Dormant Account with a huge amount of Money Valued BP35,
(Thirty Five Million Pounds only)that belongs to one of our 
Customer who died in a plane crash .

 During our investigation 
auditing in this bank, my department came across a very huge sum 
money belonging to Late Mr.  Morris Thompson an American great 
industrialist and a resident of Alaska, who unfortunately lost his 
in the plane  crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed 
January 31  2000,including his wife and only daughter. 
You shall 
more news about the crash on  visiting this site which I got 
during my  
The fund has been dormant in his account With this Bank 
without any 
of the funds in our custody either from his family 
or relation 
before our discovery of this development.

The Banking law 
stipulates that if such money remains unclaimed for Six years, it 
be forfeited to the Bank treasury as an unclaimed bill.
It is 
only a 
foreigner that can stand as a next of kin and It is upon this 
that I decided to contact you to collaborate with you to 
pull out this 
dormant fund.
 In order to avert this negative 
development, I on behalf 
of my trusted colleagues now seek your 
permission to have you stand in 
as next of kin to Our late Customer so 
that the fund will be released 
and paid into your account as the 
beneficiary?s next of kin now that 
the bank is still expecting a next 
of kin or relative of the deceased ,
Late Mr.  Morris Thompson.

fact we could have done this deal alone 
but because of our position in 
this country as civil servants, we are 
not allowed to operate a 
foreign account and that would eventually 
raise an eye brow on our 
side during the time of transfer since we 
still work in this bank, 
this is the actual reason why we required a 
second party or fellow who 
will assist us forward claims as the next of 
kin and also provide 
either an existing bank account or to set up a new 
Bank a/c 
immediately to receive this fund.
i want you to respond as 
soon as you 
get this mail, so as to procceed on the transaction as soon 

best regards
Mr henry okoye
