142 Brompton Road, Central London SW3 1HY United Kingdom. Dear friend, I know that this mail will come to you out of the blue as a total surprise. Well, I have a business proposal which I know might interest you. I believe that you would be in a position to assist me in my bid to transfer the sum of (£18.5M.) Eighteen Million Five Hundred Thousand British Pounds into a foreign bank account. So study the following account carefully and reply urgently. I am Dr.Donald Mac, an Auditor of a bank here in London. During the course of our auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 1999 and since 2000 nobody has operated on this account.After a lot of investigation I discovered that the owner of the bank account died without a beneficiary.The money is floating and if I do not remit this money out it will be forfeited for nothing. The owner of the account is Mr. Magnus Smith, a foreigner. He died since 2000 and the bank account has no other beneficiary. My investigation proved to me that nobody knows about this account or anything concerning it. So I want to grab this opportunity, as it is no harm to nobody. I am here soliciting for your assistance as aforeigner because the money cannot be approved to anybody here. But It can be approved to a foreigner with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign bank account because the money at sake is in British Pound sterling and the former owner of the account is a foreigner. The management must approve this payment to you if you have the correct information of this account, which I will give to you, upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and will meet up with instruction of key bank official who is deeply involved with me in this project. With my influence and the position of the bank officials, we can transfer this money to any foreigner’s reliable account, which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival at your end for sharing. Note that an existing foreign bank account or an empty account can serve to receive this money. The banks official will destroy all documents of the transaction immediately this money is into your nominated bank account. At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 20% of the total amount, 75% will be for the bank official and I, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the course of this transaction. May I stop here. Reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take. Send also your private phone and fax number including the full details of the bank account to used for the deposit. Best regards. Dr.Donald Mac.
