Barclays bank London UK
From: The Desk of
Managing Director,


I am Mr. Pat Doyle Managing Director, Corporate
Services Division and Head of Swift Transfer Unit of Barclays bank London UK.

Sometime ago, in our bank your inheritance fund was brought to our bank from National Lotto Group here in England and after some period, the money was taken back to their treasury. But for the period of time this money was in our bank, it generated an interest of US$800,000.00
which we are about to pay you Via International Certified Bank Draft through our corresponding bank in US. (Bank of America).
For your information and advice, you need to hasten up to pick this Fund because from time to time the National Lotto Group auditors do come to our bank to cross-check our files and our financial update, the earlier you comply with
the demands of the delivery of the fund, the faster the action, because when the auditors arrive and find out that this interest fund is still in our bank they will call back the accrued interest to the lotto treasury account.

What we need from you now is any form of your identification for example;your International passport or your driver license,your telephone and fax numbers for easy communication to you with your mailing address where this Draft will be delivered. As a matter of fact we dont have enough time to waste since we have wasted
time in contacting you through phone, so try and comply with the entire necessary requirement for the transaction.

To begin your claims, kindly contact our fiduciary agent company at this email address:

Contact Mr. Desmond Johnson
Phone: +44-703-590-0619

Note I have attempted to call you but all effort failed and I had to send you a mail on this email address, which I guessed belongs to you.

Expecting your immediately response.

Yours Sincerely,
Mr. Pat Doyle
Managing Director
