First of all, let me start by introducing myself. My name is Mr. Ray Smith,the Auditor General of 
Deutsche Bank London. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.I am the 
accounting officer of Mr. Ken Lay, Enron founder, who deid on July, 5th 2006, at the age of 64 and 
his friend and partner Mr. Jeffrey Skilling, Ex-Enron CEO who was recently convicted 24 years for 
his involvement on the collapse of Enron, the energy trading giant in America.It will interest to 
know that on Wednesday, 7th February 2001, Mr. Ken Lay deposited a total sum of 20M pounds and on 
Tuesday, 24th April 2001, Mr Jeffrey Skilling deposited 17.5M Pounds in our Bank. These funds were 
deposited into a non-existing company's account which I opened in our bank (DEUTSCHE BANK LONDON) 
under their instructions, to avoid raising an eyebrow but unfortunately for them and fortunately 
for me, the 2 men are gone.

You can read more about the sentence by visiting the below websites:

So right now, we have the sum of 37.5M Pounds lying in the 2 accounts without any proof of 
ownership as it was opened with non-existing companies name and the bank is not aware of the real 
beneficiaries as the accounts did not bear any name. As their accounting officer and financial 
adviser in charge of these accounts, I can comfortable present you to the Bank as the real 
beneficiary of the funds and they have no right to deny the application.

Consequently, my proposal is that I want to seek your consent as a foreigner to stand as the owner 
of any of these accounts, since it has no trace or beneficiary which makes it easier and fine to 
transfer to your designated bank account as the beneficiary. The nature of my work as a staff of 
the Bank will not allow me lay claim on the funds, hence this proposal to you and be informed that 
as long as you are ready to cooperate and be truthful to me,

I can assure you that the sky will be our limit.All documents and proves to enable you get any of 
the money will be carefully worked out and more so, I assure you that the business is risk free, as 
everything will be handled in accordance with the International Monitary Guidelines. I am offering 
you 40% for your cooperation in achieving this aim.Please, if you are interested in working with 
me, I will like you to send the below informations to enable me procure the necessary documents 
will back up the transfer to your account:


As soon as I receive your acceptance mail by forwarding the above informations, I will prepare the 
paper works in your name for onward remittance of the funds into your designated account.

Lastly, I want you to understand that this transaction requires trust,honest and above all, utmost 
confidentiality, to avoid escalating.

Anticipating to hear from you soon.This is my private email address
