Natwest Bank,
29 Wilson Street,
UK .

I am Mr John Dalington, the Head of 
Audit Department, Natwest Bank, London, UK. And for reasons which will 
become obvious to you as you read on, I obtained your address 
particulars from an Internet address listing. Please exercise some 
patience and read through my message. 

I have a very urgent and 
confidential business proposition for you. On June 6th 1999, a Crude 
Oil Contractor with the Kuwait National Petroleum Corporation, Engr. 
Ahmed Youseff Mustafa , a national of kuwait, made a numbered time ( 
fixed) deposit for 12 calendar months, value GBP12,500,000.00 (TWELVE 

On maturity, we 
sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. 
After a month, we sent a reminder and finally, his contract employers, 
the Kuwait National Petroleum Corporation wrote to inform us that Engr. 
A Y Mustafa died on an automobile accident; that he died without making 
a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin through the kuwait 
embassy were fruitless. I therefore made further investigations and 
discovered that Mr. Mustafa
had actively opposed the Government of his 
country kuwait, and was consequently driven into exile. 
My proposal 
therefore is that, I am looking for a foreigner who will stand in as 
the next of kin to Mr. Mustafa. It is not necessary to be a blood 
relation to Mr. Mustafa, nor have the same name. It is not also 
necessary to come from the same Country. I have worked out the 
modalities to achieve my aim of appointing a next of kin, and therefore 
also by this means we transfer this money total GBP12.5M abroad for us 
to share. No one will ever come forward to claim it now, and according 
to British law,after 9 years, the money will automatically revert to 
the Government Treasury if the Account owner is a foreigner, and 
certified dead, and there is no valid claim. This indeed, is the 
The money transfer paperwork itself will include a 
certificate of origin so that the receiving bank does not ask questions 
or refuse the money as money laundering. Also, the paperwork will 
include proper certification that the funds being transferred are from 
non criminal sources. In short this will be a proper and legal money 
transfer and there is no risk!.
Once you indicate your interest I will 
initiate the processing of the transfer and in about 14 working days 
the money total GBP12.5M will be in your nominated bank account for us 
to share in the ratio of 70% for me and 30% for you. 

Looking forward 
to your urgent reply.

Yours truly, 

Mr John Dalington
