My name is Mr.
John Mandela I work in the International operation Department in a 
Local Bank here in natwest London, United Kingdom.On a routine 
inspection I discovered a dormant domiciliary account with a BAL.Of 
36,000,000(Thirty Six Million Pounds. (BPS) on further discreet 
Investigation, I also discovered that the account holder has long 
passed away (dead) leaving no beneficiary to the account. 
bank will approve this money to any foreigner because the former 
operator of the a/c is a foreigner and from Iraq in particular and I am 
certainly sure that he is dead, and nobody will come again for the 
claim of this money A foreigner can only claim this money with legal 
claims to the account Holder; therefore I need your cooperation in this 
I will provide the necessary information needed in order 
to claim this Money,But you will need to open an account where this can 
be transferred. If interested send your private Telephone No. And Fax 
number including full details of the account to be used for the 
Deposit. I wish for utmost confidentiality in handling this transaction 
as my job and the future of my family would be jeopardized if it were 
I want to assure you that the transaction is without risk if 
due process is followed accordingly.Finally,I will give you 25% for 
your corporation.I look forward to a favorable response from you 
through this my Private email:
John Mandela.
