I Am Mr.FRANK MORRIS, in charge of bills and foreign
exchange remittance Department of First Atlantic Bank Plc.
I am writing you this letter to ask for your support and co-operation
to carry out this business opportunity in my department.
We discovered an unclaimed sum of $24.5Million (Twenty-four million
five hundred thousand dollars) in an account belonging to one of our
customer,(Mr.benji merra Age 51) who died in a plane crash (Concorde
Airlines Flight AF4590)with his 37-year-old wife and daughter charle, aged
eight. on Monday, 31 July, 2003, 13:22 GMT 14:22 UK

Since we got information about his death we have been expecting his
next of kin to come over and claim his money.
Unfortunately,neither the family nor the relation has appeared to claim
this money. We cannot release this money unless somebody applies as the
next of kin or relation to the deceased.

Our banking guidelines indicated that if such money remained unclaimed
for a period of Six (6) years, it would be transferred into the First
Atlantic Bank Treasury as unclaimed fund.

Another officer and I in the department now decided to transfer this
money into your account as the next of kin or relation of the deceased
for easy collection since nobody is coming for it and we dont want this
money to go back into the bank treasury as an unclaimed fund.

Infact it is my friend that advised me to urgently arrange to transfer
out this money through another foreign beneficiary outside the
country.Upon your acceptance to this proposal,we have also agreed on a
1.30% for you as the account owner

3.10% will be set aside to defray all incidental expenses both locally
and internationally during the cause of this transaction.

Furthermore we shall be coming over to your country when the money is
finanlly in your account and we shall be relying on your advise as
regards,to investment of our share,be informed that this transaction is
genuine and 100% risk free considering the top level bank officials

As you know that I enjoy good office here with the bank and I will use
my personality to make the official application on your behalf for
approval of this money into your nominated account thereby having the
banktransfer this money into your bank account.
I will advice that you furnish me with the necessary details for me to
make the official application of claim on your behalf as the next of
kin and beneficiary of this money with out wasting time
