FROM THE DESK OF : Todd Williams 

This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it as serious could come 
into your mind but please consider it with a divine wish and accept it with a deep sense of 
humility. Before proceeding, I wish to introduce myself to you; I am Todd Williams  a staff of 
Natwest Bank plc London. I am the head of the accounts department.I am pleased to get across to you 
for a very urgent and profitable business proposal which I believe will profit the both of us after 
completion. I contacted you after a careful thought that you might be capable of handling this 
business transaction, which i explained below. The sum of ( £ 12,500,000.00 Million Pounds), has 
been floating as unclaimed since 2000 in my bank as all efforts to get across the relatives of our 
client who deposited the money have hit the stones. There is this immigrant Mr. Andreas schranner, 
property magnate who was based in the U.K, who happens to be one of our very good clients. On the 
25Th of July 2000, Mr. Andreas schranner, his wife Maria , their daughter Andréa eich, her husband 
Christian, and their children katharina and maximilian all died in the air France concord plane 
crash bound for New York in their plan for a world cruise.
All attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. My position here at my office requires me to 
investigate and I therefore made further investigations and discovered that Mr. Andreas Schranner 
did not declare any next of kin or relation in all his official documents, including his bank 
deposit paperwork in my bank.According to the British Law. The money will revert to the ownership 
of the British government if nobody applies to claim the fund. To avoid this money being sent to 
the British treasury as unclaimed funds, I have decided to seek your assistance to have you stand 
as his next of kin so that the said fund ( £ 12,500,000.00 million pounds), would be released in 
your name as the next of kin and paid into your account.All documents and proof that will have you 
claim this fund will be forwarded to you without any stress upon your response to this mail more 
soon, i want to inform you that i have unanimously agreed to offer you (£4m) of the total sum for 
the assistance and role you are going to play in this transaction,(£2m)will be given to charity 
organisations in your country with your supervision while the remaining will be for me. Please send 
your confidential telephone and fax number in your reply to this business transaction.PLEASE 
Kind regards,
Mr. Todd Williams
