Santander Bank.

Dear: Friend,

I am Mr. Robert McLauren, the Auditor General, Santander Bank. In the course of my auditing, I 
discovered a floating fund in an account, which was opened in 1990 belonging to a dead foreigner 
who died in 1999. I have been able to contact the Late account holder's attorney; but every effort 
made to track any member of his family or next of kin has since failed hence I got in contact with 
you to stand as his next of kin since you bear the same last name. He died leaving no heir or a 
will. Since his attorney is aware, you will contact his attorney since he has all the legal 
documents backing the fund. 

My intention is to transfer this sum of Five Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars 
only, in the aforementioned account to a safe account overseas. I am therefore proposing that you 
quietly partner with me and provide an account or set up a new one that will serve the purpose of 
receiving this fund. For your assistance in this venture, I am ready to part with a good percentage 
of the entire funds. We will share the funds in the proportion of 60% for you, 10% for the 
attorney, 20% for me and 10% will be donated to Charitable Organizations. After going through the 
deceased person's records and files, I discovered that:

(1) No one has operated this account since 1999.
(2) He died without an heir; hence the money has been floating.
(3) No other person knows about this account apart from the attorney and there was no known 
beneficiary. That is why every process has to go through the attorney.

If I do not remit this money urgently, it would be forfeited and subsequently converted to 
company's funds, which will benefit only the directors of my firm. This money can be approved to 
you legally as with all the necessary documentary approvals in your name. However, you would be 
required to show some proof of claim, which the attorney will provide you with and also guide you 
on how to make your applications.

Please do give me a reply so that I can send you detailed information on the modalities of my 
proposition. I completely trust you to keep this proposition absolutely confidential, I look 
forward to your prompt response. 

Best Regards,

Mr. Robert McLauren
Auditor General,
Santander Bank.
