    Dear Sir/Madam,

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Dave Johnson  director
of operations of the HSBC Bank plc, Chirk, Wrexham Branch. I have an
obscured business suggestion for you. One of our clients/personal
friend,  an American who was a private business man unfortunately
lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261, which crashed 
on January 31st 2000, Including his wife and only daughter.
After further investigation it was also discovered that My client
next of kin is his daughter who died with him. And he also
Confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except
me knew of his deposit in my bank. So,( $24,500:000:00) Twenty Four
millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying
in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it.
What bothers me most is that according to the to the laws of my
country at the expiration six years   the funds will
revert to the ownership of the United Kingdom Government if nobody
applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to
you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of

I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we
shall come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will
prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of
kin to My client, all that is required from you at this
stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that
the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next
of kin, the attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and
secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favour
for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you.
There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going to
adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary
documents. Please endeavour to observe utmost discretion in all
matters concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred
to your nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 70%
for me,30% for you . Should you be interested please send me your
