Warm greetings!
I am James Ransome, Senior Credit Officer, Heritage Trust Group. I am writing following an 
opportunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us.
In my department we discovered the sum of 12.5 Million British Pounds Sterling (Twelve Million 
Five Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling) in a Trust Account that belongs to one of our 
foreign customers Late Mr. Harry Stasinos, an American who unfortunately lost his life in the plane 
crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only 
daughter. Please check the following website for further reference:
Since his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relation to come over and claim his 
money because the Bank cannot release the funds unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or 
relation to the deceased as indicated in our financial guidelines.
Unfortunately we learnt that his supposed next of kin being his only daughter died along with him 
in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of these funds behind for the claim. It is 
therefore upon this discovery that two other officials in this department and I decided to do 
business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for 
safe keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we do not want this 
money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed bill.
We agreed that 20% of the funds would be for you as foreign partner, 10% would be given to charity 
while the balance will be for my colleagues and I. We will visit your country upon conclusion for 
the disbursement according to the percentages indicated above once the funds are safely deposited 
in your account.  Please be honest with us as trust is our watchword in this transaction.
As soon as you receive this email you should contact me by return email whether or not you are 
willing to enter into this deal. In the event you are not interested, I sincerely ask that you 
disregard this email and tell no one about it.  I hope you can be trusted in this regard.
Please, note that all necessary arrangements for the smooth release of these funds to you have been 
finalized. We will discuss much in details when I do receive your response via any of the contacts 
as given above.
Please in your response include your telephone and fax numbers for a better communication between 
us to my email address :
Yours truly,
James Ransome
