Compliments of the season

I am the manager United Bank of Egypt (UBE). in my bank I discovered an
abandoned sum of $33.3musd (thirty three million three hundred thousand
U.S.dollars only) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign
customer, by name, Mr. Bob Robert Chapman, African area director for
Wycliffe bible translators international, who died along with his
wife,Ruth Chapman, in January 2000 in a Kenyan plane crash in the coast
of Abidjan, Ivory coast.

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his
next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release
it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the
deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.

Unfortunately I learnt that his supposed next of kin died along with him
at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore
upon this discovery that I decided to make business with you and release
the money to you as the next of kin or relation of the deceased for
safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I
don't want this money to go into federal government account as unclaimed
bill. The banking law and the guidelines here stipulates that if such
money remained unclaimed after six years the money will be transferred
into banking treasury as unclaimed fund.
The request of a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned
by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and an Egyptian cannot
stand as next of kin for a foreigner. It is agreed that a certain
percentage of this money will be for you as my foreign partner.

Thereafter I will visit your country for disbursement according to the
percentage agreed.

Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of the fund to you as
arranged. you must apply first to the bank as a relation or next of kin
of the deceased indicating your bank account number and location wherein
the money will be remitted.

Upon receipt of your reply I will send to you the text of the

As soon as you receive this letter, you should contact me through my
SECURITY e-mailaddress,

Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yours faithfully

General Manager, UBE.
