Mr.Terry W. Elkings
Allied Irish Bank
Ballsbridge, Dublin 4,


I am contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a hugh sum
of money from a deceased account. Though I know that a transaction of
this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am
assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day. We decided
to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.

We discovered an abandoned sum of US$20,000,000.00 (Twenty Million
Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers
who died along with his entire family. Since his death, none of his
next-of-kin or relations has come forward to lay claims to this money
as the heir. We cannot release the fund from his account unless
someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidelines. Upon this discovery, we now seek
your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased as
all documentations will be carefully worked out by us for the funds
US$20,000,000.00) to be released in your favour as the beneficiary's
next of kin. It may interest you to note that we have secured from
the probate an order of madamus to locate any of deceased
beneficiaries.Please acknowledge receipt of this message in
acceptance of our mutual business endeavour by furnishing me with the
1. Beneficiary name and address.
2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers.

These requirements will enable us file a letter of claim to the
appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favour before
the transfer can be made. We shall be compensating you with 2 Million
Dollars on final conclusion of this project, while the rest shall be
for us. Your share stays with you while the rest shall be for us for
investment purposes. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not
take undue advantage of the trust we have bestowed in you, I await
your urgent mail.
