Mr.Brown Walter, Auditor General, Natwest Bank Group, Caryle House, Carlyle Rd, Cambridge,CB4 3DH, United Kingdom. Dear Friend, REQUEST FOR YOUR PROMPT ATTENTION I am Mr.Brown Walter, Auditor General of Natwest Bank Group, UK. I am writing following an opportunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $15.500.000.00 (Fifteen Million, Five Hundred thousand united State Dollars.) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers, Late Mr.Sturat Fielding 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. You shall read more about the crash on visiting this site. http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relatives to come over and lay claims to his money because we cannot 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 being his only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this funds behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and two other officials in this department now decided to make business with you and release the money to your possesion as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement, since nobody is laying claims to it and we don?t want this money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that such money remained after six(6) years will be transferred into banking treasury as unclaimed funds. We agreed that 35% of this money would be for you as gratification for assistance rendered, while the balance will be for my colleagues and me. I will visit your country for the disbursement according to the percentages indicated above once this money gets into your account. Please be honest to me as trust stands to be our watchword in this transaction. Our assurance is that your role is risk free to accord this transaction the legality it deserves as with all modalities put in place we are certain in actualizing a hitch free transfer of the funds without any complications. Kindly signify your intention to assist by sending me an email for further procedures relating to this transaction. Please note that all necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you has been finalized. We will discuss much in details when I do receive your response. If you are interested in this project contact me as a matter of urgency for further directives through email:email@example.com Best regards, Brown Walter firstname.lastname@example.org
