Good day to you,

My name is Alan Reeves, I am the credit manager with a bank here

in the United Kingdom. I am contacting you in respect of a

transaction of very great importance. Though I know that

contact of this nature will make any one apprehensive and worried, I

am assuring you that everything has been taken care of, and you

have nothing to fear at all and i would be very glad if you would

allow me bring you to a clearer picture of what is on ground, what

we intend to do and how we intend to do it.

This enquiry involves a client who shares your surname.

It was brought to my knowledge that the aforementioned

client died intestate and nominated no next of kin to the title

over investments made. We came to know of you via the London.

Global. Database.Center (L.G.D.C.) Hence i am making this contact.

The essence of this communication with you is to

request that you provide me with information on 3 KEY issues.

1. Are you aware of any relative/relation having the same surname,

who’s last known, contact address was Brussels, Belgium?

2. Are you aware of any investment of considerable value made by

such a person with any Private Bankers?

3 Can you establish beyond reasonable doubt your eligibility to

assume status of next of kin to the deceased?

He died in an air crash along with his wife on the 31st October

1999 in an Egyptian airline boeing 990 with other passengers on

board. You can confirm this fact from the website which was aired


Since his death, none of his relatives or associates have

come forward to lay claims to his funds as next-of-kin, and on my

own i have made concerted effort to locate any of his relatives but

all proved abortive.

Based on the ethics and policies of the bank,it would be declared

unclaimed and taken to the treasury of the bank as capital base of

the bank, because already the account has been

tagged dormant because it has exceeded the normal functional number of years.

We cannot release the funds from his account unless someone

applies for it or lays claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as

indicated in our banking guidelines. Upon this discovery, I now

seek your permission and assistance to present you and have you

stand as a next of kin to the deceased,so that the funds can be

released and transfer to you, as all documentations will be

carefully worked out by me for it to be released in your

favor as the beneficiary's next of kin, if not the members of the

board of directors will utilise it for their personal

aggrandisement. Because after six years as this is the fifth year

going it will be called back to the bank treasury as unclaimed

bills and shared amongst the directors of the bank, so it is on

this note i decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the

next of kin/beneficiary rather than allow the bank directors to

share it amongst themselves at the end of the year.

It may interest you to know that I have secured from the probate

commission an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased

beneficiaries. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in

acceptance of our mutual business endeavour by furnishing me with

the following information if you are interested.

1. A beneficiary name, in order for me to prepare the document for

transfer in your name.

2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers...For our personal contact and

for easy communication between both of us.

Upon your acceptance I shall send you my identity for more

confidentiality and trust in each other as i shall trust you not to

elope at completion.

If this proposal is acceptable by you, please endeavor to contact

me immediately. Do not take undue advantage of the trust I have

bestowed in you, I await your urgent response. Contact me via this

email address please:


Alan Reeves.
