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. Morris
Thompson, 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
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
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
