 Dear Friend,

I am James Clarke,a manager at Lloyds TSB Commercial Finance in Yorkshire,UK. I have urgent and 
very confidential business proposition for you. On June 6, 2000, Mr. Barry Kelly made a numbered 
time (Fixed) Deposit for forty-eight months, (being four years) valued at US$40,000,000.00, (forty 
Million, Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding 
address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his 
employers, that Mr. Barry Kelly died from tsunami on his holidays in Thailand 26 December 2004. On 
further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his 
next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Barry 
Kelly did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank 
Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$40,000,000 has carefully been moved out of my bank to 
a security company for
safekeeping. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to British Law, at the expiration 
of (three) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the British Government if nobody 
applies to claim the fund. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you to stand in as the 
owner of the money I deposited it in a security company in two trunk boxes though the security 
company does not know the contents of the boxes as I tagged them to be photographic materials for 
export. I am writing you because I as a public servant (Manager with the bank), I cannot operate a 
foreign account or have an account that is more than $1m. I want to present you as the owner of the 
boxes in the security company so you can be able to claim them with the help of my attorney. This 
is simple. I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the Attorney 
will prepare the necessary documents which will put you in place as the as the owner of the boxes. 
The money will be
moved out for us to share in the ratio of 70% for me and 30% for you. There is no risk at all as 
all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the Attorney and this will guarantees the 
successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately via my 
email address upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents 
that will help you understand the transaction. Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest 
assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your 
assistance to invest my share in (Buying of properties like houses, hotels and doing charity works 
etc) Please do send me your private/mobile telephone fax number so that we can have a smooth 
communication. Awaiting your urgent reply through my private,you 
can call me on +447821553141.

Thanks and God bless you.

James Clarke.
