                                                         MUTUAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL
Dear Friend,
I am Mr. Gambo zaria, an Audit official in a financial institution here in nigeria. I am writing 
following an oppurtunity in my office that will be of imense benefit to both of us.  In my 
department we discovered an abandoned sum of Ä 12.5 Million Euro (Twelve Million Five Hundred 
Thousand Euros.) in an 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. You can read more about 
the crash by visiting this site which I got during my investigation; please try to go through the 

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relatves to 
come over and claim 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 fund 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 you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping and 
subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it .
We donít want this money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed bill.The banking law and 
guidelines here stipulates that such money remained after seven years the money will be transferred 
into banking treasury as unclaimed funds.

We agreed that 35% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, 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.

Note this transaction is confidential and risk free. As soon as you receive this letter, you should 
contact me  email address: (ZARIAGAMBO@YAHOO.COM ). Please note that all necessary arrangement for 
the smooth release of these funds to you has been finalised. We will discuss much in details when I 
do receive your response.
Thanks and waiting for your urgent reply.
