Dear Friend, Please permit me to introduce myself to you. I am ULVAEUS BJORN, A Personal Asistant to MR BURKE SEAN an oil merchant in London, United Kingdom. I got your contact from the British Council, and I have decided to contact you so that we can carry out this mutually beneficial business transaction. My late Client ( MR. BURKE SEAN ) until his death aboard an AERO FLIGHT 801 in 1997 deposited a total of 5.5M GPB with BARCLAYS BANK, UNITED KINGDOM. ( see attached website for the full listing of the deceased passengers) http://edition.cnn.com/WORLD/9708/06/guam.passenger.list/ He gave me the custody of the deposit documents, and as such entrusted me with the Legal Rights to transfer and execute this deposit to any Next of Kin after his demise. I have since tried to locate any Next of Kin without success, hence I decided to contact you so that you can rightfully stand as the next of kin to inherit the deposited sum by virtue of the fact that you can provide a foreign account to receive the DEPOSIT outside the UNITED KINGDOM. You will be entitled to 40% of the total sum should you be willing to assist me in this business transaction. I am writing you confidentialy because i believe you can accomplish this task successfully. Yours truly, MR.ULVAEUS BJORN 42 Campshill Road, London United Kingdom.
