You shall read more about the crash on visiting this website.(www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list)and tml Since his death, i have been expecting his next of kin or relatves 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 bank's policy. 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 decided to contact you to apply for the claims of the fund with the bank for the release of the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement since althoughy i do not know you nor have seen or met you in my life as nobody is coming for it and i don't want this money to continue unclaimed with the bank's treasury . I agreed that 40% of this money will be for you as partner,while the ballance will be for 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 and trust has to be our watchword in this transaction. Note this transaction is confidential and risk free. As soon as you receive this mail, you should contact me mail 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 am very careful about my future as a lawyer should you mention this to someone else. I hope you can be trusted in this regard. Please note that all necessary legal documents for the smooth release of these funds to you shall be handled by me being the attorney to the deceased.I will discuss much in details when I do receive your response .
