My name is Harry Costeren; I am a staff in one of the
bank here in Netherlands. I am writing you following
an opportunity in my office that will be of immense
benefit to both of us. In my department, I discovered
an abandoned sum of 4.5million euro (Four 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.
Since we got information about his death, we have been
expecting his next of kin or relatives 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 and we don't 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

I will agree to share with you on an agreed percentage
for your partnership in this business which I will
prefer to call a deal. Please be honest to me and
trust is our watchword in this transaction, note this
transaction is confidential and risk free. As soon as
you receive this mail you should contact me by return
mail. 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.

Do email me back with your full contact details on
your full understanding and acceptance of your role in
this mutual benefiting project. You can as well
contact me with my private number +31 629 420 735 or
via this email address:

Yours truly, 

Harry Costeren
