My Dearest,

How are you today with your family over their in your country?I hope you all fine, so my dear, i will like you to go through this letter kindly and also get back to me or you can call me on telephone.
It is my great interest and the trust which I have on you, Although we have not meet before, neither have we seen for the first time,  before I pick up your address and write to you.
I am a staff of  BANK Here, I 'm 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  $10.5million (Ten million five hundred thousand ) 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 his only daughter. You shall read more  about the crash on visiting this site below;
Since we got this 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 and we donít want this money to go back into  Government treasury  as unclaimed
The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that such money remained after five years the money will be transferred into banking treasury as unclaimed funds.
We agreed that 20% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, while the balance will be for me and my colleagues. 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 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.
Please in your response include your telephone number for easy communication between us.You can also get back to me through my private email address;
Best regards
