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, though we have not meet before, 
neither have we
seen for the first time,  before I pick up your
and write to you 
I am a staff of B.O.A BANK 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 
(Six million five hundred thousand 
Dollars only) 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 shall read more  about the crash on
visiting this site.
Since we got information about  his death, we have
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
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 donât want 
money to go back into  Government treasury  as
unclaimed bill.

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.  
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 
for easy communication between us.
Best regards

Mr.Jean Pierre
