Compliments of the day, Before proceeding, I wish to introduce myself to you; I am Barrister=20 Donald Frank, an attorney, legal adviser and notary public, member of=20 Brick court chambers London. I am pleased to get across to you for a=20 very urgent and profitable business proposal which I believe will=20 profit the both of us after completion. I contacted you after a careful=20 thought that you might be capable of handling this business=20 transaction, which I explained below.=20 There is this immigrant Mr. Andreas schranner, property magnate based=20 in the U.K., who happens to be one of our very good clients. On the=20 25th of July 2000, the deceased, German property magnate Andreas=20 Schranner, 64, his wife Maria, 62, their daughter Andrea Eich, 38, her=20 husband Christian, 57, and their children Katharina, eight, and=20 Maximilian, 10, all died in the air France concord plane crash bound=20 for New York in their plan for a world cruise. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm before his death, he was having a closing balance of =C2=A318 million=20 pounds (eighteen million British pounds only) in Barclays bank with=20 account no: 01514770727 & deposit code no: bbacxxbsl. Upon maturity, a=20 routine notification was forwarded to his address but we got no reply. All attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made=20 further investigations and discovered that Mr. Andreas Schranner did=20 not declare any next of kin or relation in all his official documents,=20 including his bank deposit paperwork in the bank. This sum of=20 =C2=A318,000,000.00 has been floating as unclaimed since 2000 in the bank a= s=20 all efforts to get his relatives have hit the stones. According to the British Law, the money will revert to the ownership=20 of the British government if nobody applies to claim the fund. To avoid=20 this money being sent to the British treasury as unclaimed funds, I=20 have decided to seek your assistance to have you stand as his next of=20 kin so that the said fund (=C2=A318million) would be released in your name= =20 as the next of kin and paid into your account before I come over to=20 meet you in person for sharing.=20 =20 All documents and proof that will have you claim this fund without=20 stress will be forwarded to you upon your response to this mail more=20 so, I want to inform you that I have unanimously agreed to offer you=20 30% of the sum for the assistance and role you are going to play in=20 this transaction, 20% will be given to charity organizations, 40% will=20 be my share while the remaining 10% will be reserved for miscellaneous=20 expenses. As a Christian, I cannot stand and see this money being sent=20 to the British treasury and shared among top government personnel while=20 the poor suffer. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual=20 business endeavor by furnishing me with the following;=20 1. Your Full Names and Address. 2. Direct Telephone and Fax numbers. These requirements will enable me file a letter of claim to the=20 appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favor before=20 the transfer can be made. If this proposal is acceptable by you, Please=20 treat very CONFIDENTIAL and do not take undue advantage of the trust we=20 have bestowed in you, I await your urgent response to this email.=20 God bless you.
