FROM MR.  Ben Desmond
Dear Friend,
Please accept my sincere apologizes if my email does not meet your  business or personal ethics.
I will first introduce myself as MR. ben desmond, the  Chief Auditor with
One of our accounts, with holding balance of 12.500
000,000 (Twelve Million Five Hundred thousand pounds Sterling) has
been dormant and last operated for years ago.
From my investigations, the owner of the said
account,Is a foreigner by name MR. JOHN SHUMEJDA who died along with his entire
family in crash at Birmingham Airport  on 4th Jan, 2002.

Since then, nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money, as he has no family member that has any
knowledge as to the existence of either the account or the funds;
I have confidently discussed this issue with some of the bank officials and we have agreed to
find a reliable foreign partner to deal with.
My proposition to you, is to seek your consent to
present you as the Next of kin and beneficiary of this late client, So that the proceeds of this account valued a huge sum
shall be paid to you, and then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed percentage of 30% for you,While
60% for me and others involved, 10% shall be used for miscelenious expenses while the  remainder shall be
given to a reputable charity home because the money is owned  by a deceased person.
This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act, funds
will be released to you after necessary processes have been  followed.
Let me hear from you as soon as you get this message, so we can proceed.
Best regards,
Mr Ben Desmond
