Mr.Rowland Taylor

Senior Audit Officer

Natwest Bank Group


Dear Friend,

I am Mr.Rowland Taylor Senior Audit Officer of Natwest Bank Group UK.Natwest 

Bank London. I am writing following an opportunity in my office that will be 

of immense benefit to both of us.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of 20.5million British 

Pounds Sterling (Twenty million five hundred thousand British Pounds) 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 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 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 eight years the money will be transferred into banking treasury as 

unclaimed funds.

We agreed that 35% 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 


We will discuss much in details when I do receive your response.

Please if you are interested in this project contact me for further 


Best regards

Rowland Taylor
