Dear Sir,

Compliments of the day!
I got your contact on my private search for a reliable and trusted person to
handle a transaction of this nature. I know that the contents of this mail
might sound so strange, but i want to assure you that every word of it is

I am Mr. Henry Philip, credit officer of the AFC Merchant Bank. I have a
concealed business suggestion for you. Before the plane crash of Macedonianís
president and his cabinet members on February 26, 2004, our client Mr John
Morris from the Ministry of

Foreign Affairs, United Kingdom and also business man made a numbered fixed
deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Nine Million, Six Hundred
Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. You can visit this website:

After his death it was also discovered that John Morris did not declare any next
of kin in his official papers including the paperwork of his bank deposit. And
he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me
knew of his deposit in

my bank. So, Nine Million, Six Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still
lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it.

What bothers me most is that according to the to the laws of my country at the
expiration of three years the funds will revert to the ownership of the United
Kingdom Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop,
my suggestion to you

is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to John
Morris so that you will be able to receive his funds.


I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come
out successful. I have consulted the services of an attorney that will prepare
the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to John Morris
,all that is required

from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Legal Full Names and
Address so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the
next of kin, the Attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and
secure the necessary

approval and letter of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an
account that will be provided by you. There is no risk involved at all in the
matter as we are going to adopt a legalized method and the Attorney will
prepare all the necessary


Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this
issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your Nominated Bank Account we
shall share in the ratio of 75% for me, 20% for you and 5%for any expenses
incurred during the

course of this Project.
Should you be interested please send me your private phone and fax numbers for
easy communication, you can write me via my private box stated above and i will
provide you with more details of the Project.

Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Mr. Henry Philip
