I am Dr.christopher kanu  from Harlsden, North West London, here in England. I 
work in one of the banks in united kingdom. I am writing you  from my office 
that will be of an inmense benefit for both of us. In my department, being the 
Assistant Manager (Greater London Regional Office), I discovered an abandoned 
Entity in an account that belongs  to one of our foreign customer Late 
Mr.Thompson Morrison  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.
The choice of contacting you is aroused from the geographical nature of where 
you live, particularly due to the sensivity of the transaction.and the 
confidentiality herein. Now our bank has been  waiting for any of the 
relatives to come-up for the claim but nobody has done that. I personally has 
been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for 2 years now. 

I seek your consent to present you as the Next-of-Kin/Will Beneficiary to the 
deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at 12.5 Million Dollars 
can be paid to you. This will be disbursed or shared in these percentages -  
60% to me and 40% to you. I have secured all necessary  legal documents that 
can be used to back up this claim we are making. All I need is to fill in your 
names to the documents and legalise it in the court here to prove you as the 
legitimate beneficiary. All I require  now is your honest Co-operation, 
Confidentiality and Trust to enable us see this transaction through. I 
guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that 
will protect you from any breach of the law.
Please, provide me the following: this is urgent please.

1. Your Full Name:
2. Your Phone Number:
3. Your Contact Address:
4. Your Proffession: 
Having gone through a methodical search, I decided to contact you hoping that 
you will find this proposal interesting. Please on your confirmation of this 
message and indicating your interest, I will  furnish you with more 
information. Endeavor to let me know your decision rather than keep me waiting.
