Dear Friend,


I am contacting you with regards to a business transfer
of a huge sum of money from a deceased's account. Though
I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any
one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that
all will be well at the end of the day.

We decided to contact you due to the urgency of this claim
as we discovered an abandoned sum of US$20,000,000.00
(Twenty Million Dollars) in an account that belongs to one
of our foreign customers who died along with his entire
family in a fatal road accident.

Since his death, none of his next-of-kin or relations has
come forward to lay claims to this money as the heir. My
associate and I found you to be from the same country and
with the same surname as our client and we were in effect
compelled to contact you immediately.

We cannot release the funds from his account unless someone
applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidelines. Upon this discovery,
we now seek your permission to have you stand as a next-of-
kin to the deceased as all documentations will be carefully
worked out by us for the funds (US$20,000,000.00) to be
released in your favour as the beneficiary's next-of-kin.
It may interest you to note that we have secured from the
probate an order of mandamus to locate any of deceased's
beneficiaries. Please acknowledge receipt of this message
in acceptance of our mutual business endeavour by furnishing
me with the following;

1. Your Full name and physical address.
2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers.
3. Information regarding your date of birth.

These requirements will enable us file a letter of claim
to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals in
your favour before the transfer can be made. We shall be
compensating you with 4 Million Dollars on final conclusion
of this project, while the rest shall be for us. Your share
stays with you while we come over to collect the rest from
you immediately it hits your nominated account for private

If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue
advantage of the trust we have bestowed in you, I await
your urgent mail through my confidential email address only;

Sincerely yours,

Alan Smith.
