RE: REQUEST FOR URGENT BUSINESS TRANSACTION: ATTN: Please, I am enchanted using this tremendous opportunity to converse with you in this medium of communication. I am Mr Solomon Zulu. A statistician and an auditor by profession.Working with FIRST COMMERCIAL BANK [FCB] of South Africa as an efficiency consultant and the head of Bill and Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department of above bank.I am also a member of British Bankers Association. I am using this moment to give you the cognizance and also to seek your assistance to this business proposal. I got your contact over the internet. In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of $35.000.000.00 (Thirty Five Million Dollas)in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Mr Morris Thompson who died along with his entire family in Alaska Plane crash on February 4th 2000. View this website for verification http://archives.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/. Since his death, we have been expecting his next of kin 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 and financial policies but unfortunately all the efforts proved abortive. It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided as the head of my department to make this business proposal know to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safe keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bills. I quite know that you might be confused on receipt of my email as we have not met before either in person or by correspondence. But I contacted you due to the great need for the participation of a foreigner on this project. And with your profile i think you are eligible for this transaction. Like I have earlier informed you, the fund transfer cannot be approved to anybody in Benin Republic as the deceased is a certified foreigner, but on application of a foreigner with correct information of the account which I will forward to you as we proceed, the fund transfer will be approved. Do not view this as being illegal but an opportunity for us to enrich our hope in life instead of the bank converting this much money to the security funds. You should not nurse any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the smooth transfer of these funds and your acceptance is what will crown this effort. I will give you more setails when i hear from you soon. Best Regards, Mr Solomon Zulu. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ FOR MORE DETAILS ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ CONTACT INFO: Contact Name: Solomon Zulu.
