Dear Friend,
I am contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a huge sum of money from a deceased 
account. Though  I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and 
worried , but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day. I decide to contact 
you due to the urgency of this transaction.  I am a banker base in the London United Kingdom(UK) I 
discovered an abandoned sum of twenty two million three hundred thousand United States dollars ($ 
22, 300, 000m) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his 
entire family. Since his death, none of his next-of-kin or relations has come forward to lay claims 
to this money as the heir. We cannot release the fund 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,i now carrfully moved this fund out of the bank and keep it with a private firm whos name 
is withheld for now untill we open communication and build a mutual relationship. I am now seeking 
your permission to have you stand as the beneficiary to the said fund so that you can help me claim 
it successfully without any problem. It may interest you to note that we have secured from the 
probate an order of madamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries but to no avail. Please 
acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of my mutual business endeavour by furnishing me 
with the following;

1.Your Full Names and Address.
2.Direct Telephone and Fax numbers.
These requirements will enable me file a letter of claim to the appropriate departments for 
necessary approvals in your favor before the claim can be made. I shall be compensating you with 30 
% on final conclusion of this project, while the rest shall be for me. Your share stays with you 
while the rest shall be for me for investment purposes in your country. If this proposal is 
acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust i have bestowed in you, I await your 
urgent email. Awaiting  your reply  
Mr John Philip
