Dear Friend, 

I am Mr. MarK Jeff operation Manager of Philippine
National Bank Plc. 
London, I have urgent and very confidential business
proposition for 
you. On June 6, 2000, Mr. Daniel Ramesh made a
numbered time (Fixed) 
Deposit for forty-eight months, (being four years)
valued at US$40,000,000.00, (forty Million, Dollars)
in my branch. 

Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his
forwarding address 
but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder
and finally we 
discovered from his employers, that Mr. Daniel Ramesh
died from tsunami 
on his holidays in Thailand 26 December 2004. 

On further investigation, I found out that he died
without making a 
WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin were

I therefore made further investigation and discovered
that Mr. Daniel 
Ramesh did not declare any kin or relations in all his
official documents, including his Bank Deposit
paperwork in my Bank. 

This sum of US$40,000,000 has carefully been moved out
of my bank to a security company for safekeeping. No
one will ever come forward to claim it. According to
British Law, at the expiration of (three) years, the
money will revert to the ownership of the British
Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. 

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you to
stand in as the owner of the money I deposited it in a
security company in two trunk boxes though the
security company does not know the contents of the
boxes as I tagged them to be photographic materials
for export. I am writing you because I as a public
servant (working with the bank), I cannot 
operate a foreign account or have an account that is
more than $1m. 

I want to present you as the owner of the boxes in the
security company so you can be able to claim them with the help of my
attorney. This is simple. I will like you to provide
immediately your full names and address so that the
Attorney will prepare the necessary documents which
will put you in place as the owner of the boxes. 

The money will be moved out for us to share in the
ratio of 70% for me and 30% for you. There is no risk
at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will
be done by the Attorney and this will guarantees the
successful execution of this transaction. 

If you are interested, please reply immediately via my
email address upon your response, I shall then provide
you with more details and relevant documents that will
help you understand the transaction. Please observe
utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both of us
because I shall 
require your assistance to invest my share in (Buying
of properties like houses, hotels and doing charity
works etc) Please do send me your direct contact
address and private/mobile 
telephone fax number so that we can have a smooth

Awaiting your urgent response Via my private

Thanks and regards,

Mr.Mark Jeff.
