Dear Friend, 

Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics.I will introduce 
myself as Robert Johnson a staff in the accounts management section of a well-known bank here in 
the  United Kingdom . One of our accounts with holding balance of 15,000,000 (Fifteen Million 
British Pounds) has been dormant and has not been operated for the past 4 years. From my 
investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account a foreigner by name Austin Martins died 
in August 2000 and since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money 
because he has no family members who are aware of the existence of neither the account nor the 

Also Information from the National Immigration states that he was also  single on entry into the 
UK.I have secretly discussed this matter with  some of the bank officials and we have agreed to 
find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. We thus propose to do business with you, standing in 
as the next of kin of these funds from the deceased and funds released to you after due processes 
have been followed. 

This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is a legitimate and does not 
originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act. 

On your interest, let me hear from you :
