Dear Friend

My name is Mr.Mark J.Clark, I am a senior banker in a bank here in the
United Kingdom. I am contacting you for a business transfer of a huge sum
of money from a deceased account. Though know that a transaction of this
magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring
you that every documents that will bring aboutthe success of this
transaction will be provided by an attorney here in london, and all will
be well at the end of the day. I decided to contact you due to the urgency
of this transaction.

The deceased person who died  Neal Walker died in air crash along with his
wife on the 31st October 1999 in an Egyptian airline 990 with other
passengers on board was an American Oil consultant/contractor with the
Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation. You can confirm his death from the
website below which was published by BBC WORLD NEWS.


Since his death, none of his next-of-kin are alive to make claims for this
money as his heir, because they all died in the same accident himself and
his wife (May their soul rest in peace). 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 seek your permission to stand  as a next of kin
to the deceased, as all documentations will be carefully worked to make
you the beneficiary to the funds USD17,600,000.00 (Seventeen Million, six
hundred Dollars Only) which will be released in your favor as the next of
kin. Because after Eight years the money will be called back to the bank
bond treasury as unclaimed bills and the money shared amongst the
directors of the bank. so it is on this note I decided to seek for whom
his name shall be used as the next of kin/beneficiary to this funds rather
than allow the bank directors to share this money amongst themselves at
the end of the year.

It may interest you to know that we have secured from the probate  an
order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries. Please
acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual business
endeavor by furnishing me with the following information if you are

1. Full names and address,
2. Telephone and fax Number.
3.A scan copy of your international passport or drivers license.

For our personal contact and mutual trust in each other. I shall be
compensating you with 50% of the above amount on final conclusion of this
project for your assistance, the balance 50% shall be for me , because I
intend to retire after the conclusion of this transaction.

If this proposal is acceptable by you, please endeavor to contact me

Do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you.

Best Regards,
