Good Day, I am Mrs. Kate Walter. Deputy senior regional manager .at a Lloyds TSB Bank Plc. England. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On June 6, 2000, Mr. Barry Kelly made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for forty-eight months, (being four years) valued at Ј2,000,000.00, (Two Million British Pounds Sterling) 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. Barry Kelly died from tsunami on his holidays in Thailand 26 December 2006. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a (WILL), and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I further investigation and discovered that Mr. Barry Kelly did not declare any kin or relations in all his official Documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of Ј2,000,000.00 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 (Manager 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 they can be able to move it to your country where i can come and join you to initiate a suitable business we can invest this fund. 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 private/mobile telephone fax number so that we can have a smooth communication. Thanks and regards. Mrs. Kate Walter.
