Dear Friend: 

Am Mr.Robert Duke, the Chief Auditor 
with NATWEST BANK PLC, LONDON-UK. One of our accounts, with holding 
balance of Â12.500 000,00 (Twelve Million Five Hundred thousand pounds 
Sterling) has been dormant and last operated for years ago. From my 
investigations, the owner of the said account,Is a foreigner by name 
Mr. John Shume Jda who died along with his entire family in crash at 
Birmingham Airport on 4th Jan, 2002.View this website for verification 

Since then, nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this 
money, as he has no family member that has any knowledge as to the 
existence of either the account or the funds; I have confidently 
discussed this issue with some of the bank officials and we have agreed 
to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. My proposition to you, 
is to seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin and 
beneficiary of this late client, So that the proceeds of this account 
valued a huge sum shall be paid to you, and then we can share the 
amount on a mutually agreed percentage of 30% for you, while 60% for me 
and others involved, 10% shall be used for miscellaneous expenses while 
the remainder shall be given to a reputable charity home because the 
money is owned by a deceased person.This transaction is totally free of 
risk and troubles as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from 
drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act, funds will be 
released to you after necessary processes have been followed.Let me 
hear from you as soon as you get this message, so we can proceed. For 
more questions or inquiries email to:-

Robert Duke (Mr) 
Chief Auditor
