Piraeus Bank SA, London Branch, Tower 42, 25 Old Broad Street, London, EC2N 1PB Dear Friend, I am Mr. Locozi Thomas. the Bank Manager of Piraeus Bank SA, London. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On August 19, 2004; Mr. Teva TETUANUI, a National of French Polynesia , who used to be a private contractor with the Shell Petroleum Development Company in Saudi Arabia. Mr. Teva TETUANUI Made a Numbered time (Fixed deposit) for 36 calendar months, valued at GBPЈ30, 000,000.00 (Thirty Million Pounds only) in my Branch. Upon maturity in 2007, 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 contract employers, Shell Petroleum Development Company in Saudi Arabia that Mr. Teva TETUANUI And his wife with their three children were involved in an auto crash, and all occupants of the vehicle Lost their Life. 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 therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Teva TETUANUI did not declare any next of kin or Relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. The sum of GBPЈ30,000,000.00 have been floating as unclaimed since 2001 in my bank as all efforts to get his relatives have hit the stones. According to the Isle of Man or British law at the expiration of 5 (FIVE) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the British Government if nobody applies to claim the fund and the FIVE years is the end of July 2008. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin / Will Beneficiary to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at GBPЈ30,000,000.00 can be transferred/paid to you.This will be disbursed or shared in these percentages, 60% to me and 40% to you. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest Co-operation, Confidentiality and A trust to enable us sees this transaction through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me urgently by E-mail and Provide me with the following; 1. Full Name 2. Your Telephone Number and Fax Number 3. Your Contact Address. 4. Your Age. Your urgent response will be highly anticipated and appreciated. Best regards, Mr. Locozi Thomas.
