 FROM THE DESK OF : Todd Williams 

This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it as
serious could come into your mind but please consider it with a divine wish
and accept it with a deep sense of humility. Before proceeding, I wish to
introduce myself to you; I am Todd Williams  a staff of Natwest Bank plc
London. I am the head of the accounts department.I am pleased to get across
to you for a very urgent and profitable business proposal which I believe
will profit the both of us after completion. I contacted you after a careful
thought that you might be capable of handling this business transaction,
which i explained below. The sum of ( £ 12,500,000.00 Million Pounds), has
been floating as unclaimed since 2000 in my bank as all efforts to get across
the relatives of our client who deposited the money have hit the stones.
There is this immigrant Mr. Andreas schranner, property magnate who was based
in the U.K, who happens to be one of our very good clients. On the 25Th of
July 2000, Mr. Andreas schranner, his wife Maria , their daughter Andréa
eich, her husband Christian, and their children katharina and maximilian all
died in the air France concord plane crash bound for New York in their plan
for a world cruise.
All attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. My position here at my
office requires me to investigate and I therefore made further investigations
and discovered that Mr. Andreas Schranner did not declare any next of kin or
relation in all his official documents, including his bank deposit paperwork
in my bank.According to the British Law. The money will revert to the
ownership of the British government if nobody applies to claim the fund. To
avoid this money being sent to the British treasury as unclaimed funds, I
have decided to seek your assistance to have you stand as his next of kin so
that the said fund ( £ 12,500,000.00 million pounds), would be released in
your name as the next of kin and paid into your account.All documents and
proof that will have you claim this fund will be forwarded to you without any
stress upon your response to this mail more soon, i want to inform you that i
have unanimously agreed to offer you (£4m) of the total sum for the
assistance and role you are going to play in this transaction,(£2m)will be
given to charity organisations in your country with your supervision while
the remaining will be for me. Please send your confidential telephone and fax
number in your reply to this business transaction.PLEASE CHANNEL YOUR
