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 RESPONSE TO :
