Attn: Beneficiary,

I am the new executive director and head of operations of Overseas Credit
Commission London, UK. Sometime ago, in our organization your overdue
consignment fund was brought to our office for final delivery clearance.

However, upon my arrival to this office, I found your consignment clearance
file lying fallow on my desk without any attention. On a thorough scrutiny I
discovered that your consignment have been abandoned by your delivery agent.
Meanwhile, I have made several attempts to contact your delivery agent but to
no avail.

To my greatest surprise, during my recent routine checking, I personally
discovered that your consignment content declaration documents stated that
your consignment contains personal effects meanwhile, it contains United
States dollar bills worth  US$ 1 Million dollars, which made it impossible
for the consignment to be delivered to you earlier before now.

Based on this personal discovery, I am contacting you now to let you know that
with my position and power in this office, I can assist you to legally clear
your consignment fund, but you must agree with the following conditions: You
must not disclose to any member of my organization whatever assistance that I
am going to render to you in respect of clearing this consignment fund into
your custody. You will provide me with an authenticated promissory note,
otherwise known as partnership agreement, that upon the safe arrival of the
consignment fund to your custody, that you give me 30% of the total fund
contained in the consignment. You must give adequate attention to this matter
until we successfully and legally clear the consignment fund into your

Upon your acceptance with my above conditions, I will furnish you with further details of what should be done to legally get the consignment fund cleared and
delivered to you as the rightful owner of the consignment. Meanwhile, if you
know that you would be unable to keep the secret of my assistance to you in
this regards, please do not border to reply. Hence the consignment fund would
be recovered into our organization treasury account as unclaimed consignment
fund. But if you can assure me of your competency to keep this secret, I would like to hear from you soon as possible so that I can email you further details
and guidelines.

I am looking forward to your earliest response.

Have a Great Day

Mr. Bryan Rowe
Head of Operations
