    Dear Good Day,

    I got your contact through Mrs. Kate Smith in my search for a reliable
    and trust worthy person to handle risk free transaction.

    I am Mr. David Larson account Manager of United Bank International
    (UBI) Switzerland. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition
    for you. On December 29th 2002, an American contractor with the Government of Switzerland, Mr. Michael Creek made a numbered time (Fixed) deposited for twelve calendar months, valued at Thirty-five Million dollars (35million) in my branch. Upon maturity, 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, that Mr. Michael Creek died from an automobile
    accident. On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Michael Creek did not declare any next of kin in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork.

    This sum of 35million is still sitting in United Bank International and the
    interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year.
    No one will come forward to claim it. According to the laws of country, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you to assist me fully as foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Michael creek so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide me immediately with your full names and address so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits, which will put you in place as the next of kin.

    We shall employ the services of two attorneys for drafting and
    notarization of the WILL and obtain the necessary documents and letter
    of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. A bank account
    in any part of the world, which you will provide, will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 30% for you while 10% will be set aside for miscellaneous expenses.

    There is no risk involved in this transaction, as very necessary
    paperwork for this fund, will be done by the attorney and my position
    as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction.

    Hope this mail will meet your perfect understanding.
    For confidentiality, kindly forward your reply to [email protected]
    Best Regards
    Mr. David Larson (GP)
