Regardless of this issue we still wish to help prevent internet fraud and save people from internet loss. I have been interviewed and featured in various publications such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times & Daily News, The London Times & AARP Newsletters.

RE-TRANSFER OF £62,654,000.00 {Sixty Two Million Six
Hundred and Fifty Four Thousand British Pounds

Good day.

I am aware that this is certainly an unconventional
approach to starting a relationship. I am Mr.Mark
Howard,the personal account officer to the great late
diseased who has an account in one of the top banks
here in London, United Kingdom.

The account was opened in 2002 and he died in 2004
without a written or oral WILL and since 2004 nobody
has operated on this account again hence the money is
floating, and if I do not remit this money out
urgently it will be forfeited for nothing, and
Government of United Kingdom will confiscate the funds
for their personal use which I personally don't want
such incident to happen being that this is a great
opportunity in my life.

My contact is for you to please assist me to transfer
the fund {£62,654,000.00} from a Cooperate Bank here
in UK to an oversea account. First, I must solicit
your strictest confidence in this transaction.

This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly
confidential. I am sure and have confidence of your
ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of
this great magnitude. I solicit your assistance to
enable us transfer the said amount into your safe
account for onward investment.

You can either provide us with an existing account or
to set up a new Bank account immediately to receive
this money, even an empty a/c can serve to receive
this money, as long as you will remain honest to me
till the end of this important business, trusting in
you and believing in God that you will never let me
down in future because this business is my life.

The owner of this account is a foreigner and no other
person knows about this account or anything concerning
it, the account has no other beneficiary and until his
death he was the manager of the company. My
investigation through the National immigration
department and Ministries here proved to me as well
that he was single as at the time of his entry into
the United Kingdom. As a matter of fact, I have
decided to transfer this fund abroad for investment.

Your assistance as a foreigner is necessary because
the management of the bank will welcome any foreigner
who has correct information to this account which I
will give to you immediately, We will start the first
transfer with Forty Million {£40,000,000.00}.

Upon successful transfer without any disappointment
from your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of
the remaining balance of {£22, 654,000.00} Million to
your account. I am only contacting you as a foreigner
because this money cannot be approved to a local
person here due to law in United Kingdom.

If you are interested, please forward the following
information as below:

{1} Your Name/company's name and full address,
{2} Bank Name:............ ..........
{3} Bank Address.....................
{4} Account No:......................
{5} Swift Code...{if any}
{6} Account Holder's Name: ....................
{7} Your telephone Number.both Home, Office &
Cell/Mobile and fax Numbers.........................
{8} Your Occupation..............
{9} Your Valid ID ...................

Upon the receipt of the above details, payment will be
activated by the feeding of your data into payment
system, followed by a signal that will be sent to the
paying bank to remit the funds into your nominated
bank account within 7 official working days of receipt
of the above information.

Best Regards,
Mr.Mark Howard.
