Subject: My Dear Friend,I discovered an abandoned shipment containing GB£25Million

My Dear Friend,

I am Mr.Desmond Harvey the Assistant Director Inspection Unit/United Nations Inspection agent in London Heathrow Airport. During my recent withheld package routine check at the Airport Storage Vault, I discovered an abandoned shipment from a Diplomat in London and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in the Metal Trunk Boxes weighing approximately 605.00 kg.

The consignment was abandoned because the Contents of the consignment was not properly declared by the consignee as "MONEY" rather it was declared as "PERSONAL EFFECT" to avoid interrogation and also the inability of the diplomat to pay for the Non Inspection Charges which is about GB£7,800.

On my assumption, the box will contain more than GB£25Million to GB£30Million and the consignment is still left in our Storage House here at the London Heathrow Airport till date. The details of the

consignment including your name, your email address and the official document from the United Nations office in Geneva are tagged on the Metal Trunk box.

However, to enable me confirm if you are the actual recipient of this consignment as the assistant director of the Inspection Unit, I will advise you provide your full name, current Phone Number and current residential Address, to enable me cross check if it corresponds with the address on the official documents including the name of nearest Airport around your city.

Please note that this consignment is supposed to have been returned to the United Kingdom Treasury Department as unclaimed delivery due to the delays in concluding the clearance processes so as a result of this, I will not be able to receive your details on my official email account. So in order words to enable me cross check your details, I will advise you send the required details to my personal email address which is ( for quick processing and response. Once I confirm you as the actual recipient of the trunk box, I can get everything concluded within 24hours upon your acceptance and proceed to your address for delivery.

Lastly, be informed that the reason I have taken it upon myself to contact you personally about this abandoned consignment is because I want us to transact this busines and share the money equally since the consignment has not yet been returned to the United Kingdom Treasury Department after being abandoned by the diplomat so immediately the confirmation is made, I will pay for the Non Inspection Fee and arrange for the box to be delivered to your doorstep to avoid any more trouble. But I will share it 60%/40% with you. But you have to assure me of my 40% share.

I am on inspection just email me and make sure you include your mobile number so that I can give you a call. I wait to hear from you urgently if you are still alive.

Best regards,

Mr.Desmond Harvey

Assistance Inspection Director

Heathrow International Airport London UK.
