Hello Dear, Good wishes to you and your family. I thank you very much for your reply and anticipated support towards this project. I am Dr. Desmond Bruss, the manager of auditing and accounting department of Ecobank International Ltd. Before we continue, I wish to enlighten you briefly on this project. On a routine inspection I discovered a dormant account with Balance of 34,000,000.00 - Thirty Four Million Dollars and on further analysis, I also discovered that the account holder is Late Mr. John Shumejda, an American Citizen, and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of AGCO, the Global Agricultural Equipment Manufacturer. He died in Plane crash at Birmingham Airport on 4th Jan, 2002. Reference :http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/1742404.stm He died leaving no beneficiary to the bank account, and the bank will approve this money to any foreigner who have information about this financial credit. The banking law and principle at Ecobank International stipulate that if such funds remain unclaimed after fifteen years, the money will be transferred into the bank's treasury account as unclaimed dormant fund. For that reason I wish to ask for your teamwork, indulgence and support to stand as the next-of-kin to late Mr. John Shumejda which I will provide all the necessary information needed to back you up in this transaction. Meanwhile, I have worked out the modalities and mechanism by which the fund can be claimed in any of our 6 Clearing Houses without any hitches. Furthermore, I wish to propose a sharing ratio of (50/40), 40% of the total amount to be for you after the transfer has been successfully completed and 10% to be used for taking care of any cost that we might incur during the transaction. I want to assure you that this transaction is totally risk-free and your full silence is expected on this affair. With all due respect, kindly provide below information while I furnish you with more details and necessary procedure to completing this transaction successfully. FULL NAME: NATIONALITY: HOUSE ADDRESS: BUSINESS ADDRESS PHONE NUMBERS: MOBILE NUMBERS OCCUPATION: ACCOUNT DETAILS: Please provide a copy of your driver's license or passport. I have attached a copy of my working id for your perusal. Urgently waiting for you. Dr. Desmond Bruss DUIVFKSHMSUFGOFMQZSPUDVPPFMKTPJZJQSVVV
