I wish to seek your assistance for the transfer of US$25M depository made by a foreign investor that has remained dormant for years now.
This money cannot be approved to a local bank account holder, but can only be approved to a foreigner. If you will stand as next of kin to the fund, it will be shared 50%/50%, As this is a TWO-man business deal transaction.
I shall provide you with more details that will help you understand the transaction. I need your assistance and co-operation to this reality.
If interested, I will like you to provide immediately your full Names and Address, Date of Birth, Occupation, Tel & Fax Numbers so that an Attorney will be able to prepare the necessary documents which will put you as the next of kin.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, I expect that you will not take undue advantage of the trust I Will bestow on you. I anticipate your urgent response.
