From: Robert Adamson Email: firstname.lastname@example.org A DEAL INVOLVING US$18.5 MILLION I have a proposal for you which I think may be of interest and benefit both of us if we can do this together. However, this correspondence is unofficial, private and confidential and it should be treated as such. At first I will like to assure you that this transaction is 100% trouble free to both parties. My name is Robert Adamson. I work as an independent auditor and handle accounts with various banks here in UK especially accounts relating to credits and foreign bills. On a routine inspection I discovered a dormant domiciliary account with a Balance of US$18,500,000.00 (Eighteen Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S Dollars) only. On further investigation, I also discovered that the account holder has died long ago with his family on a fatal Auto-accident leaving no beneficiary to the account and no other person knows about this account. I am in close contact with the manager of the bank here who is a party to this deal and he is willing to approve the transfer to any reliable and trustworthy foreign bank account outside the UK because the former operator of the a/c is a foreign national from Saudi Arabia. He has no WILL attached to the account, no beneficiary and nobody will come again for the claim of this money. We need a foreigner who can claim this money with legal backing to the account holder which I will provide if you are interested, therefore I need your cooperation in this regard. The difference in country of origins is no hindrance to the success of this transaction. This money will remain useless in this dormant account if we do not transfer the fund out to a foreign account, it is a great opportunity. I will provide the necessary information and documents needed in order to claim this money. I only need your cooperation as a foreigner to be the receiver of this money. We have put up all arrangement to ensure a smooth transfer of the fund to the account which you will nominate. You should also provide me with your direct phone numbers for easy communication. I wish for utmost confidentiality in handling this transaction. At the conclusion of this transaction, your share will be 30% of the total transfer sum, 65% for me and my partner while 5% will be set aside for any incidental expenses. I will meet with you after the successful transfer for sharing according to the agreed percentages. If you agree to handle this reply to me through this email address: email@example.com Let me hear from you URGENTLY. I will give you my full contact details as soon as I hear from you Best Regards, Robert Adamson
