Dear.Sir/Madam, My name is Mr. jorge krause, I am employed in Royal Bank of Elroy. I got your contact from International Directory,I have seen that you seem like an honest and trustworthy person who can handle confidential business with me. What I am about to disclose to you is highly confidential and I trust that you will keep my confidence. A sum of USD$3.5,000 was supposed to be moved from my bank to Kuwait, a certain client through a courier services department. After doing all the processes to move the funds the package containing the fund was returned to me a couple of times, reason being the recipient did not turn up to receive or claim it.. I have kept this money deposited with a save fund department here in England. The reason for contacting you is that I have decided to retire and settle down in any country of my choice, now I want to move the fund out of England, where you will receive it and keep it safe until I come over to meet with you in person. I have made all the arrangements and plans to enable me to move the money from England. If you are willing to cooperate with me on this assignment; Send me your international passport and a copy of your driverâs license as what I need is just any form of your identification to make sure who i am sending this fund to, including your phone number where I can reach you: Best regards, Mr.(jorge krause)
