How are you today? I hope you are doing well? I am Mr. Mohammed Jallaf, a Bank Officer here in U. A. E. I have been in search of someone in your country for this business transaction I am about to explain to you, so when I saw your contact details online, I was pushed to contact you and see how best we can assist each other. I believe it is the wish of God for me to come across you now. I am having an important business discussion I wish to share with you which I believe will interest you, as you are going to benefit immensely from it.
One Late Peter Adams, a citizen of your country had a fixed deposit account with my bank in 2005 for 60 calendar months, valued at US$31,600,000.00 (Thirty One Million, Six Hundred Thousand US Dollars) the due date for this deposit contract was last 21st of January 2010. Sadly Michael was among the death victims in the 2006 Tsunami disaster, Indonesia that killed over 6,000 people. He was in Indonesia on a business trip and that was how he met his end. My bank management is yet to know about his death, I knew about it because he was my friend and I am his account relationship officer. Michael did not mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the account wasestablished, and he was not married and no children. Last week my Bank Management requested that Michael should give instructions on what to do about his account, if to renew the contract.
I know this will happen and that is why I have been looking for a means to handle the situation, because if my Bank Directors happens to find out that Michael is dead and do not have any Heir, they will take the funds for their own personal use, so I don't want such to happen. That was why when I saw your contact details online I was happy and I am now seeking your co-operation to present you as Next of Kin/ Heir to the account, since you come from the same country with him and my bank head quarters will release the account to you. There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a legitimatearrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of law.
It is better that we claim the money, than allowing the Bank Directors to take it, they are rich already. I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the funds equal parts, 50/50% to both parties, my share will assist me to start my own company which has been my dream.
Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information as TOP SECRET. We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent
Have a nice day and God bless. Anticipating your urgent response.
Mr. Mohammed Jallaf.
