Ref No: BC/IPF-03TF Sir, Re: Bank transfer your US$2,500,000.00 We wish to inform you that after thorough review of all contract, inheritance, lottery and unclaimed funds, your name was forwarded to our bank for the review and transfer of your long delayed funds starting with a first part transfer of US$2,500,000.00 to your bank account. However, we are surprised to receive another application this morning from your representative, MR.JOHN E. COHORST stating that you gave him a "Power of Attorney" to be the beneficiary of your funds. MR.JOHN E. COHORST made us to believe that you are dead and that he is your next of kin, hence we got your email address from our database and decided to send a message hoping to find out if you are dead or alive and if at any time you gave MR.JOHN E. COHORST, a Power of Attorney to represent you and transfer your funds to the account below: NATIONAL BANK OF AUSTRALIA DEAKEN AVE MILDURA VICTORIA - AUSTRALIA 3500 ACCOUNT NUMBER: 897101504 ACCOUNT BENEFICIARY: MR.JOHN E.
