Dear: Compliment of the day to you! I am Daniel Ottis the branch Manager of Brazilian Banco Itaъ here in URUGUAY. today due to the economic crisis banco Itaъ are geting casting/collapse,In the process of auditing our accounts this quarter, I discovered that there is a dormant account with the sum of Three Hundred and Thirthy six Million URUGUAYOS PESOS(336,00000) which is One Million Four Hundred Thousand US dollars (1.400,0000) trapped in it. After thorough verifications and investigations, I discovered that the account owner is a foreigner his from SPAIN and that he is dead. This money can be paid to the relatives of our late customer only through our head office,before our banco quit from here in uruguay I have contacted you to present you as the next of kin to the deceased before our head office so that the money in the dormant account will be paid to you. The reason i contacted you to stand as the deceased next of kin is because the deceased operated this account secretly without the knowledge of anyone because he lied during his divorce that he didn't have any wealth except those he declared before the court and for this reason, he kept an open next of kin to this account. Since the dormant account is domiciled in my branch, I will provide you with all necessary information from my branch to back you up as the next of kin at our head office. I will also write a letter to our head office from my branch recommending that you are indeed the true next of kin to the deceased. In view of this, I am seeking for your co-operation and understanding to stand as the next of kin to our deceased customer to enable us claim the fund from our banco. If this idea is accepted by you, kindly reply to me at my private email,email@example.com and upon your reply, I will give you details. On getting your response, we shall discuss on the percentage ratio to share the money upon conclusion. Note that this mail is intended to you the Director of banco Itaъ: Address 18 Julio,Punta Carretas, Punta del Este Uruguay Head Office:Zabala 1463 11000 Montevideo, Uruguay Have a Nice Day Daniel Ottis.
