Dear Friend, Firstly i apologise for intruding into your privacy, do kindly permit me to introduce myself. I am Jason Kane, a banker by profession with Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) South Africa. I have taken time out to source the right individual, which is your humble self. I possess valuable and classified information of great interest which i wish to share with you. I also need to ascertain your dispositions towards receiving and utilising information from me that guarantees you being legally acknowledged as the sole surviving relative an investor (name with-held) died without naming a next of kin to his fund in my bank (next of kin). The proceeds of this account valued at $15.500.000.00 million dollars can be paid to you and then you and i can share the money, 50% to me amounting to US$7,750,000.00 dollars and 40% for you amounting to US$6,200.000.00 and 10% amounting to US$1,550,000.00 for miscellaneous expenses that might arise. I would want you to understand that this is a DEAL. I have all the legal and Banking details of the deceased client that will facilitate our putting you forward as the claimant/beneficiary of the funds and ultimately transfer of the $15.5M.Consequently, my proposal is that i will like you as a Foreigner to stand in as the next of kin of the funds deposited in my bank. I am writing you because i as a public servant, i cannot operate a foreign account. Contact me with your full legal names and contact telephone number for further verbal correspondence. You must maintain a great deal of confidentiality towards this endeavour. Awaiting your urgent reply via email. Thanks and my regards. Mr. Jason Kane NOTE: If however, you are not disposed to assist, kindly delete/destroy this email in view of the confidentiality of the proposed transaction and interest of personalities involved.
