Dear Friend Although, I got your contact email discreetly via online during my personal search for someone who would assist me. Initially I was very reluctant in contacting you, however considering the fact that I cannot move out this fund in my own name, I was left with the only option of sending you an email. Please I urge you to accept my apologies for contacting you through this way, it was due to prompt access and confidentiality reposed on this medium, there should be no strings whatsoever attached to this. I am very confident that our individual virtues will be confirmed as we go further with this transaction, I have no cause to doubt your integrity, and I expect you also to give me benefit of doubt about my integrity. It is understandable that you might be a little bit apprehensive because you do not know me but I have a lucrative business proposal of mutual interest to share with you A special auditing panel set-up by the Boards of directors of the(RBS Bank)England, United Kingdom to investigate all credit account operated by it customers, that has been in operation for the last five (5) years. We discovered a credit account with Deposit N0: RBS645X34 floating with a huge fund amounting to (9,948,649.61 GBP United Kingdom Pounds) equivalent to 19,580,965.52 USD United States Dollars. On further trace I came across the file and found out that the true owner of this funds is Mr. Andreas Schranner, a German who was a property magnate but unfortunately lost his life, including his wife and their daughter in the plane crash (Flight AF4590) which crashed on July 31st 2000 killing all 109 people on board. For more information visit the web link below: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm I have been monitoring this account ever since I discovered this information and found out that nobody has ever come on behalf of the Late Mr. Andreas Schranner as his next of kin for this fund. I am contacting you as a reliable partner to execute this transaction with me. Upon your acceptance, I will provide you with his account file information?s and documents of deposit of the account and a text of application you will submit to the bank and I will then instruct you on how to claim as the next of kin to the late Mr. Andreas Schranner, so that the funds could be transferred to your Account for us to share, without any question arising from the bank. And for your information, the transfer payment to apply for as the next of kin should be Nine Million Nine and Fouthy Eight Hundred Thousand Six Hundred and Fouthy Nine Pounds (9,948,649.61 GBPs). As soon as you confirm your interest and co-operation with me, I will give you guidelines on how you can transact with the bank for the approval of the funds to your A/C.For more details reply to my personal Mailbox: email@example.com Regards James F. Peterson Auditor (RBS Bank) England, United Kingdom.
