This fund was a Maximum Return Capital ( MRC) of one of our investors who died almost NINE years ago without a next of kin to inherit the money. The policy of our bank is that any account that remains dormant for TEN years should be closed hence I want to move this money into your account before the deceased account is closed next year. Based on this policy therefore, I have since last three years placed this amount of 12,500.000.00 US Dollars(Twelve million five hundred thousand US Dollars) on a SUSPENCE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary. As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am requesting for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. There are practically no risk involved in this transaction. It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer to your nominated bank account anywhere you feel and all I need from you is the details of any bank you feel that I can wire the fund. If you are interested, please indicate so that we can discuss how you, me and my colleague in our bank will share the money the moment your account is credited. I will appreciate your timely response after which I will give you details of myself including the name of my bank and other relevant details you may wish to know ETC. Please, provide me the following: this is urgent please. 1. Your Full Name: 2. Your Phone Number: 3. Your Contact Address: 4. Your Proffession: Having gone through a methodical search, I decided to contact you hoping that you will find this proposal interesting.
