INPORTANT FUND APPROVAL NOTICE
From: Andrea Mark.
Subject: Inheritance Fund
Date: March 18th, 2009.
I apologize if the contents hereunder are contrary to your moral ethics, but please treat it with absolute secrecy and courtesy.I am Andrea Mark an Auditor in a commercial Bank here in my country. In the process of auditing our foreign bank accounts this first quarter, I and my colleague discovered a dormant account valued at $7,394,890.00 (Seven Million, Three Hundred and Ninety Four Thousand, Eight Hundred and Ninety United State Dollars) and after due verification of this account, we were able to find out that the account owner is late, and that is why the account has been dormant and as such the funds are lying unclaimed in our bank. And if nobody comes up to put a claim to the funds in a period of time, our bank will confiscate the funds.
Thus, I and my colleague just concluded a meeting and we came up with the idea of presenting a foreigner to act as the next of kin to the deceased customer in question, so as to have the funds paid to you by our bank as heir and rightful beneficiary of the funds. Afterwards, both parties (you and I) shall disburse the funds according to percentage we shall both agree upon, before the commencement of the transaction.In view of this, I seek your co-operation and understanding to stand as the next of kin to the deceased customer to enable us file a claim over the funds. All modalities have been put in place to make this a reality if you agree to work with us in confidence and trust.If this proposal is OK by you and you do not wish to take undue advantage of my trust, kindly reply immediately to enable me enlighten you on how we are to proceed to accomplish this
transaction.On getting your response, we shall agree on the sharing ratio. Though, I intend to invest my own share of the money into real estate or any lucrative business in your country and would appreciate if you can put me in the right part where I can invest my money at the conclusion of this deal.Be rest assured that this business is 100% risk free and legitimate as I have done all the necessary home work before contacting you.
Awaiting a prompt response from you.
