Dear Mr/Mrs, My Name is Mr. Carlos Gomez; I am a Manager of a bank in Spain. I got your Contact through your country profile and I decided to get in touch with you through mail, to seek your cooperation on the bellow proposal. In my branch we have a good customer of us who has some big amount deposited with us and He died in a car accident in April 2005. Ever since he died, we have not heard anything about him or any of his family members to come forward and get back the money that was left in his account. As at of 28/02/2009, the balance in his account was Seven Hundred and Twenty Two Thousand, Five Hundred and Sixty Three Euros (€722,563.00) based on our bank policy, any account that is dormant for four year will be closed and the money transferred to consolidated reserve bank account. I decided that since this account will be four years by early next month, its better that I find somebody who will cooperate with me and get this money transfer to his account as a Next of Kin to the deceased. So what I want you to do is to let me know if you are ready to cooperate with me, by applying as the next of Kin to the above named person and I will provide to you all relevant information that will be required by my bank to get this done without any problem. This is risk free, as all loopholes will be closed once the money is transfer to your account. As for sharing of the money, we will share it 50/50 percent after the money is transfer to your account.
