Good day, Got to know of you in search for a reputable and reliable person to assist me in an urgent need requiring utmost trust and confidentiality, while browsing the internet after I have decided on what to do as regards the matter. I am Mrs. Sheila Williams El-Khaffaggy, Corporate control Officer of RAK Bank, United Arab Emirate. I am writing this letter to ask for your support and co-operation to carry out this business opportunity in my department. I discovered an abandoned sum of US$8.2 million in an account that belongs one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family of a wife and three children in a train crash in Spain http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_depth/2961302.stm After further investigation I also discovered that my Late Customer did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also earlier confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. He instructed I keep it very confidential. What bothers me most is that according to the new laws of my country at the expiration of Six years of maturity the funds will revert to the ownership of the EMIRATE Government without future compensation if nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to my Late Customer so that you will be able to receive his funds. Because I do not want the fund go into the hands of corrupt government officials. To commence this transaction, I require you to immediately indicate your interest by a return response via my Private E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org My warm regards, Mrs. Sheila Williams El-Khaffaggy
