Compliments of the day!
I got your contact on my private search for a reliable and trusted
person to handle a transaction of this nature. I know that the
contents of this mail might sound so strange, but I want to assure you that every word
of it is true.
I am DOM LIN a Financial Consultant to a deceased Immigrant Mr
Andreas Schranner,property magnate who was based in the U.K., who
happens to be my client. On the month of July 2000, my client, his wife Maria,
their daughter Andrea Eich, her husband Christian, and their children
Katharina and Maximilian all died in the Air France concord plane crash bound for
New Yorkin their plan for a world cruise,
Since then I have been managing his properties here in the U.K. and
some others which he put out for sale. The properties which have long
been put out on sale have now been paid for and now the money paid has
long been deposited into his local bank account here. I have contacted you
to assist in repatriating the money and estate left behind by my client
before they get seized or declared unserviceable by his bank.
Particularly, the bank has issued me with a notice to provide any of
his beneficiary or have the account confisticated within a short period of time.
my late client has an account valued at 10.3 Million United States
Dollars Only. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating any of my
clients relatives for some time now and with no one coming forward since my
client passed on and with the bank now giving me a deadline, I now seek your
consent to present you as the beneficiary to my deceased client, so that the
proceeds of his account valued at 10.3 Million UnitedStates Dollars
Only can be paid to you. This I intend we share amongst ourselves in the ratio of
50% to me and 40% for you while the balance 10% we shall use for settling
any miscellaneous expenses that might arise.
I have all the necessary information that can be used to back up any
Claim that we may make and I can assure you that you shall be paid
this amount as the beneficiary of the funds of my late client. All I
require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee
that this will be executed under alegitimate arrangement that will protect you
from any breach of the law. Trust me as his personal consultant that this
is a risk-free transaction. Please get in touch with me via my confidential
email, and send me the following information:
1)Your full names and address as you want them used in the payment
2)Telephone and fax numbers .Upon receipt of this information,we shall
discuss further about thistransaction.
Thank you in anticipation of your cooperation.
