From The Auditor/Head
Banco Santander Central Hispano-Madrid.
My name is Mr. James Desmond, and I work in the international operation
Department in a Local Bank here in Banco Santander Central
Hispano-Madrid. On a routine inspection I discovered a dormant
domiciliary account with a BAL.Of 36,000,000 (Thirty Six Million
Dollars) on further discreet Investigation, I also discovered that the
account holder has long since passed away (dead) leaving no beneficiary
to the account.
The bank will approve this money to any foreigner because the former
operator of the a/c is a foreigner and from United Kingdom in
particular and I am certainly sure that he is dead, and nobody will
come again for the claim of this money A foreigner can only claim this
money with legal claims to the account Holder; therefore I need your
cooperation in this transaction.
I will provide the necessary information needed in order to claim this
Money, But you will need to open an account where this can be
transferred. If interested send your private Telephone No. And Fax
number including full details of the account to be used for the Deposit
I wish for utmost confidentiality in handling this transaction as my
job and the future if my family would be jeopardized if it were
breached.I want to assure you that the transaction is without risk if
due process is followed accordingly.
Finally,I will give you 30% for your corporation,while 65% will be for
us then, the remaining 3% will be used to offset the bills incurred in
the Course of the transfer while 2% will be for charity.
Thanks for your co-operation
