Dear friend. I will like to begin by way of introduction. My name is Theresa Macdavis. I am an officer with a Finance Company here in Amsterdam the Netherlands. The purpose of this letter is to solicit your assistance in a matter of utmost financial interest which would be of immense benefit to us upon completion. The said financial interest, which is valued at US$1.5 Million represents a Lottery winning pay settlement for Mr. Van Bouderwijn. Under the terms of the transfer of claims entitlement entered into between Mr.Van Bouderwijn and the finance company (my employer), Mr.Van Bouderwijn was scheduled to claim the balance of his entitlement in the amount mentioned above since November 2005. Since then, several attempts have been made without success to contact Mr. Van Bouderwijn or any of his close relatives in whose favor the cash value of his settlement can be paid. I am quite aware that you may feel completely taken aback and unsure about what my intentions may be. Honestly, I must confess that my colleague and I have being monitoring this account for six months till now. And now that Mr.Van Bouderwijn still has not come forward to claim his entitlement, my colleague and I have decided to work together to get this achieved for our benefit. Since we are in the relevant department, and familiar with the procedures of filing and claiming entitlements, we are very confident that with your cooperation, the entitlement can be ours for good. Please we urge you to keep this matter very confidential as we are still currently employed by the Finance Company. I want to assure you that my colleague and I are in a position to make the payment of this entitlement possible, provided you are ready to meet with us, and give us a very strong guarantee that our share Will be well secured, and that you will not take advantage of our position, since the cash value of the entitlement will be paid to a bank account directly under your control. Please be rest assured that there is absolutely nothing to worry about in view of this claim. It is perfectly safe with no risk involved, and it is not subject to form of inquiry, since we will be handling the claim process directly in Netherlands on your behalf. I do hope this proposal is acceptable to you. Please acknowledge the receipt of this letter through my colleague's email : email@example.com , his name is Mr.Robert Hestley, so that he can provide you with more clarification about the claim, and how we intend to make this deal beneficial to everyone involved. Please reply with this email: firstname.lastname@example.org Sincerely Yours, Mrs. Theresa Macdavis.
