From- Dr. Andrew Perio
Director - Banca Nationale Del Italiana,
Via F.guicciardini 20
I wish to use this medium to get in touch with you, I am Dr. Andrew Perio
the Director of (B.N.I.) Banca Nationale Del Italiana, Italy. I am
writing in respect of our foreign customer of my Bank - Mr. Arthur Smith
of America with account number GFS-100144986-00, who perished in a
plane crash of 31st October 2001 (With Egyptian Airline 990) with other
passengers aboard. Since the demise of Mr. Smith, I personally have watched with
keen interest to see the next-of-kin, but all has proved abortive as no one
has come to claim his funds of USD $ 2 million (Two Million United States
Dollars) with our Bank here for a very long time.
On this note I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the
next-of-kin, as no one as come-up to put a claim as the next-of-kin to this
fund and the Banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than
five (5) years, because after six (6) years the money will be called back to
the Bank treasury as unclaimed bill. In view of this i got your contact
through my country's foreign trade mission after i was convinced in my
mind that your name could be used as the next-of-kin to this claim. The
request of the foreigner as a next-of-kin in this business is occasioned by the
fact that the customer was a foreigner and an italian cannot stand as
the next-of-kin to a foreigner.
I have agreed to share this money with you in the mutual understanding
of 60%/40%. You keep 40% while i keep 60%, how about that? thereafter i
will visit your country for our percentage disbursement as i am almost due
I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is 100%
hitch-free and that you should not entertain any fear as the whole required
arrangement has been perfected for the transfer.
You should contact me as a matter of fact immediately.
Hoping to hear from you.
Please, you are advised to keep this transaction top secret, as I am
still in service and intend to retire from service after I conclude this deal
with you. I will be monitoring the whole situation here in the Bank
until you confirm the money is in your account. Before I can come down to
your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to the percentages
Lastly, I will like to inform you that I will take care of the Bank-to-Bank
transfer charges and the Lawyer's consultation fee, while you will take
care of the documentation charges that will be procurred by the lawyer
and will be delivered to you through a first class courier service
delivered to your mailing address.
Call me as soon as you receive this mail for more directives on how to
proceed on this transaction. My direct line is +393201445342 or reply to my
