Dear Friend, I am Ando Satoshi, Japanese national, an attorney at Law, and the official receiver in charge of administering the funds from the sale of the assets of the bankruptcy estate of Sphere Energy Japan. This is the real deal. By virtue of my position as the trustee of the bankruptcy estate, I have processed the claims of all the creditors and also issued out cheques for their claims. However, a certain surplus amounting to about Four Million Seven Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling (4,750,000.00) is yet to be disbursed out. To this end, I am seeking your assistance to transfer about Four Million Seven Hundred And Fifty Thousand British Pounds Sterling. I want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations. Please kindly note that upon the receipt of these funds from the financial institution, you shall invest it in your line of business and dispatch the profit to charitable home. As soon as i receive your response, I shall communicate with you, and let you know the details of the transfer. Whatever your actions and your decision are, I thank you for taking the time to read this email. Please note that this is not a scam as it does not require upfront payment but escrow payment.Regards, Ando Satoshi
