I am contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a huge sum of money from a deceased account. I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.
 
PROPOSITION;
 
I discovered an abandoned sum of $42.5M in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family. Since his death, none of his relations has come forward to lay claims to this money as the heir. The bank cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased as all documentations will be carefully worked out by me for the fund $42.5M to be released in your favour as the beneficiary's next of kin. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual business endeavor by furnishing me with the following;
 
Your name: ............................
Your country: .........................
Your phone Number: ......................
Your Tel/fax: ...........................
Your age: ...............................
Your occupation: ......................
Photograph of yours with copy of your International Passport or driver's license............
Thank for your anticipated co-operation
 
These requirements will enable us file a letter of claim to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favour before the transfer can be made. I shall be compensating you with 40% on final conclusion of this project, while 50% will be for me and 10% will be for our any expenses that may come up. Your share stays with you while my own share shall be for investment purposes in your country.
 
If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you, I await your urgent email. Reply me at via mrrobertcole1@sify.com
 
Best Regards,
