Compliments of the day,

Permit me to introduce myself to you. My name is John Williams, Auditor and Accountant of the above Finance Corporation in London, United Kingdom.
I came to know about you in my private search for a reliable person/company to handle an important assignment on behalf of myself.

PROPOSITION: A German Andreas Schranner, German property magnate had in our Bank the sum of 48,758,000 (Forty Eight, Million Seven Hundred and Fifty Eight Thousand British Pounds Sterling) in a domiciliary account. Unfortunately, he was killed in a air crash accident in Paris. Efforts had been
made by the management of my bank through the German Embassy to contact any of the deceased next of Kin but to no avail. We later discovered that he died with all his Family in the crash.

Given the skeletal information available to the bank, it has so far been impossible to reach any of the relatives. The situation left for the Management is to declare the deceased account dormant and revert the funds to trading for interest to the Bank. In order to avoid this development, I now seek your approval to have you stand as a distant relative to Andreas Schranner,so that the money would be released and transfer to you.

All documents and proofs to enable you get the money will be carefully packaged once I receive your consent on this proposal. I shall apply for a l
eave as soon as the funds get into your reliable account to come to your country for sharing and investments which you will assist me in doing.
May I assure you that this is safe and risk-free, as I have taken care of all necessary modalities to ensure a hitch-free movement. Thank You for taking out the time in reviewing this request, as I will stand by the strength of your response, and look forward to speaking with you soon. I may be reach
ed directly at +44-701-119-8077.

I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me.

Best Regards,
John Williams
