I am contacting you to assist in repatriating and securing the wealth left behind in a fixed deposit account by Mr. Brumley, before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by Eco Bank Plc where my client operates an account worth $USD75 Million Dollars. The board of Eco Bank Plc has issued me a notice that after 2 months from now and no next of kin shown up for the claiming of the said funds, the funds will be confiscated and declared unserviceable. Since I and my team have been unsuccessful in locating George Brumley's relatives for sometime now, it on this note that I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin of the deceased since you are a foreigner, so that the proceeds of this deposit valued at $USD75 Million Dollars can be released to you for our mutual benefits. 1. Your Full Names 2. Home/ mailing address 3. Phone Numbers 4. Age 5. Occupation 6. Copy of your passport or drivers license I have worked out the modalities for the persecution of this transaction which had meets all necessary requirements in our country and those of international arbitration. All i require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this business successful. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement which will protect you from any breach of the law. Mr. Brumley was a very good man and it is not wise for me to allow his hard earned wealth to get confiscated by the greedy directors of Eco Bank Plc. Further details await your response by email.
