Kindest Attention, I am Dr. Andrew Formica, the Chief Auditor of CM Financial Management Limited, United Kingdom. My office audits and controls the affairs of all customer accounts (especially for foreigner) concerned with foreign claim payments in my company (CM Financial Management Limited). I urge you to treat this with all seriousness and urgency it deserves. I also guarantee you that this deal is risk free and legitimate from all what you may think of. I have before me list of funds, which could not be transferred to some nominated accounts as these accounts have been identified either as ghost accounts, Unclaimed Deposits and Over-invoiced Sum etc. In the course of my job, I discovered a floating fund in an account which was opened in 1999 belonging to a foreigner (Romanian) who died in 2002. All effort made to track any member of her family or next of kin has since failed, hence I got in contact with you to stand as her next of kin. She died leaving no heir or a will. On this note, I wish to have a deal with you as regards to the unpaid funds and as it is my duty to recommend the transfer of these funds to the British Government Treasury Department and Reserve Accounts as unclaimed deposits. I have the opportunity to write you based on the instructions received two days ago from the Foreign Debts Reconciliation Department to submit the List of payment reports/expenditures and audited Revenue Reports for the year 2010, among several other reasons. I have decided to present you as the NEXT OF KIN/WILL BENEFICIARY to an overdue inheritance sum of Fifty Million Great British Pounds Sterling (50,000,000.00GBP) belonging to our Late customer Mrs. Kenny Pietro Nasa of Bucharest, Romania. I have went through the deceased records, files and I discovered the following; (1) No one has operated this account since 2002 till date (2) She died without an heir or an inheritance or next of kin to her funds, hence the money has been floating in the account which became dormant. Following my idea that we can have a Deal/Agreement and I am going to do this legally with your name as the bonafide beneficiary of the amount in question by employing the service of a UK accredited attorney, who will handle all the legal documentations and lay claims through his legal authority on your behalf. I have decided to give to you 20% of the funds in respect to the provision of a foreign account which will be provided by you to receive the funds in question, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 70% would be for me as I have planned to come to your Country as soon as the transfer is completed for my own share. I hope I will not be betrayed by you after receiving the funds into your account? My Conditions: 1) The sum of Fifty Million Great British Pounds Sterling only (50,000,000.00GBP) only will be transfer into your account after the processing of all relevant legal documents in your name as the bonafide beneficiary, the transfer will be made by Telegraphic Transfer(T/T) or delivered to you via the company's Private Diplomatic Delivery System confirmable in 5-7 working days. 2) This deal must be kept secret forever, during and after the execusion of it and all correspondence will be strictly by email/telephone, for security purposes. 3) That there will not be any third party as most problems associated with transfers of fund release are caused by beneficiary's agents or representative. If you AGREE with my Conditions, I will forward to you a drafted Application Letter which you will fill and forward to the Head of International Funds Remittance Department of my company and I will also advise you on what to do immediately so that the transfer will commence immediately without delay as I will proceed to audit your name on the Payment Schedule instantly to meet the 5-7 working days mandate of the company. If you are interested contact me with the below informations. (1) Your Full name. (2) Tel Phone, Fax and Mobile #. (3) Company name, Position and Contact Address. (4) Profession, Age and Marital Status (5) Country of Residence and Origin If you think you are capable and will be committed to making this deal a success,give me a call or send me an email as soon as possible to confirm your interest.
