FROM DESK OF:Scott Boniferro (General Manager,PRUDENTIAL INSURANCE COMPANY).
My Dear Friend,
I feel quite safe and satisfy dealing with you in this mutual beneficial transaction.
Though, this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, I choose to reach you through
it because it still remains the fastest, surest and most secured medium of communication.
However, this correspondence is purely private, and it should be treated as such.
I guarantee you that this deal is hitch free from all what you may think of and I
encourage you to read it to the end so that you can understand it very well for the
benefits of both of us.I am Scott Boniferro (General Manager,PRUDENTIAL INSURANCE COMPANY.
COMPANY),in charge of Claims and Indemnity of PRUDENTIAL INSURANCE COMPANY.
I am contacting you based on Trust and confidentiality that will be attached
to this deal for the benefit of both of us.The Management and the Legal / Treasury
Department of this PRUDENTIAL INSURANCE COMPANY in a recent meeting, recommended
that the account of MR.ROGER JACK ,who maintained a Life Assurance Policy,should be
declared Dormant and confisticated hence moving his unclaimed benefits funds to the
Treasury according to our Banking and Financial law.Recently, I came across a huge sum
of money belonging to a deceased person (MR.ROGER JACK).He is a foreigner"a German National
"and unfortunately He was among 109 people on board and five who died on the ground when the
plane crashed into the Hotelissimo. when they were flying from western German city of Moenchengladbach to
New York to join a Caribbean cruise for a "vacation of a lifetime". All occupants of the Aeroplane
unfortunately lost their lives.
You can confirm through this website below:
This man was our client and has a Life Assurance Policy WORTH the sum of Five Million
United States Dollars (US$5,000,000.00). Right now, the fund is lying unclaimed in our custody
and there is NO next of kin mentioned in his file and there is NO HOW we can reach any of his
other relatives. All efforts made to establish contacts with any member of his relation has
proved abortive and unsuccessful. His Life Assurance Policy will expire in the next few months
from the date of this letter.Just last week we received an instruction from Ministry of Social
Welfare to forward particulars of all unclaimed benefits that will expire in the next few months.
Upon my personal finding on this matter, I kept this information secret to myself until now that
I am contacting you. In view of the fact that the deceased customer is a foreigner
(from a different country), it is officially important for the involvement of a foreigner who
will pose as a next-of-kin. I will use my exalted position in this Insurance Company to present
you as his Next of Kin as you can be his relative, friend or Cousin and the Money (US$5M)
will be safely transferred into your own bank account in your country.
Please include your Telephone/Fax number/ Home Address when replying this mail and I will give
you more information as soon as you indicate your willingness to assist in this valuable transaction.
I will use my exalted position here to get all internal documentations to back up the claims.
The whole Procedures will last only 7 working days to get the fund retrieved successfully without
trace even in future. Please I need the following:
1. YOUR FULL NAME
2. PHONE AND FAX NUMBER
3. HOME ADDRESS/COMPANY'S NAME AND ADDRESS.
4. YOUR AGE AND OCCUPATION
The transaction will be done successfully and smoothly completed via email and phone.
I Might call you for discussions. I PROMISE that you must be happy and shall rejoice
greatly soonest for cooperation with me in this transaction. After successful conclusion
of this transaction, we shall share the money in this ratio:
1.) 55% for Me
2.) 40% for you,
while the remaining 5% should be use to pay any expenses or tax at the end of the transaction
as your Government may require.
I await your good response today.
Thanks and remain bless. I require you to maintain the confidentiality of this transaction
because it is important due to the fact that I am still in active services to the Company.
Your earliest and urgent response to this matter is very important.
I AM WAITING FOR YOUR REPLY TODAY.
