Dear Friend, I am Mr. Pavel Feifer; I am the account officer to Late Mark Madoff who committed suicide on the 12th December 2010. He had called me before then instructing me to move his fixed deposit funds to a private online numbered account avoiding anyone tracing the funds to our bank and also avoiding our bank authorities from knowing that the funds belongs to him . I have moved this fund to a private numbered online account in my bank without stating a next of kin to the funds. The funds are 32Million Pounds and this is presently in my bank now without any next of kin to make claims to the said funds. Since am the account officer, I have the fully documents and access to have your name stated as the next of kin enabling us have this funds transferred to your account in your country. I am asking for your assistance because I can’t have this done by myself as I work in the bank and it will be very suspicious for me to be the next of kin to my customer’s funds. If you agree to have this done with me, you will be compensated with 50% of the money and I will have 50% too. Please send me an email with your full name, address and telephone numbers, enabling me call you for further clarifications and proceed on slotting in your name as the beneficiary to the funds. I expect to hear from you soon. Please find attached a copy of my passport for you to know that am for real and my phone number enabling you call me as soon as possible +44 795 529 4300 Mr. Pavel Feifer
