Dear Sir/Madam I have beign trying to reach you for a while now without success,Did you receive the previous emails i sent you.? If not,please refer to the attached letter below.I look forward to your swift response. Mr.William Phillips
Good Morning I wrote you several emails in the past few months without receiving a reply from you, I do not know if you received all the emails I sent you? I am an American and currently, I am based in Europe, I work with a financial institution in Europe. I have the opportunity of transferring a substantial amount of money to you from the bank I work with. The money was deposited in our bank a few years back by a wealthy contractor who is now deceased and fortunately you have the same SURNAME with the depositor. Considering the fact that the depositor has no traceable relative who will eventually apply for the claim, I decided to contact you so that you can apply for claim "WITH MY ASSISTANCE" and take custody of the deposit for our mutual benefit. I will not mention the amount of money which runs into millions of US Dollars presently neither will I mention the name of the bank I work with in Europe until I am sure you have agreed to deal. I trust you will understand the need for such precautions. Please note; in 2001, I succeeded in claiming $32million from the same bank with the help of an American like me, but by the time I went to receive my share of the money from her 2 days after the money was released into her account, she had changed her home address and moved out of CALIFORNIA to another state. Till date, I am still searching for her. But because it was a deal and confidential matter, I can’t seek legal action against her or even inform the authorities. So to ensure that I do not make the same MISTAKE I made in 2001, I will have to meet with you physically for discussion before we can proceed with the deal. I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT MY PROPOSAL IS NOT A HOAX, AS I AM READY TO PROVE MY IDENTITY TO YOU AND THE REALITY OF THE DEAL WITH VERIFIABLE DOCUMENTS.I AM SURE OF SUCCESS IN THIS DEAL BECAUSE I HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE. For more details, here is my direct contact email ID : email@example.com . You can also call me on my Direct mobile phone : +44 704 5777 868.I can be reached on this number any time of the day 24/7 regardless of the day or time you wish to call.
