Accept My Greetings;
As I approach you most honorably today based on the confidentiality this request applies. Before I start, I must first apologize for this unsolicited mail to you. I am aware that this is certainly an unconventional approach to starting a relationship such as this.
I am JOHN HERBERT , a Banker with Ansbacher (BVI) Limited (British); I am contacting you based on the
confidentiality this transaction requires. I have an immediate Inheritance proposition for you which require confidentiality. I have a particular customer which I have carried around three banks that I have worked as a banker. He has always banked in any bank I worked based on the likeness he had for me. But on September 8, 2002, a British/Isle contractor with Addax Petroleum, Engr. Narin, a burn Kampuchea(Cambodge) but a citizen of United States.
Who recide at Poole Dorset, England, United Kingdom made a numbered time (fixed) deposits, valued at
US$19,850,000.00 (Nineteen Million Eight Hundred and fifty Thousand United States Dollars) in our bank.
Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.
After a month, I sent a reminder and finally discovered from someone who introduced him to me initially who said that Engr. Narin  died in a car accident on March 22nd, 2003, and On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL and an attempt to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I, therefore, made further investigations and discovered that Engr. Narin  did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official endorsement with us, including his banking references. This sum of US$19,850,000.00 is still in
Our bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. The point remains that NO one will ever come forward to claim its inheritance. And if nobody comes the money will revert to the bank suspense reserve account.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you to stand as the next of kin to Engr. Narin as you share the same last mae with him so that the fruit of this mans labour will not get wasted. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full name and address so that an Attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits which will put you in place as the next of kin to receive the inheritance payment.
We shall employ the service of two attorneys for the drafting and notarization of the WILL and obtain the
Necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favour for the transfer. Any bank account in any part of the world which you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this fund to you as the
Beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us to disburse; Note there is no risk at all, the documentations for this transaction will be provided by the attorney. If you are interested, please reply
Immediately via my private email, upon your response, I shall provide you with more details that will help
Us be in motion:
My private contacts details are:; Tel 0044-7045734090; Please observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this transaction will be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share as well.
Upon the receipt of this mail, send to me the following, to enable us start the process of the fund into your bank account:
1. Your full coordinate i.e., name and address. 2. The name of your bank where you want the fund to be
Transferred, Account Name and beneficiary 3. Your private Telephone and fax numbers
I look forward to hearing from you.
Best Regards,
