Greeting! How are you doing today? My name is Mr. Jerry Jones, I’m the Executive chief Financial officer, there is one of our customers who have made fixed deposit of sum of (USD6.2) million for 9 years ago and upon maturity; I sent the notification to his address, but no response. After few months, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his business partner that he died after a brief illness in his country home. We tried everything humanly possible to locate his relatives or family, but all efforts failed. The deposit is still intact with my bank and the interest is being paid into the principal sum at the end of each year. The bank agrees recently that if the fund remains in the account for more months, it will be confiscated and transferred into the Government treasury as unclaimed funds based on the law. Hence my contact you for join hands with honesty and truth to ensure that the fund is transferred into your bank account and a bank account in anywhere in the world can help the transfer. All that will be required of you is to contact my bank with the information I will send you as the next of kin or a business associate of the depositor and the fund will be paid into a bank account you will provide. To be honest with you, this is totally legal and 100% risk free. But the secret must remain between you and i, I have worked with this bank for many years and I know all their secrets and I have carefully mapped out my perfect strategies to handle this operation successfully. The depositor is my close friend before his death that is the main reason why I know much about the existence of this fund and the deposit. We will also use some part of the funds to help the orphanage and less privileged children in the world. If this proposal is acceptable to you and you are ready to champion it with me in good faith, kindly get back to me immediately you receive and read it. I wait for your urgent response. Yours Sincerely, Mr. Jerry Jones.
