Dear friend, I am Mr Alfred Elie. a banker, I am contacting you on a matter of 7.5 million euros deposited in our bank, ready to be transferred to your account. The depositor of the said fund died with his entire family during the civil war in my country in 2010/2011, unfortunately leaving no one to claim it. I want you to stand as the next of kin to claim the said funds. If you are interested kindly contact me so we can proceed. Sincerely, Mr Alfred Elie.
