Bermuda Commercial Bank Ltd Mr. Khan Farzan 43 Victoria Street, Hamilton HM 12 London United Kingdom. Dear Sir, I have an urgent and very profitable business Proposition for you that should be handled with Extreme confidentiality. On December 31st, 2000 a Foreign Consultant and contractor With the United Kingdom Railway Corporation Mr. Water Brown by name made a numbered time Fixed Deposit for twelve calendar months valued at (forty Eight Million, Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in my branch here. Upon maturity I sent a routine notification in Accordance with the Bank policy to his forwarding Address but got no reply. After a month we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers United Kingdom Railway Corporation that Mr. Water Brown died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, we found out that he died without making a Will and all attempts to trace his Next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further Investigations and discovered that Mr. Water Brown Did not declare any next of kin or relations in all His official documents including his Bank Deposit Paper work in my Bank. This sum of (forty Eight Million, Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) has been carefully moved out of my bank to a Financial and Security Company in Europe for safekeeping. No one will ever come forward to claim it and According to the Law of my country, at the expiration of 5 years the money will revert to the ownership of the State (Government) if nobody applies to claim the fund. This prompted us to contact you. We want to front you as the next of kin of our late client thereby making you the legal beneficiary of the sum of (forty Eight Million, Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) that is presently in a Financial and Security Company in Europe here. I contacted you because it is against our code of ethics to own and operate foreign accounts and your assistance would be needed to claim the money in the Financial and Security Company in Europe. We have unanimously agreed that 25% of the entire sum would be for you if you agree to take part in this profitable transaction, 70% for me while the remaining 5% would be used to pay back the expenses that may be incurred during the course of the transaction by both parties after the fund has been claimed and lodged in your account. In the event that you are genuinely interested in the transaction, the following information would be needed from you to expedite action. 1) Your Full Name. 2) Your Residential or Company Address. 3) Your Private Mobile, Telephone and Fax numbers where you can be reached at all time because this transaction entails constant communication. The transaction is 100% legal and totally free of risks as all modalities has been perfected to ensure the hitch free success of the transaction. If you are interested, send the requested information via email as soon as possible so that we can proceed immediately. I await your response urgently.
