I honestly apologize and hope I do not cause you much embarrassment by contacting you through this means for a transaction of this magnitude, but this is due to confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium, sorry my English is not very good as I am a Dutch citizen. Furthermore, due to this issue on my hands now, it became necessary for me to seek your assistance, and it is imperative for me to know your opinion. On August 9,2005, an American Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese Petroleum and Chemical Corporation Mr. Richard Nault made a numbered time(Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$28,000,000.00(Twenty-eight Million Dollars only) in a Private Finance Security Company in the Netherlands, Which also is subsidiary bank Of the ING OIL INTERNATIONAL BV NETHERLANDS., This funds was specifically deposited to the bank for delivery of petroleum products from our company. Upon maturity and time to supply this products, I as the product and delivery Manager sent a routine notification to his forwarding address, to notify him that we were ready to effect supplies but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Chinese Petroleum and Chemical Corporation that Mr. Richard Nault died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Richard Nault did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents,including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my company. This sum of US$28,000,000.00 is still in the vault of our cooperate Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each Month. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of The Netherlands, at the expiration of 2(Three) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Netherlands Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to Stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Richard Nault so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/ administration in your favor for the transfer. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 75% for me and 20% for you and 5% for Expenses Incurred in the course of the transaction. There is no risk at all as three top Managers at the Finance Security Company and the ING OIL including our attorney will do all the paperwork for This transaction and with my position and that of the credit officer guarantees the successful execution of this transaction is 100% Guaranteed. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.
