Hello 419, My name is George Jones, I am a senior treasury officer in a Finance/Securities Firm in The Netherlands. I am contacting you for a business transfer of a huge sum of money from a deceased account. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that documents which will bring about the success of this transaction would be provided, and all will be well at the end of the day. I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction as explained below. The deceased person, Mr Neal Walker died in an air crash along with his wife on the 31st October 1999 in an Egyptian airline 990 with other passengers on board.You can confirm their death from the website below which was published by BBC WORLD NEWS. WEBSITE.http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/502503.stm Since his death, none of his next-of-kin are alive to make claims for this money as his next of kin, because they all died in the same accident. We cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our Company!s guidelines/policy. Upon this discovery,I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased as next of kin. All documents will be carefully processed to make you the beneficiary as next of kin to the funds US$8,500,000.00 (Eight million, five hundred thousand US.DOLLAR)which will be released in your favor as the next of kin. Because after seven years the money (US$8.5M)will be called back to the bank bond treasury as unclaimed bills and the money shared amongst the Directors of our Finance company. It may interest you to know that we have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased next of kin.so it is on this note, I decided to seek for whom I will use the name as the next of kin/beneficiary to these funds rather than allow our Directors to share the money amongst themselves at the end of the year. Please acknowledge receipt of this letter and indicate your acceptance and interest by furnishing me with the following information. 1. Full names and address, 2. Telephone and fax number For our personal contact and mutual trust in each other. I shall be compensating you with 35% of the above amount on final conclusion of this project for your assistance, the balance 65% shall be for me.
