Attention I am contacting you to solicit your participation in a business involving a huge sum of money which was deposited in Finance company where I work here in The Netherlands. I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but be rest assured that everything has been arranged to avoid any risk on your part. The urgency of this transaction demands that we act very fast. PROPOSITION; The sum which totaled US$26,000.000.00 was deposited in my company by a foreign customer who eventually died in an accident. However, since his death no one has laid claims to these funds as his heir or next of kin, this is the major reason why I am contacting you. As a rule, my company will not release the funds unless someone applies for claim as the next of kin to the deceased as indicated in our operating guidelines. It is my firm believe based on the companyís practice that if someone shows up with required documentations as the deceasedís next-of-kin -the funds shall be released to him. This is where you come in. With my position in the company, I have perfected plans on how the necessary documentations shall be prepared in your favor as the beneficiary to claim these funds absolutely risk free. It may interest you to know that I have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceasedís beneficiaries. Please acknowledge receipt of this letter by furnishing me with the following: 1. Beneficiary full name and Contact Address 2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers 3. Nationality 4. Direct email address. These requirements will enable me file letter of claim to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favor before being authorized to claim the funds. I shall be compensating you with 20.5% of the total money, 5% will be for any incidental expenses incurred while the balance shall be invested in any viable business you will recommend to me. If you are keen to participate in this project please get back to me top urgently as time is of the essence, if however you are not , I urge you not to disclose it to any one else. Best Regards Wilson Peters
