WOODLAND FINANCE AND TRUST COMPANY LTD.LONDON-U.K I am Mr Richard Martins, the Auditor General, woodland Finance and trust Limited UK. In the course of my auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account which was opened in 1990 belonging to a dead foreigner Late Mr. K. P. Ong who died in 1999. Every effort made to track any member of his family or next of kin has since failed; hence I got in contact with you to stand as his next of kin. He died leaving no heir or a will.My intention is to transfer this sum of $15.5M in the aforementioned account to a safe account overseas. I am therefore proposing that you quietly partner with me and provide an account or set up a new one that will serve the purpose of receiving this fund. For your assistance in this venture, I am ready to part with a good percentage of the entire funds. After going through the deceased person's records and files, I discovered that: (1) No one has operated this account since 1999 (2) He died without an heir; hence the money has been floating. (3) No other person knows about this account and there was no known beneficiary. If I do not remit this money urgently, it would be forfeited and subsequently converted to company's funds which will benefit only the directors of my firm. This money can be approved to you legally as with all the necessary documentary approvals in your name. However, you would be required to show some proof of claim which I will provide you with and also guide you on how to make your applications. Do give me a reply so that I can send you detailed information on the modalities of my proposition. I completely trust you to keep this proposition absolutely confidential. Please forward to me on acceptance of this proposal,your private telephone and fax number including the country code and area codes, your complete names,and private email address for effective communication. I can be reached through my personal email address below: email@example.com Best Regards, Richard Martins
