Consider this OFFER/PROPOSAL to be Next of Kin to our late customer From: Evan de Jong My dear friend, Without any doubt, I could understand that you will receive this mail with great surprise. Well, I got your information from The Netherlands Financial Gazette/Kamer Van Koophandel. I am Mr. Evan de Jong, from Accounts Service Department of DELTA TRUST SECURITIES/FINANCE NV, in Den Haag, The Netherlands. Engineer Ted Miller is a foreigner, who used to work with Shell Royal Dutch Oil Developing Company in Den Haag, The Netherlands, and here in after referred to as our Customer. On the 21st of April 2003, returning from a family holidays in Luxembourg, he was involved in car accident along the A58/E312 Brussels/Netherlands expressway. He lost his life together with his wife and two kids. Since then we have made several inquiries with the AMERICA EMBASSY to locate any of his extended relatives in regards of his deposit with us. After these several unsuccessful attempts, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money /deposit he left behind before they got confiscated or declared unserviceable by our Company where these huge deposits are lodged. Particularly, Our Company where the deceased had an amount valued $9.5 Million Dollars has mandated to confiscate the money within the next Ninety (90) days if nobody shows-up as Next of Kin. Since we have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3years now, I seek your consent PRIVATELY to present you as the Next of Kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this amount valued at $9.5 Million Dollars can be paid to you and we will share the money. You will take 30% for your assistance and 70% is for us here. We have all the legal documents that can be used to back up any claim you shall make. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of The Netherlands law. Please get in touch with me by my email and send to me your telephone and fax numbers so that both of us can discuss further about this transaction. NB: FOR SECURITY REASONS, I WOULD LIKE YOU TO REPLY TO MY ALTERNATIVE/PERSONAL EMAIL ADDRESS: (firstname.lastname@example.org) Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
