My dear good friend Without any doubt, I truly understand how surprise you will be to receive= this mail from me. Well, I got your information from The Netherlands Financial Gazette/Kamer Van Koophandel here in Den Haag, the Netherlands. I am Dr. Marcel Rijkman, of the Accounts Service Department of DELTA TRUS= T SECURITIES/FINANCE NV Den Haag, The Netherlands. Engineer Ted Miller is a Canadian oil consultant and contractor, who used= to work for Shell Royal Dutch Oil Developing Company in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and here in after referred to as our Customer. He was the leading consultant for Shell Royal Dutch Oil Company Middle Ea= st. Engineer Miller made a number of (fixed) deposits in our institution valu= ed at US$9.5million after the interests has been rolled over. Upon maturity, we= sent a routine notification but got NO respond from him. A few months later, we sent him a reminder but were informed by his emplo= yer that on the 21st of April 2003, returning from a family holidays in Luxem= bourg, he was involved in car accident along the A58/E312 Brussels/Netherlands expressway. He lost his life together with his wife and their only child. Since then we have made several inquiries with the CANADIAN EMBASSY here = in The Netherlands to locate any of his extended relatives/Next of Kin in regard= s to his deposit with us. The Canadian Embassy recently contacts me and inform= ed me that there investigation and inquiries back in Canada was that Engineer M= iller left NO relation. He left Canada a long time ago and has spent almost all= his life in Europe. After all 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 Mi= llion Dollars has mandated to confiscate the money if nobody shows-up as Next o= f Kin to lay claim of this deposit. 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 dece= ased so that the proceeds of this amount valued at $9.5 Million Dollars can be pa= id to you and we will share the money. You will take 30% for your assistance an= d 70% is for I and my co-partners. 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. We are going to employ the service of an attorney that will guar= antee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will prote= ct you from any breach of The Netherlands law. Please get in touch with me by my email if you are interested and also se= nd to me your private telephone number so that we could discuss further about t= his transaction.
