Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Mr. Robert Schock, I work with the Chartered National Bank as an account officer in the 
Treasury/Credit Control Unit. I was the accounting officer of a national of your country, who died 
with his wife and their only son, after they were involved in car accident.

After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to 
locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in 
repatriating the assets and Capital valued at 25,540,000.00 Million Pounds left behind by my 
client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the share holders of this Bank, so 
that they can share his funds as dividends amongst themselves.

The Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within 
the next fourteen official working days. Because as at the time of his demise I was his accounting 
officer, but have since been promoted to the position of Treasury/Credit Control Unit, ever since I 
have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for sometime now, I seek your consent to present 
you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of 
this account can be paid to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then 
discuss modalities for transfer. 

As soon as I recieve an acknowledgement of your acceptance, I will furnish you with the necessary 
modalities of the transaction. I assure you that this transcaction is 100% risk free, and as soon 
as we succeed in getting this funds to your account, The money will be shared on a 50, 50 
basis............... I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that 
will protect you from any breach of the law. 

I am waiting to hear from you soon. 

Best regards, 

Robert Schock
