Dear submissions,

I hope this letter finds you well.
 While this email will definitely be coming to you as a surprise, please take a moment of your time 
to read 
this. It is very important. I am Mr.Freddy Jones a treasury officer working in a Financial 
Securities Firm in 
The Netherlands. However I got your address through the International web directory online. During 
recent reconciliation and auditing of our clients/customers account, my department discovered an 
dormant account with a huge amount of money valued at US $8,500,000.00 (Eight million, five hundred 
thousand United State dollars Only) that belongs to one of our late customers; Mr. Williams, from 
He passed away (dead /deceased)leaving no next of kin as beneficiary to his money in our firm.All 
past years the money have been dormant in his account  without any claim or activity on it for 
quite some 
 Due to our company!s regulations,It is only a nominated next of kin that can stand and receive the 
money from our firm because already our firm is waiting for someone who will come for the claims.
Infact I have laid down plan to introduce a trusted person who will stand to claim and receive the 
as the next of kin to late Mr Jerry Williams.Based on this,that is why I decided to contact you to 
collaborate and work along withn me for us to present you as the next of kin.
On behalf of  my colleagues and I we now seek your permission to have you stand in as next of kin 
to our late customer so that the funds will be released and paid into your account.You would become 
beneficiary's next of kin to receive the US$8.5 Million into your Bank account.
We are not allowed to operate a foreign account and that would eventual raise an eyebrow during the 
time of transfer. I still work in this firm,this is the actual reason why I required a second  
party or company 
who will work with  me forward claims as the next of kin (you) and also provide a bank account or 
to set 
up a new bank account immediately to receive the which formerly belong to late Mr Jerry Williams
UPon conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of the total fund, while 5% will 
be set 
aside to take care of expenses on both sides that may arise during the time of transfer and also for
telephone bills, and the remaining 65% will be for me and my colleague.
What I want from you is for you to act as the deceased next of kin. I have in my possession, all the
necessary Documents to successfully accomplish the operation. Further information will be given to 
as soon as I receive your positive response.
I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating your wish to work along with us in this 
busines transaction. We don't have alot of time to correct this unfortunate situation and I am 
afraid that 
without your help it will all be lost forever. For confidentiality please contact me on my personal 
address( with the following your data: Full names, Address, Telephone number and 
Fax number.
I look forward to hearing from you.
 Best Regards,
 Mr.Freddy Jones
