From Mrs Kate I . Zain.
Tele-fax: +34 616 630 411.
I am Mrs. Kate I . Zain from Spain married to Mr. Andrew Ken Zain from south Africa for seven years now we have two kids, I am the manager bills and exchange at the foreign remittance department of L.C. bank here in Spain. I have a business proposal which I believe that will be a very Good opportunity for both of us so I decided to contact you on this business opportunity in our bank, the business is this I discovered an
abandoned sum of 77.7m US dollars (seventy seven million seven hundred thousand united states dollars) in our safety deposit vault that belongs to one of our foreign
Who died along with his entire family on 12th December 2002 in a ghastly motor accident along Barcelona express way. since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because the management can not release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately I learnt that all his family died alongside with him at the motor accident leaving nobody behind for the claim. Since you have the same surname with this deceased customer you can easily make this deal with me, I have all the secret information?s of this deposit which will help you to claim this money as the next of kin. it is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin to the deceased since nobody is coming for it and I don?t want this money to go into the banks treasury as unclaimed funds or declared to the government of Spain, once this is done the government of Spain will confiscate the funds, which is not good for both of us instead its better for us to do the deal and map out something for charity from the money and share the rest . I agreed that 40 % of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to your acceptance to do this business with me, while 60 % would be for me and my family. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to your account as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as the next of kin of the deceased indicating your interest of claim of your inherited funds, upon receipt of your reply through my above e-mail or fax number, I will send to you by fax the text of the application which you will send to the bank. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is a hitch free that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made perfectly. At this moment you should feel free to contact me through telephone or e-mail as soon as you receive this letter. You should understand that this should be kept very confidential, let it be between you, me and my husband only. This is the only way we can achieve success. I will level the whole arrangement here in the bank for the transfer to be approved immediately. Please take note my Husband is the only one that I have discussed this business with and we both agreed to do this business with you, he answers my phone anytime I am at work or not around my phone, for the security of this business please feel free to call my husband on his number+34 616 630 411,because of my position in the bank my phone might be monitored so I think that its better to be discussing with my husband on the phone while I should be arranging everything in the bank for smooth transaction. Please send to me via my above e-mail, your telephone numbers, your cell phone number, your house telephone number, your private fax number, for easy communication.
