Dear Friend,Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. KEN KUBE head of operations of the Rocha Saba Security Company here in Thailand. I have an obscured business suggestion for you.
Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Major Fadi Basem who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my company here in Thailand. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war early last year. Again after the
War another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that the Major and his family had been killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home.
After further investigation it was also discovered that Major Fade Basem did not declare any next of kin in his official papers. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my company. So, Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my company here without my company knowing about the information am giving you now and no one will ever come forward to claim it without me approving it.
What bothers me most is that according to the to the laws of company at the expiration 3 years the each consignment will revert to the ownership of the Thailand Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.
Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Major Fade Basem so that you will be able to receive the fund why I will give you backup and more in formations how the opera nation will take place
WHAT IS TO BE DONE?I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Major Fade Basem , all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also fill in form claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you.
There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.
Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 80% for me, 15%for you, while 5% will stands for any expense during the transfer of the fund. Should you be interested please send me your full names and current residential address and I will prefer you to reach me on the email address;email@example.com finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this operation.
