Gooday, My name is Donald Van.I work in the audit dept where I serve as a senior account officer to numerous customers. One of the customers whom I worked as his personal account officer lost his family in an automobile accident. He was lucky to survive, and came to this country with his wealth intact. Unfortunately he died in 2003. Because this man was good to me when he was alive, I took it upon myself to his country last month while i was on my Annual Leave, to see if I could locate any of his close relations . On reaching there I discovered that his only surviving Uncle died a few months back from the september 11 terrorist attack, at the world trade center that kill many people. Now there are two things I could do with regards to the dead mans money. First,as his accounts officer, I could formally notify the bank authorities that the man is dead and has no next of kin. In this case the money would be forfeited to the government after some time. Another thing I can do is to arrange for someone else, a foreigner, to act as the next of kin to the late man so that he will claim the money. I want you to be my partner. All you would have to do is act as the next of kin of the dead man and the whole money in the account will be transferred to your account. As the accounts officer to the late man, I have all the necessary documents that you will require to claim the money in the account. It is true that the actual amount involved is 26M USD but all I want to do first is to move out about 11M USD from the principal into a safe foreigners account abroad, After the first transaction is successfully done, and I am sure you kept the money safely without cheating me out of it all, we shall apply for the rest of the funds. Reach me immediately by mail so that I can give you further etails.Also provide me with your direct tel/fax to reach you. Your share will be 30%, My own share will be 69%, We shall keep 1% for the expenses. Yours truly Dr_donald van
