Good day,
I am Mr. Phil Hodkinson, the Group Finance Director, Treasury & Insight HBOS United Kingdom.
During our Bank's New Year Account Auditing, I personally discovered a dormant account with a total sum of $75,000,000.00 [SEVENTY FIVE MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS]
The owner of this dormant account died on 4th Jan 2002. Since the death of the deceased, nobody has operated in this account till date. Moreover, this account has NO BENEFICIARY attached to it.
I observed that his fund will be confiscated by our BANKING CODE OF ETHICS if it remains dormant for a period of [6] years without any claims.
In this regard, I earnestly need your full cooperation in transferring this dormant fund out of our bank to avoid confiscating this fund. I will split the transfer into two 2 stages for easy and smooth transfer.
First, I will transfer $5,000,000.00 to any valid foreign account you will nominate, upon a successful transfer without any disappointment from your side; I will then fly to meet you in your home destination for proper sharing, thereafter we jointly transfer the remaining balance of $70,000,000.00 for great investments.
If you are willing to cooperate in this project, indicate your genuine interest for further details.
Call me now and Send Reply To:
Yours truly,
Phil Hodkinson
