FOR YOUR KIND ATTENTION:
I am the Regional/Portfolio manager of a financial and security firm in Holland. And I happen to have managed a particular account for a Resident Foreign client, here in the Netherlands, who died Intestate, leaving in our care a sizable amount of cash deposit in Dollars inside our vaults. For some reason my client does not have an easily identifiable Next of Kin, and I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients relatives; immediate and extended, this has proved unsuccessful. Hence, I am contacting you. I need your assistance in securing the Money left behind in our vaults before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by our Firm. Our firm has already issued a Government Mandatory formality notice to provide the Next of Kin or have the deposit confiscated and this should expire within a month.
Since I have not been successful in locating any of his relatives for over two years and convinced that no one is coming up and having satisfied the mandatory legal requirement of Next of Kin/Beneficiary notification, I now seek a Reliable and Trustworthy person, with your consent and perfect
understanding to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this deposit valued at Five million, two hundred thousand United States Dollars, This funds will be signed off you as the perceived next of kin legally and paid into an account to be provided by you (preferably outside the Netherlands Financial Institutions).
All I require is your honest cooperation and confidence in me; which I know would not come easy. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate background that will protect you from any breach of the Law. I would advise that you give this a positive consideration and get back to me soon. I'll be flexible and considerate in the percentage share that will be given to you for your assistance.
Upon receipt of your response which I await eagerly via this email address;
I will bring you into a clearer picture of this risk free transaction when I have heard back from you.
