FROM:MR STEVE BORIS ADDRESS: CALLE 69 MARINO 29004 MADRID -SPAIN TELL+34-679-140-002 PRIVATE EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org Compliment of the season, I am Mr Steve Boris credit officer of a reputable bank in Spain.Before the Tsunami crisis one of our very good customer Mr. Gordon West who was a business man made a number of fixed deposit for 14 calendar months, with a value of Six million Seven Hundred Thousand United State Dollars($6.7 million USD) in my branch. Upon maturity there was an arrangement made already to send the money to United States because of the oncoming policy. Only to find out that Mr Gordon West and his wife died in khao lak beach during the Tsunami in Thailand in 2004. After further investigation it was also discovered that Mr. Gordon West did not declare next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. He confided in me as his account manager that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. Now, Six million Seven Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 3 years the funds will revert to the ownership to the Spanish Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. My suggestion to you is that I will like you to stand as the next of kin to Mr.Gordon West so that you will be able to receive his funds. I want you to know that every arrangement have been perfected to ensure a successful transaction. I will also let you know that all the necessary document will be prepared by me,that will make you the legal next of kin to Mr. Gordon West , All that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with the below informations - FULL NAMES: ADDRESS: PHONE NUMBER: FAX NUMBER: NATIONALITY: AGE: OCCUPATION: These requirements will enable me file letter of claim to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favour before i could proceed on the transfer of the funds to the designated account of your choice. I shall be compensating you with 35% of the total funds while 65% will be mine on final conclusion of this project If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you, I await your urgent reply. Kind Regards Mr Steve Boris.
