Dear Friend, Best Compliments of the season to you! You are reading from Dylan Briggs. I work in the account management section in charge of credit and foreign bills of one of prime banks here In Brussels, Belgium. I was privileged to find your contact through the International trade of commerce. I have made several attempts through your embassy to locate any surviving relative of my late client as to reconcile his estate. Recently, I came across your name to utmost amazement I discovered that you both bear the same surname and from the same country. Until his death he was the Manager of DIAMOND DAGMAN [PTY] in Antwerp Belgium and I was his personal account officer before his untimely death with all the members of his family in a car accident in London. He left behind a dormant domiciliary account with a Balance of $13,300,000.00 (THIRTEEN MILLION THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATE DOLLARS) with my bank. This account has been dormant since his death and my bank is willing to make payment to anybody who might come forward as the next of kin/beneficiary. However, Nobody has ever come forward to make claim. I solicit your assistance to enable us transfer the said amount into your safe account for onward investment, since you are of advantage and God has made it that you bear the same surname with the late Customer. However my proposal is that you stand as a next of kin /foreigner, and make claim as the next of kin to the late Industrialist and his closing balance will be paid in your favor and we will used it for investment and 10% of the remaining balance to setup a charity organization for the less privileged, orphanage and widows. If you are interested in doing business with me please do not fail to contact me back as soon as you get this email. I assure you that this transaction is 100% risk and trouble free to both parties, as we will have to do everything, legally and legitimately. As an insider in the bank, I assure you all things will work out I have access to most of what it will take to transfer the money. Well, if you receive this email, there are more details to discuss. I will Give you the correct information to this account immediately, PLEASE SEND THE BELOW INFOMATIONS TO ME TO ENEBLE US PROCEED WITH THE BUSINESS ----- Full Name: -----Email: ----Your confidential telephone/fax number for easy communication, -----Your contact address: -----Your occupation: However, your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution, I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me, With best regards, DYLAN BRIGGS Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Tell: 0032-484262330
