with due respect and regards, I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction, During our investigation and auditing in the bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person, a foriegner who died in a plane crash with his entire family and the fund has been dormant in his account with the bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this development. Although personally, I kept this information secret within myself and partners to enable the whole plans and idea be profitable and successful during the time of execution.
Please visit the below website for more information about the deceased and his family;
www.wral.com/news/2345844/detail.html www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/07/20/kenya.crash/index.htmlThe amount involved is (USD$10.5M TEN MILLION AND FIVE HUNDRED UNTED STATE DOLLARS). Meanwhile all the whole arrangement and directives needed to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, will be forward to you upon your acceptance. information will be reaching you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity.
In fact, I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant,we are not allowed to operate a foriegn account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because I work in this bank,This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin with affidavit of trust of Oath to the bank and also present a foriegn account where you will need the said money (USD$10. 5 Million) to be transfered into, after due verification and clarification
to designated bank account.I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free, On smoth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of the total sum as ratification, while 10% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer such as telephone
bills,internet bills etc, while 60% will be for me and my partners.Please you are advised to keep top secret as we are still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal with you. You should not let anybody hear of this transaction until you confirm the fund in your account. I will be monitoring the whole situation here in the bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask us to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment,either in your country or any other country you may advice us to invest in. All other necessary information will be sent to you when I hear from you.I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible, stating
your wish in this deal. Yours Brother, phillip mikeNB: YOUR URGENT RESPONSE IS NEEDED SO THAT I WILL SEND TO YOU THE APPLICATION FORM TO APPLY TO THE BANK AND MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE DECEASED CUSTOMER)
