Attn: PRIVATE AND URGENT,
I am contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a huge sum of
money from a deceased account. Though I know a transaction of this
magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring
you that all will be well at the end of the day. We decided to contact
you due to the urgency of this transaction. PROPOSITION; We discovered
an abandoned sum of US$12,500,000.00 (Twelve Million, Five Hundred
Thousand United States Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of
our foreign customers who died along with his entire family. Since his
death, none of his next-of-kin/ relations has come forward to claim
this money as the heir. We cannot release the fund from his account
unless someone applies for claims as the next-of-kin to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidelines. Upon this discovery, we now seek
your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased as
all documentations will be carefully worked out by us for the funds to
be released in your favour as the beneficiary's next of kin. It may
interest you to note that we have secured from the probate an order of
mandamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries. Please
acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual
business endeavour by furnishing me with the following:
1. Beneficiary name and address.
2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers.
These requirements will enable us file a letter of claim to the
appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favour before
the transfer can be made. We shall be compensating you with
US$4,000,000.00 (Four Million United States Dollars) on final
conclusion of this project, while the rest shall be for us. Your share
stays with you while the rest shall be for us for investment purposes.
If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me only through my
confidential email address:firstname.lastname@example.org
and the private phone number and bank name i shall provide in recipient
of your response to my proposal. This is because my official lines are
not totally secure as they are periodically monitored to assess our
level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management
Please observe this instruction religiously. I send you this mail not
without a measure of fear as to what the consequences may be, but I
know within me that ‘nothing ventured is nothing gained’ and that
‘success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold’. If this
proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust
we have bestowed in you,
I await your urgent mail.
