Tel/Fax: +44 845-280-0544 Dear Friend, I am Mr. Michael Cole, the Auditor General, Imperial Finance House Limited, London United-Kingdom . In the course of my auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account, which was opened in 1990 belonging to a dead foreigner who died in 1999. Every effort made to track any member of his family or next of kin has since failed; hence I got in contact with you to stand as his next of kin since you bear the same last name with him. He died leaving no heir or a will. My intention is to transfer this sum of US$15.5Million Dollars in the aforementioned account to a safe account overseas. I am therefore proposing that you quietly partner with me and provide an account or set up a new one that will serve the purpose of receiving this fund. For your assistance in this venture, I am ready to part with a good percentage of the entire funds. After going through the deceased person's records and files, I discovered that:
(1) No one has operated this account since 1999
(2) He died without an heir or WILL; hence the money has been floating.
(3) No other person knows about this account and there was no known beneficiary. If I do not remit this money urgently, it would be forfeited and subsequently converted to company's funds, which will benefit only the directors of my firm. This money can be approved to you legally as with all the necessary; documentary approvals in your name. However, you would be required to show some proof of claim, which I will provide you with and also guide you on how to make your applications. Please reply so that I can send you detailed information on the modalities of my proposition. I completely trust you to keep this proposition absolutely confidential, if you are interested to work with me kindly forward below information:
Your First and Last Names:
Telephone and fax numbers
Your Age:
Your Nationality: Please send the above information so I can reach you easily. I look forward to your prompt response.
Best Regards,
Mr. Michael Cole
