Dear Friend,
Permit me to introduce myself, my name is Mr. Van Zeffree. I work with Development and Investment Bank (SNS BANK) here in the Netherlands as (Assistant Auditor). In the discharge of my duties, I stumbled on this domiciliary account that has remained dormant for three years now with Five million Five hundred Thousand US dollars (US$5.5m).
I contacted my Director and we sent out staff for enquiries and discovered that the account holder died in an accident with his wife and his two kids. I am writing you so that we can work together to remit the money to you as the next of kin because this money belongs to a foreigner and has to be claimed by a foreigner.
I guarantee this transaction under legitimate arrangements that will not breach the law by both parties. It is a simple process which will take a short while to conclude. Finally 30% of the fund for your corporation and efforts.
Please Contact me on my private email address with your Telephone and fax number:
with regards,
Mr. Van Zeffree.
(Assistant Auditor).
