Good day, I got your contact on my private search for a reliable and trusted person to handle a transaction of mutual benefit. An investor (name with-held) died without leaving a next of kin to the funds he has in a finance institution that I oversee. I am seeking your permission to present you as the next of kin and have the funds released to you as his benefactor. The total amount in question is Sixteen Million, Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand Euros (€16,450.000.00) only. 25% of this sum will be your compensation on final conclusion of this project. I have all relevant records of my client’s deposit to facilitate our claim. Further details will be given upon receipt and affirmation of your desire to participate. Please only contact me if you are serious and capable of executing a project of this magnitude. Thank you. Please send your reply to: email@example.com
