Asunto: TRANSACTION BREAKDOWN
Thank you very much for your quick response to my proposal.I will like to inform you that in issues of inheritance the beneficiary can be anybody,it is not mandatory for the beneficiary to be related to the deceased, it does not even matter of you are from different countries, the most important thing is that there must be documents to show for it,which would stipulate your status as the sole beneficiary to the funds deposited at my bank.
You should not have anything to worry about, I will do everything legally required to ensure that the project goes smoothly,it shall pass through all Laws of International Banking, you have my word.The attorney will prepare the necessary Affidavits which shall put you in place as next of kin, he will obtain the necessary clearances from the UK authorities which will cover all the aspects involved in this transaction.
This attorney shall be handling all matters of
probate on your behalf,he will have all the documents perfected, and with these documents he shall come foward to my bank to apply for the immediate release and transfer of the funds to the account you shall open.I have been a banker for many years and I know perfectly how the system works.
I can assure you that you will not in any way regret your involvement with me. We can do this if we join our hands together and work in good faith.Firstly I want to assure you that this transaction is 100% risk and hitch free and also you will need to assure me that I will have unlimited access to my 50% of the funds(US$25M) once the funds has been transferred into your account because the funds is going to be transfered into your account and not mine so you are the one to assure me that you will give my own part to me.
In light of the above, I will need you to provide me with the following details:
Your name and
address in full;
Your home telephone and office telephone numbers
Your fax numbers
A detailed profile of yourself and company if any.
A valid identification.
As soon as I get the information I will have my lawyer go ahead to procure the relevant documents which will confer you with the rights of the next of kin to deceased and as such I requested your information above as this documents will be documented at the probate office here in London so as to give this venture legal backing and authenticity.
Upon receipt of this information the lawyer would go ahead and procure this documents and as soon as we have secured the documents,I will help you make official application to my bank on the strength of the documents that the funds should be released to you as the bona-fide next of kin to the deceased
Immediately the document is ready and approved by my bank, it will be forwarded to the bank that is
presently with the funds to release the funds to you as the bonafide next of kin, You need not to worry as I would use my position to facilitate the approval and the subsequent release of the funds to you.
Furthermore, you have to bear in mind that this venture requires mutual trust and as such you have to assure me of your honesty and integrity before we commence this transaction. The procurement of this documents will cost me quite an amount of money but I am unperturbed because we stand to gain a lot more once we conclude this project.
I am now in contact with a foreign online bank, I now intend that you open an account in your name in this foreign bank.The money would be transfered to your account which you will open in the bank for both of us, this is the best way,I have found,it will protect us from my bank. I want us to enjoy this money in peace when we conclude,so you should listen to my instructions and follow them
religiously. Also You have to know that I cannot transfer this money in my name as my bank will be aware that it is from me, this is where I need you.
As result of this,you will have to open an account in the corresponding bank. I will obtain a certificate of deposit from this my bank,it will be issued in your name, this will make you the bonafide owner of the funds. After this,the money will be banked online for both of us. We can then instruct the bank to transfer our various shares into our respective home bank accounts. I will also perfect the documentations with the assistance of my attorney to give the transaction the legal right.
Ensure that you keep this transaction confidential and do not disclose to anyone because of the confidentiality nature of this transaction and my work.
