Good day Sir/Madam
A reputable deceased customer of this bank, by name Mr. Pieter Van Tonder from your country, who hereinafter shall be referred to as my client, whose life and that of his entire family were lapsed while on holidays in a resort in Japan on the March 11, 2011 prior to Japan tsunami natural disaster.
Hence I contacted you on this basis with my private email due to security precautions, for you, to assist me in repatriating the money left behind by my client, before it will be confiscated, or declared unserviceable by the bank. The amount involved is valued at $20.5 Million United States Dollars. (Twenty million and five hundred thousand United States Dollars.)
This bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin, or his account will be confiscated because there is a government gazette/mandate, authorizing all British banks to freeze or confiscate any account that has not been serviceable in a long period of time. This is geared towards capital flight for the economy.
My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the Next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you.
These funds will be officially disbursed to you by the bank; while the proceeds will be shared between both of us in these percentages, 60% to me and 40% to you.
All legal documents to back up your claims as my client's next-of-kin is relevant & will be provided to you on the course of the transaction. What I require of you is your honest cooperation and TRUST to enable us see this transaction through. This transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law & it is 100% risk free.
If this business proposition offends your moral values, do accept my apologies but if not, then contact me at once to indicate your interest, by giving me urgently your details as stated below:
YOUR FULL NAMES:
PHYSICAL / MAILING ADDRESS:
COMPANY / POSITION:
PERSONAL TELEPHONE & FAX NUMBERS:
