Hello my Dear,
First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, this is by
virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret. Though
I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one
apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring that this is real and genuine.
I am Ronas Jones the personal secretary to Richard Meddings the new
(finance director) director, bills and exchange at the foreign remittance
department of the Standard Chartered Bank London. I came to know you in
my private search for a reliable and reputable person to handle this
Confidential Transaction, which involves the transfer of a huge sum of
money to a foreign account requiring maximum confidence.
MY PROPOSITION; We discovered an abandoned sum of US$14,320,000.00
(Fourteen million three hundred and twenty thousand united states dollars)
in an account that belongs to one of our customers Andreas Schranner
who died along with his wife and entire family on July, 2000, The victims
of the AF4590 crash include all 109 people on board and five who died
on the ground when the plane crashed into the Hotelissimo. For your
confirmations, you can visit this website for more info
Since his death, none of his next-of-kin or relations has come forward
to lay claims for his money as the heir.
We cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for
claim as the Next-Of-Kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking
guidelines, unfortunately, no family member or relative has ever appeared
to claim the said fund. Upon this discovery, we now seek your
permission to have you stand as next of kin to the deceased to help transfer
the funds (Fourteen million three hundred and twenty thousand united
states dollars) into your account as the beneficiary's next of kin
otherwise the fund will be returned to treasury as unclaimed funds.
All documents to enable you receive this funds will be carefully worked
out via high court as the bank do not need money from you to
transfer/remit the fund into you account. Please acknowledge receipt of this
message in acceptance of our mutual business endeavor by furnishing me
with the following:
