PRIVATE AND URGENT.
I am contacting you on business transfer of a huge sum of money from a
deceased account.Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will
make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all
will be well at the end of the day.We decided to contact you due to the
urgency of this transaction.
We discovered an abandoned sum of (Seven million five hundred thousand
united states dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign
customers who died along with his entire family.Since his death,none of
his next-of-kin or relations has come forward to lay claims for this
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.Upon this discovery, we now seek
your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased as
all documentations will be carefully worked out by us for the funds
(Seven million five hundred thousand united states dollars) to be
released in your favor as the beneficiary's next of kin.It may interest
you to know that we have secured from the probate an order of mandamus
to locate any of deceased beneficiaries.
Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual
business endeavor by furnishing me with the following;
1. Beneficiary name and address
2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers
These requirements will enable us file letter of claim to the
appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favor before the
transfer can be made. We shall be compensating you with 20% of the sum
total at the final conclusion of this project, while the rest shall be
for us. Your share stays while the rest shall be for us for investment
If this proposal is acceptable by you,do not take undue advantage of the
trust we have bestowed in you,
I await your urgent response.
Mr. Harry Handerson.
