Subject: URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL.
Date: Sun 27 Apr 2008 17 32 06 0200
To: undisclosed-recipients ;
I am Mrs.Adela Martinez, Bank Manager of Barclays Bank, Madrid branch in Spain .
I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you .On August
6, 2003, a British contractor with the Spanish Petroleum Corporation (REPSOL),
Mr. Barry Kelly made a numbered fixed deposit for twelve calendar months, valued
at US$30,000,000.00 in my Branch. On maturity, we sent a routine notification to
his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and
finally his contract employers, the Spanish Petroleum Corporation (REPSOL),
wrote to inform us that Mr. Barry Kelly died from an automobile accident in
Berlin, and he died without MAKING A WILL, and all attempts by the British
Embassy to trace his next of kin was fruitless.
I therefore, made further investigations and discovered that Mr. Barry Kelly was
an immigrant from Bahamas and only recently obtained British citizenship few
years ago. He did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official
documents, including his Bank deposit paperwork.
The total of US$30,000,000.00 is still in my bank in a dormant Account. No one
will ever come forward to claim it, and according to Spanish law after 5 years,
the money will revert to the ownership of the Spanish Government if the account
owner is certified dead. Sequel to this fact, I am looking for a foreigner who
will stand as the next of kin to MR.BARRY KELLY. After processing the paper
works that will reflect you as the next of kin to our late client you will
henceforth become the new and sole beneficiary to the total funds.
The total of USD30m will then be paid into an account that you will provide for
us in the sharing ratio of 60% for me, 40% for you. There is no risk involved at
all, and all the paper work for this transaction will be done by me using my
position and connection in the bank. The entire transaction shall be governed by
the banking procedures of Spain , you have my words.
This business transaction is guaranteed; hence you should indicate your interest
by replying immediately with your Name, Address, Occupation, Phone/Fax Numbers
or otherwise delete this email for my sake and my family.
However if you consider it ok, please observe the utmost confidentiality, and be
rest assured that this transaction will be most profitable for both of us
because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country. You
are to send your reply to my private email address (email@example.com).
Thank you so much and looking forward to your urgent reply.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
