I greet you in the name of God almighty with the believe that this message gets to you in good health and state of mind; I am Dr John Chris Anderson the branch manager of the above address (European Access bank). I am contacting you with the view that the content in this message would be of interest to you and mutual benefits to both of us, I know you will be wondering why I am writing you such a sensitive proposal considering the magnitude of the funds involved especially to a total stranger but I wish to inform you here that my contacting you is not by mistake but by virtue of God's doing because I believe that such circumstances of this kind happens for a reason, based on this I decided to write you through my official web address all my bid to erase any form of doubt in order to prove the reality and the legitimacy of this proposal, but as a Christian and man of strong faith I will only urge you to carefully read and give a consideration to this proposal.
A foreigner (German), Christian Erich was an engineer who ran carmaker BMW's museum and also an oil consultant died along with his entire family five years ago in a ghastly air crash in Paris that claim the lives of all the 109 passengers on board.
Late Christian Erich banked with us here at European Access bank and I was the account officer, before his death he made a fixed deposit for twelve calendar months (AMOUNT WITHELD FOR SECURITY REASONS) upon the maturity which expired 4years ago, Valuable efforts has being made by my bank to get in touch with any of the Erich's Family or relatives but there has been no success. This very large sum has since been sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year, and according to the Laws of Britain, at the expiration of 5(five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the British Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.
I wish to let you know that This bank has spent so much all in the bid to track any member of the Mr. Erich's family but all effort proves abortive and I can not sit back here and watch this funds gets into the pocket of already rich and corrupt government officials. As the account officer to the deceased and the clearing officer in charge, my position permits me to attest and release the funds to anybody who comes forward with all the necessary proof of close relationship to the deceased, consequently I am capable of directing you legaly for the documents and proves to front you as the next of kin, it is in this light I am seeking for your godly assistance to participate with me in this project and I willing to compensate you with 30% of the funds for your effort and time,60% for me, while the remaining 10% will be used for God's work(CHARITY)which I will discuss further with you in that regards upon your positive response, I also will provide you with more detail information of the procedures involved.
Lastly I wish to assure you that there is no risk of whatsoever my position and with my 14 years as an experience banker definitely the successful execution of this project is guaranteed. If you do not find this proposal appealing please kindly delete this mail and keep it as a secrete so as not to destroy my career.
