|| Dear Confidant,
I am contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a large sum of money from a dormant 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. My name is Raphael Bayan. a staff of one of the leading private banks in my Country Ivory Coast. I discovered an abandoned sum of US$7,500, 000.00 in an account that belongs to one of our foreign Customers
(an American) late George Brumley.
This very account has been dormant for some years now. After my investigations, I discovered that the account owner has died since July 2003 with all his family members in a charter plane crash on Mount Kenya see the CNN report
http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/07/20/kenya.crash/index.html since his death, nobody has come forward to lay claims to this money and recently my bank issued a notice that the account will be declared unserviceable and the funds called to the government treasury since no relative of the deceased customer came up.
In order to avert this negative action, I seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin so that funds can be released in your favor as the next of kin. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual business endeavor by furnishing me with the following if you are willing to work with me Actually,
1. Your full name
2. Postal address
4. Telephone and fax numbers
This information will enable me work on the Deceased account file so as to indicate you as his next of kin after which you can now apply to the Bank officially for the release of the funds to you as the next of kin to the Deceased. We are going to share the total sum on final conclusion of this project. If you are truly disposed and capable of handling this transaction from your end contact me
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....
