Subject: Hello Dear,
I have a great deal i want to discuss with you and seek your interest.
One of our late customers who had a fixed deposit with my bank in 2010 for 48 calendar months, valued at US$25,000,000.00 (Twenty five Million US Dollars) the due date for this deposit contract was this 16 of February 2014.
Sadly he was among the death victims in the February 22 2011 Earthquake disaster in Canterbury region in New Zealand's South Island that killed many people. He was in New Zealand on a business trip and that was how he met his end. My bank management is yet to know about his death, I knew
about it because he was my friend and I am his account officer. He did not mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened, and he was was not married and no children. Last week my Bank Management requested that I should give instructions on what to do about his funds, if to renew the contract.
I know this will happen and that is why I have been looking for a means to handle the situation, because if my Bank Directors happens to know that he is dead and do not have any Heir, they will take the funds for their personal use, so I don't want such to happen. That was why when I saw your
name I was happy and I am now seeking your co-operation to present you as Next of Kin/ Heir to the account, since you have the same name with him and my bank head quarters will release the money to you.
There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of law. It is better that we claim the money, than allowing the Bank Directors to take it, they are rich already.
I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the funds equal, 50/50% to both parties, my share will assist me to start my own company which has been my dream.
Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information as top secret. We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response. For confidential purpose write me back at: email@example.com
Have a nice day and God bless.
Anticipating your communication.
