Hello,
My names are Abd Razak Haseeb, a Bank Officer here in Malaysia. I believe it is the wish of God for me to come across you now. I am having an important business discussion I wish to share with you which I believe will interest you, because it is in connection with your last name and you are going to benefit from it.

One Late MR. Abraham a citizen of your country had a fixed deposit with my bank in January 2006 for 36 calendar months, valued at US$34,600,000.00 (Thirty Four Million, Six Hundred Thousand US Dollars) the due date for this deposit contract was the 16th of January 2009. Sadly, Mr. Abraham (Late) was among the death victims in the May 26, 2006 Earthquake disaster in Java, Indonesia that killed over 6,000 people. He was in Indonesia 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. Abraham did not mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened, and he was not married and no children. Last week my Bank Management requested that Abraham should give instructions on what to do about his funds, if to renew the contract. I know this will happen since the last Merger of my bank with CAPIVEST in 2012.

Since then, I have been looking for a means to handle the situation and now, because of the threatening notice from the bank, if my Bank Directors happens to know that Abraham is dead and do not have any Heir, they will not hesitate to divert the funds to their personal selfish uses, I don't want such to happen.
That is why when I saw your last 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 last name with him and my bank head quarters will release the account to you.

There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law according to my laid down modalities. 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 touch many dying lives and also start my own company which has been my dream.

Please reply through my personal mail: [email protected] as you let me know your mind on this, I have more to write you on the follow-up details in my reply as soon as I hear from you. Please let this Secret remain between the both of us only.

Have a nice day and God bless.
Abd Razak
