CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER
30 ST VINCENT PLACE
GLASGOW G1 2HL
My name is Mr David Thorburn , the chief operating officer with the above
Bank. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.
On January 1, 2003, a United Arab Emirates Merchant, Mr Abraham Zachary,
made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at
US$20,000,000.00 (Twenty Million Dollars only) with my bank . Upon
maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got
no reply. After some months, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered
from his business partner that Mr. Abraham Zachary died from an automobile
accident while on a business trip. On further investigation, I found out
that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of
kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr.Abraham
Zachary did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official
documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. The said
amount is still intact in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over
with the principal sum
at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it.
I am contacting you since you are a foreigner to stand as the next of kin
to Mr. Abraham Zachary.
I would want you to provide to send to me as a matter of urgency
your full names and address,phone and fax numbers so that the attorney
will prepare the necessary documents and
affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin.
We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and notarization
of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of
probate/administration in your favor for the transfer.
A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then
facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of
The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of
75% for me and 20% for you and 5% for Expenses Incurred in the course of
There is no risk at all as all the paperworks for this transaction will be
done by the attorney and with my position as a Director,guarantees the
successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please
reply immediately to my email box.
Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and
relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.
Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy
You should observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall
require your assistance to invest my share in your country.
Thank you in anticipation of your urgent reply.
