FROM THE DESK OF : WILLIAM MORIS
Before proceeding, I wish to introduce myself to you; I am William Moris a
staff of Natwest Bank plc London. I am the head of the accounts
department. I am pleased to get across to you for a very urgent and
profitable business proposal which I believe will profit the both of us
after completion. I contacted you after a carefull thought that you might
be capable to handle this business transaction, which i will explained
below.The sum of ( £12,500,000.00 Million Pounds), has been floating as
unclaimed since 2000 in my bank as all efforts to get across to the
relatives of our client who deposited the money have hit the stones.
There is this immigrant Mr. Andreas schranner, property magnate who was
based in the U.K, who happens to be one of our very good clients. On the
25Th of July 2000, Mr. Andreas schranner, his wife Maria ,their daughter
Andrî’eich , and their other children katharina and maximilian all died in
the air France concord plane crash bound for NewYork in their plan for a
world cruise. All attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. My
position here at my office requires me to investigate and I therefore made
further investigations and discovered that Mr. Andreas Schranner did not
declare any next of kin or relation in all his official
documents,including his bank deposit paperwork in my bank.According to the
British Law the money will revert to the ownership of the British
government if nobody applies to claim the fund.To avoid this money being
sent to the British treasury as unclaimed funds,I have decided to seek
your assistance to have you stand as his next of kin so that the said fund
( £12,500,000.00 million pounds), would be released in your name as the
next of kin and paid into your account.All documents and proof that will
have you claim this fund without stress will be forwarded to you upon your
response to this mail more so, i want to inform you that i have
unanimously agreed to offer you (£4m of the total sum for the assistance
and role you are going to play in this transaction,(£2m)will be given to
charity organisations in your country with your supervision while the
remaining will be for me.
Please send your personal informations (full names, address, country of
residence,state,zip, sex, age, occupation, confidential telephone and fax
number) in your reply to this business transaction.
