subject How are you my new friend
I am writting to seek your coperation over this business, Please due welcome this letter.
In our bank here we discovered an abandoned sum of $1.5 Million US Dollars (One Million Five Hundred thousand Dollars ) in an account that belong to one of our foreign customers Late Engineer C.A Freddi,an expatriate here working with Shell Oil Company Lome-Togo as their Marketing General Manager unfortunately lost his life with his wife and their only daughter on June 1st, 2009, Air France flight 447, a scheduled international flight from Rio de Janeiro to Paris, crashed in the Atlantic Ocean in an area roughly 600 miles, or 960 kilometers, off the northeast coast of Brazil.
Please try to go through the web sites for more informations.
Since his demise, non of his family members knew about this account and it has been in the safe deposit account until I discovered that it cannot be claimed since our client is a foreign national and we are sure that he has no next of kin here to file claims over the money.
As the director of the department, this discovery was brought to my office so as to decide what is to be done.I decided to seek ways through which to transfer this money out of the bank and out of the country too.
The total sum will be shared as follows: 50% for me, 50% for you and expenses incidental occur during the transfer will be incure by both of us. The transfer is risk free on both sides hence you are going to follow my instruction till the fund transfer to your account. The total amount in the account is One million five hundred thousand dollars (US$1,500,000.00).
with my positions a staff of the bank,I am handicapped because I cannot operate foreign accounts and cannot lay bonafide claim over this money.
The client was a foreign national and you will only be asked to act as his next of kin and I will supply you with all the necessary information and bank data to assist you in being able to transfer this money to any bank of your choice where this money could be transferred into.
If this money remains here till the end of this year 2009,the board of directors of this bank will confiscate this account and thereby declearing the fund a lost money without claim,citing the non operational of the dormant account since the death of late Engineer
I want you to keep this transaction secret and confidential as I am hoping to retire with my share of this money at the end of transaction which will be when this money is safety in your account.
Thanks and waiting for your urgent response with your contact fax and phone numbers .
