Sunday, 21 July 2013 = Scam

Dear ,

I choose to reach you because of your profile. I got your contact when i was in search of a relative to the late beneficiary to an account with my bank. Your profile happen to be the only one close enough to be his far relative as you both have the same surname. I wish to solicit for your urgent assistance in what i strongly believe will be of great benefit to both of us. I am a Manager with a Bank in Cote D' Ivoire also known as "Ivory Coast in English. The issue I am presenting to you is a case of one of my late customer, a businessman, a national of your country who died leaving unclaimed funds with my bank. In the year 2003, my late customer made a fixed deposit here in my bank totalling $15 million (Fifteen Million Dollars) which was due to be collected in 2008 after 4 years maturity with accrued dividends.

On my yearly appraisal of my customers at the turn of every year, I discovered that this fixed deposit remained overdue for retrieval. I had put up series of mails and bank notifications to him which were sent back as failure delivery. It was a year ago that i discovered that he passed on along with his wife and only child through 2004 Indian ocean Tsunami while resorting at Khao Lake in Thailand. Since learning of his death, I have managed his account expecting any of his extended relatives to come forward to claim his money but all attempts to trace his relatives over the years has been fruitless since he did not declare any of his relative's information in his banking records with us. Added to this, professional ethics obligates us to act with extreme confidentiality when dealing with clients accounts of this type. According to my country "Cote D' Ivoi re" banking law, the money will be bequeathed to the government if it remains unclaimed by a certain period which is almost near. However, I don't belong to that school of thought which proposes that the fortunes of deceased people be given to the government and I am fully convinced that no one would come forth to claim this fund, as all measures applied to locate the relative of the late beneficiary has failed. I decided to front you as a relative to the late beneficiary since you bear the same surname, by so my bank management will acknowledge you as his next of kin and accept to release the fund in your favour. This operation will be done within 7 working days after you must have filed in your claims transfer application to my bank. I will prepare

every detailed information and proof of fund that will assist you to claim the funds as the next of kin to the late beneficiary. After the confirmation of the fund in your account, the proceeds will be shared 50/50. Again, I feel that you may be apprehensive and consider this amount too big for you to defend. It does not matter, as there are documents to back it up. This transaction is risk free and as the most senior account manager with the bank, be rest assured that all documents to enable you get this fund as the next of kin will be carefully worked out by me. Do not be bothered that you are not related in any way to my late customer as I am in position to affix your name as the next of kin. Kindly send your reply enclosing your Full Names, Contact Address and Phone Number to me for confidentiality, to enable me talk to you before I send you the certi ficate of deposit and other relevant information relating to this fund transfer. I need not emphasize the confidentiality of this issue and I therefore appeal to you not discuss this request with anybody, even if you decline to take full advantage of this great and urgent opportunity in my bank.

I look forward to your quick reply through my secured email ( )

Yours Sincerely,

Nathaniel M.
