From: Mr. Manuel Woodgate
Subject: Next Of Kin To Late Mr. Thompson,
I apologize if the contents here under are contrary to your moral ethics, but please treat it with absolute secrecy and personal courtesy. I am Mr. Manuel Woodgate a senior account officer / auditor with one of the foreign banks here in Italy . I have a business, which I would like to introduce to you, and I think it would be of benefit to us. This is just an opportunity that came my way, and hence I thought it wise to utilize it.
In the process of auditing foreign accounts this quarter, I and one of my colleagues recently discovered that there is a dormant account valued at the sum $25,000,000.00 (Twenty five Million United States Dollars) and after due verification of this account we discovered that the account owner/holder (Mr Thompson ) passed on with his family couple of years back in a plane crash, and that is why the account has been d dormant and as such a close balance of $25,000,000.00 has been lying in the Bank unclaimed.
The idea of presenting somebody to stand as his next of kin to claim the funds in his dormant account came into our mind, that is how and why we have decided to contact you so as to present you as his Next of Kin, so that the $25,000,000.00 in his dormant account would be transferred to you as his Next of Kin, and we will compensate you for doing that. Upon your response we would discuss with you on the percentage we have decided to offer you.
In view of this, I am seeking for your co-operation and understanding to stand as the next of kin to our deceased customer to enable us claim the fund from my Bank, if not the $25,000,000.00 will be declared unclaimed by the Bank after this quarter and hence his account will be frozen and the money confiscated. Hence, if this proposal is OK by you , Please kindly get in touch with me immediately, strictly via my private email address only: Manuelwoodgate@yahoo.com enable me enlighten you on how we are to proceed.
On getting your response, we shall agree on the percentage we will give you as I stated before. Meanwhile, we intend to invest part of our own share in real estate or any lucrative business in your country, and we would appreciate if you can put us in the right part where we can invest when the time comes Considering your stand in this matter, I will not contact any person or companies until I hear from you, so as to enable me decide on what to do next.
Be rest assured that this business is 100% risk free and would be conducted on a legitimate ground, which will protect you and me from every breach of law. We wait for your prompt response.
Mr. Manuel Woodgate
NB: PLEASE NOTE THAT IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU ARE NOT RELATED TO MY LATE CLIENT OR NOT: THE FUND WILL STILL BE PAID TO YOU,SINCE I AM PRESENTING YOU AS HIS NEXT OF KIN.
