I am Mr. Luc Timmermann, a senior Auditor of EUROCLEAR Belgium, a finance and investment management company in Brussels Belgium. In the course of performing my duties, I discovered a floating fund in an account which was opened in January 1997 belonging to a foreigner (Names Withheld for security reasons) who died in 1999 in a ghastly motor accident along Antwerp auto route with his wife and two kids.
Records show that every effort made by our company to track any member of his family or any one as the next of kin has failed because the deceased died leaving no heir or a will in his file. I and my partner have decided to contact you to stand as the next of kin since you bear the same last name and are from the same Country with the deceased.
We intend to facilitate the transfer of this sum of Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars ($8.500.000.00) in the Investment Deposit to a safe account overseas. I am therefore proposing that you quietly partner with us by standing as the next of kin and provide an account or set up a new one that will serve the purpose of receiving this fund. For your assistance in this venture, we are ready to part with a good percentage of the entire funds. After going through the deceased records filed in our office,I discovered that no one has operated this account since 1999 till date and he died without any heir hence the money has been floating.
The information we have on this account is privileged and confidential as no other person has access to this. If we do not remit this money urgently, it would be forfeited and subsequently converted to company’s funds which will benefit only the executive directors of my firm. This money can be approved to you legally and with all the necessary documentary approvals in your name. However, you would be required to show some proof of claim which I will provide you with and also guide you on how to make your applications.
Please do give me a response by email so that I can send you detailed information on the modalities of my proposition. I completely trust you to keep this proposition absolutely confidential. For Security reasons kindly forward a copy of this letter back to me via email stating your direct telephone and fax numbers where I can reach you easily.
I look forward to your prompt response
