Firstly I must introduce myself as Mr. Wakelin Mark Anthony.
I am contacting you for a business transfer of a huge sum of money from
a deceased account. Though know that a transaction of this magnitude
will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that
every document that will bring about the success of this transaction
will be provided by an attorney, and all will be well at the end of the
I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction. The
deceased person William Barnes who died in air crash along with his
wife on the 31st October 1999 in an Egyptian airline 990 with other
passengers on board was an American Oil consultant/contractor with the
Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation. You can confirm his death from the
website below which was published by BBC WORLD:
Since his death, none of his next-of-kin are alive to make claims for
this money as his heir, because they all died in the same accident
himself and his wife (May their soul rest in peace). We cannot release
the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the
next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.
Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to stand as a next of
kin to the deceased, as all documentations will be carefully worked to
make you the beneficiary to the funds
£6, 800 000 00 GBP (Six Million, Eight Hundred Thousand Great British
pounds sterling) which will be released in your favor as the next of
kin, Because after twelve years the money will be called back to the
bank bond treasury as unclaimed bills and the money will be shared
amongst the directors of the bank. So it is on this note I decided to
seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of kin/beneficiary to
this funds rather than allow the bank directors to share this money
amongst them at the end of the year. It may interest you to know that
we have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of
the deceased beneficiaries.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, please endeavor to contact me
immediately and do not take undue advantage of the trust I have
bestowed in you.
I await your urgent reply to my private email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Mr. Wakelin Mark Anthony.
