Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Mr. Charles Andrew, head of foreign operations of a bank in Europe. A customer of my bank made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months. All efforts to trace his next of kin has proved abortive, and his funds may soon revert to the government.

My proposition is for you to stand in as the next of kin to the depositor. As stated above, he died without making a WILL. He shall be able to employ the services of an attorney to arrange the transfer of rights and privileges of the deceased to you.

Kindly send your details to intestify your interest in this transaction;Name and address, Age and occupation, Direct Telephone and fax number.

I shall then provide you with more details, if your response is of interest.

Best regard,
Mr Charles Andrew
