With All Due Respect.
My name is Mr Edward A. Montoya, the manager of auditing and Accounting Department, Zenith Bank UK, I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of $17, 200, 000.00 (Seventeen Million Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) immediately to your account. Meanwhile, it was very fortunate for me to come across the deceased file, when I was arranging the old and abandoned customer’s files in other to sign and submit to the entire bank management, as official re-documentation.
However, it is not authorized by the rules guiding our bank for a citizen to make the claim of the fund unless you are a foreigner, that’s the reason why I’m contacting you as a partner to apply for the claim and transfer of the fund smoothly into your reliable bank account as the next of kin to the deceased, and I assure you that this transaction is 100% risks free. If you are really sure of your Trust worthiness, Accountability and confidentiality on this transaction contact me and accept not to change your mind to cheat, or disappoint me when the deposited funds are released to you by our bank;
Reply me as soon as possible so that I will let you know the next steps and procedures to follow in order to finalize this transaction immediately.
I expect your urgent reply
Mr Edward A. Montoya
