Hello Willmann,

Thank you for getting back to me. I am happy you replied my mail, My name
is Mr. Khalaf Al Dhaheri and I am a Bank Officer in Sharjah, United Arab
Emirates. I contacted you in regards to an opportunity in my office that
will be of an immense benefit to both of us. I have been in search of
someone with the last name (WILLMANN) in your country for this business
transaction that I am about to explain to you, so when I saw your contact
details online, I was pushed to contact you and see how best we can assist
each other. I believe it is the wish of God for me to come across you now.

One Late Peter Willmann, a citizen of your country had a fixed deposit
with my bank in 2005 for 144 calendar months, valued at US$30,000,000.00
(Thirty Million United State Dollars) the due date for this deposit
contract was last 22nd of January 2017. Sadly Peter was among the death
victims in the May 27 2006 Earthquake disaster in Java, Indonesia that
killed over 5,000 people. He was in Indonesia on a business trip and that
was how he met his end. My bank management is yet to know about his death,
I knew about it because he was my friend and I am his account officer.
Peter did not mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened,
and he was not married and no children.

Last week my Bank Management requested that Peter should give instructions
on what to do about his funds, if to renew the contract. I know this will
happen and that is why I have been looking for a means to handle the
situation, because if my Bank Directors happens to know that Peter is dead
and do not have any Heir, they will take the funds for their personal use,
so I don't want such to happen. That was why when I saw your last name I
was happy and I am now seeking your co-operation to present you as Next of
Kin/ Heir to the account, since you have the same last name with him and my
bank head quarters will release the account to you. There is no risk
involved; the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement
that will protect you from any breach of law. It is better that we claim
the money, than allowing the Bank Directors to take it, they are rich
already.
I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the funds equal,
50/50% to both parties, my share will assist me to start my own company
which has been my dream. Let me know your mind on this and please do treat
this information as TOP SECRET. We shall go over the details once I receive
your urgent response.

Have a nice day and God bless. Anticipating your communication.
