From: melessa freya firstname.lastname@example.org To: XXXX Date: XX March 2017 at 13:16 Subject: READ AND GET BACK TO ME PLEASE
Thank you very much for your mail,please, kindly pardon me for any inconvenience this massage may cost you because I know it may come to you as a surprise as we have no previous correspondence.Anyway let me start by introducing myself. I am Ms,Melessa Freya a divorcee with one kid,i am working with the Central Bank of Turkish here in Turkey.I got your contact through my personal search.
Now listen On the 31st of July, 2004 our Bank client Mr. Andreas Schranner a German property magnate and also a businessman, made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Eleven millions Five Hundred Thousand United state Dollars Only (USD$11.5M) in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, with no response. Recently another notification was sent and still no response came from him. I later found out that Mr. Schranner along with his wife and only daughter along side their in-law and grand kids had been killed in a terrible plane crash.
After further investigation it was also discovered that Mr. Andreas Schranner did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So,The Eleven million five hundred thousand United State Dollars (USD$11.5M) is still in my bank and no one will come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the Turkish financial law, at the expiration of 9 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Turkish Government if nobody applies for claim. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Mr. Andreas Schranner so that you will be able to receive his funds.
I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. My attorney will prepare the necessary documents that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr. Andreas Schranner, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names, Address and copy of identification so that my attorney can start his job. After you have been made the next of kin, my attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and of probate in your favor for the movement of the funds to an offshore account that will be provided by you.
There is no risk involved in this transaction at all, as we are going to adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall then share in the ratio of 60% for me and 40% for you.
I need your total devotion and trust to see this through. I know we have not met before, but I am very confident that we will be able to establish the necessary trust that we desire to execute this project.I have attach my pictures here for your reference.Should you be interested please send me information’s below,
- Full names and Age
- Private phone number
- Current residential address
- Occupation (COMPULSORY)
And finally after that I shall provide you with more details on this transaction. Your earliest response to this letter will be highly appreciated.
God bless you.

I am pleased that you have read and completely understood my email,I have sent your details to my attorney who will put together the perfected paper work to be sent to my bank for the release of the funds,this should take not longer than a day or two so you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
Like i explained in my previous email, you will be required to open an offshore non-resident account with a foreign bank which i will direct you.Below are the reasons i prefer you to open a new account;
1, We need a bank that shares the same swift telex confirmation code with my bank; this will make it easy for me to transfer the 11.5M U.S.D from my branch directly to the account which will be opened in your names.
2, Funds transferred with the swift confirmation in and out of Turkey usually takes a maximum of 6 hours to reach the receiving account.
3, Funds transferred to the Africa,United States, Great Britain, Canada and the entire Arab region are always seriously checked against terrorism funding and other suspicious acts. 11.5M U.S.D is not an amount that can be moved to your country without the government asking much questions.
4, The offshore bank will be able to receive huge volume without resistance according to the financial regulations of the bank. This will keep all parties on safe end.
5, As staffs of the Bank of Turkey it is not advisable for me to use any of my existing accounts be it foreign or local because it will seem like i am transferring the funds to my-self.
This account will be set up in your names, once the account is ready and all documents from my office are in perfect place then i will effect a direct wire of the total amount (USD$11.5M) Eleven millions Five Hundred Thousand United state Dollars into the account. I have decided to have the funds transferred to the Asian bank is because the bank shares the same swift telex confirmation code with my bank.The transfer will be via swift system which is confirm-able in 6 hours.
I will furnish you with the details needed to finalize this transaction. The details will include the complete information of the bank i have proposed. Please note that your only financial obligation will be to open a non-resident offshore account with a bank in Asian. I am not sure what it costs to open the account but i am sure its something you can handle, here in Turkey it cost about 600 -700 dollars to open a non resident account.
Please remember that this transaction must be strictly confidential. You will receive the documents prepared by my attorney.Here I’m sending to you the original copy of fund certificate of deposit and attached copy of my work I.D card for your reference only.
I look forward to your positive response. Have a great day !!!
God bless you.
