I am Mr. Joseph T Damane (FCAA), the chief accountant of African Development Bank (ADB). There is an account open in this bank in 1999 and since 2001 nobody has operated on this account again. After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this money out urgently it would be forfeited for nothing.
The owner of this account is Mr. Andreas Schranner, German Business Man and a miner at Kruger Gold Company, a Geologist by profession and he died since 2000.No other person knows this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that this company does not know anything about this account and the money involved is Twenty Six Million Seven Hundred thousand United States Dollars (US$ 26,700,000.000).
I want us to first transfer US$20 Million from this money into your safe overseas account before the rest. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a local bank here, but can only be approved to any foreign account because the money is in United States Dollars and the former owner
Mr. Andreas Schranner is a foreigner too. You can view the web site bellow for more information on our late client.
This deposit was for 5 years so it has over matured hence I made effort to contact my client but could not reach him. I was forced to travel to Germany and there I got the tragic news that, my client Mr. Andreas Schranner, his wife Maria, their daughter Andrea Eich, his son in law Christian, and their children Maximilian and Katharina, all perished on the Monday, 31 July, 2000 plane crash in western German city of Moenchengladbach. 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. It may interest you to know that I can have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of deceased beneficiaries
I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you as soon as you indicate your sincerity to co-operate with me, and capability to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust according to my instruction and advice for our mutual benefit because this opportunity may never come again in my life.
Please acknowledge receipt of this message so we shall be negotiate your percentages on your response before conclusion of this project, while the rest shall be for us for investment purposes, if this proposal is acceptable to you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you.
