Upon special auditing panel set-up by the Boards of directors of the ABN-AMRO BANK LTD (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) to investigate all credit account operated by it customers, that has been in operation for the last Six (6) years. We discovered a credit account with A/C N0: NL85ABNA6008341843 floating with a huge fund amounting to (7,467,000.00 Euros).
On further trace I came across the file and found out that the true owner of this funds is Mr. Andreas Schranner, a German who was a property magnate but unfortunately lost his life, including his wife and their daughter in the plane crash (Flight AF4590) which crashed on July 31st 2000 killing all 109 people on board.

I have been monitoring this account ever since I discovered this information and found out that nobody has ever come on behalf of the Late Mr. Andreas Schranner as his next of kin for this fund.
I am contacting you as a reliable partner to execute this transaction with me. Upon your acceptance, I will provide you with his account file informationâs and documents of deposit of the account and a text of application you will submit to the bank and I will then instruct you on how to claim as the next of kin to the late Mr. Andreas Schranner, so that the funds could be transferred to your Account for us to share, without any question arising from the bank.
And for your information, the transfer payment to apply for as the next of kin should be Five Million Five Hundred Thousand and fifty five Euros (5,500,055.00 Euros). As soon as you confirm your interest and co-operation with me, I will give you guidelines on how you can transact with the bank for the approval of the funds to your A/C.
