Reference the website below for confirmation
ICEP is charged with the responsibility of finding bank
accounts in Switzerland belonging to non-Swiss
indigenes, which have remained dormant since World War

accounts, and non-interest-bearing transaction
accounts. Numbered accounts are also included.
Interest is paid on accounts that were interest

processing of all claims on accounts due non-Swiss
citizens. A dormant account of NEUMANN ECKSTEIN
with a credit balance of 11,000,000 US dollar plus

details and necessary contacts for claim of the money

Due to the sensitive nature of my job, I need a
foreigner to HELP claim the money as the beneficiary. All that is
required is for you to provide me your details for
processing of the necessary legal, and administrative
claim documents for transfer of the money to you.
Provide me with your full name, address, and
telephone/fax. The money will be transferred to a secure account in your name ,
because you will be acting as the next of kin to the deceased
person that can claim the money with claim documents
in your name in the Carribean Island, and you can
now start accessing the money gradually and
transferring to your country and other banks of choice
in the world. The banks in Caribbean Islands have internet
banking and telephone banking facility
with electronic wire transfer feature through
the internet and also anonymous ATM debit card. All these
features mean additional security and convenience,
so that you can stay in your country and access the money.
My share will be 60 percent and your share is
40 per cent of the total amount. THERE IS NO RISK INVOLVED.
You can find additional information about unclaimed
money through the internet at the following websites:
The Holocaust Claims Processing Office has allocated the money for payment to
awaiting submission of valid claims for necessary disbursement.
I find myself priviledged to have this information and
this is a great opportunity for a life time of
success without risks.
