I am Mr.Manuel Jimeneze the general auditor of a bank in spain. There is this floating funds which is to the tune of Seven Million Euros (â¬7,000,000.00 Euros) Which as been floating in this A/C nÂº 5005874BS1000 since 2000 after the death of the true owner of the funds Late Mr. John Cuthbertson, an American who was a private business man unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31st 2000, including his wife and only daughter. You can read more about the crash on visiting these sites below.
I just came across his file again when I was auditing all the credit account, and I find out that nobody has ever come on behalf of the Late Mr. John Cuthbertson as his next of kin to claim the funds. And I have been monitoring this account since I discovered this information.
In this case I have concluded to contact you if you are reliable to execute this transaction with me, then I will instruct you on how to claim as the next of kin to the late Mr. John Cuthbertson, so that the funds could be transferred to your overseas A/C, if only you can co-operate with me.
After the transaction is being successful I will come to your country to collect my own share which is 55% for me and 45% for you, feel free to give your own opinion on this transaction modality if you wish. Please contact me through my private email. (firstname.lastname@example.org) send to me the following information
