Hope you are doing great,i am sorry for barging into your privacy without
any prior invitation or having solicited for such transaction,out of
necessity i had to contact you on this transaction.
I am contacting you to help transfer the fund of my late client,Mr Pablo
Bogarin who died years back without any prior written/verbal will.I happened
to be his chief accounting officer,this said client deposited the sum of
Ј52,954,000.00 (Fifty Two Million Nine Hundred And Fifty Four Thousand
British Pounds Sterling) has been floating without anyone coming for it.The
account was opened in 2008 and he died in 17th April 2009 without a (written
or oral WILL) and till March 2010 nobody has operated on this account.
Subsequent to my personal investigation i found out that he was single
before his death and he died of heart attack.I had to make a swift transfer
of the money to another country for safety purposes,now i needed a foreigner
who could help transfer the fund to his country for investment,this is as a
matter of urgency that deserved utmost confidentiality and commitment.
Kindly get back to me if you are interested as i have personally contracted
an attorney who will help procure all requisite legal documents in your name
as a back-up,while you are to liaise with the bank after all legal documents
are ready in your names.Thanks as i look forward hearing from.
