The Fraudulent E-mail Message

Dear mutual friend and partner,
This email is confidential,You have to treat it as such.I do hope this email will not embarrass you since I had no previous correspondence with you but I do know so much about you.I am sending this proposal with due sense of humanity, responsibility and i want you to give it thorough attention it deserves.

I am Mr.Mathew Pablo, an independent consultant to a bank in London UK. I want to inquire from you if you can be capable to handle a transaction for our benefit? I have a wealthy client who died in a terrible and tragic plane crash, the victims of the AF4590 crash include all 109 people on board and five who died on the ground when the plane crashed into the Hotelissimo. My client Mr.Christian Eich,57, an engineer who ran car maker BMW's museum, his wife and two children and his wife's parents were also among the victims.Please visit the BBC WEBSITE TO VIEW DETAILS: /2/hi/europe/859479.stm

My proposal / the transaction is about seeking your consent to present you as the next of kin/beneficiary of the amount US ($4,215,000.00) that is four MILLION,TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) He left in his account in the bank where i work before his death. If no one claims the fund it will go back to the Government of UK where it will only benefit greedy politicians. The Fund is currently in a suspense account awaiting claim, as i speak to you now,the bank officials has no idea that my client Mr.Christian Eich is dead, i found out about this after my investigations on the late Mr.Christian Eich's profile. I therefore seek your consent to present you as the next of kin/beneficiary to the deceased so that the total amount of ($4,215,000.00) can be transferred in your name into your bank account.

In that regard, i decided to seek your consent for this prospective opportunity. Have it at the back of your mind, that the transaction does not involve any RISK, and does not need much engagement from you, since i am familiar with this kind of transaction being an insider in the bank. I have resolved to offer you 40% of the total fund, reserve 5% for sundry expenses that may be incurred during the process of executing this transaction, donate 5% to the local churches and charity homes, and keep 50% percent for my own share.

Note: Our banking rules over here states that a next of kin/beneficiary can be either a friend,business partner,relatives etc. Necessary modalities will be worked out to enable us carry out the fund claim under a legitimate arrangement. All i need from you is trust and sincerity, and that you will only take 40% out of the total amount once this money is transferred to you in your country. Please reply immediately via my private email contact: (mathewpablo1 I will give you more details about the transaction when I receive your affirmative response, more clarification information. I'm waiting to hear from you soon.

Thank you for your attention,
Mathew Pablo.
