Subject: Hello,I'm Louis Goossens,

Hello,

I'm Louis Goossens, with Societe Generale Bank here in Brussels Belgium. I was wondering if you received my last email. I sincerely seek to present you as the Next of Kin to a late client who left behind $145.5 Million USD in a fixed deposit account in my bank before his demise.

The British born client was into Diamond and Gold mining and died without a Next of Kin. I shall obtain the legal documents that will give you legal rights to make this claim legitimately. I am willing to share the funds 60/40 with you and this will be completed within 72 hours. With the legal documents, the bank will approve you as the Next of Kin and pay out this amount to you within three

working days. I considered the funds would be of better use to both of us instead of allowing corrupt politicians confiscate the funds.

Please reach me as soon as possible with your full name, address, direct contact number and occupation for the processing of the legal documents if you are interested and can be trusted to return my own share when you have received the funds in your bank account. More information shall be given to you once I hear from you.

If however you are not interested in the offer, kindly delete thismessage from your mailbox and pretend that I never contacted you. I'll continue my search for a liable person that will help me out.

Best Wishes,

Louis Goossens

Auditor General,

Societe Generale Bank

Brussels, Belgium
