With many of us including you, me and him or her wanting to start our own businesses, it is very easy to be tempted to enter into such Business Proposal deals where some of them are not legitimate but rather, being other ways in which scammers use to scam others just like this scam deal from “email@example.com” claiming to a offer a cash deposit of up to €12,700,000.00″ in what is referred as a “Confidential and Top secret” deal.
If you are reading this and haven’t received this same email as you will see attached below, you must be lucky and not yet a scammers target but who knows who will be next.. I must admit that this week, I have been a target basing on the number of emails I have received with each claiming to offer a different deal.
In this Business proposal scam which claims to be from a Lawyer, it is noted that a total of “Twelve Million Seven Hundred Thousand Euros Only” was deposited by the lawyers late client before he passed away in 2014. The email requests the recipient to be the beneficiary of those funds in the “Confidential and Top secret” deal.

Firstly, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction; this is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day. Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you. It may surprise you receiving this letter from me, since there was no previous correspondence between us My name is Dr/Barrister antonio white , (Spanish Lawyer and Doctor in Law) a personal Attorney to Late Mr. Michael , an expatriate engineer who has worked with the Mining and Smelting Company (Asturiana de Zinc S.A. Spain).
My purpose of contacting you is for you to help secure a cash deposit left behind by my late client, to avoid it being confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Bank where this cash deposit valued €12,700,000.00 (Twelve Million Seven Hundred Thousand Euros Only) this money was deposited by my late client before he passed away, he deid by stoke and cancer on the 16th April 2014, he left the fund with no Will and up till today his relatives remained unknown.
All relevant documents and information as regards to the cash deposit is in my possession as we speak therefore I guarantee the success of this transaction in all legal definitions. As his attorney I have contacted the bank for the claim of the fund and the Bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin or the account will be declared unserviceable and the fund will be retired by the state (Ayuntamiento de Madrid). This type of incident is not new, there are many people who try to evade taxes in their country of origin by depositing their money in a foreign secret accounts but I never knew my late client had one until his accidental death and the eventual disclosure from my contact in the bank. Since this account is secret and there is no one left to claim the fund I am contacting you. I am actually asking for your consent to present you to the Bank as the Next of Kin/beneficiary of my late client’s fund, since you have the same last name, so that the fund will be released to you as his next of kin. All the legal documents to back up your claim as my client’s next of Kin are with me. All I require is your honest cooperation and absolute confidentiality in order to guarantee success.
Upon the completion of the transaction I wish to point out that I want 20% of this money to be shared among the charity Organizations,
while the remaining will be shared equally between us. Please be assured that this transaction is entirely risk free as I guarantee the legality
and success of this transaction. For more information please contact me on telephone +34 632 634 574, fax +34917 903 707 or E-mail: abogadantoniowhite@consultant. com

It is intended to capture ones attention so as to be able to get money out of him or her since at the end of it all, you are required to send money in the name of processing fees. All I can say is that once you get such an email, please ignore it and do other things as it has no gain other than being pure scam.
