Subject Line: ARE YOU INTERESTED IN THE CLAIM OF THE FUNDS?
ICEP is charged with the responsibility offinding bank accounts in Switzerland belonging to non-Swiss citizens, which have remained dormant since World War II.
It may interest you to know that in July of 1997, the Swiss Banker’s Association published a list of dormant accounts originally opened by non-Swiss citizens. These accounts had been dormant since the end of World War II (May 9, 1945). Most belonged to Holocaust victims. The continuing efforts of the Independent Committee of Eminent Persons (ICEP) have since resulted in the discovery of additional dormant accounts – 54,000 in December, 1999.
The published lists contain all types of dormant accounts, including interest-bearing savings accounts, securities accounts, safe deposit boxes, custody accounts, and non-interest-bearing transaction accounts.
Numbered accounts are also included. Interest is paid on accounts that were interest bearing when established.
The Claims Resolution Tribunal (CRT) handles processing of all claims on accounts due non-Swiss citizens. A dormant account of ORDNER ADELE with a credit balance of 50,000,000 US dollar plus accumulated interest was discovered by me. The beneficiary was murdered during the holocaust era, leaving no WILL and no possible records for trace of heirs.
The Claims Resolution Tribunal has been mandated to report all unclaimed funds for permanent closure of accounts and transfer of existing credit balance into the treasury of Switzerland government as provided by the law for management of assets of deceased beneficiaries who died interstate (living no wills).
Being a member of ICEP, I have all secret details and necessary contacts for claim of the funds without any hitch. The funds will be banked in any country of your choice outside Switzerland or a tax free country,
where we can safely withdrew the funds and we can share the funds and use it for investment of our choice. Due to the sensitive nature of my job, I need a foreigner to HELP claim the funds.
All that is required of you is to provide me with your details for processing of the necessary legal and administrative claim documents for transfer of the funds to you.
You can find additional information about unclaimed funds through the
internet at the following websites:
http://www.avotaynu.com , http://www.icheic.org ,www.livingheirs.com ,www.wiesenthal.com
The Holocaust Claims Processing Office has put funds in Escrow awaiting submission of valid claims for necessary disbursement. I find myself privileged to have this information and this may be a great opportunity for a life time of success without risks.
Please include your direct telephone when responding to this mail ,for further explanation to you.
Thank you for your prompt response.
