Good Day To You!
Please accept my sincere apologizes if my email does not meet your business or personal ethics. I will first introduce myself as Jeffery Branford, A staff in the Card Accounts Management Section of a very well-known bank, here at London United Kingdom.
One of our bank accounts here, has being with holding a current balance of ?1,346,150.07 (One Million, Three Hundred and Forty Six Thousand, One Hundred and Fifty Great British Pounds Sterling and Point Seven Pence Only) and has been DRAFTED AS DORMANT, hence, it was last operated Four (4yrs) ago. From my private investigations and confirmation, the owner of this said bank account, a Foreigner by name, Anthony Ludwig died on the 4th of January 2014 in a boat accident mishap that occurred here at Birmingham, UK.
Since then, nobody has done anything as regards claiming of this money, as he has no traces of family member who has any knowledge as to the existence of either this bank account or the funds here; and also Information from our National Immigration Services here, states that he was ONLY on a single entry into the UK, and had proposed to establish a Real Estate Firm here at United Kingdom, hence the deposit of this very fund here at our bank.
I have confidently discussed this issue with some of our bank officials, although, some showed interest, and some refused, but, on the contrary, we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with this situation. We therefore propose to do this business with you, and we wish that you stand in as the Next of Kin to attest to this fund, so that we can have the fund and Bank Account details released to you after due processes have been followed.
I am assuring you that this transaction is totally free of risks and troubles as the fund is 100% legitimate and does not originate from drug money laundering, or terrorism fund or any other illegal act.
On your interest, let us hear from you by responding to this email via my private email address as follows:
Thanking you for accepting to do this with us, whilst I remain!
