Hello Due to the financial melt down, I have decided to propose to you in a new partnership worth five million dollars, which will immensely benefit both of us. As a financial adviser to a finance institution, I have sat on an unclaimed funds for over 9 years, and I have done all the research but there is no beneficiary or next of kin to the funds, as the rightful beneficiary passed away. Your part would be to receive the funds as the beneficiary while i work out you through the procedure. I have also spoken to a lawyer who can get this done for us legally. If you are interested, you will keep 30% of the five million while 70% is mine. Please reply this mail stating your full name, age, country and phone details if you are interested. Many thanks in advance, as I look forward to our partnership and secrecy. Regards Thomas Cole
