One of our accounts with a holding balance of $5.4Million USD (United State Dollars) has been dormant and has not been operated for the past three years. As the legal adviser of the bank, the account was referred to my chambers for investigation and tracing the relation of the late Account Holder.
Also Investigation I carried out from the National Immigration Department has revealed that the deceased,was also single on entry into Kingdom of England. I have secretly discussed this matter with one of the bank officials who is the Account Managament officer to the late account holder and we agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to act as the next of kin to the deceased to enable us file all the necessary paperworks for the claim of the money($5.4m) on your behalf. We thus propose to do business with you, when the funds have been released to you. This transaction is totally risk and trouble free as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drugs, money laundering, terrorism or any other illegal act as only we need your consent as to frontline you in pulling out the funds. The sharing of the fund between us, is as follows; 33% of the total sum will go to you for your effort and commitment to the success of this transaction. 62% for me and my the accounting officer,while 5% is set aside to balance each and any of us of any expenses that might be incurred in due process of this transaction. As soon as i receive an acknowledge of the receipt of this message in acceptance, coupled with your Full Names/Address and Private Telephone Number,i will immediately start up with the processing of the document of cliams on your name.
