Dear Mr. Stanley Polansky,
I appreciate your email and I want to thank you because your question gives me room to explain in details how we intend to carry out this transaction to the completion of the proccess of retreival from the bank.
I would appreciate you following my instruction if this transaction really interests you. You might think it is just one of those mails you recieve everyday, but the fact remains that it is real, and I advise you to try as much as possible to make sure that you pay attention and place your mindset on the management of the funds as it is already a reality.
Banks these days tend to gain much from so many customers who operate private account with huge cash deposite for years and never comes back for it. they never give informations about such accounts to anyone as they consider it their secret investment, but at the long run, something happens to them and the funds becomes that of the bank after fruitless efforts to search for the owners.
I understand that your name is not among the listed on the webpage, it does not need to be there as you are not the owner of the account. The names that are listed on the webpage are the names of the account owners, some of the accounts have been closed due to the fact that theyr owners have been found and other frozen by the bank due to the fact that their owners are nowhere to be found.
What we intend to do now is to reprofile the funds in your name as the benefitiary of this said account that I have contacted you for. Since we are insiders, we already know the proccess of retreving these funds, all we need to do is to prepear all relevant documents pointing you as the next of kin to the deseased and you will be contacted to provide all documents provided by us.
As soon as this is done, you will be given instructions on what to do to recieved the funds. It is quite a simple proccess. This has been carefully planned out and as far as we are concerned, it is a 100% risk free as we are insiders in with the bank.
If you are interested in this transaction, I need you to provide me with the bellow details so we can expedite action and get the funds transterred immediately.
Info needed:
Your full name...
your address..
Phone numbers...
valid form of idendity...
As soon as I get these informations, I will immediately prepear documents and lodge it into the bank and you will be contacted for furthe rinstructions.
Please do let me hear  from you swiftly.
