PRIVATE AND URGENT.
I am Mr. Barry Adams and I work for Barclays Bank London United Kingdom, I was the account officer to a deceased account holder who was one of our foreign customers.
While he banked with us, we oversaw his accounts and other official obligations as my office demanded being his accounts officer. Unfortunately, he died together with his entire family in the plane crash of 31st October, 1999 on board the Egyptian Airline 990 alongside other passengers. Since his death, none of his Next-of-Kin or relations has come forward to lay claims to this money as the heir.
We cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the Next-of-Kin to the deceased as indicated according to the law, most likely, if there are any Next-of-Kin, they all get an equal share. If there are (mysteriously) no Next-of-kin (claiming or otherwise), the money goes to the state government.
Having made a very frantic and exhaustive search for any family member that would lay claim to this fund, I decided to take my chance with you. I now seek your permission to have you stand as Next-of-kin to the deceased as I have all documentations including his certified Death Certificate that will facilitate your stand as Next-of-Kin to him as he had a closing balance of £10,000,000.00 (Ten million Great British Pounds Sterling) here in our bank in London. I also have secured from the Probate an Order of Mandamus to locate any member of the deceased family to become beneficiary of these funds.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, please do reply to me as soon as possible so as to enable us commence transaction.
Looking ahead to forging an alliance with you for the successful transfer of these funds into your designated bank account.
Mr. Barry Adams
