Very Urgent Attention, Please permit me to introduce my self to you, I'm Mr. williams Johnson the International Relation's Manager with barclays bank Plc. I got your email address on the Internet. I hope you read this message carefully and reply me immediately. Although we have not met before, but I suggest that this transaction will bring us together. We have a customer, a foreigner based here in Nigeria, his Name is Mr. Hamilton who based here with his wife and two kids from Atlanta Georgia United State of America, he has been our customer with our bank for the past 4yrs, some time August 2002, Mr. Hamilton and family were on his way to their house, unfortunately he ran into a Trailer load of Groundnut Oil, and all of them died. The Board Of Directors and Management of barclays bank Plc has mandated me to look for Mr. Hamilton Creek relation/relatives or his next of Kin to come and claim Mr. Hamilton’s Fund, but all the effort could not yield any positive result, I have contacted his Embassy and after 3days, his Ambassador told me that Mr. Hamilton Creek has no relation and no next of kin, their Ambassador told me that Mr. Hamilton used his first son as his next of kin, but it is quite unfortunate that Mr. Hamilton Creek died with all his family members The reason why I contacted you is thus, Mr. Hamilton is dead, and his only son whom supposed to inherit his properties and money also died with him. As at this moment, nobody or person[s] is coming to claim this money from our bank. The board of directors and management of our bank has told me that if nobody or person[s] apply for the claim of Mr. Hamilton Fund, the bank will return Mr. Hamilton's Fund into our Federal Reserve account In light of the above I want you to stand/apply as the Relation/relative of Late Mr. Hamilton Creek. I want you to act as the Hamilton's relation, so that you will inherit Mr. Hamilton Creek Money which he deposited with our bank, it might interest you to know that Mr. Hamilton has a Domiciliary Bank Account with our Bank and he has a total sum of US$9.2M Nine Million Two Hundred Dollars, this money is still in his account as unclaimed money. This transaction is very easy and simple, and it is 100% risk free, I'm the Manager for International Relations with Barclays Bank Plc, and the Management and Board of Directors of the Bank are waiting for me to provide to them the Relation or next of Kin to late Mr. Hamilton Creek, of which I told them that I am still searching for the next of kin to the deceased. Finally, if you are interested with this transaction, I will present you to the bank as the only next of kin to late Mr. Hamilton Creek, hence to claim the funds. If this deal suits your interest then contact me so that we can proceed for the transferring of the late Mr. Hamilton outstanding funds into your bank account. Feel free to ask any questions, we will share the funds when transferred into your bank account equal Thanks and have a nice day.
