Dear Friend, How are you together with your family? I think all is well. Considering the fact, I did not know you in person or even have seen you before but due to the true revelation that I should share this lucrative opportunity with you, I have no choice other than to contact you. So, kindly consider this message essential and confidential. First and foremost, I have to introduce myself to you. I am Andy Hornby, the Foreign Operations Manager of our bank here in Uk London . I am married with four children. I am seeking for your consent in other to assist me transfer the sum of Ten Million, Six hundred thousand Great britains pounds (Ј10,600,000.00) into your reliable account as the Next of Kin or Foreign Business partner to the original beneficiary of the fund. The beneficiary is a foreigner and a multi company holder who died in a jet crash with his family years ago; he deposited the fund in our bank for his business expansion . Unfortunately he met this sudden death. The worst thing that happened was the wife who supposes to be the successor of the account died alongside with him. So, since the deceased left no body behind to make the claim, as a foreigner, you are in good position for that, and bear it in mind that no body will come for the claim after the deal is completed. If you are ready to assist, please open a new bank account or forward to me any one available so that we will commence the process. I will guide you on how you should apply for the claim to make sure that everything works out successfully without any error. After the transfer, I will resign and come over to your country for the sharing of the fund 50/50 base on the fact that it is two man businesses. Finally, note that you are not taking any risk because there is going to be a legal back up as you we commence. Further information will be given to you as soon as I receive your reply.
