ATTENTION Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics. I will introduce myself as Mr Philip Ken, a staff in the accounts management section with one of the prime Banks here in the United Kingdom One of our accounts with holding balance of Ј30,000,000 (Thirty Million British Pounds) have been dormant and have not been operated for the past four (4) years. From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account, a foreigner by Name Christian Eich died in July, 2000 see this: <http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm> and since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money because he has no family members who are aware of the existence of neither the account nor the funds. I have secretly discussed this matter with a senior official of this company and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. We thus propose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of these funds from the deceased and funds released to you after due processes have been followed. This transaction is totally free of risk and as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundering, terrorism or any other illegal act. On receipt of your response I will furnish you with detailed clarification as it relates to this mutual benefit transaction. I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible if you are interested provide your phone number for more details. Mr Philip Ken.
