Imperial Finance Limited, UK

I am Mr. Mike Graham, the Auditor General, Imperial Finance Limited UK . In
the course of my auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account, which
was opened in 1990 belonging to a dead foreigner Late Mr. K. P., who died in
1999. Every effort made to track any member of his family or next of kin has
since failed; hence I got in contact with you to stand as his next of kin
since you bear the same last name. He died leaving no heir or a will.
My intention is to transfer this sum of $15.5M in the aforementioned account
to a safe account overseas. I am therefore proposing that you quietly partner
with me and provide an account or set up a new one that will serve the purpose
of receiving this fund. For your assistance in this venture, I am ready to
part with a good percentage of the entire funds. After going through the
deceased person's records and files, I discovered that:
(1) No one has operated this account since 1999
(2) He died without an heir; hence the money has been floating.
(3) No other person knows about this account and there was no known beneficiary.
If I do not remit this money urgently, it would be forfeited and subsequently
converted to company's funds, which will benefit only the directors of my
firm. This money can be approved to you legally as with all the necessary
documentary approvals in your name. However, you would be required to show
some proof of claim, which I will provide you with and also guide you on how
to make your applications.
Please do give me a reply so that I can send you detailed information on the
modalities of my proposition. I completely trust you to keep this proposition
absolutely confidential. Kindly forward your telephone number where I can
reach you easily. I look forward to your prompt response.
Best Regards,
Mr. Mike Graham
