Dear Sir,
In our search for a Trustworthy individual to work with us on a very important and confidential project, we came across your esteemed  profile through our Chambers of Commerce and Industries. Thereafter, myself and my colleague decided reaching you via this medium for quicker and safest delivery to you.
My name is Mr. Drexler Norbert, Principal Executive Officer, Audit Department,Barclays Bank Of The United Kingdom. During the yearly preliminary in-house auditing of accounts, I discovered an account opened in 1995 and since 2000 has remained dormant which means that nobody has been operating it up till date. The total amount in this account is 5.5 Million less accrued interest.
Working together with the audit manager, we decided to investigate this account for more information. We discovered that the owner of this account, a foreigner has died inter-state leaving no heirs or next of kin who could make a claim.
Presently, we are the only two people in our organization with access to this information and we have decided to keep it that way and claim the money for ourselves using a third party who will take the place of the deceased (next of kin). We will supply the necessary information on the deceased and ensure that the claim application is giving immediate approval. Documents like the death certificate will be arranged and forwarded to you for onward submission to the bank.
The project is risk-free as we will use contacts that hold strategic positions in the bank to effect a successful completion of the project and also ensure that all traces of our mutual involvement are completely wiped off. These presents no problem as all documented evidence will be directly under their supervision.
We have earmarked a commission of 25% of the total amount for you. A further 5% will be set aside to cover expenses on both sides, which will include expenses incurred in processing this claim. The remaining 70% you will help us invest in a profitable stocks and shares in your country. We would like to get your decision to this proposal as soon as possible. On receipt of your decision, we will fax you or email you explicit details of the already completed groundwork on this project.
You can contact me at all times on this email account below for more explanation.
Best Regards,
Mr. Drexler Norbert.
