Hello, I have a very confidential business transaction for you of which will be of benefit to both you and me, being the financial consultant and auditor of Kym Financial Services Ltd UK, In the course of my auditing job, I discovered a floating Sixteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only (US$16,500,000.00) an investment assets portfolio certificate belonging to a foreign client but he as been late since 2007. Every effort that has been made to track any member of his family or next of kin has failed, hence I want to present you as his next of kin because He died leaving no next of kin in his investment portfolio. My intention is to appoint you as the beneficiary to his investment portfolio,to the sum of US$16,500,000.00. financial inheritance bond floating in the bank. I am therefore proposing that you partner with me so that these funds can be released to you through the financial insitution where it was lodged on Private Placement High Yield Investment Mortgage Asset. For your assistance in this transaction, I am ready to part with 40% of the entire funds as your share. After going through his records and files, I discovered that: (1) He died without any heir, hence the assets has been floating. (2) No other person knows about these files and there was no known beneficiary or next of kin.If the assets are not claimed urgently, it would be forfeited and subsequently converted to company's assets which will benefit only the directors of my firm. These inheritance funds can be released to you legally when all the necessary documentary approvals are secured in your name. You would be required to show some proof as the next of kin of which I will provide to you with and guide you on how to make your application of claims of the assets to my company. Please reply by forwarding to me your private telephone and fax numbers to my email address:(firstname.lastname@example.org) so that I can send you detailed information on the modalities of my proposition as it is 100% guaranteed. I look forward to your prompt response and thanks for Your Total Understanding Co-operation. Best Regards, Mr. Brian Blake FINANCIAL CONSULTANT & CORDINATOR.
