Dear good friend, I am Barrister Richmond White and a personal Attorney to late Mr. Robert Mellor, a foreigner. I have US$12.7 Million in the dormant account of my late client to transfer to your choice bank account hence NO heir of my late client come forward for the claim since his death, thereafter, we shall share the fund based on the sharing ratio you and I may agree upon. Though! I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but there's no kind of risk or embarrassment involved in this, as everything has been placed under control by me. All I requires from you is your permission to present you to the bank as the next of kin to my late client and also your honest co-operations and maximum support so that the bank will process the payment to you. Also this must remain confidential between both of us, and this will also open a financial breakthrough for both of us at this season. Reply as quickly as possible for immediate proceeds to my direct email: firstname.lastname@example.org Yours sincerely, Barrister. Richmond White.
