Dear Sir, I have written an earlier mail to you but no response. In my first mail I mentioned to you about my late client who died without a will of interstate but has some funds left with a renowned bank here in UK before he died in April 2003. He bears the same surname with you. Since his death I have received several letters from the Bank and UK Unclaimed Assets where he deposited the fund before his death, to provide his next of kin or any of his relatives who can make claim to the funds before the end of the year or Bank will be left with no option than to confiscate the consignment and turn the money back to the state, as it has been marked unclaimed for years. I have conducted my personal search to see if I can make contact with any of his relatives but without success, it is in the course of my effort that I have to contact you. I have closely checked and since you bear the same surname with my deceased client it will be better to present you as the next of kin and the right beneficiary of the funds in the account. The total sum left in the account is $15M (Fifteen Million United States Dollars) I will provide you with all the necessary legal backing that is required until this money is paid out to you, and then we shall share it base on our agreement. Do respond quick if you are interested or should you need further clarification because we have no much time left. Regards, Richard Coleman London United-Kingdom
