My name is William Baker, I am contacting you in respect of a dormant account which amounts to One million,Eight Hundred Thousand Pounds belonging to my late client. I was given an ultimatum from the Bank to provide a member of his family and all efforts to locate any has been unsuccessful. This bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin, or the account will be confiscated. However i came across your contact details while searching for a relative of my late client to be presented as his next of kin. I have been able to device a legitimate and legal way of presenting a foreigner as his next of kin. I want to present you as a surviving family member to enable you file for claim to the funds. Once the funds is remitted to you we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage. All legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin will be provided. All i require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through. Please indicate your interest for more information by responding to my email. I await your response. Thanks, William Baker
