Hello My Friend, This proposal might come to you as a surprise but believe me that it is transparent business.I am Carlos Ortega,an external auditor in London,England.In the course of our yearly routine audit of investment Portfolio, I discovered that a personal account has been dormant for over two years with a huge balance, Ј6.000.000.00 (Six Million Pounds). The account belongs to a single beneficiary (name witheld for securiry reasons).Further investigations of the said account reveal that the late investor last operated the account in 2007, about the time of his death. He died without a will and also with no next of kin, so there was no beneficiary/nobody coming forward all these years to lay claim to the investment account. The personal investment account in this instance has been dormant for about 2 Years, thus making it a dormant account. I wish to inform you that using our Inside leverage, we (I am working on this with an attorney at this time), Together with yourself can secure the funds in this account for us instead of allowing it sent to the Treasury of the Government of the United Kingdom. All we need is your approval and the lawyer will file for an application for proceeds on your behalf. All necessary legal documents required will be provided. You shall be adequately compensated for your part in this transaction and also helping me invest my share of the funds when the money is in your account. I shall however leave out the other details of this transaction till i receive an affirmation of your desire to participate. I can assure you that we are completely in charge of the transaction and as such there is no risk whatsoever if you decide to work with us. It is however important to say that secrecy is of vital importance if we are to successfully reap the immense benefits of this transaction. I look forward to hearing from you. With warmest personal regards and best wishes, Carlos Ortega
