Hello how are you doing? I know my message will come to you as a surprise, I consider it expedient to give you the details of this matter. This transfer is legitimate and in essence it will undergo normal procedures as stipulated in the financial and allied matters act and all legal documents will be issued in your name. I contacted you because I want to present you as my Husband's relatives, so you can lay claims to this huge amount he left behind before his death. The bank issued me a notice to present my Husband relatives to sing out inherited Six Million Five Hundred Thousand Pounds in your Bank account.
You will be entitled to 40% of the total fund at the conclusion of the transfer, while i my two kids will earn 60% and I will come to your country when the funds is transferred to your account to meet you in person for onward investment (industries) and you will take care of the investment since I do not have any idea about lucrative business.
My Late Husband Mr. John Murray was born in 1944. He worked with Shell Petroleum Company as an engineer here in UK and later retired to private practice as a consultant and formed an oil servicing company. He operated joint account with me until his death.
You must understand that in the finance industry, chances or opportunities like this are common but not heard. People put their monies in banks and some of these accounts are either coded or confidentially
operated, therefore, when such people die what do you think that happens to these monies when nobody comes for their claims? Well, this is one of the numerous avenues good "free" monies are made within and amongst the officials. I did not mastermind my Husband's death and I did not operate or manage his account but I was his lovely wife, so I was privy to his transaction with the bank here. I have in my possession the contact of our family attorney.
As soon as you indicate your interest to assist I and my two kids and I will inform my attorney to process all the documentation in your name.
Ms. Alice Murray.
