Dear friend, How are you doing today? I am a senior staff of Smith & Williamson Private Bank United Kingdom, and a member of the vetting and probing panel on inheritance. I contacted you in search of a partner who can assist me in recieving funds as a next of kin to a deceased client of my bank. I have studied this funds for over a year now which is in the tune of Thirty million united states dollars, and i need a honest and trustworthy partner who can handle the release of the inheritance. The deceased client from all indication and investigations conducted by the bank showed that the deceased client did not provide a next of kin. This venture is risk free and will be completed in 14 working days. I am willing to use my position here at the bank to the maximum to ensure the release of this inheritance.Also i will provide the necessary logistics to give us a legal backing and i am offering a share of 50% of the inheritance if you assist in securing the release of the funds. Kindly provide me with your full names, private telephone and fax numbers so i can furnish you with the necessary detail towards the actualisation of this venture for us both. I will also advise that you keep this personal as possible. I await your positve response. Augustine Howard
