Compliments of the season to you and your family. Please, kindly be patient and go through this email carefully which I believe is a message that will be useful to both of us. I have a client who bears same last name as yours, who died as the result of Colon cancer on the 8th Nov 2009.
I have come to seek your kind cooperation to work with me in this project for you to stand as the next of kin to my late client's fund before it is confiscated by the bank or the government. My late client deposited the sum of ($4.5M) and this bank has informed me to look for the next of kin, or the account will be appropriated.
I want to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client, since you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Then 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 cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. Do get back to me via my personal e-mail email@example.com, once you are willing to proceed.
This will be performed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Thank you as you read this e-mail and I shall wait to receive your positive response.
