Dear Partner, This is my third time of sending you an e-mail without any reply, I told you about a deal on an investment account total 10.5million USD of late Mr. Alfred who shares the same last name with you. My proposal to you is that since I have exclusive access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these funds. On verification, which will be the details I make available to Bank holding funds, my company through our lawyer will instruct the bank to make payments to you. You do not have to have known him. I know this sounds a bit heavy and complex but believe and trust me as it is achievable. For your assistance, I propose we split the funds in half and share it equally. This practice is not unusual in the banking sector here in the UK. The other option is that the funds will revert back to the state, where it may be shared by State officials. Nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private investment clients, We should act swiftly on this if you are in agreement and please get back to me immediately, I am contacting you independently and no one is informed of this communication. Please do keep this confidential, I await your prompt response. email: email@example.com Best Regards, Robert J. Collins
