My names are Barrister Peters Smith, a UK citizen(a Barrister and a Chartered Accountant) I trained and work as an External Auditor for the "GUARANTY STANDARD FINANCE BANK" (GSFB), UNITED KINGDOM. I am sure this email shall meet you in utmost surprise. I had taken pains to find your email contact through the "World Email Directory". On a routine audit check last month, I discovered a large sum in an investment account that had been dormant for twelve years now.The entire sum totaling 11.3 Million GBP Sterlings (about $19 Million United States Dollars). Now banking regulation/legislation in the UK demands that such funds be tagged as"UNCLAIMED FUNDS"and reverted into the BANK'S TREASURY. As a banker, I see so much cash and funds being reverted to the BANK'S TREASURY. I want you to stand in as the next-of-kin since you are from a foreign country so that this huge amount will come to us instead of being reverted into the BAnK'S TREASURY; By vitue of my legal profession and years of charttered experience, I have legally secured all relevant documents currently in my possession (both legal and Banking) that will facilitate putting you forward as the legal claimant/beneficiary of the funds. I have exclusive access to his file and he has no next-of-kin. whosoever,you are particularly qualified since you are from a foreign country. For my efforts i shall desire 40% of the total 11.3 Million GBP Please reply me on my personal email here: email@example.com for more details and commencement. If you are interested, contact me urgently on my email: firstname.lastname@example.org; or on Phone: +44-70-4573-9682 I will be awaiting your timely reply to proceed.This is a matter of confidentiality.Keep is personal!
