Greeting! Complement of the season!! My Name is Derek Alexandra, the Regional Manager of UBS Investment Bank in London and would like to strike a business deal with you prior to your approval and consideration. There was a Non Resident Account opened in my Branch and for the past 6 years, this account was dormant without operation and at the same time nobody has come to claim the account with its closing balance of £35.7million.This has made be to trace the source and origin of the funds and the beneficiary starting since the year 2005 and today I have gathered every report confirming that the Beneficiary was a Top Government Official in his country and now have passed away six years ago leaving no legal inheritance instructions on the account. The families have no idea that such funds exist because the account was opened with a different name in order to maintain the privacy of the account in question. On this note, this account will be converted into the bank treasury by the end of first quarter of the year if no one has come for the claiming of the funds.Therefore,I come to you to know if you will endorse this offer so that I will present you as the Next of Kin to claim the funds while official documents will be prepared to support our claims. This is a straight forward deal without any risk attached. Our sharing ratio will be 50:50 should incase if you are interested. Please forward me your direct telephone numbers for discussion of this offer in further details or call me on +44 703 1956 130. Yours Sincerely, Derek Alexandra +44 703 1956 130 Email:email@example.com
