Dear Friend, Compliment of the season to you and do sincerely hope you are fine. My name is Mr. Derrick George Telling, an Accounting Consultant and also an Account Manager with one of the respected and notable banks in the UK. I hope my e-mail meets you well as we have actually been searching for any possible link or semblance with an individual that shares the same last name as one of our late private clients. As the Accounting Administrative Manager of the CHELSEA PRIVATE BANK with the combination of Royal Bank of Scotland and National Westminister Bank here in the United Kingdom, During the yearly preliminary in-house auditing of accounts, I discovered that a US$ domiciliary check-in account opened in October 1998 has been dormant since the January 2001. The total amount in this account is US$16Million Dollars cash call time deposit without accrued interests. Working together with the audit manager, we decided to investigate this account for more information. We discovered that the owner of this account, a foreigner & contractor with the Transport Department, who shares the same last name as you, died in the year 2002,leaving no heirs or next of kin whatsoever. Presently, we are only two people in our organization with access to this information and we have decided to keep it that way and claim the money for ourselves using a third party who we will present as the next of kin to the deceased. We will supply the necessary information on the deceased and ensure that the claim application is given immediate approval. Documents like the death certificate and the Next-Of-Kin Bio data form will be arranged by us and forwarded to you for onward submission to the bank in order for you to officially file for these funds under the auspices of an inheritance claim. The project is risk-free, as we will use contacts that hold strategic positions in the bank to effect a successful completion of the project and also ensure that all traces of our mutual involvement are completely wiped off. This presents no problem, as all documented evidence will be under my supervision directed. It is important we claim these funds for ourselves immediately since such kind of time deposits automatically reverts to the British Government in the 5th year of dormancy, as stipulated by the Financial Act of 1987. Reply to my private mail box for further clarification this affair using:firstname.lastname@example.org We have earmarked a commission of 30% of the total amount for you, 5% will be set aside to cover expenses on both sides, and 65% for us. Should you be interested in this transaction, please furnish us with 1) Full Names, 2) Date of Birth, 3) Residential Address, 4) Telephone and Fax Numbers. I will sure be contacting you soon enough. Regards, Derrick George Telling.
