Dear friend, Greetings to you, I am contacting you for your assistance to resolve and transfer into your account the total sum $10.5 Million Dollars.in the respect of my late client. This my late client passed on in a fatal accident and I cannot get in touch with any of his relatives because he did not put down any WILL and he came to this country when he was a little child. I am compelled to do this because I would not want the bank to push my clientâs funds into the bank treasury as unclaimed inheritance and the amount involved is in a tune of US$10.5 million. He died without any registered next of kin and as such, the funds now have an open beneficiary mandate.so it will be very easy to make you become his official next of kin. If you are interested, do let me know so that I can give you comprehensive details on what we are to do. My private email is ( firstname.lastname@example.org) Yours faithfully, Mr Akoum Alem.
