Greetings, I write to seek your services in a private confidential matter regarding the late John McDonald who died leaving some funds unclaimed in our bank without any beneficiary am aware that you might not be related to him but I want you to stand as the beneficiary and I will fill you in since I have all the details for the transfer proper. This requires a private arrangement. Could you perhaps be able to receive these funds under legal claims then I will fill you in. I am willing to pay a generous management and transfer fees and your participation.30% I will need you in legal capacity to stand as his beneficiary. I have all the details and will fill you in if you are really willing. Your major role would be to open a bank account where the funds will be transferred.All correspondences will be via email, for now. The funds in question are quite large (about $10.02M). I will expect a straight answer from you. Yes or no. If yes, then let's work out the modalities and a brief profile of your person is expected. All further correspondence should be at this mailbox. Closing with anticipation. Bernard Vincent.
