Good Day, Please accept my sincere apologizes if my email does not meet your business or personal ethics. I will first introduce myself as Mr. Brinsford, a staff in the Accounts Management Section of a well- known bank, here in London. One of our accounts, with holding balance of Â15,000,000 (Fifteen Million Pounds Sterling) has been dormant and last operated four years ago. From my investigations and confirmation, the owner of the said account, a foreigner by name Paul Wood died on the 4th of January 2002 in a car accident that occurred here in Birmingham, here in UK. Since then, nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money, as he has no family member that has any knowledge as to the existence of either the account or the funds; and also Information from the National Immigration also states that he was single on entry into the UK. I have confidently discussed this issue with some of the bank officials and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. We therefore propose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of these funds from the deceased and funds released to you after due processes have been followed. This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act. On your interest, let me hear from you. Warm Regards, Mr. Brinsford DISCLAIMER: This message contains confidential information and is intended only for specified addressee.
