The sum of (twelve million Five Hundren Thousand Pounds),has been floating as unclaimed since 2000 in my bank as all efforts to get across to the relatives of our client who deposited the money yielded no result.All attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless.My position here at my office requiries me to investigate and I therefore made further investigations and discovered that Mr. Andreas Schranner did not declare any next of kin or relation in all his official documents,including his bank deposit paperwork in my bank. I have decided to seek your assistance to have you stand as his next of kin so that the said fund (twelve million Five Hundred Thousand Pounds),be released in your name as the next of kin and paid into your account.All documents and proof that will have you claim! this fund without stress will be forwarded to you upon your response to this mail i have unanimously agreed to offer you (four million pounds) of the total sum for the assistance and role you are going to play in this transaction,(two million pounds) will be given to charity organizations in your country with your supervision.
