I decide to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction. I am a banker base in base in London United Kingdom(UK) I discovered an abandoned sum of twenty two million three hundred thousand United States dollars ($ 22, 300, 000m) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family. Since his death, none of his next-of-kin or relations has come forward to lay claims to this money as the heir. We cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.Upon this discovery,i now carrfully moved this fund out of the bank and keep it with a private firm whos name is withheld for n! ow untill we open communication and build a mutual relationship. I am now seeking your permission to have you stand as the beneficiary to the said fund so that you can help me claim it successfully without any problem. It may interest you to note that we have secured from the probate an order of madamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries but to no avail. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of my mutual business endeavour by furnishing me with the following; 1.Your Full Names and Address. 2.Direct Telephone and Fax numbers. These requirements will enable me file a letter of claim to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favor before the claim can be made. I shall be compensating you with 30 % on final conclusion of this project, while the rest shall be for me. Your share stays with you while the rest shall be for me for investment purposes in your country.
