My name is Mr. Robert Le Blanc, the Operational Manager of Credit Suisse Bank in United Kingdom, I here solicit for your strictly confidence on a good business transaction involving a huge sum of money from a deceased foreign customer Late Dr. Michael Woods; who died along with family in A car accident. He deposited this funds amounting to (Sixteen Million four Hundred and Ten Thousand United States Dollars) for safe keeping in the Bank here in London. Previously our filed record shows that the fund was actually for a project he wanted to start in the near future (a multi million Dollar steel planting in Florida, USA) before his sudden and untimely death.
Since his death none of his relations or next-of-kin has come forward to claims this fund as the heir. So therefore I kindly seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased; because my bank will not release the money unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as Indicated in our operating guidelines. Please I need your urgent co-operation because I do not want this money to go into the Bank Treasury.
The UK banking policy and guideline stipulates that any unclaimed money belonging to a deceased person for the period of 5 years will be transferred into the Banks Treasury as an unclaimed debt.
Consequently, I hope that my decision for contacting you will be given your genuine approval! Though I know that a business of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and curious considering the facts that you do not know me in person but I assure you that it is 100% risk free.
Please kindly reply my email by indicating your interest or wiliness on this deal and bear in mind that at the end of this business I will compensate you with 30% of the total money.this is my private email address firstname.lastname@example.org
