Mr edward , a staff in the accounts management section with one of the
prime Banks here in the United Kingdom One of our accounts with
holding balance of (Ten Million Dollars) have been dormant and have not been operated for
the past four (5) years. From my investigations and confirmations, the
owner of this account, a foreigner by Name Christian Eich died in
July, 2000 see this:
and since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming
of this money because he has no family members who are aware of the
existence of neither the account nor the funds. I have secretly
discussed this matter with a senior official of this company and we
have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. We thus
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.you will take twenty percent ot the money.
it is risk free project,i will go to database change all the beneficiary on
