Please accept my sincere apology if my email does not suit your business or personal ethics. I will

One of our accounts, with holding balance of 5000 000,000 (Five Million pounds Sterling) has been 
dormant and last operated for years ago. From my investigations, the owner of the said account, Is

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 eitherthe funds; 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.
My proposition to you, is to seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin and beneficiary of 
this late client, So that the proceeds of this account valued a huge sum shall be paid to you, and 
then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed percentage of 30% for you, while 60% for me and 
others involved, 10% shall be used for miscellaneous expenses while the remainder shall be given to 
a reputable charity home because the money is owned by a deceased person. 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, funds will be released to you after necessary 
processes have been followed. 
Reply for further instructions.
I look forward to your earliest reply 
by email for more details. 
Best regards
