Kindly accept my sincere apologies for my mode of contacting you out of the blues like this but something very urgent and important has come to our notice and we believe it is important we seek your consent for the mutual interest of all.
I am Mike Appleton, Corporate Director at Maplecolt Holdings Limited; a Financial & Security Institute in London and personal funds manager to my late client.
I am contacting you based on a financial opportunity I discovered here in our Institute. It's about an abandoned sum of GB£38,886.000.00 (Thirty Eight Million Eight Hundred and Eighty-Six Thousand Pounds Sterling) in our safety deposit vault that belongs to one of our foreign customers, a citizen of your country that shares the same last name with you. He died recently along with his wife and only son while holidaying in Porto Portugal and was flown back to England for burial.
The banking policy can only allow the release of such funds to a benefactor through an application as next of kin to the deceased. During our investigations we discovered he nominated his son as his next of kin. All efforts to trace his other relations have proved impossible. The Embassy UK couldn't trace any of the deceased relations. The account has been dormant for a long time since his death. Therefore we decided to contact you, to seek your consent to enable us nominate you as the next of kin to the deceased and transfer the funds to you as the designated next of kin to the deceased.
With the consent of our late client's solicitors, they shall confirm you as the next of kin; sole beneficiary to the deposit/funds to authorise funds transfer to you. After transfer of funds to your favor, you shall retain 60%, and 38% ours, 2% set aside for expenses both parties might incur (if any) during or after the transaction.
We have all the relevant details about the deceased, which shall enable us claim the fund successfully. Your positive response will be highly appreciated to enable us favour you with a draft application/account details of the deceased for submission to the Financial Institution in order to authenticate the claim to the deceased's estate.
Please remember to always keep this information Confidential and do not discuss it with anybody. I GUARANTEE that this process would be executed under a legitimate arrangement that would legally protect you from any breach of law.
Should this business transaction be of interest to you and you would like to request a copy of draft application to proceed, please contact me via Email firstname.lastname@example.org Or
Direct Tel No: +44 7564 501 428
Please also contact me if you object to this proposal.
Thanks and remain blessed.
