Compliment of the season
Thanks for your response to my proposed financial transaction for the claim of my late client Albert H Young
fund valued 12.7 Million British Pounds sterling's only that was deposited with one of the banks here in London, UK ; he was a business Merchant in oil and gas as well as major exporter /distributor of various finished product from companies all over the world ;unfortunately he passed away so many years ago (15 Years)leaving a vacuum to be filled, his only son who was meant to be his only heir passed away with his in an air crash . Having divorced his wife. Unfortunately, none of his family relations knew that such a fund exists.
Considering that i was my late client financial adviser, I was mandated by his bank to appoint/nominate someone that would receive the fund or have it confiscated because the fund has been dormant for so many years unclaimed. It was in this scenario that i contacted you to collaborate with me to retrieve the fund and share is as mentioned rather than his bank/UK government confiscating the fund by invoking abandoned property degree of 1936 in accordance with the law of United Kingdom. Believing in your potential to handle this deal by possessing the criteria to be legally presented to his bank as the rightful heir to receive his estate fund
I hereby assure you that this transaction is 100% risk-free and will be conducted in a legitimate manner without any financial misconduct. I should respect your trust on me as the financial adviser to the late client.
Been a British citizen of high repute, i cannot engage in any shady deal that will bring shame and disrepute to my family; The most important thing is trusting one another by removing any negativity such as cheating and deceit
I hereby reiterate that the fund will be shared in the following ratio; You will be entitled to 50 % ; 40% for me while 10% will take care all expenses in the process of the fund transfer
Kindly contact me immediately by furnishing me with your complete Information
1) Your Mobile phone number
2) The nature of your job/position
3) Your Marital status
4) Your Age
5) Your postal address
On receipt of your response, I will send you the documents (Evidence)pertaining to the deposit of the fund and engage the service of an attorney to carry out the legal documentation that will compel the bank to recognize you as the next of kin and release the fund to you.
Attached is a copy of my id which stands as a security

On the receipt of your message reaffirming your interest and commitment to collaborate with me to actualize this deal, i swung into action by contacting an attorney by the name barrister Edward Walter; After much-protracted deliberation with the attorney, he requested a down payment of 2500 GBP and i gladly paid him from my pocket, If this transaction is not certain, i will not waste my time and investing my hard earned pension savings money in this project to engage his services .
The attorney has promised to get the legal documents ready within 2 to 3 working days which would be processed at the British court in your favor as the true heir to the deceased.
As soon as the attorney is done with the legal documents and submits it ; copies will be emailed to you while the hard copies with your contact information would be dispatch to late Mr Albert H Young bank to enable his bank to communicate with you directly for the release/transfer of the fund into your account yet to be nominated therein the bank will be requesting for your bank information.
On transferring the fund into your account, i will come over to your country to share the joy of a successful deal; this will be an opportunity for familiarization and to discuss investment opportunities in your country
