Dear Sir/Madam,

I wanted to connect with you because i found your name in the family
genealogy directory of late engineer Valnizie Scotty, a civil engineer and
a client of my bank. Your name appear just behind this late clients' own
name in the family directory and after some verification, it appears to me
that both of you are related. …. Am not sure if you are aware of him. In
any case, I will wishes to inform you that you can stand to inherit the
deceased death insurance benefits and deposit of $ 25 million dollars in
my bank as his only known available family member as no one has ever
come up to claim it long after his death in 2009. Lets talk and discuss on
this for better explanation. The Funds will be moved to any of our correspondent
Banks in YOUR NAME" immediately to secure the funds first. The Principal
will be shared on a 60/40 basis.
Send me your name, address and phone numbers.
Kind regards

Akon Desire
