I hope that this mail finds you in good health. I am Mr. Tambo Jacob a
staff of a bank in United Kingdom. One of our accounts, with holding
balance of 38,000 000.00 (Thirty Eight million pounds Sterling) has
been dormant and last operated many years ago. Nobody has done
anything as regards the claiming of this money. This is because the
account owner has no family member or friends that are traceable. I
have tried to locate the relations but without success and that is why
I decided to find a reliable partner to move the money 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 shall be paid to you, and then we can share the amount
on a mutually agreed percentage.

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. The funds will be released to you after
necessary processes have been followed.

I anticipate your cooperation and utmost confidence. Awaiting your
reply stating your willingness.

N/B: send your reply-to < [email protected] >

Best Regards,

Mr. Tambo Jacob
