I humbly crave your indulgence in sending you this mail, if the contents do not meet with your personal and business ethics, I apologize in advance. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly “CONFIDENTIAL”. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day.
I have decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction, as I have been reliably informed of your discreteness and ability in transaction of this nature. Let me start first by introducing myself properly to you.
I am Mr. Paul Freeman, of Dept of Bill and Exchange with Barclays Bank in the United Kingdom . I need your consent to handle this transaction because it entails a large amount of funds ($6.4 Million Dollars) deposited by a deceased customer in our bank who died long time ago but has an open beneficiary mandate on his file though, there has not been anyone from his family to make claim of this funds but I am sure he has no immediate family because I have tried all I could to contact them to no avail.
I wish to know if we can work together. I would like you to stand as next of kin to my deceased client, who was among the people that lost their life in Egypt air crash 1999, some years ago with the wife.
He made some deposits to my bank, and died without any registered next of kin and as such the funds now have an open beneficiary mandate. More over, it appears you are related to him by the virtue of your names. If you are interested do let me know so that I can give you comprehensive details on what we are to do.
I urgently hope to get your response.
