Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics. I would like to introduce myself, I am David Lambert and I work with the staff in the accounts management section of a well-known bank here in the United Kingdom.
One of our accounts is holding a balance of ??48,375,000 (Forty Eight million, Three Hundred and Seventy Five Great British Pounds) and has been dormant for some years now.
From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account died on the 16th of February 1999 in an autocrash in Birmingham, here in the UK.
Since then no one has responded in anyway with regards to claiming the funds. As far as we can tell he has no family member that is aware of the existence of either the account or the funds. Information from the National Immigration Office also states that he was single on entry into the UK.
I have confidentially discussed this issue with some of the bank officials and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with us. We thus propose to do business with you, standing in as the next-of-kin. We will process these funds from the deceased and release them to you, after due processes have been followed.
This transaction is totally risk free as the funds is legitimate and devoid of any illegal/illicit activity. Please think this over and should you be interested, do let me hear from you ASAP.
