Greetings to You,
Thank you for giving me your time. Please be patient and read my email. I am a staff of NatWest Bank London Ltd, UK, attached to the private Banking Services.
I am contacting you concerning a customer and an investment placed under our bank's management about 5 years ago. In 2006, the subject matter; Ref: Jp/mch/bank/107 came to our bank to engage in Private Banking services, I was the officer assigned to his Account. We met on several occasions prior to any investments being placed. I encouraged him to consider various growth funds with prime ratings.
Based on my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point at over 1.2 million United States Dollars, this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments. In compliance to the instructions to liquidate the funds after 4 years in order for him to make some Investment requiring cash payments in Europe and America, I made numerous attempt to contact him after 3 years in order to get further instructions from him. My effort to locate him was futile, so I immediately passed the task of locating him to the internal investigations department of our bank.
A person who matched his description was declared dead of heart attack in Cannes, South France. We were able to identify the body and cause of death was confirmed.
The bank immediately launched a search to locate possible surviving next of kin to alert them about the situation and also to come forward to claim his estate.
There is US$5,000,000.00 deposited, I am privy to the deposit details and this will be released to no one unless I instruct my Bank to do so. I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet to locate any member of his family but to no avail hence I contacted you. I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased as he no next of kin.
This is to enable us salvage the proceeds of his account and get it paid to you instead. I have this obsession that if the directors of my bank confiscate the money and enrich their pockets, it might not be put into proper and useful ventures to benefit the poor masses of this world. I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct my Bank to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation. If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process and guide you towards a successful conclusion.
I await your quick response.
