I hope you give due consideration to this letter before you discard it as a hoax.
My name is Mr. Greg Smith, Account Officer/Personal Banker with one of the banks in United Kingdom On 8 November 2001, a diplomat from Africa made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit, valued at for twelve calendar months in my Bank branch. Upon maturity, routine notifications were sent to his forwarding address with no reply. This was repeated a month later as a reminder, finally I discovered that the diplomat was General Robert Guei, and was killed together with all his family members in a political uprising in his country on September 19th 2002,
On further investigation, I discovered that the General did not declare any next of kin or relation in all his official documents at time the deposit was
made at the bank. The total sum is ?8.7M British Pounds, and to this day no one has ever come forward to claim it.
Recently, we received a circular from The Commission for Unclaimed Assets requesting the return of all unclaimed funds to them. This is in accordance with the Federal banking Laws and constitution, and the money will be reverted to the ownership of the Government if nobody applies as the next of Kin to claim
the funds (http://observer.guardian.co.uk/business/story/0,,2030931,00.html).
I shall present you as a foreigner to stand in as the business partner to late General nominated by him as his next of kin, upon acceptance of this proposal; I shall give you details information on how this deal would be carried out. We shall employ the services of a solicitor for the drafting of
the letter of probate in your favour, and to obtain all other relevant papers in your name for the necessary documentation for payment approval in my bank.
The money will be shared in the ratio of: sixty-five percent for me, thirty percent for you and five percent for any arising contingencies during the course of this transaction.I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, as I will use my position in the bank to facilitate the approvals and guarantee the successful execution of this transaction. Please be informed that your utmost
confidentiality is required. If this interests you, please reply me immediately, and please include your private telephone number for voice contact and fax
number and e-mail address so I can provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.
