Bills and Exchange Dept
First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, this is by virtue of it's nature as being utterly confidential and top secret. I am Dr Willie Neddy a staff in the Bills and Exchange Dept of Standard Chartered Bank London in the United Kingdom.
One of our accounts with holding balance of US$14,320,000.00 (Fourteen million three hundred and twenty thousand united states dollars) has been dormant and last operated in in the past 5 years. From my investigations and confirmation, the owner of this account is a foreigner name withheld ,died on 25th July, 2000,Air France Concorde flight 4590 plane crash near Paris in UK.
Since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money as he has no family member who is aware of the existence of either the account nor the Funds. Information from the National Immigration 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. We thus propose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of these funds from the deceased and funds released to you after due processes have been followed.
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.
On your interest, let me hear from you.
Dr Willie Neddy
