Attention:

The sum of £32 million (Thirty Two Million British Pounds Sterling) was fixed in my Bank for a period of 10 years at an interest rate of 13.88% annually. The aforementioned T R A N S A C T I O N is directly undermy Portfolio for management and administration. In addition, thematurity date of the fixed deposit is long overdue and whereas the beneficiary was unable to show up for claiming or roll over. All efforts to trace and locate the beneficiary for the past 2 years through his disclosed local and foreign contact addresses proves abortive. There is no Next of Kin attached to the account profile and therefore making it possible for anybody to stand as Next of Kin irrespective of your Country of Origin.

On this note, I hereby solicit your assistance and cooperation by partnering with me to claim the aforesaid fund with a sharing ratio of 50/50. There is no legal implication associated with this transaction

for all processes and dealings will be done within the ambit of the law.

If you are interested, please contact me for more details.

Sincerely,

Brian Edward
