Greetings to you.
I must say sorry for interfering into your privacy without seeking for permission. It’s because of the urgency of this matter. My name is Gayle Spurling, I work with the USB bank and Currently A Director of Finance Auditing and Accounting Unit in UBS Bank Switzerland.
I have decided to contact you for a mutual beneficial transaction with 100% risk free. I got your email address from my old school friend from your country on my search for a reputable and reliable person to help me claim the sum of US$55.3 MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS, deposited in my Bank.
In April 2006, Lu Yunpeng, a multimillionaire and president of Henan-based Yunpeng Cultural Development Co Ltd China moved some cash to my bank from Europe.
The fund arrived during the time Lu Yunpeng was been tried for murder in China . As his account officer he instructed that I should put a hold on the fund that was supposed to go to China pending on the outcome of his trial.
In May 2006 he was sentenced to death and the fund remained unclaimed till date. As his account officer I was aware that nobody knows about this fund movement except his cousin who was also sentenced to death with him.
