Dear Meagan Johnston,
I am Dr Gertjan W Vlieghe, Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) Bank of England, You can check my profile on Wikipedia and my biodata on the bank website where I work  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gertjan_Vlieghe
Thank you for your prompt response, and your interest in this business transaction in response to my previous email to you and as much as this issue on my hands now, it became necessary for me to seek your foreign assistance in handling this business project/proposal.
When i was a bond strategist and director at Deutsche Bank my Late Client: Engineer Laurent Johnston Came to our bank to engage in a business discussion with me, He has a financial portfolio of Seventy Eight Million Three Hundred Thousand Pounds.
I made numerous suggestions and spun the money into traditional stock and bonds with bank of England because of the high interest rates in line with my duties as the Chief Operations officer of the private banking sector.
Note that Engineer Laurent Johnston, Was an Orphan from Belgium. May his soul rest in perfect peace, He was my close friend, like a brother to me, I was his account officer and financial adviser.
In January-2016, he asked that the money be liquidated because he acquired a big landed property in Sicily Italy. He wants to build a foundation to help Immigrants and orphans.
He directed that I liquidate the funds and deposit it with a security firm in Reserve Bank And Security Company. I informed him that HSBC would have to make special arrangements to have this done and in order not to circumvent due process, the bank would have to make a 5 % deduction from the funds to cater for banking and statutory charges.
I explained to him the complexities of the task he was asking of us. Cash movement across borders has become especially strict since the increase of terrorist attack in Europe. I contacted my affiliate in London and made the funds available to the security firm.
I undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise instructions I deposited the money myself to Reserve based security consultancy firm, (Reserve Bank And Security Company). This is a specialist private firm that accepts deposits from high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations that handle valuable products or undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash.
I received a call from him on March 15th 2016, before he's sudden demise, he told me he wanted me to come over with a copy of the Certificate of deposit of the fund and for financial counseling regarding the foundation and that he wanted the money there in anticipation of his arrival from BRUNEI later that week. This was the last communication. It was sad that my late Client. Eng Laurent Johnston Was one of the victims killed in Belgium Terror attack at Brussels Airport 22 March 2016.
I got a call from Reserve Bank and Security Company informing me of the activity of that particular portfolio that I deposit myself and in line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away, we instituted our own investigations in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate.
If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes, in his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin.
My late Client died with no or identifiable family member which leaves me as the only person with the full picture of what the prevailing situation is in relation to the deposit and the late beneficiary of the deposit.
According to practice, Reserve Bank And Security Company has announce the statement of claim to my office, failing to provide next of kin they will revert the deposit back to government treasuring account as unclaimed funds.
This will result in the money entering the government treasuring accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private Reserve Bank And Security Company division.
This will not happen if I have my way out, My late client was like a brother to me if he were to be alive we would have prefer this money come to my own personal use than for the money to go to government treasuring account.
You share similar details to the late fellow, I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct Reserve Bank and Security Company to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half. That is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. We share the proceeds 50/50.I would have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in claiming the deposit. I assure you that I will have the Inheritance fund deposit released to you within a few days.
I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank there is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents and please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.
I will do everything legally required, to ensure that this business project deal goes smoothly, ensuring it shall pass through all the Legal Laws of International banking.
Please follow these instructions religiously and again, note I am a family man with a wife and very lovely children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences so if my proposal do not appeal to you please discard and act like we never had this conversation
If you are  willing to continue with this project do contact me through this email and I will furnish you with further instructions on how to conclude this transaction in few days.
Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated

I am satisfied that I found a perfect match that is legally eligible to file for the claims as the next of kin, I want you to take this transaction religiously as I have done from my end and trust me we will be done and will become richer in the earliest possible time.
I need you to send me your full names, contact address, phone numbers and a photo of your identity, once I have the information I will forward it to the Lawyer that is on standby to commence the procurement process of the documents that gives you the indisputable legal rights to lay claims to the said funds as the only surviving relative to my late client Late Engineer Laurent Ali. The three documents; Last will and Testament, Sworn affidavit and Certificate of deposit will enable you contact the paying bank where you will have the fund transferred to you upon the completion of the verification process by all departments involved.
The Lawyer's charge is £44,650.00 which I am going to personally take care of from my end but cannot be done without you sending me the information that I requested for. My dear friend and partner please I would like to reiterate once more that this deal must be taken with full commitment and and seriousness because the funds will be in our possession in just a matter of days once the documents are released to you.
Awaiting your response.

Dear Meagan Johnston,
Thank you for the response, Firstly, I want to correct the perception of thinking within a narrow premise. As a Financial Expert, my early training is never to lack business ideas and always be ready when opportunity comes knocking giving you a golden lifetime chance to lay them out. That statement is in response to the question you asked "What will the funds be used for?" What do you think about both of us investing together once the fund is released to you?
Your "Surname" has given us fortune all we need to do is lay claims, it is right there in the vault waiting to be claimed or automatic diversion to to the Government treasury. I work in the Bank and trust me it is not new at all.
The Lawyer is on standby to commence the facilitation of the procurement of the documents which will give you the indisputable rights as the Next of Kin and beneficiary to the inheritance funds funds left behind by Late Laurent Johnston.
Do send Your Full names, Contact address, Phone numbers and photo of your ID so I can forward to the Lawyer and ask him to commence immediatly.

Dear Meagan Johnston,
Pardon my late response, I really got busy in the past two days, The fund was deposited by me in January 16th 2016 before death suddenly took Laurent Johnston away without leaving behind a next of kin or any surviving relative on records. All that is required to file for the the inheritance fund is the necessary documents that bestows on you the right to do so.
As soon as the documents are released, copies will be sent to the Bank and to you as well, all required verification will be carried out staarting from my office here and thereon you will be required to open communications with the bank applying officially as the only surviving relative and next of kin.
The bank will require you to set up an offshore online account which the funds will be transferred into, from that point you can start transferring to any accounts and bank of your choice.
Like I mentioned in my previous emails that the documents requires your personal information to be processed, as soon as I receive the information I will make sure the Lawyer commences the procurement with no delays.
Do get back to me as soon as possible.

Dear Meagan,
The only challenge I worry about is that you should not in anyway be an enemy of the United Kingdom and United States of America or must have financed any terrorist act directly or indirectly because it will be detected in the course of verification due to the amount of funds involved in the project.
