Re Greetings From London

From: bishop thompson -

Bishops Thompson & Co.London WC2A 3LHU.K. A DEPOSIT BOX HAS BEEN TRACED TO YOUR NAME I work for BT & Co., a U.K. law firm that arranges asset management and storage of special valuables for reputable clients.We have information concerning of the availability of a deposit box with a Vaults Storage Company which has been listed in your name. A benefactor made you the beneficiary of the deposit box which contains US15,000,000.00. The lease on the Safe deposit box has expired and no further rental payments or claims have since been made since dormancy. Financial assets are considered unclaimed when contact with an owner or beneficiary is lost for an extended period and the lease expired without further rental payments or claims. This often happens due to a name change after marriage or divorce, an unreported change of address or expired postal forwarding order ,incomplete, illegible records and result of computer and clerical errors. When owners or their heirs fail to claim an asset over a specified number of years known as the dormancy period, those left holding the money: banks, stock brokers, utilities, employers, life insurance companies and others - transfer custody to a special trust account in a process known as escheat. The funds contained in the deposit box is from asset owners whose property was confiscated between 1939 and 1945 by the U.K. Custodian for Enemy Property pursuant to wartime Trading with the Enemy legislation. Affected by seizures were companies and citizens of "belligerent enemies" - countries who had declared war on the U.K. (Germany, Hungary, Romania & Bulgaria); as well as "technical enemies," occupied nations like Czechoslovakia and Poland. In response to an admission that documentation had been destroyed, the British government has established a Payment Scheme to compensate victims or their heirs. We can provide legal assistance and claims administration through the Treasury Solicitor, Department of the Probate Registry for transfer of ownership of the safe deposit box to you as the sole and legal beneficiary. After which we will arrange the release of the safe deposit box to you.More Information will be provided concerning the deposit box when you get back to us. Thank you and I remain Paul BishopsAssociate SolicitorBT & Co.London WC2A 3LHUnited Kingdom
