GOT SAME SCAM....I WROTE HIM AND GOT THIS:
I 'm Peter Stevens, working in a financial institution in the U.K. We have a late client - Jeremy who bears your last name. He died intestate and we have been unsuccessful in reaching any of his relatives all these years. His financial investment in my bank is in the tune of 10.5 million USD. My bank is on the verge of declaring these funds unclaimable. Subsequently, it will be turned over to the government treasury. I personally do not want this to happen. This prompted my last attempt to search( through the verizon phone directory database) for any one with our client's last name to partner with me to have the inheritance released. With my position in the bank, we should achieve this successfully.
May I humbly ask for your cooperation to work with me to have the funds filed for and released in your name. I propose a 50/50 split of this inheritance. This way, the government doesn't have it and we can both benefit from this fortune.
Please let me know your thoughts on this partnership. Thereafter, I will share more.
I RESPONDED WITH THIS AND AM STILL WAITING:
Peter, It seems odd that numerous co-workers have received your same text message on their phones, and we all have different names. What is the name of this person, so I can let all 46 other people know. Please explain...OK
