So, this funds does not belong to any individual and there are no risks involved in claiming the funds. Therefore, I assure you that we will be both happy at the end with your full co-operation.

I am very happy that you have accepted this proposal therefore, I am prepared to go into a joint partnership venture with you and I offer you 40% of the total funds while you will keep 60% for me in your account till I join you with my family for further investment plans.

With regards,
Mr. Michael Williams
The email was sent from the email address ""Mr. Michael Williams" <mr.michaelwilliams101@gmail.com>", with the subject "Re: MY GOOD FRIEND".

The email is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam with promises of a large sum of money being transferred to the victim. Anyone responding to it will be told that there is a fee/tax/insurance payment to be paid to receive the money. This will be followed by payment after payment until the victim runs out of money or realises that they are being scammed.
