Subject: GOOD DAY
My name is Mr. Andy Tan. I trained and work
as an external auditor, with Royal Bank of Scotland Islamic Malaysia. On
routine audit check last month, I happen to find some investment
accounts that had been dormant for over fourteen years.

account holder with monies totaling a little above $17.9 million United
States Dollars. Further investigations of the said account reveal that

compensation will be worth every effort and commitment that you will
bring into this transaction. . On receipt of your response, I shall
provide you with my private telephone number with which we shall speak
and upon which I shall furnish you with greater details of this
I do expect to hear from you.
