For The Attention of: Sir/Madam,
I am Mr. Patrick Forte, Principal Officer Private Banking Dept of the
Swiss Bank Corporation (UBS) Zurich , Switzerland . I am getting in
touch with you regarding the Estate of a deceased client with similar
last name and an investment placed under our Bank management 7 years
ago. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this
mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you may
come by as a result of this mail. I contact you independently and no one
is informed of this communication. In 2006, the subject matter came to
our bank to engage in business discussions with our private banking
division. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of 18.35
million United States dollars, which he wished to have us invest on his
Based on my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and
made attractive margins for our first 6 months of operation, the accrued
profit and interest stood at this point at over 20million United States
Dollars. In mid 2009, he instructed that the principal sum ($18.35M) be
liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash
payments in Germany . We got in touch with a specialist Bank in Spain
who agreed to receive this money for a fee and make cash available to
him. However the bank in Spain got in touch with us last year that this
money has not been claimed. On further enquiries we found out that he
was involved in an accident in Australia , which means he died
intestate. He has no next of kin and that is the reason I am writing you
because you share the same last name.
What I propose is that since I have exclusive access to his file, you
will be made the beneficiary of these funds. My bank will contact you
informing you that money has been willed to you. On verification, which
will be the details I make available to my bank, my bank will instruct
Santander Bank in Spain to make payments to you. You do not have to have
known him. I know this might be a bit heavy for you but please trust me
on this. For all your troubles I propose that we split the money in
half. In the banking circle this happens every time.
The other option is that the money will revert back to the state.
Nobody is getting hurt; this is a lifetime opportunity for us. I hold
the KEY to these funds, and as a Swiss National we see so much cash and
funds being re-assigned daily. I would want us to keep communication for
now strictly by email and fax.
Please, again, note I am a family man; I have a wife and children. I
send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to the consequences,
but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that
success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the
one truth I have learned from my private banking clients.
Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should act
swiftly on this. Please get back to me on this my email address;
Await your response.
Mr. Patrick Forte.
