||From: Mr. Colin Rich <<firstname.lastname@example.org>
My name is Mr Colin Rich. I trained and work as an external auditor
for Bank of Scotland. I Work as part of a bigger team that covers the
entire Scotland and England region. I have taken pains to find your
contact through personal endeavours.
On routine audit check last month, I discovered some investment
accounts that have been dormant for the last fourteen (14) years, all
the accounts belonging to a single holder with monies totaling a
little above (41,100,000.00) Forty-one Million One Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars. Banking regulation in the UK demands that the
fiscal authorities are notified when accounts are dormant for this
period, so that the funds can be called in by the regulatory bodies.
The above set of facts underscores my reason of writing and making the
My investigations of the said account reveals that the investor died
in 1997�the exact time the account was last operated, I can confirm
with certainty that the said investor died intestate and no
next�of�kin has been found or has come forward all these years. I am
of the settled conviction that using my insider leverage and working
with you, we can secure the funds instead of allowing it pass as an
unclaimed fund into the coffers of the UK Government. This is
especially possible as you bear the same LAST NAME to the said
investor, and can stand as his extended relative. This exactly is why
I crave your participation and co-operation.
I have seized all relevant documents (Legal and Banking) including
access to the very account of the deceased. This will facilitate my
putting you forward as the claimant/beneficiary of the funds and
ultimately transfer the money to any account nominated by you. You
shall be rewarded for your part in this transaction with 40% of the
total funds for your efforts, less any expenses. I shall however leave
out the final details of this transaction till I receive an
affirmation of your desire to participate. Be assured that I am on top
of the situation. There will be no risk involved whatsoever if you
agree to come on board. Needless to say, UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY is of
vital importance if we are to successfully reap the immense benefits
of this transaction. I guarantee that the transaction will be executed
under a legitimate arrangement that will protect us from any breach of
To affirm your willingness and cooperation to my proposal please
contact me through email stating the followings:-
(1) Full Name; (2) Telephone, Fax and Mobile Numbers; (3) Postal
Address: (4) Occupation;
Your prompt response will be highly appreciated.
