First and foremost, I want to use this medium to thank you for responding to my previous email.
Before I proceed, let me quickly introduce my good self. I am Josh Rahim, 52yrs, Managing Director, CIMB Bank. I am a single father of 2 beautiful girls Aadila and A'ishah. I will tell you anything you want anything more you want to know about me.
I received your brief response to my brief message, and I wish to thank you for responding, and also apologize for any inconveniences. I am getting in touch with you regarding the estate and an investment of deceased client placed under our bank's management 6 years ago. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this email strictly confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this email. I contacted you independently and no one except the attorney to CIMB is aware of this communication.
In 2007, the subject matter, late Dr. Ralph Burkei, a Doctor, an Entrepreneur and big business mogul made a investment deposit of Twenty Five Million, Two Hundred and Seventy Five Thousand Dollars ($25,275.000.00) only with CIMB Bank (my branch). After a while (1yr later, that is in 2008) we noticed that no transaction was being run on the account, and as a result a number of notices was sent to Dr. Ralph Burkei but no response came from him. All other effort to reach him proved abortive. During this period the account became dormant. In May, 2009 we later discovered that Dr. Ralph Burkei had died along with his family in November 2008 Mumbai Bomb attacks that occurred in Taj Mahal Palace & Tower Hotel. Please see:
During CIMB Bank mid-year Financial Assessment in July, 2012, I discovered that nobody has come for the investment of late Dr. Ralph Burkei. I also found out that late Dr. Ralph Burke did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank's deposit. This is my reason for contacting you.
What bothers me most is according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 6 years which is by end of this year, the funds will be revert to the ownership of the British Government if nobody comes for the funds. Against this scenery, I have all the information needed to claim these funds and I want you to act as the next of kin to late Dr. Ralph Burkei's investment deposit. There is absolutely no risk involved in this matter as I hold the key to the funds and we are going to adopt a legitimate method as I have all paper works to make you the next of kin to the funds. We shall be working with the attorney of CIMB Bank on this transaction. He is already aware of my contact with you. I want you to know that you will be entitled to 30% of the entire funds; the attorney will be entitled to 20% while I get 50% as the originator of the deal.
All I require is your honest co-operation and I am guaranteeing you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. I want to be sure that you are ready to execute this transaction with me in trust and total commitment. I know you would wonder why I chose you in this when we don't even know each other but I don't worry about that. We can cope. It's all about trust.
I will appreciate you to follow my directives amicably and a banker I know that if we follow up this transaction diligently it would be completed within 14 working days. To begin with please provide me with the following information so that the attorney can begin work immediately.
Your Full Name and Surname:
Your Old Address in 2007 and your present address:

Please note: I send you this email 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. The transaction is hitch free. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we would enjoy a mutual business relationship in the nearest future.
Please pardon any writing mistakes and typographical errors I am not very good in English.
I await your prompt reply on this so that.
