Japan, I find it pleasurable to offer you my partnership in business
$40 Million United States Dollars
I only pray at this time that your address is still valid. I want to
solicit your attention to receive this money on my behalf. The
purpose of my contacting you is because my status would not permit me
to do this alone.
When you reply this message, I will send you the full details and more

I await your reply.
Mr.Suzuki Takuya Yuki.

Subject: The $40M will be shared (55% to me, 40% to you) :
I am in receipt of your mail and I thank you for your prompt response
and willingness to assist. Let me reassure you that the source of this
money is very legitimate and it does not have anything to do with
laundering or whatever of such. I know this may sound like a scam, as
plenty dubious activities are taking place over the internet today. I
assure you that this is authentic and legitimate. You will agree with
me that “there is never smoke without fire”. While some of the stories
on the internet are true, some others are far from it. In the banking
and the Government sector people actually transfer funds out of here.
How else do you think past office holders become rich after office?
How come the same people who have worked in the Legal/Banking industry
in the past, are the same people running big time companies today? It
is through shady deals that they guarantee themselves a better
standard of living and then are able to prepare themselves to seek for
political assignment after retiring from the Legal/Banking industries.
I am in control of all situations regarding the success of this
transaction, so you have nothing to be apprehensive about.
I must let you know that this transaction shall pass through all legal
and documented processes. I am a Banker I know what is involved, so
therefore I am going to implore my practical Banking experiences in
this transaction and we shall come out very successful. For this
transaction to commence, I will need you to tell me about yourself and
provide me with your details so I can be sure of who I am about to
engage in business and if you have the capacity to handle sums of this
nature. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of
this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information
you come by as a result of this mail. I contacted you independently of
our investigation and no one is informed of this communication.
Sometime in 1999, a certain consultant/contractor Mr. Alexander Joshua
made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months,
valued at large amount (Amount withheld for known reasons) in my
branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding
address in America but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder
and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Japanese
Solid Minerals Corporation that Mr. Alexander Joshua died long side
his longtime companion, from an airplane crash.
If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize
our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of
detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he
listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking, opening an
account with us means no one will know of its existence, accounts are
rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the
accounts anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to depositors of
having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring
that there are no traces of the account. Private banking clients apart
from not nominating any next of kin also usually in most cases leave
WILLS in our care, in this case; Mr. Alexander Joshua died intestate.
In line with our internal processes for account holders who have
passed away, my bank conducted a search in good faith to determine who
should have right to claim the estate. This has for the past months
been unfruitful. This sum has since been sitting in my bank and the
interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of
each year. No one, it is evident is going to come forward for it.
According to the Laws of my environment, at the expiration of 10 (TEN)
years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Japanese
Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. What I wish to relate
to you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand
something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the
internal politics of the banking world aberrational.
The world of banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those
who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. I alone
have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one
unless evidence of relationship with the deceased, which I shall
provide you with, is presented. I alone know of the existence of this
deposit for as far as the Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi is concerned, the
bank's management has no single idea of the history or nature of the
deposit. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit
to the party that comes forward. This is the situation. My bank has
spent great amounts of money trying to track this man's family; they
have investigated for months and have found no relative. The
investigation has come to an end. Consequently, what I propose is that
I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr.
Alexander Joshua so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not
get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. Acting in
this capacity really is simple as I will explain in detail to you when
I get your response. Being aware of this request I am making, I ask
that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard
this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my
offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I never
contacted you. You may not know this but people like me who have made
tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private banking
sector. I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good
conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics
of my industry dictates that I make this move.
Such opportunities only come ones' way once in a lifetime. If you will
not work with me let me know and I will move on with my life but do
not destroy me. I wish to inform you that you should not contact me
via official channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project.
Contact me only through this email address provide to you. I do not
want any direct phone conversation link between you and me. My
official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored
to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality
Management Policy I am a family man and this is an opportunity to
provide my family with new opportunities. The reward for this project
makes it is a task well worth undertaking. I have evaluated the risks
and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and
alerting my bank. My position as the Head of Finance Dept guarantees
the successful execution of this transaction. If you find yourself
able to work with me, I urge you to indicate to that effect and the
funds will be shared (55% to me, 40% to you and 5% for any extenses) I
am certain that we can conclude this transaction within ten (10)
banking days from the date of my receipt of the reconfirmation of
relevant information from you as I have outlined below:
Your Full Name:
Your Present address;
Your Address as at 24th November 1998 (date of the drafting of the will):
Your confidential Telephone number (not voicemail or answering machine):
Your most secured E mail address:
A Scan Copy of your ID Card:
I will proceed to appointing an attorney who will prepare the
necessary documents and affidavits which will put you in place as the
next of kin to Mr. Alexander Joshua (the deceased depositor). The
attorney will draft a backdated WILL to purport that it had been
written and signed by the depositor himself, which will name you as
the beneficiary/sole executor of the described inheritance therein the
WILL and the attorney will file in the High court the appropriate
affidavit in order to empower you as the next of kin/Sole Beneficiary
and Trustee/Sole Executor of the Estate of the depositor which
includes the Funds, which with the payment of the same due to you as
the next of kin and executor of the WILL. The very good thing about
this transaction is that it will be done in a very proper and legal
manner. After all the necessary documentation for the funds release
are met and satisfied, an approval may be given by the board of my
bank for the release of the funds to your nominated account. I wish to
inform you that should you contact me via official channels; I will
deny knowing you and about this project. Contact me only through the
numbers I will provide for you and also through this email address. I
do not want any direct link between you and me. My official lines are
not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our
level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management
Policy. Please, again, note I am a family man; I have a wife and
children, 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
plan a meeting, soon. In closing, please observe utmost
confidentiality, and be rest assured that this transaction would be
most profitable for both of us.
Awaiting your urgent reply.
Mr. Suzuki Takuya Yuki
(Head of Account Department,
Tokyo Mitsubishi Bank, Tokyo, Japan.
