Subject: [*SPAM*]Dear Friend.
My names are Mr. Jose K. Joseph and I was an assistant branch manager of Mashreq Bank Dubai.
I write you in connection to a transaction that would be beneficial to you and me. As an assistant Branch Manager of the bank, it is within my purview to send in yearly financial report to the Bank Headquarters at the end of each business year.
In the course of reviewing the year 2011 report, I discovered that my branch has Thirty Eight Million, Seven Hundred Thousand US Dollars (US$38, 700,000:00) in slush fund. It may interest you to note that a slush fund, colloquially, is an auxiliary monetary account or a reserve fund. However, in the context of corrupt dealings, such as those by governments or large corporations, a slush fund can have part particular connotations of secrecy in regard to the use of this money and the means by which the funds were acquired.
Six years after, my head office is oblivous of it and as it were, has no way of knowing as I understand that the original depositor died four years ago or thereabout and till date no one has come forward to claim the fund. The plan is to present you as the Manager of the deceased's Estate.
I have just placed this funds in what we call Nostro Vostro account with no beneficiary. As a management staff of this bank I cannot be directly connected to this money, so my aim of contacting you is to assist me receive this money in your bank account and get 40% of the total funds as remuneration for your involvement. There is practically no risk involved, the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that protects us from any breach of the law as it will strictly be a bank-to-bank transfer after the re-certification of the fund as the fallout of a bequest/donation bequeathed to you or your organization.
All we need to do is to secure the pertinent structures in place to authenticate your claim as the manager of the deceased's Estate and consequently the beneficiary of the fund. Your prompt response would be appreciated.
Thanking you in advance for your anticipated assistance and cooperation.
Mr. Jose K. Joseph
