From: Mr. William Cussans, Investment management,
Smith & Williamson
Private Banking Services
I am Mr. William Cussans, the accounting officer-in charge of the
Private investment section of the above named Finance house. I have
decided to contact you on a business Transaction that requires
confidentiality, Trust and transparency, where both of us have a
lot to benefit, during my investigation and auditing in the
Accounts section, I came across a huge sum of money belonging to a
deceased person. Though I know that contact of this nature will
make any one apprehensive and worried, I am assuring you that
everything has been taken care of, and you have nothing to fear at
all and i would be very glad if you would allow me bring you to a
clearer picture of what is on ground, what we intend to do and how
we intend to do it.
This enquiry involves a client who shares your surname. It was
brought to my knowledge that the aforementioned client died
intestate and nominated no next of kin to the title over
investments made. We came to know of you via the London. Global.
Database.Center (L.G.D.C.) Hence i am making this contact. The
essence of this communication with you is to request that you
provide me with information on 3 KEY issues.
1. Are you aware of any relative/relation having the same surname,
who's last known, contact address was Brussels, Belgium?
2. Are you aware of any investment of considerable value made by
such a person with any Private Bankers?
3 Can you establish beyond reasonable doubt your eligibility to
assume status of next of kin to the deceased?
He died in an air crash along with his wife on the 31st October
1999 in an Egyptian airline boeing 990 with other passengers on
board. You can confirm this fact from the website which was aired
by the BBC WORLD NEWS:
Since his death, none of his relatives or associates have come
forward to lay claims to his funds as next-of-kin, and on my own i
have made concerted effort to locate any of his relatives but all
proved abortive. Based on the ethics and policies of the bank,it
would be declared unclaimed and taken to the treasury of the bank
as capital base of the bank, because already the account has been
tagged dormant because it has exceeded the normal functional number
We cannot release the funds from his account unless someone applies
for it or lays claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidelines. Upon this discovery, I now
seek your permission and assistance to present you and have you
stand as a next of kin to the deceased,so that the funds can be
released and transfer to you, as all documentations will be
carefully worked out by me for it to be released in your favor as
the beneficiary's next of kin, if not the members of the board of
directors will utilise it for their personal aggrandisement.
Because after six years as this is the fifth year going it will be
called back to the bank treasury as unclaimed bills and shared
amongst the directors of the bank, so it is on this note i decided
to seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of
kin/beneficiary rather than allow the bank directors to share it
amongst themselves at the end of the year.
It may interest you to know that I have secured from the probate
commission an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased
beneficiaries. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in
acceptance of our mutual business endeavour by furnishing me with
the following information if you are interested.
1. A beneficiary name, in order for me to prepare the documents for
transfer in your name.
2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers...For our personal contact and
for easy communication between both of us.
Upon your acceptance I shall send you my identity for more
confidentiality and trust in each other as i shall trust you not to
elope at completion.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, please endeavor to contact
me immediately. Do not take undue advantage of the trust I have
bestowed in you, I await your urgent response. Contact me via this
email address please:
Do note that my email address at the bank is monitored and contact
should never be through that email.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
