Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled "Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.

If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

With due respect,
  
I am Olivia Duncan of Investec Private Bank (UK),Manchester branch, United
Kingdom. I am contacting you concerning a deceased customer and an investment
he placed under our banks management three years ago, and 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 am contacting you independently of our investigation and no one is informed
of this communication. I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I
believe would be of interest to you. In the year 2005,the subject matter; came
to our bank to engage in business discussions.He informed us that he had a
financial portfolio of Ten million United States dollars, which he wished to
have us turn over (invest) on his behalf.

I decided to treat his case personally; I made numerous suggestions in line
with my duties as the de-facto Chief investment officer of the bank, especially
given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank.We met on numerous
occasions prior to any investments being placed. I encouraged him to consider
various growth funds with prime ratings. The favoured route in my advice to
customers is to start by assessing data on 6000 traditional stocks and bond
managers and 2000 managers of alternative investments. Based on my advice, We
spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our
first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point
at over One million United States Dollars, this margin was not the full
potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on
investments.
 
In November 2006, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to
make an urgent investment requiring cash payments in Finland.Where he said, he
is investing with a Firm that is building a housing estate outside Helsinki for
the government of Finland. He directed that I liquidate the investment and
deposit the funds with a security firm. I informed him that Investec Private
Bank would have to make special arrangements to have this done and in order not
to circumvent due process, the bank would have to make a 9.5 % deduction from
the funds to cater for banking and statutory charges. He complained about the
charges but later came around when I explained to him the complexities of the
task he was asking of us.
 
Cash movement across boarders has become especially strict since the incidents
of 9/11. I contacted my affiliate and made the funds available to a security
firm. I undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise
instructions to the letter and had the funds deposited with the security firm.
The Security Firm is a specialist private firm that accepts deposits from high
net worth individuals and blue chip corporations that handle valuable products
or undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash. This small and
highly private organization is familiar especially to the highly placed and
well-connected organizations. In line with instructions, the money was
deposited with the security firm. The Customer told me he wanted the money
there in anticipation of his arrival from Norway later that week. This was the
last communication we had, this transpired around 26th February 2007.In June
last year, we got a call from the security firm informing us about the
inactivity of that particular portfolio.

 This was an astounding position as far as I was concerned, given the fact that
I managed the private banking sector I was the only one who knew about the
deposit at the security firm, and I could not understand why the Customer had
not come forward to claim his deposit. I made futile efforts to locate the
Customer. I immediately passed the task of locating him to the internal
investigations department of Investec Private Bank. Four days later,
information started to trickle in, apparently our client was dead. A person who
suited his description was declared dead of a heart attack in canne, in Southern
part of France. The body was identified and the cause of death was confirmed.
The bank immediately launched an investigation into possible surviving next of
kin to alert them about the situation and also to come forward to claim his
estate. 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. Investec Private 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 and as I said, rarely
do they nominate next of kin. Private banking clients apart from not nominating
next of kin also usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case;
the deceased died without a testate. In line with our internal processes for
account holders who have passed away, we instituted our own investigations in
good faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate. This
investigation has for the past months been unfruitful. We have scanned every
continent and used our private investigation affiliate companies to get to the
root of the problem.It is this investigation that resulted in my being
furnished with your details as a possible relative of the deceased.
 
My official capacity dictates that I am the only party to supervise the
investigation and the only party to receive the results of the
investigation.What this means,after investigating the last batch of names
forwarded to us as possible relatives, we have come to the conclusion that Our
dear late fellow died with no known or identifiable family member.This leaves
me as the only person with the full picture of what the prevailing situation is
in relation to the deposit and the late beneficiary of the deposit.
 
According to practice, The Security Firm will by the end of this year broadcast
a request for statements of claim to Investec Private Bank, failing to receive
viable claims they will most probably revert the deposit back to Investec
Private Bank. This will result in the money entering the Investec Private Bank
accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the
private banking division.

 This will not happen if I have my way. 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 private banking especially is fraught with
huge rewards for those that occupy certain offices and oversee certain
portfolios. You should have begun by now to put together the general direction
of what I propose. There is Ten million dollars deposited in a security firm, I
alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one
unless I instruct them to do so. I alone know of the existence of this deposit
for as far as Investec Private Bank is concerned.
 
The transaction with our late customer concluded when I sent the funds to the
security firm, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are just
customer services and due process. The security Firm has no single idea of
what's the history or nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting
instructions to release the deposit to any party that come forward. This is the
situation. This bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track this
man's family; they have investigated for months and have found no family.
The investigation has come to an end.

 My proposal;I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct the security
Firm to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relative. Upon
receipt of the deposit I am prepared to share the money with you. That is,I
will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit
to you and share the proceeds with you in a percentage we will arrive at taking
into consideration our individual level of commitment.I would have gone ahead to
ask that the funds be released to me,but that will draw a straight line to me
and my involvement in claiming the deposit. But presenting you as a relative
with the right to claim the deposit as a next of kin will mask my involvement
and participation in diverting the deposit for personal use.You will get all
the documents needed to effect this claim immediately you notify me of your
acceptance to claim this deposit for our mutual benefit.

I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within a few days. I
will simply inform the bank of the final closing of the file relating to the
deceased. I will then officially communicate with The Security Firm and
instruct them to release the deposit to you. With these two things all is done.
 
The alternative would be for us to have The Security Firm direct the funds to
another bank with you as account holder. This way there will be no need for you
to think of receiving the money from The Security Company. We can fine-tune this
based on our interactions. I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. 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 ever contacted you. Do not
destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. You may not know
this but people like myself 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 one's way, once in a
lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by, for once I find myself in total
control of my destiny. This chances won't pass me  by. I ask that you do
not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move
on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family woman and this is an
opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. There is a reward for this
project and 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. I am the only one that is aware of this
situation, good fortune has blessed you with a luck that has planted you into
the center of relevance in my life. Let's share the blessing. If you find
yourself able to work with me, contact me through this email account. If you
give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. I
wish to inform you that should you contact me via official channels; I will
deny knowing you and about this project. I repeat, I do not want you contacting
me through my official phone lines nor do I want you contacting me through my
official email account. 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 myself. My official lines are not secured lines as they are
periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our
Total Quality Management Policy.Please observe this instruction religiously.

 Please,again, note I am a family woman; I have a husband and children. I send
you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what 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. Do not betray my confidence.
 
Thanks for your anticipated cooperation

Sincerely,

Olivia Duncan
