From the Desk of
Mr. Michael Smith
STRICTLY AND PRIVATE BUSINESS PROPOSAL.
I am Mr. Michael Smith, The Manager Bills and Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department of the Standard Chartered bank London. I am writing this letter to ask for your support and cooperation to carry out this business opportunity in my departments. We discovered an abandoned sum of Ј11,500,000.00 (Eleven Million, Five Hundred Thousand British pounds sterling only) in an Account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family of a wife and two children in November 1999 in a plane crash. Since we heard of his death, we have been expecting his next-of-kin to come over and put claims for his money as the heir, because we
cannot release the fund from his Account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our Banking guidelines.
Unfortunately, neither their family member nor distant relative has ever appeared to claim the said fund. Upon this discovery, I and other officials in my department have agreed to make business with you and release the total amount into your Account as the heir of the fund, since no one came for it or discovered he maintained Account with our Bank, otherwise the fund will be returned to the Banks treasury as unclaimed fund. We have agreed that our ratio of sharing will be as stated thus: 30% for you as a foreign partner, 60% for us the officials in my department and 10% for the settlement of all local and foreign expenses incurred by us and you during the course of this business. Upon the successful completion of this transfer, I and one of my colleagues will come to your Country and mind our
share. It is from our 60% we intend to invest in (estate) as a way of recycling the fund.
To commence this transaction, we require you to immediately indicate your interest by a return E-mail and enclose your private contact telephone number, fax number including your mobile number, full name and address and your designated Bank coordinates to enable us file letter of claim to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals before the transfer can be made.
Note also, this transaction must be kept STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL because of its nature. I look forward to receiving your prompt response.
Mr. Michael Smith
