I am sorry for encroaching on your privacy in this manner but it is for a business purpose , I will like to take a little time to Introduce myself, I am Ms. Irene Lee, Non Executive Director,attached in Private banking services HSBC Bank .I would respectfully request that you keep the content of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come across as a result of this mail. I contacted you privately and no one is informed of this communication. I will give you the entire story behind the Business here. I do hope you find it interesting enough in accepting this proposal.

Sometime in 2015, a certain Engineer/contractor Late Robertson, made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, currently valued at GBP7,652,000.00 (Seven Million six Hundred and Fifty Two Thousand Great British Pounds Sterling) in my bank. Upon maturity, routine notifications were sent to his forwarding address but we got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, Royal Dutch plc that he died alongside his longtime companion in an Auto crash. If you are familiar with private banking practice, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In the deceased bio-data form, he listed no next of kin, In the field of private banking, accounts are rarely held under a name,depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous.

The world of banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. In this case, I alone have the deposit details as I was the account officer to the deceased as at the time the account Fixed deposit was made my bank will release the deposit to no one unless evidence of relationship with the deceased is presented. The bank's management has no single idea of the history of the deposit. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to the party that comes forward. My bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track this man's family. According to the Laws of my environment ( United Kingdom), at the expiration of a given period if the said fund is not claimed, the money will revert to the ownership of the United Kingdom government.

What I propose is that I will like you to stand in as the next of kin to the deceased Depositor as you both have same last name so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. For all your troubles I propose that we split the money 50/50. In the banking circle this happens every time. Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this message if you do not appreciate this proposal I have offered you. All confirmable documents to back up this fund shall be made available, as we move on; I will guide you on every step. 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.

The reward for this project makes it a task well worth undertaking. My position guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you find yourself able to work with me, I urge you to indicate to that effect. 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.

With Regards,
Irene Yun-Lien Lee
