Based on this, it become necessary that we ask for your partnership in the transaction by we fronting you as the beneficiary to the claim.We have agreed that 25% of the total sum will go to you for your involvement and your financial support while the balance 75% come to us.
Very importantly, the deal is 100% risk free, as with our position in the Corporation we shall procure all relevant documentations from the authorities concern that will confirm the total legality of the transaction and make the release of the claim possible in few days.

And finally again from the UK he states he is not a crook but has 30 million for you
I am David Palmer, staff of SMITH & WILLIAMSON Private Banking.
I am contacting you concerning a deceased customer and an investment he placed under our
banks management three years ago.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 contacted 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 2000, the subject matter; came to our bank to engage in business
discussions with our private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial
portfolio of Thirty million united states dollars,which he wished to have us turn over
(invest) on his behalf.I was the officer assigned to his case, I made numerous suggestions
in line with my duties as the de-facto chief operations officer of the private banking
sector, 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 rowth funds with prime ratings.
The favored route in my advise 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 ten million United States Dollars, this margin was not the full potential of the fund
but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments.
This 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, you being the last batch of names we have
considered, is 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 financial year broadcast a request for
statements of claim to SMITH & WILLIAMSON,failing to receive viable claims they will most
probably revert the deposit back to SMITH & WILLIAMSON.This will result in the money
entering the SMITH & WILLIAMSON 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.
My proposal; you share the same surname With our late client; I am prepared to place you
in a position to instruct The security Firm to release the deposit to you as the closest
surviving relation.Upon receipt of the deposit,I am prepared to share the money with you
in half. That is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the
deposit to you. We share the proceeds 50/50.I would have gone ahead to ask the funds be
released to me, butthat would have drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in
claiming the deposit. But on the other hand, you with the same very name as the original
depositor would easily pass as the beneficiary with right to claim. 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 ones' way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass
me by, for once I find myself in total control of my destiny. These chances wont 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 man 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 who
knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you
into the center of relevance in my life.Lets share the blessing.If you find yourself able
to work with me, contact me through this email account email@example.com
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 me. My official lines are not secure 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 man, I have a wife 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 learnd from my private banking clients. Do not betray
my confidence.Kindly send your response to my private email address firstname.lastname@example.org
I await your response.
