Hello, How are you doing today? I am a banker with a bank in Switzerland. Before I proceed, I must first apologize for this unsolicited mail to you, I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust, but you will realize the need for my action, because I got your contact information from the country public records when am searching for a last name similar to one of the bank’s client, so I came across your contact details and I decide to reach you through this medium of exercise. Though, this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused by all sorts of dubious persons, but I choose to reach you through internet because it still remains the fastest, surest and most secured medium of communication at the moment. I am conducting a standard process investigation on behalf of our Bank and this investigation involves a client and also the circumstances surrounding investments made by this client with our Bank. Our client died intestate and nominated no successor in title over the investments made with our bank. The essence of this communication with you is to request you provide us with your information (Address, Telephone and Fax Numbers) / comment on this issue so that I can use my position in the bank to establish your eligibility to assume status of successor in title to the deceased.You must appreciate that we are constrained from providing you with more detailed information at this point. Please respond to this mail as soon as possible to afford us the opportunity to explain further details to you.Best Regards, Berger Patrick. Bern-Switzerland. Foreign Remittance Department.
