Dr. Stephen Swanton Global Head of Equity Research London Regional Office UBS Investment Bank London. 1 Fins-bury Avenue, London EC2M 2PP. Greetings my dear friend, How are you? I seek your consent and cooperation for a business that is of mutual benefit to us. My name is Stephen Swanton, global head of equity research UBS Investment bank London branch. During the financial auditing of accounts in my bank, I discovered an unclaimed sum of eighteen million five hundred thousand great british pounds in an account belonging to one of our late foreign customer (Late Mr. Ronald Bramlage) a businessman who unfortunately died with his entire family in a plane crash with the private plane belonging to him. After going through his personal file in my bank I discovered that since he died with his entire family and without any specific heir to this fund, I can then execute this business with you. Therefore, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased to my Bank so that the money in this account will be released and transferred to you as the heir beneficiary, it will be shared between you and me in the following percentages: 65% for me and 35% for you respectively. You will subsequently send my own share as agreed after the Money is transferred to you as the official heir beneficiary to the Fund. I believe I can trust you in this business. All I request is your utmost sincere co-operation and trust to complete this transaction successfully. I have carefully worked out the modalities for execution of this transaction under a legitimate arrangement to protect you from any breach of the law to enable the fund to be transferred to your bank account. I will guide you on how to deal with UBS Investment Bank for the immediate release and transfer of the fund to you. If you are serious and willing to do this Business with me, send me the information below so that I can upload your data into my Banks database making you the official next of kin / heir beneficiary of the fund which the bank directors will also see when they check their computer/database. - Your Full Name: - Your Contact Address: - Your Mobile Number: - Your Date of Birth: - Occupation: - Sex: Thanks in appreciation and anticipation of your urgent response. Sincerely, Dr. Stephen Swanton
