Hello,<*xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
We are not sure you received our previous letter wherein we expressed our grave concerns about an estate of a member of your family linage who died interstate. As stated in that letter (our previous letter), the bank is at the verge of closing the account of high value which is now dormant belonging apparently to one of your family members who reportedly died interstates in London, United Kingdom five years ago leaving behind a substantial amount of money in a bank account here in Hong Kong.
In view of the above, we have been retained to administer the estate without delays and would like to discuss certain privileged information with you since you have been identified and located as an only suitable heir apparent to the estate as you share the last name of the deceased customer of the bank. We would respectfully request that you treat the content of this letter as privileged and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this correspondence.
In compliance with standard requirements of the federal disclosure and privacy laws which prohibit us from revealing certain privileged information without due process, we intentionally left out certain information which we deemed proprietary at this point and to enable us double-check our record and ensure that you are indeed the addressee of this letter, we need you to reconfirm your basic information which include but not limited to your full names (no initial please); your date of birth - as proof of maturity to handle a project of this magnitude and finally, your contact information(your mailing address, telephone and fax number). Once your information corresponds with our records and the endorsement is completed, we shall provide you with all the privileged information/legal documents relating to the deceased customer and his now dormant investment account and also will give you guidelines on how we intend to realise this goal without the breach of the law.
For further information, do not hesitate to contact us. We thank you for your attention and look forward to hearing from you shortly.
Waiting for your reply,
