Dear Friend, Good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life. I would respectfully request that you keep the content of this mail confidential because of its nature and respect the integrity of this information. First of all I'll like to introduce myself and status, I am David Wales, staff o f Oceanic International Bank of Nigeria. I am contacting you concerning a deceas ed customer and a financial portfolio of 38,000,000 GBP (Thirty Eight Million Gr eat Britain Pounds) which he placed under Oceanic Bank Managements 2 years ago f or turn over on his behalf. As the Chief Operations Officer of the private banking sector, I encouraged the deceased on his arrival to our bank on various growth of fund with prime ratings .The favored route in my advice to him was accessing data on 6,000 traditional s tocks and bond managements. Based on my advise, attractive margins accrued profi t and interest stood at over 45,000,000.00 GBP, this margin was not the full pot ential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investment. Ear ly 2006 my client asked that the money be liquidated because of an urgent invest ment requiring cash payments here in Nigeria, and that the liquidated fund be de posited in CORPORATE SECURITIES CO, a security consulting firm based in Nigeria who are specialist private firm that accepts deposits from high net worth indivi duals and blue chip corporations that handle valuable products and undertake tra nsactions that need immediate access to cash. This order was given to me in anti cipation of his arrival from Norway later that week, this was the last communica tion we had. Sometimes this year I got a call from CORPORATE SECURITIES CO. informing me of t he inactivity of the portfolio, since I was the only one who knew about the depo sit, I immediately passed the task of locating my client to the Internal Investi gation Department of Oceanic Bank, which now revealed that the person who suited his description was declared dead of a Heart attack in Cannes, South of France. And in line with banking internal processes for account holders who have passed away, an investigation was meant to be launched to contact a possible surviving NEXT OF KIN to come forward as beneficiary of the fund but unfortunately when m y client came patronizing our services, in his bio data form, no next of kin was listed neither was there a TESTATE. My client only used numbers and codes to ma ke the account he opened with us anonymous. At this junction, I'll like to unravel the true position of this transaction, CO RPORATE SECURITIES CO, has request for statements of claim from me, and I alone knows of the existence of the deposit, for as far as Oceanic Bank is concerned t he transaction with our late client concluded when I sent the fund to the securi ty firm, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are just customer service and due process. The security firm has no single idea of what the histor y or nature of the deposit is, they await instructions to release the deposit to any party that I nominate as the beneficiary of the fund. You share similar det ails to the late fellow, I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct Co rporate Securities Co. to release the deposit to you as the NEXT OF KIN. Let me know your true interest in this pending transaction so as to ascertain th e proceeds as 20% of the funds will be yours as soon as the funds is release int o your Bank account, and I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within few days. I implore you discard this mail if you find no interest in this transaction, and if my offer is of no appeal to you, please don't be vindic tive and destructive just delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. I f you are interested in this transaction please send me your: Names: Sex: Address: Country: Telephone: fax number: In your reply to this business transaction. I await for your urgent response to this email.(email@example.com). I await your response. David Wales.
