I work as a senior investment consultant for the DBS Capital Investment I work in between Asian and part of United Kingdom. I had taken pains to find your contact through personal endeavors. Approximately six months ago I discovered a total of US$12.5M (Twelve Million, five hundred thousand United State Dollars) with my department. With interest at today’s value, the said invested fund is now worth a little under US$20M the investors Lawyer notified my department of the sudden death (Car Accident) of His client the Lawyer expressed concern that the investor had died without a will and he has no details of any surviving relatives. The lawyer has now requested my department to check our records to clarify who the late investor may have named as his next of Kin on the investment application. Unfortunately, the person named as next of kin, was his Fiancee who also died in the car accident. I have not yet notified the lawyer that the next of Kin was the Fiancee. I virtually have another 14 working days to do so. Should I notify the lawyer of my findings, automatically; the invested funds will be confiscated by DBS Capital Investment and will be diverted elsewhere or be shared by the directors for their personal gains. On the basis of my worries, I decided to act fast by contacting and inviting you to work with me by posing as a relative of the deceased, with my insider’s privileged information, the funds can be paid to you as the only surviving relative. I have all the information and guidance to enable you and I realize this opportunity. I have evaluated the risk analysis and there is none, as long as you maintain confidentiality. As you should understand, I am taking a great risk contacting you and making this proposal. Therefore, you should understand why I must say no more about this transaction until I receive an email from you confirming receipt of this letter. Once secured communication has been established between you and me, detailed clarifications will be dealt with, such as what each party stand to benefit and time scale and procedures. Time is not our favor. Please establish secured communication with me through any of the above means.more details or send an email firstname.lastname@example.org Yours truly Larry Gaddis
