Good Day To You,
Though i have not considered this medium to be the best manner to have
approached you on this issue being that the Internet has been greatly abused
over the recent years and is very unsecured for informations of vital
importance. I have decided to take the chance seeing that no other means
could have been faster and more efficient than the E-mail.
I am Franky Martins J, Staff of Hsbc Bank (London).I am contacting
you concerning a deceased customer and an investment he placed under our
banks management four years ago to the tune of Fifty million united states
dollars($50,000,000,00).I would respectfully request that you keep the
contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the
information you come by as a result of this mail.I have been incharge of this
department for six years and to best of my knowledge,i have discharged my
duty with equity.
In the process of review of the financial report by my department, I
discovered that both of you have a similar last name, hence I contacted you
so that I can give you further briefing on my intention and how to disburse
the funds and estate he left behind.
My proposal; you share the same surname With our late client; I am prepared
to place you in a position to instruct The security Firm to release the
deposit to you as the closest surviving relation.Upon receipt of the
deposit,I am prepared to share the money with you in half. That is:I will
simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to
you. We share then proceeds 50/50.
I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me
know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man
and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. There is a
reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking.
I will most welcome your prompt response via this Email:
(email@example.com) as that would enable us to start
Franky Martins John
