Dear Sir/Madam I am a member of the auditing team at OCBC Bank Singapore though you were listed as a beneficiary to the total sum of $26.2M USD (Twenty Six Million Two Hundred Thousand United States dollars) of a deceased who may relate to you (perhaps) in Singapore died couple of years ago in Tsunami tragedy in Indonesia (name withheld for security reason) who died interstate with no Will or Next of Kin. To maintain the level of security required I have intentionally left out the final details.
