Dear Sir,    

My name is Patrick Lee Chia. I trained and work as an external auditor for the
Development Bank of Singapore (DBS), working as part of a bigger team that
covers the entire Asian region.. I had taken pains to find your contact through
a colleague that is connected with your country Chamber of Commerce and who
assisted in delivering this email. 
On routine audit check last year, it happened that some investment accounts in
the DBS that had been dormant for over fourteen years. All the accounts belong
to a single/ one account holder with monies totalling a little above 3.9 million
United States Dollars.  Further investigations of the said   account reveal that
the investor, AN AMERICAN CITIZEN (from your country) had died in late 1992-the
exact time the account was last operated. I   also can confirm with absolute
certainty that the said investor died in testate and no next -of -kin to his
estate has been found or came forward all these years. 
Now, banking regulation/legislation here in Singapore demand that I do notify
the fiscal authorities of dormant accounts of this type. Indeed after a
statutory time span of fifteen years, dormant accounts of this type are called
in as unclaimed monies by the Singapore monetary regulatory bodies. 
The above set of fact is the reason why I have contacted you. I am of the
settled conviction   that   using our insider leverage, we (I am working on this
with one other Auditor), working with you can secure the funds in this DBS
account for us instead of allowing it pass as unclaimed funds into the coffers
of the Government of Singapore.  This is especially possible as you bear the
same LAST NAME to the said investor. 
As my purpose of writing is to ask your co-operation to put you forward as the
only surviving relative of the deceased investor. I am in possession of all
relevant documents (legal and Banking) that will facilitate our achieving this
goal. Once we get this deposit in the DBS transferred to your name as Next-Of
Kin, we shall use our banking knowledge and expertise, to supervise the transfer
of his account holdings in DBS to an account to be nominated by you as sole
beneficiary to the estate. 

Of course you shall be handsomely rewarded   for your part in this transaction
as the person I am working with is prepared to allocate a 25% slice of the total
funds for your efforts. 
I shall however leave out the finer details of this transaction till I receive
an affirmation of your desire to participate. Rest assured that we are on top of
the situation all the time and there will be no risk whatsoever if you elect to
come on board. Needless to say though, UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY is of vital
importance if we are to successfully   reap the immense benefits of this

Find above an email contact that you may reach me with. I shall furnish you
with   a telephone number by which we shall communicate on getting a response
from you. 

I do expect to hear from you.
Patrick Lee Chia

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
