From: "Michael Jaramillo" <>

This email with the subject "Goodday" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Wed, 04 Feb 2009 18:24:07 -0500 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was "Michael Jaramillo" <>, although it may have been spoofed.


My name is Corso Marconi, I am a senior partner in the Technical Advisory Board of CheBanca italy 
Bank Group (Senior Security Specialist). We are conducting a standard process investigation on 
behalf of "AIB Group", the International Banking conglomerate.

This investigation involves a client who shares the same surname with you and also the 
circumstances surrounding investments made by this client at "AIB Group", the Private Banking arm 
of CheBanca italy Bank. The client died in testate and nominated no successor in title over the 
investments made with the bank. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this 
mail private and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail.

I contact you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this communication. I 
would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you. You share 
similar details to the late fellow; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct the 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, that is, I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and 
have them release the deposit to you. We share the proceeds 50/50.I would have gone ahead to ask 
the funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in 
claiming the deposit. But on the other hand, you with the same very name as the depositor's would 
easily pass as the beneficiary with right to claim. I assure you that I could have the deposit 
released to you within few working days.

I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. I ask that if you find no interest in this project 
that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my offer 
is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my 
career because you do not approve of my proposal. You may not know this but people like myself who 
have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private banking sector. I am not a 
criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to 
understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only 
come ones in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by, for once, I have found myself in 
total control of my destiny. These chances won't pass me by. 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 have evaluated the 
risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me. I am the only one who 
knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the 
center of relevance in my life. Lets share the blessing. If you find yourself able to work with me, 
contact me through my email account below. If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this 
process towards a conclusion.

I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within 
me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a 
platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not 
betray my confidence.This E-mail contains information which is confidential and  you may not 
disclose to anyone If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting soon.


Kind regards,

Corso Marconi.
