From: Mrs. Susana Mendoza. Credit account officer, Head office, Banco de Oro Unibank, Inc. Twr. Mkt Avenue. Cor.H.V Dela Costa Str. Philippines. firstname.lastname@example.org Good day, Let me start by introducing myself, I am Mrs Susana Mendoza, credit accounts officer Banco de Oro Unibank, Inc., Philippines. I am writing you this letter based on the latest development at my bank which I will like to bring to your knowledge. I am a top official in charge of foreign client accounts. In 2001, my client was going through a horrendous divorce in the USA and was on the verge oflosing most of his estate to his vicious wife. As a result of this alarmingpredicament, my client came to me with a very brilliant idea since he didn’t want to lose all to his crazy wife. He transferred some fundstotally US$10.2Million to a fixed deposit account in my bank under an aliaswhich only the two of us knew about as the confidentiality of the matter was necessary for his protection.Due to his untimely death in early 2002, the funds have been sitting in theaccount ever since and will continue to do so perpetually unless we do something about it. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I would like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to my client so that you will be able to receive these funds.Please note that only a foreigner can take possession of the funds since myclient was a foreigner as well. I want you to know that I have hadeverythingplanned out so that we can come out successful. I have contacted anattorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to my client. All that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your full names and address and telephone number so that the attorney can commence his job. The allocation of our money will be as follows: 30%($3.06M) to you for your part in this, 70% for me. This should be kept very secret and confidential. I believe you know. I wait for your response with contact details. Kind regards, Mrs Susana Mendoza
