My name is Myles Gallagher, I am a senior partner in the Technical Advisory
Board of Allied Irish 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 Allied Irish 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

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

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. If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting

Kind regards,

Myles Gallagher.
