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. 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 ourselves 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 final 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 transaction. 
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.
