Dear Good one!!!!!
I am an investment consultant working with United Trust Bank at their offshore department london. I 
will be happy to work this 
deal out with you if you have a corporate or personal Bank Account and if you are capable to keep 
TOP SECRET. I need strong 
Assurance that you will never let me down, if I transfer this money to your account.

During one of our periodic auditing I discovered a dormant accounts with holding balance of US$ 
130,000.000.00 {One hundred and Thirty million US Dollars only}Sometimes a person 
will open a bank account, deposit money, and then disappear into the tin air. Banks are not always 
able to find out what has 
become of these silent customers, or to know whether they should follow up on requests from people 
who claim to be heirs to the 

The main problem is that the customer resides abroad and, due to bank secrecy, the bank cannot 
publish notices in the 
international press to locate the depositaries. This has led the majority of Swiss banks to refrain 
from opening small-deposit 
accounts for foreign customers; for fear that they will forget that the account exists.It has 
happened in the past, however, 
that customers pass away and their heirs can neither prove the death, nor their heir ship. This was 
a frequent occurrence 
during the wartime periods, and the banks have now set up a simple, rapid resolution procedure 
operating to their customers’ 

Dormant assets are defined as any assets deposited with a bank (i.e. an account, a custody account 
or a 
safety-deposit box) for which there has been no contact with the customer in the bank’s files for 
the last ten years or more.If 
you believe you have claim to a Swiss bank account for which the holder (e.g. an ancestor) has not 
been in contact with the bank 
for over ten years, there is a fairly simple procedure to follow, depending on the date the account 
was opened  this 
account has not been operated for the past years. As at this moment, I am constrained to issue more 
details about this 
business until your response is received.If you are not familiar with Swiss Dormant Accounts and 
profile, please take a moment of 
your very busy schedules to read about Swiss dormant accounts:
If you know that you are capable to handle large or small amount on trust and can keep secret and 
ready to take 40% of any amount 
I transfer to your account from the dormant account and I will ake 60%, send the following 
information by return 

Bank name....................
Bank address..................
Account no.....................
Swift code......................
Account name.................
Beneficiary address...........
Your phone no.................
Your Occupation...............
Tell me more about yourself, while I look forward to receive the above information.I want to 
re-assure you that this business is 
risk free and you can send an empty account to receive the funds, provided that the account is 
capable to receive incoming 
Thank you for your time and attention.
Warmest regards
Mr.Careem James.
