The sender was MR. ANDY TAN (AUDITOR) <>, although it may have been spoofed.

Dear Friend,

My name is Mr. Andy Tan. I trained and work as an external auditor,
with Royal Bank of Malaysia. On routine audit check last month, I happen
to find some investment accounts that had been dormant for over
fourteen years.

All the accounts belong to a single one account holder with monies
totaling a little above $17.9 million United States Dollars. Further
investigations of the said account reveal that the investor had died in
1995-the exact time the account was last operated. I also can confirm
with absolute certainty that the said investor died interstate, and no
next-of-kin to his estate has been found or come forward all these
years. Now, banking regulation/legislation here in Malaysia 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 funds by the monetary
regulatory body of Malaysia.

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 instead of allowing it pass as unclaimed funds into the
coffers of the Government of Malaysia. This is especially possible as
we will present you as a business partner to the said investor.

I have all relevant information to validate our claim presenting you as
next-of-Kin and all we will do shall be within the confines of all
Malaysia regulating Statutes. All I ask is your co-operation and trust
and all I can say at this time is that the compensation will be worth
every effort and commitment that you will bring into this transaction.
. On receipt of your response, I shall provide you with my private
telephone number with which we shall speak and upon which I shall
furnish you with greater details of this transaction.

I do expect to hear from you.

Yours sincerely,
Mr. Andy Tan.
