Good day and may the blessings of this day rest on you, hope you are in good health? Please do not 
take this unserious, i plead your pardon for my approach, ok. My name is Mr. Edward Tan. I trained 
and work as an external auditor for the Development Bank of Singapore (DBS). I had taken pains to 
find your contact through personal endeavors.
A foreigner with thesame last name as yours, died here in Singapore, twelve years ago leaving 
behind an estate/capital (US$31.8M with interest) here in DBS where I work, till date nobody has 
come forward or put application for the claim.
I can confirm with certainty that the said investor died intestate, no next-of-kin to his estate 
and no body came forward all these years. I am of the settled conviction that using my insider 
leverage, I, working with you can secure the funds in the account for us 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, of course you shall be handsomely 
rewarded for your part in this transaction as me and my colleague are prepared to allocate a 20% of 
the total funds for your efforts.
Affirm your willingness and cooperation please,by replying me stating your FULL NAME, DATE OF 

I do expect you prompt response.
Thank you,
Mr. E. Tan.
