BANK. I am writing you this letter based on the latest development at my
bank, which I will like to bring to your personal edification.  I am a top
official in charge of client accounts in (EQUITABLE PCI BANK) which is now
BANCO DE ORO UNIVERSAL BANK inside the Philippines the merger was (2007)
The merger is part of a long-term goal of Banco de Oro to become one of the
largest names in the Philippine banking industry. I am writing you this
letter with so much joy and excitement even though my heart goes out to the
very powerful and distinguished gentleman who I was fortunate to have
worked for and extremely privileged to have known for numerous years. 

I am a top official in charge of client accounts in (EQUITABLE PCI BANK)
which is now BANCO DE ORO UNIVERSAL BANK inside the Philippines. In 2001,
my client was going through a horrendous divorce in the United States of
America and was on the verge of losing most of his estate to his vicious
and diabolical wife. As a result of this alarming predicament, my client
came to me with a very brilliant idea. He transferred some funds, ten
million two hundred thousand dollars ($10.2m) to a fixed deposit  account
in my bank under an alias which only the two of us knew about as the
confidentiality of the matter was necessary for his protection. 

Due to his untimely death in early 2002, the funds have been sitting in
the account ever since and will continue to do so perpetually unless we do
something about it. This is where you come in. I located you through an
agency that helps seek people by their email. My client did not declare any
next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank
deposit. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I would like
you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to our client so that you
will be able to receive his funds. I want you to know that I have had
everything planned out so that we can come out successful. I have contacted
an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up
as the next of kin to my client. 

All that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with

A. Your complete Name
B. Residential address in your country
C. Scanned copy of your identification
D. Telephone Number

so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the
next of kin, the attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and
secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the
move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you. There is no
risk involved at all in the matter as we are going adopt a legalized method
and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. 

The allocation of our money will be as follows: 35%($3.570M) to you for
your part in this, 55% for me and my partners and 5% for any unforeseeable
expenses we may incur. I think this is extremely fair, as you have nothing
to lose but just a little time, while on the other hand I am staking my
flawless reputation among other things. And besides $3.570 million is no
pocket change. Once you are approved, the entire transaction should take no
longer than twelve business days after which we will go  about our daily
business, but just millions of dollars richer. 

As you can see this is easier than taking candy from a baby, but mind you,
trust is something that is developed over time and that is something that
we do not have. So I have to let you know that it will highly unfeasible to
try to run away with the money because even though only you can transfer
money in and out of your account, the transfer can only be authorized by my
department of which i happen to be the head. The money will be transferred
from my bank to an account you will provide. So please, there should be no
room for greed because ten million two hundred thousand dollars can quench
even the most insatiable desire for the almighty dollar. Again, I will be
in charge of everything else. 

I will assume all responsibilities for this endeavor so you don't have to
worry about any legal ramifications, just what you will do with all that
money. Your urgent response is highly anticipated so please email me
through this email address ( for more details
on this transaction as soon as possible. 

This should be kept very secret and confidential. 

I believe you know. 
Kind Regards, 
Mrs.Grace Aguilar
