Hello dear, RE: PLEASE PARTNER WITH ME IN THIS MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL AND PROFITABLE FINANCIAL PROJECT. I am a staff in one of the best frontline Global Assets Management Banks in , London and I am in the Funds/Assets Management and Administration section of this bank, where I handle the investments portfolios of some High Net-worth institutional and individual investors of the bank, worth billions of dollars/CHF. This London bank is a global Assets Management company with CHF 202.9 Billions portfolio as at 3oth June 2009 and has been in operation here in London , since 1967. In my position above, I have been able to accumulate $12,500,000 (Twelve point Five Million Dollars), which has been going into a special account in the bank known to me , but which I can not withdraw even a dime from, without a partner, or collaborator, hence my contacting you. Each year, every investor is guaranteed a target earning on his/her investments with the bank, which must be paid him whether the bank makes twice, or more the amount on the client’s portfolio, or even makes a loss overall, or goes into distress. Also the bank gives each investment /Fund Manager a target to meet for the year on each portfolio. By surpassing both the bank and investors’ targets on all the investments under my care/watch, year in and out, it then became possible for all extra profits I made on those portfolios to continuously accumulate straight into a special bank account which I have I set up within the same bank. It is the totality of these extra profits over the years that have amounted to the $12.5M now. It is in the light of the forgoing that I now graciously request you to pls partner with me, so that the $12.5m will be transferred to your bank account anywhere in the world, as a repatriation of proceeds from your supposed investments portfolio with the bank, under my control, even though you had no such investments ever. It will be my responsible to prepare all the necessary documents and have them properly filed in the bank under me, showing that you were indeed an investor, whose portfolio I have been managing for the bank, from where the said $12.5M has now become due. What is even most interesting is that you don’t need to personally, or physically come to London to conclude this project and the bank need not see you in person either. And you have very little role to play in the entire project, as everything will more or less be done in-house here in the bank. Also, in doing this project, we are cheating nobody, robbing nobody, breaking no law, committing no offence, but simply reaping the benefits of my hard works , productivity and industry here over the past years . There is no risk involved in it too. For partnering with me in this project, you will earn $4.0M (Four Million Dollars) as your compensation and commission upon the conclusion of the project. Pls let me hear from you by quick return e-mail first,at: email@example.com | if you are interested in this offer, or wish to discuss it further with me. Yours very sincerely, Mr. Michael Carlson.
