Hello ,
My name is Mr Lee Francis and I work as an Account portfolio Manager in the Asset Management 
Department of a financial institution based in South-East Asia. I have managed a certain account 
for a Resident Foreigner here in South-East Asia who unfortunately died leaving in our care a 
fairly huge amount of money in a Domiciliary United States Dollars Account.

We had unsuccessfully tried to make contact with any relatives of this client over the last couple 
of  months but exhaustive inquiries is limited by our professional ethics which obligates us to act 
with extreme caution and confidentiality when dealing with clients Accounts of this type. This has 
made it impossible to get round the problem of identifying a next-of kin in this situation.

I URGENTLY require your assistance in securing the money left behind by my client as any time from 
now it may be declared unserviceable and consequently confiscated by the Monetary Authorities. 

Indeed a  MANDATORY NOTICE has been issued demanding us to provide (before the expiration of this 
last quarter 2010) a next-of-Kin to my client's Account or have same reserved to the protection of 
the ASEAN Monetary Authorities. 

I contacted you because as a foreigner, it will be easy to establish you a business partner and 
next of kin of my late client. At this, it is easy to put up claim over this money, which I am the 
manager in control and know how to direct the claim to go fast and in favor and approval to your 
name. I shall provide to you all related information incase the bank make any inquiry or have any 
interview with you physically or over the phone or email. I shall declare however you want the bank 
to communicate with you at your convenience means.

Having satisfied all legal requirements of Beneficiary/next-of-Kin Notification over the past two 
years, I am convinced that no one will turn up to lay claim to this funds, hence I write to seek 
your consent to put you forward and present you as the next-of  Kin of my deceased client since you 
bear same last name so that proceeds from  his fixed deposit account (Valued conservatively at 
Twenty one Million, Three Hundred and Twenty Thousand United States Dollars) can be paid into an 
account to be provided by your good-self preferably outside England through our financial 

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 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. Do get back to me through my personal e-mail 

On receipt of your response, I shall furnish you with greater details of this transaction. I will 
not reveal to you now the bank until we have resumed communication. This is for my safety and 
security reasons. Be assured that I can not do anything to implicate you or myself in this 
transaction. I know the processes and protocols required for smooth execution of this kind of 
transaction. This is my opportunity for a good reward for many years of working in the banking 

Your sincerely.

Lee Frank.
