Dear Sir/ Madam,
My name is Mrs. Helen McMahon; I work as an external auditor for the United Overseas Bank (UOB) 
Vancouver, Canada. Working as part of a bigger team, that covers the entire Canadian region. I have 
taken pains to find your contact through personal endeavours. 
On routine audit check last month, I discovered an investment account that has been dormant for the 
last Sixteen (16) years. The account belongs to one man with monies totalling ($27.1 Million United 
States Dollars). This set of facts is my reason for writing and making the following proposal to 
you. 
 
The investor died in 1993-the exact time the account was last operated, I can confirm with 
certainty that the said investor died interstate and none of his next-of-kin was found or has come 
forward all these years. I am of the settled conviction that using my insider leverage and working 
with you can secure the funds in the account for the both of us and can be used for charity 
purposes, helping the needy instead of allowing it pass as an unclaimed fund for the Authorities to 
share themselves. It is 100% possible as you bear the same LAST NAME to the late investor and can 
stand as his extended relative. 
This is exactly why I need your participation and co-operation in this matter.
  
I have seized all relevant documents (Legal and Banking) that will facilitate my putting you 
forward as the claimant/beneficiary of the funds and ultimately transfer the money to any account 
nominated by you any where in the World. 
Your SHARE for this claim will be 40% from the total fund for your co-operation. 
I shall however leave out the details of this transaction till I receive an affirmation of your 
desire to participate with me.
Be assured that I am on top of the situation. There will be NO risk involved whatsoever if you 
agree to come on board. 

This should be kept as UTMOST CONFIDENTIAL between us.

I guarantee that the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect 
you and me from any breach of law. 
To affirm your willingness and cooperation to my proposal please contact me through fax or email 
stating the followings:

(1) Full Name; (2) Telephone, Fax, and Mobile Numbers; (3) Postal Address: 

Your prompt response will be highly appreciated. 

Kind Regards, 
Mrs. Helen McMahon

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
