PRIVATE/ CONFIDENTIAL Sir/Madam My name is Mr. Yun Wung. I work as an external auditor for the United Overseas Bank (UOB) Hong Kong. Working as part of a bigger team, that covers the entire Asia 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 five (5) years. The account belongs to a single holder 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 2004 the exact time the account was last operated, I can confirm with certainty that the said investor died intestate 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 through as an unclaimed fund for the Authorities to share within themselves. This is 100% possible as you bear the same LAST NAME to the late investor and can stand as his extended relative. This exactly is 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 Cell Phone Numbers (3) Postal Address(4) Occupation. Your prompt response will be highly appreciated. Kind Regards, Mr. Yun Wung Tel: +85281203158 Email: email@example.com
