Dear Friend,
Good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life. I would respectfully request that you keep the content of this mail confidential because of its nature and respect the integrity of this information. First of all I'll like to introduce myself and status, I am Mr.Richard Mariner Weeks, Chief Operations Officer of  HSBC Bank London. I am contacting you concerning a deceased customer and a financial portfolio of $18.5m United state dollars, which He placed under HSBC Bank managements two years ago for turn over on his behalf.
As the Chief Operations Officer of the private banking sector, I encouraged the deceased on his arrival to our bank on various growth of fund with prime ratings.The favored route in my advice to his was accessing data's on 6000 traditional stocks and bond managements.Based on my advise, attractive margins,acquired profit and interest stood at over $20m United state dollars,this margin was not the full potential of the fund but He desired low risk guaranteed returns on investment. Early 2009 my client asked that the money be liquidated because of an urgent investment requiring cash payments in United Kingdom, and that the liquidated fund be deposited in CORPORATE SECURITIES CO, a security consulting firm based in London who are specialist private firm that accepts deposits from high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations that handle valuable products and undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash. This order was given to me in anticipation of his arrival from
United States later that existence of the deposit, for as far as HSBC Bank is concerned the transaction with our late client concluded when I sent the fund to the security firm, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are just customer service and due process. The security firm has no single idea of what the history or nature of the deposit is, they await instructions to release the deposit to any party that I nominate as the beneficiary of the fund. I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct Corporate Securities Co. to release the deposit to you as the NEXT OF KIN. Kindly let me know your true interest in this pending transaction so as to ascertain the proceeds, and I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within few days. I implore you to discard this mail if you find no interest in this transaction, and if my offer is of no appeal to you, please don't be vindictive and destructive just delete this message and forget I ever contacted you.
Finally, I am sending you this mail without a measure of fear as to what the consequences are, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never comes in a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence in you, if we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting soon.
I await your response.
