Dear Sir , I am Rau Benette, I work as the Fund Executive Manager with HSBC wealth and Investment Management UK, the world leading Investment & Fund Management Institution based in United Kingdom, Ireland/Channel Island. I have an investor under my portfolio with a closing balance of12.5 Million Euros in fixed deposit.who died on March 22, 2003 in the line of duty when two Royal Navy Sea King helicopters collided over the northern Arabian Gulf at around 1.30am in Bagdad Iraq.Some time ago a lot of money in various currencies were discovered in some barrels during his service in Bagdad in Iraq during a rescue operation, he happens to be one of the soldiers that lead that operation that day, and as the first person to discover the money.So he kept Twelve Million Five Hundred Thousand Euros( 12,500 Million) out of the money for himself before informing the rest of the troop. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm leaving no WILL or AUTHORIZATION for Re-transfer of his investment and its proceeds to the INHERITOR. I have personally carried out an investigation on the subject matter that took me 12 months to finalize and was made to understand that the family or relatives of the investor knows nothing about his investment with HSBC and none have any records of all his deposits with us, thereby creating an avenue for claiming of the said funds with its accrued interest on presentation of a trustworthy person that can stand as the INHERITOR to the deceased.If you are interested I can present you as the INHERITOR with proper documentation that will qualify you to have the funds claimed and on doing this, our establishment will not question the release of the funds to you as I will make sure that we comply with the banking laws and ethics of claiming the investment in our establishment. Our sharing ratio will be equal and we will set aside 1% as contingency/miscellaneous.Please contact me for more details if interested and reply on my personal email account.(email@example.com ) Looking forward to hearing from you shortly. Rau Benette
