Good day,

I am  Andrew Bailey  of International Private Banking at BANK OF 
ENGLAND(  I am contacting you concerning a 

customer and an investment he placed under our banks management three 
years ago. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of 
this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information 

come by as a result of this mail.I contacted you independently of our 
investigation and no one is informed of this communication. I would 

to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest 
to you. In 2000, the subject matter; came 
to our bank to engage in business discussions with our private banking 
division. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of eight 
million three hundred and fifty thousand united states dollars, which 

wished to have us turn over (invest) on his behalf. I was the 
officer assigned to his case;I made numerous suggestions in line with 
my duties as the de-facto chief operations officer of the private 
banking sector, especially given the volume of funds he wished to put 

our bank. We met on numerous occasions prior to any investments being 
placed. I encouraged him to consider various growth funds with prime 
ratings. The favored route in my advice to customers is to start by 
assessing data on 6000 traditional stocks and bond managers and 2000 
managers of alternative investments. Based on my advice, we spun the 

around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our 
first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at 
this point at over ten million United States Dollars, this margin was 

the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk rantied returns 
on investments. In mid 2001, he asked that the money be liquidated 
because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash 
payments in here in the United Kingdom.He directed that I liquidate 

funds and deposit it with a security firm in here London. 

I informed him that HSBC would have to make special arrangements to 
have this done and in order not to circumvent due process, the bank 

have to make a 9.5 % deduction from the funds to cater for banking and 
statutory charges. He complained about the charges but 
later came around when I explained to him the complexities of the task 
he was asking of us. Cash movement across boarders has become 
especially strict since the incidents of 9/11. I contacted my 

affiliate in here 
in London and made the funds available to the security firm. I 
undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise 
instructions to the letter and had the funds deposited at the London 

security consultancy firm, Mayfair Securities Co. Mayfair Securities 

is a specialist private firm that accepts deposits from high net 
worth individuals and blue chip corporations that handle 
valuable products or undertake transactions that need immediate access 
to cash. This small and highly private organization is familiar 
especially to the highly placed and well-connected organizations. 

In line with instructions, the money was deposited with Mayfair 
Securities Co. The deceased told me he wanted the money there in 

of his arrival from Norway later that week. This was the last  
communication we had, this transpired around 25th February 2003.
In June last year, we got a call from Mayfair Securities Co informing 
us that the activity of that particular portfolio. This was an 
astounding position as far as I was concerned, given the fact that I 

managed the 
private banking sector I was the only one who knew about the deposit 

Mayfair Securities Co, and I could not understand why the deceased had 
not come forward to claim his deposit. I made futile efforts to locate 
the deceased. I immediately passed the task of locating him to the 
internal investigations department of Bristol & West. Four days later, 
information started to trickle in, apparently our client was dead. A 

who suited his description was declared dead of a heart attack in 
Cannes, South of France.We were soon enough able to identify the body 
and cause of death was confirmed. The bank immediately launched an 
investigation into possible surviving next of kin to alert about the 
situation and also to come forward to claim his estate. If you are 

with private banking affairs, those who patronize our 
services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment 
from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he listed no next 

kin. In the field of private banking, opening an account with us means 
no one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a 
name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts 
anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having 
their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that 

there are 
no traces of the account and as I said, rarely do they nominate next 

kin. Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin 

usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; the 
deceased died without a testate. In line with our internal processes 

account holders who have passed away, we instituted our own 

in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate. 
This investigation has for the past months been unfruitful. We have 
scanned every continent and used our private 
investigation affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem.

It is this investigation that resulted in my being furnished with your 
details as a possible relative of the deceased. My official capacity 
dictates that I am the only party to supervise the investigation and 

only party to receive the results of the investigation. 

What this means, you being the last batch of names we have considered, 
is that our dear late fellow died with no known or identifiable family 
member. This leaves me as the only person with the full picture of 

the prevailing situation is in relation to the deposit and the late 
beneficiary of the deposit. According to practice, Mayfair Securities 
Co will by the end of this financial year broadcast a request for 
statements of claim to Bristol & West, failing to receive viable 

claims they 
will most probably revert the deposit back to Bristol & West. This 

result in the money entering the Bristol & West accounting system and 
the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking 
division. This will not happen if I have my way. What I wish to relate 

you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to 
understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who 
finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The 

of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those 
who occupy 
certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. You should have begun 
by now to put together the general direction of what I propose. I 

have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one 
unless I instruct them to do so. I alone know of the existence of this 
deposit for as far as Bristol & West is concerned, the transaction 

our late customer concluded when I sent the funds to Mayfair 
securities, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are 
just customer services and due process. Mayfair Securities Co has no 
single idea of what the history or nature of the deposit. They are 
awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that comes 
forward. This is the situation. This bank has spent great amounts of 
money trying to track this man family; they have investigated for 
and have found no family. The investigation has come to an end. 

My proposal; you share similar details to the late fellow; I am 
prepared to place you in a position to instruct Mayfair Securities 
Company to 
release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation. Upon 
receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in
half. That is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have 
them release the deposit to you. We share the proceeds 50/50.I would 
have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would 

drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in claiming the 


I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within a 

days. I will simply inform the bank of the final closing of the file 
relating to the deceased I will then officially communicate with 
Securities Co and instruct them to release the deposit to you. With 
these two things: all is done. The alternative would be for us
to have Mayfair Securities Co direct the funds to another bank with 

as account holder. This way there will be no need for you to think of 
receiving the money from Mayfair Securities Co. We can fine-tune this 
based on our interactions. I am aware of the consequences of this 
proposal. I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you 
should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and 
destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message 
forget I ever contacted you. 

Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. 

may not know this but people like myself who have made tidy sums out 

comparable situations run the whole private banking sector. I am not a 
criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this
may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry 
dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come ones' way 
in a lifetime.
I cannot let this chance pass me by, for once I find myself in total 
control of my destiny. These chances won pass me by. I ask that you do 
not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know andlet 
move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man and this 
is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. 

There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth 
undertaking.I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here 

you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one 
knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name
that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life. Let 

the blessing. If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me 
through this same email account. If you give me positive signals, I 
initiate this process towards a conclusion. I wish to inform you that 
should you contact me via official channels; I will deny knowing you 
about this project. I repeat, I do not want you contacting me through 
my official phone lines nor do I want you contacting me through my 
official email account.

Contact me only through the numbers I will provide for you and also 
through this email address. I do not want any direct link between you 
me. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically 
monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total 
Quality Management Policy. Please observe this instruction 


Please, again, note I am a family man; I have a wife and children. I 
send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the 
consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing 
gained and 
that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This 
the one truth I have learnt from my private banking 
clients. Do not betray my confidence.If we can be of one accord, we 
should plan a meeting soon.

I await your response.
