This email with the subject "Private & Confidential." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Tue, 08 Aug 2006 06:53:59 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was "Mrs. Maureen Foley" <>, although it may have been spoofed.

My name is Mrs. Maureen Foley. I trained and work as an external auditor for the International 
Financial Services Ltd for Anglo Irish Bank. Working as part of a bigger team that covers the 
entire Republic of Ireland region. I have taken pains to find your contact through personal 

On routine audit check last month, I discovered some investment accounts that has been dormant for 
the last twelve(12) years. All the accounts belonging to a single holder with monies totalling a 
little above ($17.1 Million United States Dollars) plus interest. Banking regulation/legislation in 
Ireland demand that I notify the fiscal authorities after a statutory time period of twelve years 
when dormant accounts of this type are called in by the monetary regulatory bodies. The above set 
of facts underscores my reason of writing and making the following proposal.

My investigations of the said account reveals that 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 
no next–of–kin to his estate has been found or has come forward all these years.

I am of the settled conviction that using my insider leverage, I, working with you can secure the 
funds in the account for us instead of allowing it pass as an unclaimed funds into the coffers of 
the Irish Government. This is especially possible as you bear the same LAST NAME to the said 
investor, and can stand as his extended relative. This exactly is why I crave your participation 
and co-operation.

I have seized all relevant documents (Legal and Banking) that will facilitate our putting you 
forward as the claimant/beneficiary of the funds and ultimately transfer the money to any account 
nominated by you. Of course you shall be handsomely rewarded for your part in this transaction as 
the people I am working with have agreed to allocate a 30% of the total funds for your efforts, 
less any expenses.

I shall however leave out the finer details of this transaction till I receive an affirmation of 
your desire to participate.

Be assured that me and my colleagues are on top of the situation.
There will be no risk involved whatsoever if you agree to come on board. Needless to say, UTMOST 
CONFIDENTIALITY is of vital importance if we are to successfully reap the immense benefits of this 

To maintain the level of security required to see this transaction come to a successful conclusion, 
I have intentionally left out the finer details.

To affirm your willingness and cooperation to my proposal, please contact me through telephone, fax 
or email stating the followings:

(1) Full Name;

(2) Telephone and Fax Number;

(3) Postal Address

(4) Occupation;

(5) Date of Birth;

Your prompt response will be highly appreciated.
