The sender was "Greg Miller" <email@example.com>, although it may have been spoofed.
My name is Steve Lowe. I trained and work as an external auditor for May Bank, working as part of a bigger team that covers the entire Asian region.. I had taken pains to find your contact through a colleague that is connected with your country`s chamber of commerce.
On routine audit check last year, I happened to find some investment accounts in the May Bank that had been dormant for over thirteen years. All the accounts belong to a single/ one account holder with monies totaling a little above 3.9 million United States Dollars. Further investigations of the said account reveal that the investor , had died in late 1992-the exact time the account was last operated. I also can confirm with absolute certainty that the said investor died interstate and no next -of -kin to his estate has been found or come forward all these years. Now, banking regulation/legislation here in Malaysia demand that I do notify the fiscal authorities of dormant accounts of this type Indeed after a statutory time span of fifteen years, dormant accounts of this type are called in as unclaimed monies by the Malaysia monetary regulatory bodies.
The above set of fact is the reason why I have contacted you. I am of the settled conviction that using our insider leverage, we (I am working on this with one other Auditor), working with you can secure the funds in this May Bank account for ourselves instead of allowing it pass as unclaimed funds into the coffers of the Government of Malaysia. This is especially possible as you bear the same LAST NAME() to the said investor.
Of course you shall be handsomely rewarded for your part in this transaction as the person I am working with is prepared to allocate a 30% slice of the total funds for your efforts.
I shall however leave out the finer details of this transaction till I receive an affirmation of your desire to participate. Rest assured that we are on top of the situation all the time and there will be no risk whatsoever if you elect to come on board. Needless to say though, UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY is of vital importance if we are to successfully reap the immense benefits of this transaction.
I shall furnish you with secure phone by which we shall communicate on getting a response from you with your reaching telephone numbers.
I do expect to hear from you.
