Kind Attention,

 My name is Mr. Jon Marc. I am trained and work as an external auditor for the Westpac Banking 
Corporation, London, working as part of a bigger team that covers the entire Asian region. I had 
taken pains to find your contact through personal endeavors.

On routine audit check last month, I discovered some investment accounts that had been dormant for 
the last twelve years (Three tenors of four years each). All the accounts belong to a single holder 
with monies totaling a little above $13.6 million United States Dollars plus interest. Banking 
regulation/legislation in London 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 proposing.

My investigations of the said account reveals that the investor (the country he came from) 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 unclaimed funds into the 
coffers of the Government of London. This is especially possible as you bear the same LAST NAME 
(Hirayama) to the said investor. 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 are prepared to allocate a 20% 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.

Be assured that I and my colleagues are on top of the situation all the time and there will be no 
risk 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 transaction.

To maintain the level of security required to see this transaction to come to a successful 
conclusion, I have intentionally left out the finer details. To affirm your willingness and 
cooperation to my proposal please do so by email stating your full name, date of birth, telephone 
number, fax number. I do expect you prompt response. Feel free to write back to me on:

Thank you,

Mr. Jon Marc
