Dear Friend,
Good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the
 center of relevance in my life. I would respectfully request that you
 keep the content of this mail confidencial because of its nature and
 respect the integrity of this information. First of all I'll like to
 introduce myself and status, I am Thomas Williams, staff of
 Private Banking at HSBC Bank London. I am contacting you concerning a
 deceased customer and a financial portfolio of $8.5m United state
 which he placed under HSBC Bank managements two years ago for turn
 over on his behalf.
As the Chief Operations Officer of the private banking sector, I
 encouraged the deceased on his arrival to our bank on various growth
 of fund
 with prime ratings.The favoured route in my advice to him was
 datas on 6000 traditional stocks and bond managements.Based on my
 advise, attractive margins accrued profit and interest stood at over
 United state dollars,this margin was not the full potential of the
 but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investment. Early 2004
 client asked that the money be liquidated because of an urgent
 investment requiring cash payments here in United Kingdom, and that
 liquidated fund be deposited in CORPORATE SECURITIES CO, a security
 consulting firm based in London who are specialist private firm that
 deposits from high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations
 handle valuable products and undertake transactions that need
 access to cash. This order was given to me in anticipation of his a
 rrival from Norway later that week, this was the last communication we
 had. Sometimes this year I got a call from CORPORATE SECURITIES CO.
 informing me of the inactivity of the portfolio, since I was the only
 one who
 knew about the deposit, I immediatly passed the task of locating my
 client to the Internal Investigation Department of HSBC, which now
 revealed that the person who suited his description was decleared dead
 of a
 Heart attack in Canne, South of France. And in line with banking
 internal processes for account holders who have passed away, an
 was meant to be launched to contact a possible surviving NEXT OF KIN
 come forward as beneficiary of the fund but unfortunatly when my
 client came petronizing our services, in his bio-data form, no next of
 was listed neither was there a TESTATE. My client only used numbers
 codes to make the account he opened with us anonymous. At this
 juncture, i'll like to unravel the true position of this transaction,
 SECURITIES CO,has requested for statements of claim from me, and I
 alone knows of the existence of the deposit, for as far as HSBC Bank
 concerned the transaction with our late client concluded when I sent
 fund to the security firm, all outstanding interactions in relation to
 the file are just customer service and due process. The security firm
 has no single idea of what the history or nature of the deposit is,
 await instructions to release the deposit to any party that I nominate
 as the beneficiary of the fund. You share similar details to the late
 fellow, I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct Corporate
 Securities Co. to release the deposit to you as the NEXT OF KIN Let me
 know your true interest in this pending proposal so as to ascertain
 proceeds, and I assure you that I could have the deposit released to
 you within few days. I implore you discard this mail if you find no
 interest in this proposal, and if my offer is of no appeal to you,
 dont be vindictive and destructive just delete this message and forget
 ever contacted you.
Finally, I am sending you this mail 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 on a platter of
This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients.
 Do not betray my confidence, if we can be of one accord, we should
 a meeting soon.
I await your response.
Thomas Williams
