Dearest One, I am a Banker working under the Vaults Department of my bank. The Vaults Department is where vaulables are deposited for safe-keeping until the customers come to make claims of their deposits. To be precise, I work as an account officer to customers my bank see as special customers. One of these very important customers of my bank was a national of your country who lived in Bangkok, Thailand as an international business man. He (the citizen of your country) however committed suicide in Singapore while awaiting trial for drug trafficking. His death was a very big shock to my bank because no one believed that a young, intelligent and kind heart man would be involved in drug business. I personally doubted it at first, I had to travel to Singapore to comfirm the bitter truth. He died acutally, what a great loss. My immediate boss wants to claim this deposit promising to give me only 10% of this deposit if I help him. I have however made him understood that it is morally wrong to claim someone's deposit. The late young man did not put forward any beneficiary to the fund in case of an uncertainty like this which befell him and that is why my boss wanted to use the opportunity to make claims of this deposit. In cases like these, it is always the rule of my bank to take over deposits which have remained unserviceable without a beneficiary for more than a year. I am taking you to all these preambles because I want us ( me and you ) to make this claim immediately. I want more than just 10% of this fund and seeing my bank take it over without my having a share will be something to regret all my life. All I need from you is to accept doing this with me. I have all the documents which will be filed in your name to make you have this said deposit. You will face no risk in doing this with me. All I need is your acceptance and we will share this deposit equal. That is, you will have 50% and I will have the remaing half. This deposit a box containing (US$ 5m) five million United States Dollars. As the account officer, I was very friendly with the late depositor that he confided in me so well to the extent of telling me the content of his deposit. My bank and the depositor's names are withheld for now for security reasons. I encouarge you to take your time and think about this, if you can do it, write back giving me your full names, contact address and mobile number; and I shall give you details on how we will achieve this. Get back to me with this email: email@example.com Best regards, Boris J. Wicks. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: 0066-8732-12373
