Perhaps a family member in Singapore. 
A family member of yours (perhaps) in Singapore died twelve years ago leaving behind an 
estate/capital (US$18.9M with interest) in a bank here where I work, till date nobody has come 
forward or put application for the claim. During the bank private search for the relative recently 
your name and email contact was among the findings that matches the same surname as the decease 
(name WITHELD for security reason) who died interstate with no Will or next of kin. 
To maintain the level of security required I have intentionally left out the final details. I urge 
you to come forward since I can provide you with the details needed for you to claim the 
estate/capital so that I can be gratify by you, in this way $7,560,000.00  for you and 
$11,340,000.00  for me and my colleagues that will do all the crucial part in the bank to have the 
claim release to you promptly. To affirm your willingness and cooperation please do so by replying 
me at my private email ( stating your FULL NAME, DATE OF BIRTH, TELEPHONE 
I do expect you prompt response.
