Hello, My name is Mr. Mike Liang. I trained and work as an external auditor for the Development Bank of Singapore (D.B.S). Working as part of a bigger team that covers the entire Asia region. I have taken pains to find your contact through personal endeavours. On routine audit check last month, I discovered some investment accounts that have been dormant for the last thirteen (13) years, all the accounts belonging to a single holder with monies totaling ($21.1 Million United States Dollars). Banking regulation/legislation in Singapore 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 proposal. My investigations of the said account reveals that the investor died in 1995 the exact time the account was last operated, I can confirm with certainty that the said investor died intestate 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, working with you can secure the funds in the account for us instead of allowing it pass as an unclaimed fund into the coffer Court s of the Singapore Government. This exactly is why I crave your participation and co-operation. I have seized all relevant documents (Legal and Banking) that will facilitate my 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 with 30% compensation from the total funds for your efforts, less any expenses. 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 am on top of the situation. There will be no risk involved 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. I guarantee that the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect all from any bridge of law. To affirm your willingness and cooperation to my proposal please contact me through fax or email stating the followings: (1) Full Name: (2) Telephone and Fax Number: (3) Postal Address: (4) Occupation: Your prompt response will be highly appreciated. Kind Regards, Mr. Mike Liang ---------------------------------------------------------------- This message was sent using IMP, the Internet Messaging Program.
