Subject: INQUIRY

From: "Farouk Gilbert"<>

This email with the subject "INQUIRY" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 14 Aug 2014 01:54:24 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was "Farouk Gilbert"<>, although it may have been spoofed.


I hope this email gets to you this time as this is my third time of sending it? I have tried 
without success to locate your contact address and telephone number 
and I resorted to communicate with you via email which is an unconventional means of relaying an 
important message such as this. 
Kindly accept my sincere apology if my email violates your message reception standards since you 
were not notified previously about this inquiry.

My name is Farouk Gilbert, I am an attorney and a private investigator. We are presently conducting 
a standard process investigation and recommendation exercise 
on behalf of Credit Suisse Uk, a financial investment arm of Credit Suisse Group. This 
investigation is in respect of a deceased customer who shares the same 
surname with you including circumstances surrounding his huge financial investments.

However, you may be interested to know that I got your impressive information after a very 
conscious search online for a suitable successor to the deceased customer 
and I have decided to contact you before concluding my investigation.

The customer died intestate and nominated no successor in title over the huge financial investments 
he made at Credit Suisse Group and we have been assigned
to recommend a beneficiary to secure his lodgment before the bank gets it confiscated in the next 
20 working days.

The essence of this message is to request you to provide answers/comments on any or all of the four 
questions below:

1. Are you aware of any relative or extended family of yours born on the 17th of February 1946 who 
shares the same surname with you and whose last 
known location was England ?

2. Are you aware of any reasonable financial investments made by this person at Credit Suisse Uk, a 
financial investment arm of Credit Suisse Group?

3. Could you establish beyond reasonable doubt your eligibility to assume status of successor in 
title to the deceased if you are legally recommended to the Bank ?

4. Would you advance a substantial part of the funds as donations to charity if you are eventually 
approved by the bank as the lodgment beneficiary ?

Your answers to the questions above would help to determine our recommendation to Credit Suisse UK 
towards legally appointing you to inherit this 
investment fund after previously certified investigation by the bank had yielded negative results 
that there was no known relation to the deceased customer.

Be advised that we are constrained at this point from giving you detailed information concerning 
the investigation process for security reasons.

I would provide you with additional information on receipt of your response.

Thank you for accommodating our inquiry.

Yours Faithfully,

Farouk Gilbert.

Note: Please do not respond to this INQUIRY if you have no idea of the above specified questions.
