Hello dear,I am James Hartop. Managing Director/Head of Coverage and Advisory at UBS AG, Investment Bank London UK. I have a business proposal that will be of immense benefit to both of us. I discovered an abandoned sum of 22.3 Million British Pounds Sterling in an account that belonged to our foreign deceased customer, a billionaire Business Mogul Late Mr. Moises Saba Masri, who was a victim of a helicopter crash on January 10th 2010 resulting to his death and his entire family members.
Mr Masri has no beneficiary and this money has been in his account for over four years. The funds will be moved to the British Treasury and confiscated if no beneficiary is presented by the end of the year. I propose a partnership consent to present you as the legal beneficiary to Mr Masri's estate so that the proceeds of his bank account can be paid to you after taxes have been deducted.
Using my contacts in the British banking and legal sector, dedication and team work, we can successfully transfer the inheritance fund to your designated bank account without any breach of the law. With my expertise in the banking sector and connections in the British legal system, i can provide legal and financial documents that will certify you as the legitimate beneficiary of Mr Masri’s estate.
After going through a methodical search, i decided to take the risk and contact you hoping that you will not betray my trust or expose this confidential information. On your confirmation of this message and indication of interest, i will provide you with detailed information and step by step modalities which this deal will be successfully carried out.
With best regards James William Hartop, UBS AG, Investment Bank 1 Finsbury Avenue, London EC2M 2PP, United Kingdom. www.ubs.com ---------------------------------------------------------------- This message was sent using IMP, the Internet Messaging Program.
