Good day, My name is Mr.David Williams, I am a senior partner in the firm of Infinity Consultants "Private Investigators and Security Consultants". We are conducting a standard process investigation on behalf of "HSBC", the International Banking conglomerate. This investigation involves a client who shares the same surname with you and also the circumstances surrounding investments made by this client at "HSBC", the Private Banking arm of HSBC. The HSBC Private Banking client died intestate and nominated no successor in title over the investments made with the bank. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail private and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail. You share similar details to the late fellow; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct the firm to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you,that is, I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. We share the proceeds 50/50. I am aware of the consequences of this proposal.There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life. Lets share the blessing. If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through my email account below. If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion.
