Dear ,

My name is Mrs. Sharon O船onovan. I trained and work as an external auditor for the International 
Financial Services Ltd. Working as part of a bigger team that covers the entire Republic of Ireland 
region. I have taken pains to find your contact through personal endeavours. 

On routine audit check last month, I discovered some investment accounts that has been dormant 
belonging to my late client,for the last twelve(12) years. All the accounts belonging to a single 
holder with monies totalling a little above ($17.1 Million United States Dollars) plus interest. 
Banking regulation/legislation in Ireland 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 1993葉he exact time the 
account was last operated, I can confirm with certainty that the said investor died interstate and 
no next撲f北in to his estate has been found or has come forward all these years. I am of the 
settled conviction that using my insider leverage, I, working with you can secure the funds in the 
account for us instead of allowing it pass as an unclaimed funds into the coffers of the Irish 
Government. This is especially possible as you bear the same LAST NAME to the said investor, and 
can stand as his extended relative. This exactly is why I crave your participation and 
I have seized all relevant documents (Legal and Banking) that will facilitate our 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 as 
the people I am working with have agreed to allocate a 30% of 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 me and my colleagues are 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.
