822. Dr. Steven Baker
Subject: I want to present you?

Dear Sir,

I choose to reach you through this medium because it is the fastest and most reliable way of communication, as I wish to solicit for your urgent assistance in what I strongly believe will be of great benefit to both of us.

I am Dr, Steven Baker an Accounts Manager with Shanghai Commercial Bank in London. The issue I am presenting to you a case of one of my late customer, a national of your country who died in an unknown circumstance leaving an unclaimed treasury bills (Bonds) with my bank.

In 1997, my late customer invested in treasury bill bonds here in my bank in London totaling 8.2 million pound sterling (£8,200,000.00) which was due to be collected in 2004 with accrued dividends.

On my yearly appraisal of my customers at the turn of every year, I discovered that this fixed deposit remained overdue for retrieval. I had put up series of mails and bank notifications to him which were sent back uncollected. I later discovered that he passed on along with his wife and only child in the tragic swissair flight 111 air crash in september 1998.

Since his death in 1998, I have managed his account expecting any of his extended relatives to come forward to claim his money but all attempts to trace his relatives over the years has been fruitless since he did not declare any of his relatives information in his banking records with us. Added to this, professional ethics obligates us.

According to the United Kingdom banking law, the money will be bequeathed to the government if it remains unclaimed by next month. However, I dont belong to that school of thought which proposes that the fortunes of unlucky people be given to the government and I am fully convinced that no one would turn up to execute the letter of administration to claim his funds before next month.

Hence, I decided to contact you to come in as the next of kin to my late customer so that the funds totalling 8,200,000.00 can then be transferred to you as inheritor within 5 working days after we have filed in your claims transfer application to the bank.

I will prepare every operation that will assist you to claim the funds as the next of kin and everything will be left between you and me. The share would be 40% for you and 60% for me.

Again, I feel that you may be apprehensive and consider this amount too big for you to defend. It does not matter, as there are documents to back it up.This transaction is risk free and as the most senior account manager with the bank be rest assured that all documents to enable you get this fund as the next of kin will be carefully worked out by me. Do not be bothered that you are not related in any way to my late customer as I am in position to affix your name as the next of kin.

Kindly send your reply to enable me talk to you before I send you the documents and other relevant information relating to this fund transfer.

I need not emphasize the confidentiality of this issue and I therefore appeal to you not discuss this request with anybody, even if you decline to take full advantage of this great and urgent opportunity in my bank.

I look forward to your quick reply.

Dr, Steven Baker
