Dear Friend,

How are you today and business in your country? I am
Mr. Kato Yoshida, Bank Manager of Tokyo Mitsubishi ufj
Bank, Tokyo Branch. I would respectfully request that
you keep the contents of this mail confidential and
respect the integrity of the information you come by
as a result of this mail. I contacted you independently
of our investigation and no one is informed of this
communication. I know you would be wondering why
I am writing you with a request such as this but I only
urge you to read on.

Sometime in 1999, a certain consultant/contractor Mr.
Glen Hatleberg made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit
for twelve calendar months, valued at large amount
(Amount withheld for known reasons) in my branch. Upon
maturity, I sent a routine notification to his
forwarding address in America but got no reply. After
a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered
from his contract employers, the Japanese Solid
Minerals Corporation that Mr. Glen Hatleberg died
longside his wife, from an airplane crash.
Further proof of the death of Mr. Glen Hatleberg is in
the following web pages for you to make confirmations
and further research about his death:
If you are familiar with private banking affairs,
those who patronize our services usually prefer
anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from
conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he
listed no next of kin. In the field of private
banking, opening an account with us means no one will
know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under
a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the
accounts anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to
depositors of having their mail sent to them or held
at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces
of the account. Private banking clients apart from not
nominating any next of kin also usually in most cases
leave WILLS in our care, in this case; Mr. Glen
Hatleberg died intestate.

In line with our internal processes for account
holders who have passed away, my bank conducted a
search in good faith to determine who should have
right to claim the estate. This has for the past
months been unfruitful. This sum has since been
sitting in my bank and the interest is being rolled
over with the principal sum at the end of each year.
No one, it is evident is going to come forward for it.
According to the Laws of my environment, at the
expiration of 7(seven) years, the money will revert to
the ownership of the Japanese Government if nobody
applies to claim the funds. What I wish to relate to
you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to
understand something. It is only an outsider to the
banking world who finds the internal politics of the
banking world aberrational. The world of banking
especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who
occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios.
You should have begun by now to put together the
general direction of what I propose as I alone have
the deposit details and they will release the deposit
to no one unless evidence of relationship with the
deceased, which I shall provide you with, is
presented. I alone know of the existence of this
deposit for as far as the Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi is
concerned, the bank's management has no single idea of
the history or nature of the deposit. They are simply
awaiting instructions to release the deposit to the
party that comes forward. This is the situation. My
bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track
this man's family; they have investigated for months
and have found no relative. The investigation has come
to an end.

Consequently, what I propose is that I will like you
as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr.
Glen Hatleberg so that the fruits of this old man's
labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt
government officials. Acting in this capacity really
is simple as I will explain in detail to you when I
get your response. However, I wish to state that
because of my level of involvement, when you are
awarded the funds and it has been paid into your
account, it will be shared 60/30 between us and the
outstanding 10% for miscellaneous/incurred expenses.
Being aware of this request I am making, I ask that if
you find no interest in this project that you should
discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive
and destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you,
delete this message and forget I ever contacted you.
You may not know this but people like me who have made
tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole
private banking sector. I am not a criminal and what I
do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be
hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my
industry dictates that I make this move. Such
opportunities only come ones' way once in a lifetime.
If you will not work with me let me know and I will
move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a
family man and this is an opportunity to provide my
family with new opportunities. The reward for this
project makes 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 and alerting my

My position as the Branch Manager guarantees the
successful execution of this transaction. If you find
yourself able to work with me, I urge you to indicate
to that effect by contacting me through this
email address:mr_kato_yoshida@yahoo.com.hk
Upon your response, iffavorable, I shall then provide you with more
details and relevant information that will help you get full
understanding of this. I wish to inform you that
should you contact me via official channels; I will
deny knowing you and about this project. Contact me
only through the numbers I will provide for you and
also through this email address. I do not want any
direct link between you and me. My official lines are
not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to
assess our level of customer care in line with our
Total Quality Management Policy.

Please, again, note I am a family man; I have a wife
and children, but I know within me that nothing
ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches
never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the
one truth I have learned from my private banking
clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of
one accord, we should plan a meeting, soon.
In closing, please observe utmost confidentiality, and
be rest assured that this transaction would be most
profitable for both of us. After receiving your reply,
I will then furnish you with a more comprehensive
detail of this transaction and what is required.

Awaiting your urgent reply.

Yours Sincerely,
Mr. Kato Yoshida.
