Good Day,

I am Robert Smoker, a staff of BROWN SHIPLEY PRIVATE BANK UK.I am
contacting you independently of my investigation and no one is
informed of this communication. I would like to intimate you with
certain facts that I believed would be of interest to you. 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 am contacting you in respect of US$10.5 Million deposited with our
private bank whose original depositor died in mid 2003,In line with
our internal processes for account holders who have passed away, we
instituted our own investigations in good fate to determine who should
have right to claim the estate. This investigation has for the past
years been unfruitful. We have scanned every continent and used our
private investigation affiliate companies to get to the root of the
problem. It is this investigation that resulted in my being furnished
with your details as a possible relative of the deceased. According to
practice, the bank will by the end of its financial year in 2007
broadcast a request for statements of claims, failing to receive
viable claims they will probably revert the deposit back to BROWN
SHIPLEY BANK. This will result in the money entering the BROWN SHIPLEY
BANK accounting system, this will not happen if I have my way, the
world of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for
those who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. As a
matter of fact, my present official capacity as the Head of private
banking sector dictates that I am the only party to supervise the
investigation which leaves me as the only person with the full picture
of what the prevailing situation is in relation to the deposit and the
beneficiary of the deposit.

My proposal: I am prepared to place you in a position to initiate the
release of the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation, upon
successful delivery of the deposit to you; 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
%.The alternative would be for us to have the bank BROWN SHIPLEY BANK
direct the funds to another bank with you as account holder. This way
there will be no need for you to think of receiving the money from the
bank. We can fine-tune this based on our interactions am aware of the
consequences of this proposal. 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.

My present official capacity as the Head of private banking sector I
assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within few
days. I shall validate the claim; make a customary writing report that
you are the Beneficiary. This report will validate the bonafide of
your claim and confirm you as the beneficiary and therefore entitled
to an allocation of Control Approval code for the release of the
deposit by the bank .once I validate the claim, the bank is bound to
approve same, this is why I have an unflinching confidence in the
safety of our arrangement. The transaction will be 100% legal. From
the foregoing, you are therefore able to appreciate why I have
hammered on the absolute necessity of our maintenance of
confidentiality of the project and the transfer even after we have
disbursed the money after arrival in your position. 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. I cannot let this chance pass me by, I am a family
man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities.
There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth
undertaking. I have evaluated the risk and the only risk I have here
is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the
only one who knows of this situation, if you find yourself able to
work with me, contact me through this email account. If you give me
positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. I
wish to inform you that should you contact me via official channels; I
will deny knowing you and about this project. I repeat, I do not want
you contacting me through my official phone lines nor do I want you
contacting me through my official email account. 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 myself. My
official lines are not secured lines as they are periodically
monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total
Quality Management Policy. Please observe this instruction religiously.

Thanks for your co-operation.
