From: Mr.Tan Bae
Date: 6th September 2006
My name is Mr.Tan Bae. I trained and work as an external auditor for the United Overseas Bank (UOB) of Singapore, working as part of a bigger team that covers the entire Asian region. I had taken pains to find your contact through personal endeavors.
On routine audit check last month, I discovered some investment accounts that had been dormant for the least twelve years. All the accounts belong to a single holder with monies totaling a little above $12.8 million United States Dollars plus interest. Banking regulation/legislation in Singapore 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 proposing.
My investigation of the said account reveals that died in 1994-the exact time the account was last operated. I can confirm with certainty that the said investor died interstate and no next-of-kin 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 unclaimed funds into the coffers of the Government of Singapore.
This is especially possible as you bear the same LAST NAME to the said investor. This exactly is why I crave your participation and co-operation. I have seized all relevant documents (legal and Banking) that will facilitate our putting you forward as the claimant and 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 are prepared to allocate a 20% slice! of the total funds for your effor Be assured that my colleagues and I are on top of the situation all the time and there will be no risk 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.
To maintain the level of security required to see this transaction come to a successful conclusion, I have intentionally left out the finer details. To affirm your willingness and cooperation to my proposal please do so by email, stating your Full Names, Date of Birth, Telephone Number, Faxes Number, Company/position held, Email address and Postal address.
I do expect you prompt response.
Thank you, Mr.Tan Bae
