Top of the day to you, I hope this correspondence reach you in good health.
I must first crave your indulgence as the contents of this correspondence may not meet your personal or business ethics. I apologize in advance.
I am Paul Winfield, I presently head the London branch of the investment division of Bank of Ireland, Isles Of Man, The main purpose of this correspondence is to intimate you of a possible joint business venture.
In the course of our yearly audit, we came across a fixed deposit account of US$7,600,000.00 (Seven Million, Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) only that has been rolled over for the past four years.
Further investigation revealed that the said fixed deposit belonged to South Korean (Name with-held for the time being). Going through his bio-data form, we discovered that the only contact written by him was that of his personal lawyer. Correspondence between both of us revealed that the depositor had passed on and the lawyer is the executor of his will. Further prodding from me also revealed that the will made no mention of the deposit being held in our bank.
After careful deliberations, the lawyer and I have decided to find a means of keeping this fund for ourselves. The lawyer proposed that he write a letter to our bank in his official capacity as the lawyer and executor of the will to have our bank transfer the funds a third party we will both nominate.
The lawyer has agreed I should look for the third party and he will facilitate the paperwork for this claim with your active participation.
All I need is your consent to act as the third party and I will put all relevant information at your disposal and discuss your remuneration for this endeavour.
Should this proposal be of interest to you, please indicate your interest via a return mail to enable me put more information at your disposal.
I remain obliged.
