My Dear Friend
Gerhard Philip <firstname.lastname@example.org>
My Dear Friend,
I am writing you in my private capacity .My name is Gerhard Philip; I am a senior partner in the Technical Advisory Board of Allied Irish Bank Group (Senior Security Specialist). I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail private and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail.
We conducted a standard process investigation on behalf of "AIB Group", the International Banking conglomerate. This investigation involved a client who shares the same surname with you and also the circumstances surrounding investments made by this client at"AIB Group", the Private Banking arm of Allied Irish Bank. The client died in testate and nominated no successor in title over the investments made with the bank.
I contact you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this communication. I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you. You share similar details to the late fellow; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct the firm to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, 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 60/40.
You with the same surname as the depositor's would easily pass as the beneficiary with right of claim. I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within few working days. I 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.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 once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by, for once; I have found myself in total control of my destiny.
I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life. Let’s share the blessing.
If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through my email account below. If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion.
I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, 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. Please kindly respond to my direct email address:
