From: Tony Hurley -

Good day,

I am Tony Hurley a staff of Brown Shipley Private Bank UK.I am
contacting you concerning a deceased customer and an investment he
placed under our banks management Four years ago.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 would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believed would
be of interest to you.In mid 2003 the deceased came to our bank and
deposited $15 Million USD, He directed that I liquidate the funds and
deposit it with a security firm.I contacted my affiliate and made the
funds available to the security firm. I undertook all the processes
and made sure I followed his precise instructions to the letter and
had the funds deposited with the security firm. The Security Firm is a
specialist private firm that accepts deposits from high net worth
individuals and blue chip corporations that handle valuable products
or undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash. This
small and highly private organization is familiar especially to the
highly placed and well-connected organizations. In line with
instructions, the money was deposited with the security firm. this
transpired around 25th of November 2003.In June last year, we got a
call from the security firm informing us about the inactivity of that
particular portfolio.

This was an astounding position as far as I was concerned, given the
fact that I managed the private banking sector I was the only one who
knew about the deposit at the security firm, and I could not
understand why the deceased had not come forward to claim his deposit.
I made futile efforts to locate the deceased. I immediately passed the
task of locating him to the internal investigations department of
Brown Shipley Bank Four days later, information started to trickle in,
apparently our client was dead.The bank immediately launched an
investigation into possible surviving next of kin to alert about the
situation and also to come forward to claim his estate. 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 line with our internal processes for account holders who
have passed away, we instituted our own investigations in good faith
to determine who should have right to claim the estate. This
investigation has for the past months been fruitfless. We have scanned
every continent and used our private investigation affiliate companies
to get to the root of the problem.

According to practice, The Security Firm will by the end of this
financial year broadcast a request for statements of claim to Brown
Shipley Private Bank failure to receive viable claims they will most
probably revert the deposit back to my bank.This will result in the
money entering the Brown Shipley Bank accounting system and the
portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking

My proposal; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct The
security 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 50/50.I
assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within few
days. There is a reward for this project and 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 bank. 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.

Please, again, note that I am a family man, I have a wife and
children. 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.

I await your response.kindly send response to

Tony Hurley
