Financial inquiry,

This is an unconventional way of relaying an important message such as this. I did try without success to locate both your contact address or fax number and as such, I resorted in contacting you via email. I am an associate partner in the firm of JH&W Consults Inc, in London, United Kingdom; we are a Private Investigators, Security Consultants and Financial Managers. We are conducting a standard process investigation/Recommendation on behalf of Union Credit Bank of United Kingdom (UCB), the United Kingdom Investment Banking Conglomerate thus will be referred to as our clients.

This investigation is about an account holder (Name Withheld). The Union Credit Bank Private Investment client died intestate and nominated no successor in title over his investment fund made at the bank amounting to 9,500,000.00 United States Dollars. The essence of this communication with you is to request that you provide us information/comments on any or all of the four issues as regards nominating you to inherit the fund left behind by this client. Your answers and response(s) to the questions raised below will determine our recommendation to the UCB towards legally appointing you to inherit this investment fund after certified investigation has yielded results showing that there is no known relation of the deceased client.

1-Are you aware of any relative/relation who bears your same surname whose last known contact address was United Kingdom or Southern Africa?
2-Are you aware of any investment of considerable value made by such a person at the Union Credit Bank of United Kingdom?
3-Can you confirm your willingness to claim this inheritance if you are legally and legitimately appointed.
4-Would you agree to donate part of this inheritance to charity if you are officially approved to stand as the inheritor?

It is pertinent that you inform us ASAP whether or not you are familiar with this personality or and your interest towards the issues mentioned. You must appreciate that we are constrained from providing you with more detailed information at this point. We will provide you with additional information upon receipt of your response.

Thanks for accommodating our inquiry.
