Good day,

I am Dan Clark,staff of International Private
Banking at HSBC Bank.I am contacting you concerning a
deceased customer and an investment he placed under
our banks management three 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 contacted 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.In 2001, the subject
matter;came to our bank to engage in business
discussions with our private banking division.He
informed us that he had a financial portfolio of 
eight million three hundred and fifty thousand  united states
dollars,which he wished to have us turn over (invest)
on his behalf.I was the  officer assigned to his case,
I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties
as the de-facto chief operations officer of the
private banking sector, especially given the volume of
funds he wished to put into our bank. We met on
numerous occasions prior to any investments being
placed. I encouraged him to consider various growth
funds with prime ratings. The favored route in my
advise to customers is to start by assessing data on
6000 traditional stocks and bond managers and 2000
managers of alternative investments. Based on my
advice, We spun the money around various opportunities
and made attractive margins for our first months of
operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at
this point at over ten million United States Dollars,
this margin was not the full potential of the fund but
he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments.

I followed his precise instructions to the
letter and had the funds deposited at the london based
security consultancy firm,Corporate Securities Co.
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 Corporate
Securities Co. The deceased told me he wanted the
money there in anticipation of his arrival from Norway
later that week. This was the last communication we
had,this transpired around 25th June 2003.

In June last year, we got a call from Corporate
Securities Co informing us that the activity 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 Corporate Securities Co,
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 HSBC. Four days later,information started 
to trickle in, apparently our client was dead. 
A person who suited his description was declared dead 
of a heart attack in Cannes, South of France.

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 unfruitful. We have scanned
every continent and used our private investigation
affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem.
It is this investigation that resulted in my being
furnished with your details as a possible relative of
the deceased. My official capacity dictates that I am 
the only party to supervise the investigation and the
only party to receive the results of the investigation.
What this means,you being the last batch of names we 
have considered, is that our dear late fellow died with
no known or identifiable family member. This leaves 
me as the only person with the full picture of what the
prevailing situation is in relation to the deposit and 
the late beneficiary of the deposit.

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 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. Lets share the blessing.If you find yourself
able to work with me, contact me through this same
email account. If you give me positive signals, I will
initiate this process towards a conclusion. I wish to
inform you that should you contact me via official
channels; I will deny knowing you and about this
project. I repeat, 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 me. My official lines
are not secure 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 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 learnt from my
private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence.
If we can  be of one accord, we should plan a meeting soon.

I await your response.

Dan Clark.
