Masasuke Okumura
Lloyds TSB Pacific Limited
Japan Branch

Thank you for giving me your time. Please be patient and read my email to

I am a staff of Lloyds TSB Group attached in Private Banking services. I am
contacting you concerning a customer and, an investment placed under our
banks management 4 years ago, I contacted you independently of our investigation
and no one is informed of this communication and I would like
to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest
to you.

In 2002, the subject matter; ref: bb/tsb/bank/74 came to our bank to engage in
business discussions with our Private Banking Services Department. He informed
us that he had a financial portfolio of 8.35 million United States Dollars,
which he wished to have us turn over 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 Services Department,
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 advice to customers
is to start by assessing data on 600 traditional stocks and bond managers
and alternative investments. Based on my
advice, we spun the money around various 0pportunities and made attractive
margins for our first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest
stood at this point at over 10 million United States Dollars, this margin
was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed
returns on investments. In mid 2003, he asked that the money be liquidated
because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash payments in
Europe. He directed that I liquidate the funds and had it deposited with
a firm in Europe. I informed him that our bank would have to make special
arrangements to have this done and in order not to circumvent due process,
the bank would have to make a 9.5 % deduction from the funds to cater for
banking and statutory charges. He complained about the charges but later
came around when I explained to him the complexities of the task he was
asking of us. Cash movement across borders has become especially strict
since the incidents of 9/11.

I contacted my affiliate in Europe and had the funds available in main land
Europe. I undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise
instructions to the letter and had the funds deposited in a security consultancy
firm, the 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. He 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 February 2004. In June last year, we got a call from the security
firm informing us of 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, and I could not understand why he had not come
forward to claim his deposit. I made futile efforts to locate him I immediately
passed the task of locating him to the internal investigations department
of our bank. Four days later, information started to trickle in, that he
was apparently dead.

A person who suited his description was declared dead of a heart attack in
Cannes, South of France. We were soon enough able to identify the body and
cause of death was confirmed.

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 the field of private banking, opening an account with us means no
one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors
use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous.

This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to
them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of
the account and as I said, rarely do they nominate next of kin. Private
banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also usually in most
cases leave wills in our care, in this case; he died in testate.

What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical practice but I want you
to understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who
finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world
of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who
occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. You should have begun
by now to put together the general direction of what I propose.
There is
US$ 8,370,000.00 deposited, I alone have the deposit details and they will
release the deposit to no one unless I instruct them to do so. I alone know
of the existence of this deposit for as far as the finance firm, the transaction
with our deceased customer concluded when I sent the funds to the firm,
all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are just customer services
and due process. The finance firm has no single idea of what's the history
or nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting
instructions to release the deposit to any party that comes forward.

This is the situation. This bank has spent great amounts of money trying to
track this man's family; they have investigated for months and have found
no family. The investigation has come to an end. My
proposal; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct the finance
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 in half
and no more. 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 would have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would have
drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in claiming the deposit.
But on the other hand, you as a foreigner and also with all the necessary
legal and official documentations from me and the presiding
attorney and also with the authority vested upon me by the original depositor,
you would easily pass as the beneficiary with the rights to claim. I assure
you that I could have the deposit released to you in a few days. I will
simply inform our bank of the final closing of the file relating
to the customer. I will then officially communicate with the finance company
and instruct them to release the deposit to you.

With these two things: all is done. The alternative would be for us to have
the firm direct the funds to another bank with you as account holder.This
way there will be no need for you to think of receiving the money from
the firm. We can fine-tune this based on our interactions. I am aware of
consequences of this proposal. I ask that if you find no interest in this
project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive
or destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message
and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do
not approve of my proposal. You may not know this but people like myself
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
ones' way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by I hope
you understand because for once I found myself in total control and face
to face with my destiny. These chances won't pass me by. I ask that you
do not destroy my chance, if you will
not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not
destroy me. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them
with new opportunities. 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 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 this
email account:

If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a

Please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again, note I am a
family man; I happily married with two kids. I send you this mail not without
a measure of fear as to what the consequences might be, 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.
I await your response.
