Hello and Good day,

I am Mr.Rich Cole,

staff of Kleinwort Benson. 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 am contacting 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 the year 2002, 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 Six Million 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 then, 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 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 Two 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 Helsinki-
Finland. He directed that I liquidate the funds and deposit it with a
security firm. I informed him that my 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 boarders has become especially strict
since the incidents of 9/11.
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. 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 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 Kleinwort
Benson.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 canne, in Southern part of France.We were soon enough 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; the deceased died without a
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 present official capacity as the Head of Finance 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,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.
According to practice, The Security Firm will by the end of this financial
year broadcast a request for statements of claim to Kleinwort Benson,
failing to receive viable claims they will most probably revert the
deposit back to Kleinwort Benson.This will result in the money entering
the Kleinwort Benson accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my
hands and out of the private banking division.
This will not happen if I have my way. 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 that 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 Six Million dollars
deposited in a security firm, 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 my Bank is
The transaction with our late customer concluded when I sent the funds to
the security firm, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file
are just customer services and due process. The security Firm has no
single idea of whats the history or nature of the deposit. They are simply
awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that come
forward. This is the situation. This bank has spent great amounts of money
trying to track this mans family; they have investigated for months and
have found no family. The investigation has come to an end.
My proposal:I now seek your permission to present you as a next of kin to
the deceased, as all documentations will be carefully worked to make you
the beneficiary to the funds $6,000 000 00 (Six Million United states
Dollar) ; 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 60/40.I would have
gone ahead to ask that the funds be released to me, but that would have
drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in claiming the deposit.
I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within a few
days. I will simply inform Kleinwort Benson of the final closing of the
file relating to the deceased. I will then officially communicate with The
Security Firm 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
Security 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 Security Company. We can fine-tune this based on our interactions
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. I ask that you
do not be vindictive and 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, for once I find
myself in total control of my destiny. These chances wont 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
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 luck 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 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 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 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.
Kindly send your response to my private email:

I await your response.

Mr.Richard Cole.
