With due respect, I got your contact with good profile in my search for a trustworthy person who will receive an unclaimed deposit that will be of immense benefit for both of us.
My name is Mr. Gibson Neil Benjamin. I am originally from United Kingdom, am currently working with HSBC Bank Argentina. I have been working with HSBC for 15 years and I have a good working record with my Bank.
I work in the Foreign Investments and Corporate Banking Department and I was the personal accountant to Mr. LAWTON ROBERT from Australia who was a foreign contractor with Oil Company called PETROBRAS Argentina SA.
It’s heartbreaking that my client Mr. LAWTON ROBERT and his wife Mrs. LAWTON CATHERINE were on board of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 that disappeared and crashed on the 8th of March 2014 killing everybody on board may their soul rest in perfect peace.
Before the tragic plane crash that took their lives, my client Mr. LAWTON ROBERT executed a contract with PETROBRAS Argentina SA and received a contract payment sum of Us$15, 500.000.00 (Fifteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) which he deposited into his trust account with my department.
For your confirmation, I have attached copies of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 passenger list which I got from Malaysia Airline office during my desperate search for my client and you can see the name of my client and his wife on the passenger list at number (64) LAWTON/CATHERINEMRS and (65) LAWTON/ROBERTMR for you to be very sure that my proposal is 100% truth and you can confirm this passenger list from any of the Malaysia Airline office in your country.
I am compelled to transfer this fund to you to share between us as equal beneficiaries because the Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained Unclaimed after six years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund and I feel it would not have been the last wish of my late client for his whole life work to be transferred into Government treasury which he had always complained of their unfavorable taxes while he was alive.
The fund can only be approved and transferred to a foreigner as his business partner hence I am seeking your permission to upload your name on my bank database stating that my client Mr. LAWTON ROBERT incorporated your name as his business partner to his account and transfer the fund to your designated bank account as equal beneficiaries and hence I work inside the bank this transaction is guaranteed.
All I require from you is honesty and I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. My only fear is for you to be honest to me that the fund will be safe in your account until my arrival in your country.
At the conclusion of this transaction, we may precede into Real Estate investment as equal partners because I will be visiting you shortly after you have received the fund into your bank account or we may share it in a ratio of 50% for your participation and 50% for me.
If you give me concrete promise that you will carry out this transaction with me and keep it as top secret, then I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. For you to know me better I am willing to send to you my International Passport to build confidence and mutual trust as soon as I get your positive response.
I am willing to send to you the account statement of my late client MR. ROBERT LAWTON with the available balance on the account as proof for you to see that the fund is available in the account. I anticipate your cooperation because such deal happens in the banking industry but only the outside world is not aware.
Please treat this proposal with utmost confidentiality and urgency for a 100% success because I believe that every accomplishment in life starts with the decision to try. I strongly believe that this transaction will bring a lasting relationship between us.
This transaction will be completed within 10 Bank working days if you follow my instructions and respond to my mail fast. I wait your urgent and positive response to proceed with the conclusion arrangements and wealth creations through partnership.
Regards in Sincerity,
