Good day, I am a private investment banker. I write you in respect of an investment made with our bank. We are conducting a standard process investigation in relation to matters involving a client of my bank. We have in our possession tentative evidence that you might be whom we seek. This is in reference to the circumstances surrounding the investments made by him at our bank. Our Private Banking client died intestate and nominated no next of kin to his investment. The essence of this communication is to request you to provide us information on three issues; 1- Are you aware of any relative/relation who shares your last name and whose last known contact address was in Haiti? 2- Are you aware of any investment of considerable value made by him at our bank in England? 3- If your answers to the above questions are yes, we can help establish your eligibility to assume status of next of kin to the deceased. It is pertinent that you inform me at your earliest convenience whether or not you are familiar with our deceased client and your eligibility, so we can put an end to our inquiries, surrounding this matter. You must appreciate that we are constrained from providing you with more detailed information at this point. Upon contact we will be able to verify and ascertain information which you have provided therein, allowing us to release the said Investment to you. Please contact me by electronic mail; email@example.com as soon as possible to afford us the opportunity to close this investigation. Thank you for entertaining my enquiries. I await your urgent response. Best regards, Kevin Tau ----------------- It's obviously fake when you spell inquiries as enquiries. If you have received this email delete it because it's probably a scam, it's also asking for my info so that's another red flag..
