Philip Barnet

Good day,

Let me introduce myself again, I am Philip Barnet, Staff of Investec Bank
(England). I am contacting you concerning Anthony, a deceased customer and
an investment he placed under our banks management 8 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 my 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 2004, the subject
matter; Mr Anthony came to our bank to engage in business discussions with
our private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial
portfolio of Fifty 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-factor
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 encourage and gave advice on how the funds should be invested, 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 2 million United States Dollars,
this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk
guaranteed returns on investments. 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
they do not nominate next of kin.
Most 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 testate. 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, is that our
dear late fellow died with no known or identifiable family member.

In the process of review of our financial report by my department, I
discovered that both of you have a similar last name; hence I contacted
you so that I can give you further briefing on my intention and how to
disburse the funds and estate he left behind. My proposal; you share the
same surname with our late client; I am prepared to place you in a
position to instruct the Bank 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. 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.

As a banker we see so much cash and funds being re-assigned daily. I would
want us to keep communication for now strictly by email Please and phone
number i will provide you when next i read from you, 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 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 learned from my private
banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord,
we should act swiftly on this.

Please get back to me immediately for further communication via my
personal email at

Philip Barnet.
