Hello Partner,

How are you doing today?

I am in receipt of your mail ,I have found you trust worthy and given you my trust not only as a partner but a Brother, please do not let me down, I have recruited an attorney to assist in procuring the necessary documents to facilitate the release of the funds to you and these documents will also give this project the much needed legal backing and authenticity and at this stage, you will have to make a formal application to my bank requesting that the funds be released to you as the next of kin to the late Mr Merrick, Below is the text of the application you are going to make, all you have to do is write the application and send it down email to the bank.

Email : claimapplication@investecint.co.uk

You should endeavour to notify me as soon as you have sent the application to the Bank so that the vetting panel can convene. As I had told you before, I happen to be the Head of the private banking sector which supervises the probing and verification panel. You should know that as soon as your application is considered and approved, you are the only one that would have direct access to the funds in question and you would be expected to act in the full capacity of the beneficiary of the funds. I would be right here to monitor events from here and also give advice where necessary. All I want from you as I had said before is your total commitment to this project and prompt response to issues as they come.
I would be looking forward to hearing from you soonest my good friend.

Best regards,
David.
