From: Mr Andric Gaston
Santander Bank, UK
I am Mr Andric Gaston, the Auditor General, Santander Bank, UK. In the course of my auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account, which was opened in 1990 at Abbey National Bank before it was bought over by Santander Group of which I am the auditor, belonging to a dead foreigner who died in 1999. Every effort made to track any member of his family or next of kin has since failed; hence I got in contact with you to stand as his next of kin since you bear the same last name. He died leaving no heir or a will.
My intention is to transfer this sum of $5.5M in the aforementioned account to a safe account overseas. I am therefore proposing that you quietly partner with me and provide an account or set up a new one that will serve the purpose of receiving this fund. For your assistance in this venture, I am ready to part with a good percentage of the entire funds. We will share the funds in the proportion of 40% for you, 40% for me and 20% donated to Charitable Organizations. After going through the deceased person's records and files, I discovered that:
(1) No one has operated this account since 1999
(2) He died without an heir; hence the money has been floating.
(3) No other person knows about this account and there was no known beneficiary.
If I do not remit this money urgently, it would be forfeited and subsequently converted to company's funds, which will benefit only the directors of my firm. This money can be approved to you legally as with all the necessary documentary approvals in your name. However, you would be required to show some proof of claim, which I will provide you with and also guide you on how to make your applications.
Please do give me a reply so that I can send you detailed information on the modalities of my proposition. I completely trust you to keep this proposition absolutely confidential.
I look forward to your prompt response.
Mr Andric Gaston

From: Mr Andric Gaston Santander Bank, UK
I must thank you for your response to my proposal, it shows seriousness and I am delighted by it please note that I am doing this transaction with you alone based on my moral justification and I believe that you will understand my position after reading through this mail.As this transaction is of high magnitude, I would want to properly and formally introduce myself to you. I am 47 years of age; I am married with two children, one lovely daughter and a son. I have worked with Santander Bank (formerly Abbey National Bank) as an auditor for 10 years. Presently I am the head of the auditing department, a position I occupy since 2004. Already his account has been declared dormant and by the end of this financial year, the funds could be declared as unclaimed or abandoned and therefore converted to company's funds. This automatically will be shared amongst the owners [directors and share holders] of my company who is looking out for this kind of opportunities. Similar things have been happening in the past and now that I am well placed, it is hard for me to continue to allow it happen without doing a thing about it. Part of my motive is to spend more than half of my personal share after these funds are wired to your account on charity. I can assure you that with the way I have planned this transaction, we can never have any kind of problems during and after this transaction. I have studied your country's laws regarding funds transfer of this nature and I can say that it is not a problem as long as we are able to provide your bank and government authorities documents to prove that the funds are legitimate.
Let me explain the step-by-step procedures of this transaction so that you may have a better understanding. For us to effect this, with the help of my professional assistance, you will stand in as the next of kin to the deceased by sending an application which I will prepare for you to the Head of International Remittance Division of my institution that your entitlement be paid to you as the next of kin to the deceased. Once approval is given, you will be contacted directly for them to process and effect transfer.Once an order for transfer has been given, I will take a leave of absence and travel down to meet with you in your country for my share. I have all the details of the deceased as I have access to his confidential file in my office.
I view you to be in the capacity of a person that will be able to handle your own end of this project as I can not successfully conclude this transaction without your assistance. It is therefore necessary that you tell me a little about yourself as I hope that you would not betray me. As for Trust, it is known fact that trust is earned; it is not given out lightly.However, like I wrote in my letter to you, I am willing to give you 40% as your commission, 40% for me while the remaining 20% will go to charity organizations. The modalities for our project have been worked out carefully and we cannot go wrong as long as you work with me in unity. I am very positive that our success is highly dependent on how much dedication we have towards this project. Please my direct involvement in this transaction should not be mentioned to anybody that would be contain you from my institution else it will jeopardize this transaction. This is because of the position I hold in the office. Upon the commencement of this transaction, you will be expected to make all direct communications with the Head of the International Fund Remittance Department of my institution, while I will be behind the scene to tell you what to do and say.With your full support and confidentiality we will pull this through within 14 working days. I look forward to hearing from you so I can send you a copy of an application that I have drafted to be sent by you to my institution. Your application would be accompanied with a copy of deceased certificate of deposit of the said funds with my institution, which I will send you later. Do give me a call or email me when you receive this message.
