I am Benjamin Ghanemy,British citizen and Principal assurance manager for
the HSBC in London. A staff of Yokozona consultancy firm got in touch with
me regarding the estate of simeon arag. And an investment placed under our
banks management 3 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 contact you
independently of our 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 1997, the subject matter;simeon arag came to our bank to engage in
business discussions with our private banking division. He informed us
that he had a financial portfolio of 8.35 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-facto chief operations officer, 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 encouraged him to consider various growth funds with prime ratings. The
favored route in my advice to customers is to start by assessing data on
6000 traditional stocks and bond managers and 2000 managers of alternative
investments.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 10
million United States Dollars, this margin was not the full potential of
the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments.

In mid 1998, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to
make an urgent investment requiring cash payments in United Kindom. He
directed that I liquidate the funds and had it deposited with United
Assets Management Uk (in their Securities Trading Firm).I informed him
that HSBC London would have to make special arrangements to have this done
and in order not to circumvent due process, the bank would have to make a
9.5 % deduction from the funds to cater for banking and statutory charges.
He complained about the charges but later came around when I explained to
him the complexities of the task he was asking of us.Cash movement across
boarders has become especially strict since the incidents of 9/11. I
contacted my affiliate in United Kingdom and had the funds available in
United Assets Management.I undertook all the processes and made sure I
followed his precise instructions to the letter and had the funds
deposited at United Assets Management Uk United Kindo! m. United Assets
Management Uk is a specialist bank that accepts deposits from high net
worth individuals and blue chip corporations that handle valuable products
or undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash. In Line with
instructions, the money was deposited with United Assets Management Uk (in
their Securities Trading Firm).simeon arag told me he wanted the money
there as soon as he got into the United Kingdom.

This was the last communication we had, this transpired around 25th
February 1999.In Sept last year, we got a call from United Assets
Management Uk informing us about the inactivity of that particular
portfolio.This was an astounding position as far as I was concerned, given
thefact that I managed the International private banking sector I was the
only one who knew about the deposit at United Assets Management Uk, and I
could not understand why simeon arag had not come forward to claim his
deposit. I made futile efforts to locate simeon. Four days later,
information started to trickle in, apparently simeon arag was dead. A
person who suited his description was declared dead of AUTO ACCIDENT
TRAUMA in Birmingham England.We were soon enough able to identify the body
and cause of death was confirmed.
The bank immediately launched an investigation into possible surviving
next of kin to alert about the situation and also to come forward to claim
his estate. In the field of! private banking, opening an account with us
means no one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a
name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous.
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 do they nominate next of kin. Private
banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also usually in most
cases leave wills in our care, in this case;simeon arag died in 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. You have unfortunately declared, and I know that you are in
no way affiliated with this individual. What this means, you being the
last batch of names we have considered is that our dear late fellow died
with no known or identifiable family member. This leaves me as the only
person with the full picture of what the prevailing situation i! s in
relation to the deposit and the late beneficiary of the deposit.According
to practice, United Assets Management Uk will by the end of this quarter
broadcast a request for statements of claim to HSBC in London, failing to
receive viable claims they will most probably revert the deposit back to
HSBC in London.

This will result in the money entering the HSBC in London accounting
system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private
banking division. This will not happen if I have my way.What I wish to
relate to you will smack off unethical practice but I want you to
understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who
finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world
of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who
occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. You should have
begun by now to put together the general direction of what I propose.
There is US$ 8,370,000.00 deposited in United Assets Management Uk, I
alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one
unless I instruct them to do so. I alone know of the existence of this
deposit for as far as United Assets Management Uk is concerned, the
transaction with simeon arag concluded when I sent the funds to Uni! ted
Assets Management Uk, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file
are just customer services and due process. United Assets Management Uk
has no single idea of the history or nature of the deposit. They are
simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that
comes forward.This is the situation. This bank has spent great amounts of
money trying to track this man's family; they have investigated for months
and have found no family. The investigation has come to an end.My
proposal, I am prepared to place you as the next of kin in a position to
instruct United Assets Management Uk 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.

I would have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would
have drawn a straight line in my involvement in claiming the deposit. I
assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within a few
days. I will simply inform the bank of the final closing of the file
relating to simeon arag I will then officially communicate with United
Assets Management Uk and instruct them to release the deposit to you. With
these: all is done. I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. I ask
that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this
mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my offer is
of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you.
Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. You
may not know this but people like myself who have made tidy sums out of
comparable situations run the whole private banking sector. I am not a
criminal and what I do, I do not find agai! nst good conscience, this may
be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates
that I make this move. Such opportunities only come ones way once in a
lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by, for once I find myself in
total control of my destiny. These chances wont passme by. I ask that you
do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let
me move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man and this
is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. There is a
reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking.

I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you
refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows
of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has
planted you into the center of relevance in my life. Lets share the
blessing.If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process
towards a conclusion. I wish to inform you that should you contact me via
official channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. I
repeat, I do not want you contacting me through my official phone lines
nor do I want you contacting me through my official email account. Contact
me only through the numbers I will provide for you and also through this
email address. I do not want any direct link between you and me. My
official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to
assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality
Management Policy.

Please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again, note I am a
family man, I have wife and children. I send you this mail not without a
measure of fear as to what 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 plan a meeting, soon.

I await your response.
