Mr. Bernice Dunsby Vice President & Branch Manager HSBC Bank USA Branch address 4700 Vestal Parkway East Vestal, NY 13850 Customer service 1.800.975.4722 http://www.us.hsbc.com Dear Friend, Internet would not have been the best way to reach you but since this letter is
highly confidential and the Internet seems to be the most secured and fastest way
of communication, I decided to reach you by this means. I am Mr. Bernice Dunsby,
Branch Manager and Vice President of HSBC Bank USA,4700 Vestal Parkway East Vestal,
NY 13850 United States of America Kindly note, this message is un-official and personal and as such should be kept
highly confidential so I plead with you to kindly keep it as such. I am contacting
you based on a recent meeting held by the management of my bank which an account of
Late Lawrence N Johnson(Deceased) who died Thursday January 21, 2010 of Heart
Attack at his home in Redwood City, CA was declared dormant and should be
confiscated and the fund sent to the bank treasury. Late Lawrence N Johnson was an account holder in my bank and I was his account
officer. Since his death, the management of my bank has made series of efforts
to locate any of his family members but all efforts were unsuccessful.
Late Larry A. Johnson as a matter of fact has a Secret account with my branch.
In fact, since his death, no next of kin of the account holder nor any relative
of his has shown up for the claim, this is because he has the account as a secret
account thus he left all the documents for the deposit with my branch.
This is where I am interested and where I want you to come in. I want you to
come in as the relation of the deceased; I will give you the relevant documents
and contacts to file the application and then effect the approvals for the
transfer of the funds, I will be the one to provide the vital documents for the
claims of the money and then advise you exactly how we should handle it and this
is why I am contacting you. My bank in a short while would declare the account dormant, confiscated and the
fund would be sent to the bank treasury which means the fund would be taken over
by the bank. I will not let such happen because this fund was kept under my care
as the account officer to the late depositor. I will never forgive myself if I
allow the bank confiscate this fund. I want you to come in as the Next of Kin/Beneficiary to this account. I have
all the titled documents to back your claim and as the Vice President and Manager
of this branch, it is in my power to carry out any form of verification on the
beneficiary of the said account, process the fund and wire without any problem.
I want you to know that this is legal and 100% risk free as all the titled
documents would be changed to your name and the fund wired to any bank account
you wish to have it transferred. Kindly note that my work and position would be at risk should anything go wrong
so I need you to think about this and get back to me and I will give you further
details on how this can be handled successfully and without any problem. I am also
using this medium to inform you that this is very simple and fast and I would be
the one to handle everything and all I would need from you is absolute trust and
confidentiality. Kindly respond as soon as possible so I can give you further details. Yours Truly, Mr. Bernice Dunsby.
