    From: "Mr. Ron M. Baker" <info@hsbc.org>
    To: undisclosed-recipients.
    Subject: IMMEDIATE CONTRACT/INHERITANCE PAYMENT
    Date: Wed, 16 Dec 2009

    From: Mr. Ron M. Baker
    Finance Director
    HSBC Bank of London
    London-United Kingdom
    Tel: +44-7024-056605
    Email: info.hsbc101@gmail.com

    Attn: Beneficiary,

    IMMEDIATE CONTRACT/INHERITANCE PAYMENT
    We wish to bring to your notice about the due process of your outstanding
    Contract/Inheritance payment which was suspended by the management of
    this Bank by stopping the telex unit to pause the transfer of your
    contract/inheritance funds to your nominated bank account.

    During the auditing of all financial records in our Bank (HSBC), it was discovered
    from the records of outstanding payment with our Bank that, your name is
    next on the list of those who will receive their funds. As a result of
    this development, verification conducted by credit department in
    conjunction with the Debt Verification Panel on your contract/inheritance
    fund, your file has been endorsed for immediate payment awaiting your
    confirmations. Meanwhile, three men came to my office few days ago with a
    letter, claiming to be your true representative.

    They were two CANADIANS and a BRITISH BARRISTER and they introduced themselves as Mr. Tim Parker and Mr. Roland Gulf and the Barrister's name David Mayfield.

    Below is the information they presented to my office:

    BANK NAME: BANK OF AMERICA
    BENEFICIARY OF THE ACCOUNT: MR.ROLAND GULF
    BANK ACCOUNT: 250880939815
    SWIFT CODE: USBKUS44IMT
    ACCOUNT ROUTING NUMBER: 104000029

    As the Finance Director of this Noble Bank, I was supposed to Release your Funds to them but I refused to do so because you did not inform us officially of the sudden change in the
    beneficiary bank account. I also wanted to hear from you first. Due to
    the Nature of my job, I would not want to make any mistake in releasing
    your Funds to anyone except you whom is the Recognized Bona fide
    Beneficiary to these Funds.

    Please we would like you to confirm to this office immediately if these men are truly from you or not, so that our bank will not be held responsible for paying into wrong account. You are
    also requested to fill and forward the information below for verification purposes so that your fund valued U.S$9.5million dollars will be remitted into your nominated bank account

    (1) Your Full Name And Address:.................................

    (2) Your Age And Marital Status:..................................

    (3) Your Occupation:................................................

    (4) Your Telephone Number:.........................................

    (5) Your Nationality:................................................

    ..... As soon as we receive the above requested information, we will
    proceed with the process of remitting your funds into your bank account.
    We are sorry for any inconvenience the delay in transferring of this fund
    must have caused you. We are waiting for your urgent response in regards
    to this notification. Yours Faithfully,

    From Mr. Ron M. Baker
    Finance Director HSBC Bank London.
    United Kingdom.
