Dear Mr. Michael Shackleford,
My name is Derrick Tan, Head of Global Marketing at Bank of Singapore Hong Kong. I am currently in the United States on a five days official assignment I am getting in touch with you regarding the estate of a deceased client with a similar last name whose portfolio we had the pleasure of managing about a decade ago. I will share some limited information about the estate with you and will shed more light once I can establish some level of trust and understanding with you. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come across as a result of this mail. I am contacting you independently and no one is informed of this communication.
Sometime around 2012 the subject matter, Lokni Shackleford came to our bank to engage in a business discussions with our private wealth management dept regarding a portfolio of about $11.2 M (Eleven million two hundred thousand dollars) he wished to have us invest on his behalf. Based on the advice of my colleagues at the time we spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins to the tune of $13.M (Thirteen million five hundred thousand dollars). In mid 2013 he informed us of his intentions to move his funds to an asset management company in Hong Kong named Hangseng Asset Management (HAM) and the transfer was initiated his behest. However HAM got in touch with us sometime in 2018 informing us the funds were received and never claimed. On further inquiries by our risk department we determined that Lokni had passed around August 2013, we also discovered he died intestate and with no known relatives. In Hong Kong the intestacy laws will determine how your assets are distributed if you have no known family members after the “seven year no claim rule” expires. What I propose is quite simple, I have exclusive access to Lokni’s file and I can place you in a beneficiary’s position and instruct HAM to make payments to you after all necessary verification and application is done, as long as no one gets greedy we can have a fair and equitable share by splitting the funds evenly, the other option would be letting it revert back to the state.
It's a lifetime opportunity for us and if we can be of one accord we can act swiftly and get this done in a reasonable amount of time. I can be reached on my private line 011 852 5808 2132 or personal email firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to hearing back from you and having a more in-depth conversation about this.
