Greetings to you,
How are you today and business in your country? I am Mr. xiaowong,
Bank Manager of a bank in China. 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 contacted
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. I know you would be wondering why
I am writing you with a request such as this but I only urge you to
read on.
In November 1999, a British Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese
Solid Minerals Corporation, made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for
twelve calendar months, valued at some millions of United states
dollars in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to
his forwarding address in America and Britain but got no reply. After
a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his
contract employers, the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation contractor
died alongside his wife,from an airplane crash. 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. If
you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our
services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment
from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he listed no next
of kin. 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; the British Oil consultant/contractor died
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. This money has since been sitting
in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal
sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim
it. According to the Laws of Republic of China, at the expiration of 6
(six)years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Chinese
Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. What I wish to relate
to you will smack of 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
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 a large sum of money deposited in my bank, I alone have the deposit
details and they will release the deposit to no one unless evidence of
relationship with the deceased, which I shall provide you with, is
presented. I alone know of the existence of this deposit for as far as
my Bank is concerned, the bank's management has no single idea of what?
s 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.
Consequently, my proposal is thatI will like you as a foreigner to
stand in as the next of kin to the deceased so that the fruits of this
old man's labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt
government officials. Acting in this capacity really is simple, all
you have to do is provide your full names and address so that an
attorney here can prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that
will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall employ the services
of an attorney for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain
the necessary authentication, approval and a letter of
probate/administration in your favour for the transfer to be done. A
bank account in any part of the world that you then provide me with
will then facilitate the transferof this money to you as the
beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for
us to share 80/20.
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 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 against 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. This is my chance
and i wont let it pass me 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 my family 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.
There is no risk whatsoever as all the paperwork for this transaction
will be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager
guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are
interested in this lucrative role, I urge you to indicate to that
effect. Upon your response, if favourable, I shall provide you with
more details and relevant information that will help you get full
understanding of the transaction. If you find yourself able to work
with me, contact me through this email address. 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 the email
address I have provided. 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
a wife and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of
fear as to what the consequences may be, 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.
In closing, please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured
that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us. Upon
receiving your reply, I will then furnish you with a more
comprehensive detail of this transaction, the amount involved and what
is required of you in order for us to achieve the success of this
Awaiting your urgent reply.
Yours Sincerely,
