Mr. Song Lile.
Hang Seng Bank Ltd,
Sai Wan Ho Branch,
171 Shaukiwan Road.
I must thank you very much for sparing your good time to respond to the business proposal that will benefit both parties at the end, i got your email from the European business directory in a bar close to my office. Be assured, this transaction is risk free and a very genuine business.
Once again, I am Mr. Song Lile, Director of Operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Sai Wan Ho Branch, Hong Kong and I am a 51 year old looking forward to retirement with an intention of investing in a profitable venture in your country like real estate and estate properties. As a bank employee, I can not operate any personal investment till I am retired and with the Anti-corruption Bill passed in Hong Kong; it is risky for a fixed income earner to own any huge amount of money in Hong Kong or any foreign country. It is then advisable to invest in any foreign land secretly and patiently wait retirement.
For security purpose, due to telecom interception in Hong Kong, I shall not accept or acknowledge any phone call. Only fax messages/emails would be treated in relation to this proposal but not without this code;[CODE NO: AM-001].
SOURCE OF FUNDS...
Before the U.S and Iraqi war, our client Colonel Sadiq Uday who was with the Iraqi forces, made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of $19,500,000 (Nineteen million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) only in my branch. Upon maturity, several notices were sent to him, even during the war early this year. Again after the war, another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that our client and his family had been killed in an auto crash while on vacation in the United Kingdom.
After further investigation, it was also discovered that Colonel Sadiq Uday did not declare any next of kin in his official papers, including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office, which no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, $19,500,000 (Nineteen million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) is still lying in my bank, and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the to the laws of my country, at the expiration of 3 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government, if nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Colonel Sadiq Uday so that you will be able to receive his funds.
WHAT IS TO BE DONE?
I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Colonel Sadiq Uday, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an account in the United Kingdom or elsewhere in Europe. There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going to adopt a legalized method, and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents.
I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. Once more, I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail and forget I ever contacted you, I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. 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 as this rarely come a man' s way in his lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by because I prefer to utilize these funds to actualize my dreams of building a grand business empire which will create employment for a large number of people and also share with an individual who also needs funds to grow; rather than to having the " already rich" Hong Kong government to have the funds. For once I find myself in total control of my destiny. This chance won' t pass me by and please do not let me miss my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide family with new opportunities. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. If you give me positive signals, I will give you the relevant modus operandi to initiate this process towards a successful conclusion.
I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as the possible consequences should you turn your back on me, 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. I await your response
Meanwhile, for the assistance you shall render me I will offer you 40% of the total amount.
Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
