This communication is in reference to an investment opportunity involving an Iraqi that made a fixed deposit at my Bank.
He had a financial portfolio of $21,500,000.00 and this I help turned over in the purchase of securities in the capital markets. I was the bank adviser assisting the customer in the management of the fund.
Been previously given the instruction to liquidate the investment made by this customer after sometime to enable the customer pursue some other investment requiring cash payment in Europe, I made effort to contact the customer in the line of duty for some final instruction only to discover that the customer had been killed along other members of his family.
Since the original owner died along with the supposed next of kin, my proposition is this; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct my Bank to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation. For your cooperation I am prepare to share the deposit with you.
If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through this email account: email@example.com
If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards conclusion.
Mr. Cheng Keung
Bank of China
