Subject: Good day to you
From: "Mr. Don Chang" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Good day to you,
I am a Bank Officer here in Central, Hong Kong. I am writing in regards to
an opportunity in my office that will be an immense benefit to both of us.
I have been in search of someone in your country for this business
transaction that I am about to explain to you, so when I saw your contact
details via data index, I was pushed to contact you and see how best we
can assist each other. I believe it is the wish of God for me to come
across you now.
In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of US$26,700,000.00 (Twenty
Six Million, Seven Hundred Thousand US Dollars) in an account that belongs
to one of our foreign customers Late Mr. Amir Khouri, an Iraqi Foreign Oil
consultant/contractor with OIL AND NATURAL GAS INDUSTRY, who unfortunately
lost his life in the May 26, 2006 Earthquake disaster in Jawa, Indonesia
that killed over 5,000 people. He was in Indonesia on a business trip and
that was how he met his end. Personally I have been un-successful in
locating the relatives for the past 4 years and the information I got from
the Iraqi Government is that none of his family member survived the 2 Gulf
wars. Therefore I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin /
Beneficiary so that the proceeds of this account valued at
US$26,700,000.00 can be paid to you instead of letting the bank confiscate
the money since nobody has shown up for the claim or applied in writing
for 5years since the Earthquake happened.
My bank management is yet to know about his death, I knew about it because
I noticed the account has been dormant for long time. Amir Khouri did not
mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the account was established, and he was
not married and no children. Last week my Bank Management requested that
Amir Khouri should give instructions on what to do about his account, if
to renew the contract. I know this will happen and that is why I have been
looking for a means to handle the situation, because if my Bank Directors
happens to find out that Amir Khouri is dead and do not have any Heir,
they will take the funds for their own personal use, so I don't want such
to happen. That was why when I saw your contact details online I was happy
and I am now seeking your co-operation to present you as Next of Kin/ Heir
to the account, As one of the senior staff I will use my position to
influence the bank head quarters to release the account to you. There is
no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will protect you and me from any breach of law.
It is better that we claim the money, than allowing the Bank Directors to
take it, they are rich already. I am not a greedy person, so I am
suggesting we share the funds equal parts, 50/50% to both parties, my
share will assist me to start my own company which has been my dream. Let
me know your mind on this and please do treat this information as TOP
SECRET. We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response.
Have a nice day and God bless. Anticipating your urgent response.
Mr. Don Chang.
