From the Desk of Mr. Edward Kong
Vice President & Branch Manager:
Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (USA) NA
39-02 Main Street
Flushing, NY 11354, USA
I am Mr. Edward Kong, the Vice President and branch manager of Industrial and
Commercial Bank of China (USA), Flushing Branch Flushing New York, USA. I
write to seek your consent to carry out a transaction that would be highly
beneficial to both of us. I know you may be wondering why I am contacting you
for this despite all the friends and relations that I have but I decided to do
this with an unknown person to avoid any form of blackmail in the future. Mr.
Alvin Peter Kappelmann Jr was an account holder with my bank. I have been his
account officer for 9 years before his death. He died during the World Trade
Centre bombing in September 11 2001. Please confirm from this site:
Since his death, the management of my bank has made series of efforts to
locate his family but all efforts were proved abortive. I also carried out
series of research to find his family but it was confirmed that his mother who
was the only surviving member of the family died at the hearing of her sons
death. He was already divorced before his death and due to this fact; no one
was able to claim the fund he deposited in my bank legally because there was
no will attached to it. He had a secret dollar account with my bank worthies
the sum of $58,200,000.00 (Fifty Eight Million, Two Hundred Thousand United
States Dollars) with an accrue interest agreement of 6.7%, which have been for
the past 9 years.
My purpose of contacting you now is this:
My bank during the last executive board meeting resolved that if by the end of
next month and there is no beneficiary to the said account, the account will
be confiscated and the fund sent to the bank treasury and this is where I am
interested in and wants you to come in:
I want you to come in as the Next of Kin/Beneficiary to this account. I have
all the titled documents to back your claim and as the Vice President and
Manager of this branch, it is in my power to carry out any form of
verification on the beneficiary of the said fund and process the fund wire
without any problem. Be informed that it is legal, 100% risk free as all the
titled documents will be changed to your name, and the fund wired to any bank
account you wish to have it wired to.
Please note that I am willing to let you have 40% of the total sum while you
give me 60% when the fund finally gets to your nominated bank account. Also,
note that I am willing to go extra mile to make this a success because if
anything goes wrong, then I stand the risk of losing my job and even go to
jail for trying to carry out such transaction. This is why I am contacting you
so that we can put heads together and take care of this transaction within now
and the next 15days.
Kindly get back to me immediately at (email@example.com ) so that I will
advice you on how this will be carried out.
Mr. Edward Kong
Vice President & Branch Manager of ICBC USA.
