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 Center 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 son’s 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 this year 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
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
Kindly get back to me immediately at ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) so
that I will advice you on how this will be carried out.
Mr. Edward Kong.
Vice President & Branch Manager of ICBC USA.
