Subject: Funds released to you to share in the ratio 50/50 : email@example.com
I sincerely appreciate your interest to assist me in this transaction,
however I would like to be sure of your willingness, trustworthiness
and commitment to execute this project with me, I cannot afford to
compromise these virtues and none of your personal information will be
shared with anybody whatsoever, I have my principles.
About me and the funds: I am Dr Cheung Eric a Director of the Hang
Seng Bank LTD Hong Kong. My client Muhriz Mukarram, an iraqi
businessman and also a crude oil Merchant, made a fixed deposit with a
value of 17.5m USD for 18 months with my bank been proceeds from crude
oil supplies. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him but we did
not hear from him in Iraq.
It was later discovered that he was killed with his entire family in
the Iraqi war with no living witness to this fund as he had no next of
kin. Now what I want to do is to place you as the next of kin to my
late client since he had none and have the funds released to you for
the both of us to share in the ratio 50% for me and 50% for you.
I got hold of your email through the web directories and I had decided
to contact you since I needed a reliable foreigner that can help me
pull the funds out of my bank as I cannot do it myself and I do not
want anyone around me (family, friends and my bank) to be aware that
the move is from me.
You should not have anything to worry about, as 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 my
deceased client, and all that is required from you at this stage is
for you to provide me with
so that the attorney can commence his job. The attorney will prepare
the Affidavits which shall legally put you in place as next of kin, he
will obtain the necessary clearances which will cover all the aspects
involved in this transaction from the Hong Kong authorities including
the Justice department.
What I expect from you is trust and commitment, I want this huge sum
of money transferred with your assistance. The fact that you are a
foreigner give you the priviledge to stand in as my deceased client
beneficiary as there is no next of kin or beneficiary put in place by
him on the funds.. What bothers me most is that according to the laws
of my country at the expiration of 4 years the funds will revert to
the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim
the funds. Hence, I want us to act fast and get this funds transferred
in our favour and as a banker I know that if we follow up this
transaction diligently it would be completed within 10 working days.
I await your response
Dr. Cheung Eric
