Thanks for your fast response and I know this will come as a surprise to you but let me formally introduce myself to you. I am Mrs Helen Kan, Director, Alternate Chief Executive Officer, Group Head of Personal and Business Banking of China Citic Bank International. I am contacting you concerning an abandoned sum of $35,500,000.00 USD by one of our prominent clients who happens to have the same SURNAME with you. In April 2007, A customer called Mr. Aaron Young, a foreign contractor with Royal Dutch Plc. came to our bank for business discussions and investment. As the officer in charge of his transaction then, I encouraged him to consider various growths of funds with prime ratings. He finally invested Thirty Three Million five hundred thousand only ($33,500,000.00) and based on my professional advice, we were able to spin the initial deposit with profit and interest to $35,500,000.00 USD.
In June 2013 my client informed me to liquidate his investment because he needed funds to execute a new business project, and that I should on his behalf have the funds deposited with a security company, I wondered why he wanted it so, but from my experience, I guess he was trying to cut corner, however I obliged by following his instructions discretely. I waited for him to instruct me on a nominated offshore account to transfer the funds to, but I never heard from him, weeks later I found out that he has been involved in a car crash along with his nuclear family in Texas; may their soul rest in peace. Before the passing on of my late client, while making the deposit of his funds to the security company on his behalf, although the funds were deposited in his name and all paperwork are in his name, I did not provide information of any next of kin because none was stated by him, I believe now you are beginning to see the picture clearly? (My bank has no knowledge of the funds as his investment with my bank has been liquidated) I have all the documents regarding this deposit, and as the originator of the deposit I can have the deposit liquidated and have the funds transferred to any account I nominate. Sadly I can not have the funds transferred to my account because that will raise suspicion and the funds will be confiscated and I will be investigated, but if I have the funds transferred to your account no suspicion will arise, because you share the same last name with him and I can present you as his next of kin, I waited this long to be sure that none of his relative will come forward before taking this action and if nothing is done about the funds at the end of next month, the funds will be transferred to the government treasury as my client died intestate.
MY PROPOSAL: I need you to be my partner to recover this funds I am also proposing that after a successful execution of the business deal, the funds will be shared in the ratio 40/60. You will get 40% and I will be entitled to 60% as the initiator of the deal. Note that I have done my homework already before contacting you. Although the project is capital intensive, I am positive that we shall pull through with your assistance. I will handle the legal aspect with the assistance of a lawyer who will prepare all the documents that will be needed to transfer the money from China.Your role is to set up and manage an offshore account in a bank with non disclosure policies where the funds will be transferred to, this offshore account will serve as a proxy account toyour own personal account, because it wouldn't be wise to transfer the funds directly toyour account, with my experience I will nominate the offshore bank that can accommodate the funds discretely. Note this transaction will be done without breach of all Laws of International Banking and I know that if we follow up this transaction diligently it would be completed within 7 working days.
Once more, I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail and forget I ever contacted you, I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive; do not destroy my career. An opportunity like this only comes once in a lifetime.
If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through this same email account. If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. Note that if for any reason you decide to contact me via official channels; I will deny knowing you or any thing about this project. I repeat, I do not want you contacting me through my official phone lines nor do I want you contacting me through my official email account. Contact me only through this email address. I do not want any direct link between you and I. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Quality Management Policy.
Please observe this instruction religiously. Please, note I am a family woman; I have a husband and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success is a product of had work. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, send me your response to enable us commences.
I await your response.
