> Good day friend,
> Greetings to you. Sequel to my previous email, my name is Guan Chen, a
> manager in the Bank of China, Shenzhen,China. This is an investment
> proposition for you.
> On November 6, 2002, a Russian engineer with the Harbin Aircraft
> Manufacturing Corporation, made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve
> calendar months, valued at USD60,000,000 (Sixty Million Dollars) in my
> branch. Upon maturity, a routine notification was sent to his forwarding
> address but no reply was received.
> After a month, I sent another reminder and finally discovered from his
> contract employers, the Harbin Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation that he
> died from an automobile accident. On further investigation by my
> Attorneys, I found out that he died without making a WILL. I therefore
> made further investigation and discovered that he did not declare any next
> of kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank
> Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of USD60,000,000 is still sitting
> in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at
> the end of each year.
> It is now apparent that no one will ever come forward to claim these funds
> and according to the Malaysian Laws, at the expiration of 6 (six) years,
> the money will revert to the ownership of the Malaysian Government if
> nobody applies to claim the fund.
> Consequently, my proposal is that I would like you as a foreigner to stand
> in as the next of kin, so that the fruits of this man's labor will not get
> into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple, as my
> attorney's would prepare all the necessary legal documents and affidavits
> that will put you in place as the next of kin.
> My attorney's would draft and notarize the WILL and also obtain all
> necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for
> the transfer to any designated bank account(s) in any part of the world
> that you will provide, as next of kin. For your role in this transaction,
> you would be entitled to 40% of the principal amount plus any accrued
> This transaction has zero percent risk as all the legal paperworks and
> documentations for this transaction will be done by Attorney and my
> position as manager guarantees the successful execution of this
> transaction. Everything would be done in line with all legalities.
> If you are interested, please reply immediately to my private email
> included below as my official lines are not secure. If you are not
> interested, I would plead with you not to get me into any troubles as I am
> a family man; I have a wife and children. I send you this mail not without
> a measure of fear as to what the consequences. I am doing this now,
> because it is my greatest opportunity to change the wrongs in my life and
> live my dreams. I have worked so hard all of my life and have little or
> nothing to show for it.
> We would need to know each other a little more before I can provide you
> with more details to help you understand this transaction. In due course,
> all relevant documents would also be forwarded to you.
> Please observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this
> transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall
> require your assistance to invest my share in your country.
> Awaiting your prompt reply via my email: email@example.com
> Thanks and regards.
> Guan Chen.
