Subject: Dear Recipient
How are you today and business in your country? I am Shing Li, Bank Manager of bank of Overseas,Taiwan. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail.
I contacted you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this communication. A British Oil contractor with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr.Courtney Steven made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit of $30,000,000.00 for twelve calendar months and not too long Mr. Courtney Steven died from an airplane crash. We have launched an investigation into possible surviving next of kin to alert about the situation and also to claim his estate but in his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin.
The world of banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. I alone have
the deposit details to back you as the next of Kin to enable us transferred the fund away from my bank. My bank is simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that I present as the next of Kin.
Please reply to my private Email: email@example.com
