Subject: FURTHER DETAILS ON THE PROJECT.
Thank you very much for your email response and your enthusiasm to assist me in this project. I have exhaustively considered your response today and I am satisfied that you have an understanding of the need for absolute secrecy in this pending project, hence my firm belief that I can count on your total support and confidentiality. I would proceed without any reservation to bring you into the complete picture of this transaction.
Before doing this, I would again like to reiterate the importance of confidentiality, as I am career bankers who is still in active service and would not like my names to be brought to odium or my long tenure in office jeopardized.
In searching for a God fearing and reliable partner for the purpose of this transaction, I have contacted you personally not as a matter of choice but of necessity knowing fully well, the monetary policies as regards funds transfer especially after the event of September 11th in America.
I will be fully conscious in the pursuit of this project to make sure that we do not go against any local or international laws of funds transfer. You must understand that I am a family man and presently still serving here in the Bank of China. What I intend doing is to have your details that is your full name as documented, your telephone and fax numbers to contact you on as regards the transfer, your physical contact
address, your age and also any possible identification.
With these, I should be able to place together all documentation in your name to prove to the authority that you are truly the next of kin/beneficiary to the estate and I will also have the probate letter signed at the Court of China. As soon as all these are done and ratification exercise takes place which we must surely scale through as I will make a lot of under the table arrangement here, I will place an application of claim in your name for the release of the funds. As soon as we have concluded with this arrangement using an international clearing agent, you will then have to open up a separate bank account in your name and you alone have to be the signatory. This bank wills serve as an intermediary between your bank and the BOC. The aim of the intermediary bank is to receive the funds from the BOC and from there you can have the entire funds transferred bit by bit into any of your
chosen bank account in your country. With this arrangement, even if
there has to be a loop hole in what we have done so far the funds cannot be traced. These special banks which I will introduce to you are specialized in this aspect. They assist business men alike who do not want the heavy load of tax to eat into their fund, they also assist government official in taking our funds out of our country without due attention from any authority. You will get to know more about this once we have both accepted to be partners in this venture. This will be your responsibility and I will have to perfect the rest of the arrangement here. The account you have are account from regular banks they cannot serve the purpose here. You will begin to understand and appreciate this idea once we have commenced process on this transaction. It is all going to be a bank to bank affair you do not need to worry in as much as you follow my words as religiously as
I will also like to know more about your biography to further increase my level of trust and confidence in you as I am afraid that anyone can make away with my entire funds once it gets to his/her possession. I want you to please make me believe in you that you will not let me down. I am a gentleman of honor who has this opportunity and will not let it go having worked in this sector for several years. This is my only opportunity and I will not toy with it. I will also assure you that I know what I am doing and to the best of my knowledge, the entire project is legitimate and very risk free in as much as we observe high level of confidentiality and treat this matter accordingly with the two of us sharing ideas and not missing words.
If you have further knowledge on how we can go about this matter let us then open the room for discussion and let us deal with this matter totally. Upon your response and also stating your
ability to handle the project I will inform you on what you need do to have an account established in an offshore tax haven like the West Indies.
I will await further response from you.
