ALIVE OR DEAD
In the course of our General Auditing and Account revision of the last quarter of the year 2015 ending within few Months from now, we discovered that the Bank Accounts with sum of $38.5 Million United States Dollars belonging to some Benefactors have been changed on the basis that the owners have died some time last two weeks or have given out an authorization note of change of data. After the investigations, however,it was revealed that there are Foreigners who are collaborating with Retired Staffs to make these changes illegally without the knowledge of the Bonifide Benefactors and one traced to your own change is this Mr Rick Jones who said you are dead, hence they have forwarded some documents of funeral service held for you so as to divert your fund. They have also forwarded to this office account below as the new account that will receive this money:

Bank Address: 83 Des Veoux Road,Central-Hong Kong
Account Name: Rick Jones
Account Number: 235-325172-882

But we wanted to confirm if actually this is true and hence decided to write to your email address which after 2 days from now and there is no response, we will then know that you are dead indeed and go on with the transfer. If proved otherwise by you that you did not die, please forward to us all the related Benefactors particulars including your
