I am Richard Yung, Principal Assurance manager for the Shanghai Pudong Development Bank.I am getting in touch with you regarding the estate of Michael and an investment placed under our banks management 10 years ago.
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 contact you independently and no one is informed of this communication. In 2005, the subject matter; Michael came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of US$77.000.000.00 United States dollars, which he wished to have us invest on his behalf.
Based on my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at $6.350.000.00 United States Dollars,which brings the total portfolio to US$83.350.000.00. In mid 2007, he instructed that US$3.000.000.00 .be wired to an account in Canada while the balance (US$ 80.350.000.00) be liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash payments in Singapore . We got in touch with a specialist bank in Singapore the United Overseas Bank (UOB) who agreed to receive this money for a fee and make cash available to Michael. However United Overseas Bank (UOB) got in touch with us last year that this money has not been claimed. On further enquiries we found out that Michael was involved in an accident in Mainland China , which means he died intestate. He has no next of kin and the reason I am writing you is because both of you bear the same last name.
What I propose is that since I have exclusive access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these funds. My bank will contact you informing you that money has been willed to you. On verification, which will be the details I make available to my bank, my bank will instruct UOB to make payments to you. You do not have to have known him. I know this might be a bit heavy for you but please trust me on this. For all your troubles I propose that we split the money(US$80.350.000.00) in half. In the banking circle this happens every time. The other option is that the money will revert back to the state. Nobody is getting hurt; this is a lifetime opportunity for us. I hold the KEY to these funds, and as a Chinese National we see so much cash and funds being re-assigned daily. I would want us to keep communication for now strictly by below email and fax number.
Please, again, note I am a family man; I have a wife and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to t the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should act swiftly on this. Please pardon my writing mistakes.Awaiting your immediate response.I'm currently on vacation in Miami,FL and I can be reached through this email (email@example.com)
