Hello dear, I wish this message get to you in good condition. It's just my urgent need for foreign partner that made me contact you for this transaction. I am the manager of bill and exchange foreign remittance department of HSBC Bank here in Malaysia. In our department we discovered an abandoned sum of (U.S. $ 4.2 million dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer is a reactor in France (Mr. Paul Louis, from Paris, France) who died along with his entire family in July 2003 in a plane crash on their way to France. I am afraid that if the funds remain in our bank without claim for a long period of time, The Malaysia government will intervene, because the banking laws here does not allow such a huge amount of money to remain idle for more than fifteen years. Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after fifteen years, the fund will be transferred into the Bank treasury department as unclaimed funds. I still use this opportunity to inform you that the said fund will be transferred into your bank account, within 10 to 14 working days, And I have also I agree that 25% of the total sum will be for you as foreign partner in respect to the provision of a foreign account, while 75% would be for me. If you agree with my business proposal, further details will be sent to you as soon as I receive your return mail. Please be sure to keep this transaction as top secret and make it confidential until you receive the funds in the account that you will provide to our bank. If you would not mind, I need the following information so we can proceed: 1. Address: 2. Telephone: Please if you are interested, reply me immediately you read this message. Yours sincerely, Mr. Kenneth Butt. Bill & Exchange Manager.
