Attention: Beneficiary Sir, In the course of our General Auditing and Account revision of fiscal quarter of the year 2009, we discovered that the Bank Accounts belonging to some Benefactors have been changed on the basis that the owners have died some time last year/2 Years ago 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 Bona-fide Benefactors and one traced to your own change is this Mr Kim Kun 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 this bank account below as the new account that will receive this money. Bank: HANA Bank Tokyo Branch Bank Address:3-4-2 Marunouchi,Chiyoda-ku,Tokyo,Japan. Account Name: Mr.Kim Kun Account Number: 01-027229 Swift Code: BSEOJPJT Telex: J23985 But I wanted to confirm if actually this is true and hence decided to write to your email address which after 7 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 Telephone number, contact address. These details from you will help to assist us reach a conclusion that you are not dead. Anything contrary to this claim will help us charge this man to court and prosecute him while your fund will be paid to you immediately without any further delay. You have to get back to us on time for us to commence legal proceedings against Mr. Kim Kun and his ccomplices. Yours Faithfully. Dr John Mark
