Gracious Greetings

Am Mr.V.C.H.Cheng, of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited, Hong Kong . I am 
getting in touch with you regarding the estate of a deceased client with similar last name as yours 
and an investment placed under our banks management.
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 2003 a Hong Kong businessman who was our Client, made a fixed deposit of $18.350.000.00(Eighteen 
million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only) in my branch, a number of notices were 
sent to him when it was due, but no response came from him till date. We later found out that he 
along with his family had been killed in the tsunami disaster that happened in Asia that hit their 
home, what bothers me most is according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 7 years the 
funds will revert to the Hong Kong Government if nobody comes for the funds.
After more inquiry it was also discovered that the late business man did not declare any next of 
kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit This means that he died 
inestate  and this is the reason i am writing you is because you share the same last name What I 
expect from you is trust and commitment, I want this large sum of money transferred with your 
assistance and you should have nothing to worry about regarding legality AT ALL. All that is 
required is your honest co-operation and I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate 
arrangement that will protect me and you from any breach of the law.What I propose is that since I 
have exclusive access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these funds. You do not have 
to have known him personally. 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 in half(50/50). In the banking circle this 
happens every t!
ime. The other option is that the
 Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this email if you do not appreciate 
this proposal I have offered you. All confirmable documents to back up this fund shall be made 
available to you, as we move on; I shall let you know what is required of you. Your earliest 
response to this letter will be appreciated. I want to know if you are willing to follow up this 
business seriously before I can give you more details about this transaction
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 get 
back to me immediately via the above email.

I await your response.
Vincent Cheng
