I Lee Sang, Business Relations Manager for Taichung Bank in Hong Kong. I am get in touch with you regard the estate of a deceased client with similar last name and an investment placed under our bank management. I would respectfully request that you keep the content of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of information you come by as result of this mail. I contact you independently and no one is inform of this communication. In 2000, the subject matter, Mr. Alfred came to our bank to engage in business discussion with our private banking division. He inform us that he have financial portfolio of $8.4 millionUnited States dollars, which he wish to have us invest on his behalf. Based on my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margin for our first month of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point at over (10) million United States Dollars. In mid 2002, he instruct that the principal sum ($8.4M) be liquidated because he need to make an urgent investment requiring cash payment in Hong Kong . We got in touch with specialist bank in Hong Kong the DBS Bank Limited who agreed to receive this money for a fee and make cash available to Alfred. However DBS Bank Limited got in touch with us last year that this money has not been claimed. On further enquiries we found out that Alfred 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 you are namesake. What I proposing is that since I have exclusive access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these funds. The DBS Bank Limited will contact you informing you that money has been will to you. On verification, which will be the details I make available to Taichung Bank. DBS Bank will be instructed to make payments to you after all necessary verification and application is done. You do not have to have known Alfred. I know this might be a bit heavy for you but please trust me on this. For all your trouble I propose that we split money 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 get 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 telephone, fax and email: 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 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 get back to me immediately via the telephone or fax number or private email below. I await your response. Lee Lu Sang Tel: +852-8191-7503 Fax: +852-3010-9776 E: firstname.lastname@example.org
