Dear friend, 
This is a personal and private letter directed solely to you, it is not one of those spam mails you 
get from time to time and I request that you treat it as confidential and delete immediately if you 
do not approve of its content.
My name is Johnny Chu Lee, a banker formerly based in England but now retired and back home in 
China due to old age and medical condition.

In the course of my work, I was assigned to manage the account of Mr. W Larson as an account 
officer. He died in an auto crash with his immediate family on the 4th of Oct 2003. Then I wrote 
series of letter to his address with intent to locating any of his extended family left so that 
they can act as his next of kin and claim whatever is left of his account deposit and all such 
efforts have been to no avail. 
Three days ago, I got some information regarding a proceeding for confiscation of his deposit in 
line with existing laws on dormant funds and accounts in the United Kingdom banking system, please 
read the recent publication of British Guardian newspaper for more understanding.
I am proposing that, with your consent, you apply to my former employer, as the sole surviving 
family member of late Mr. W Larson’s family. This will enable you put in a claim to the bank as his 
next of kin and beneficiary of the sum of US$3.5Million which is currently being held in deposit. 
There will be no need for you to travel out of your present location; all correspondence will be by 
telephone, fax or email. Upon successful completion and retrieval of the funds, 40% of the net sum 
will go to you whil
e the balance of 60% will be mine which I know will be enough to sort of my medical bills and 
improve my lot in life. 
I have all the documents and technical know how required to mount a successful application and 
retrieval of the funds. I will provide more information as soon as you signify you willingness by 
contacting me via phone or email, { }

I will be available to provide answers to any of your question.

Best regards, 
Johnny Chu Lee
