Compliment Of The Day 

It is understandable that you might be a little bit apprehensive because
you do not know me but I have a lucrative business proposal of mutual
benefits to share with you.

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Lin Yongze operations manager
of the Bank of China (Hong Kong), Eastern Commercial Centre, 393-407
Hennessy Road, Wan Chai, HongKong. I have an obscured Business suggestion
for you.

In June, 2001, a late client of mine, an Iraqi Crude oil merchant made a
numbered fixed deposit of Twenty-one million Five Hundred Thousand United
State Dollars (US$21,500,000.00) only in my branch. Upon maturity several
notice was sent to him, even during the war (U.S invasion of Iraq), Five
years ago (2003). Again after the war,  another notification was sent and
still no response came from him. We later found out that him and his family
had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit his home at
Mukaradeeb where is personal oil well was.

After further investigation it was also discovered that he did not declare
any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank
deposit and he also confided in me the last time he was in my office that no
one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Twenty-one million five
Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one
will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according
to the laws of my country at the expiration of seven {7} years the funds
will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies
to claim the funds. 

Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a
foreigner to stand as the next of kin so that you will be able to receive
the funds.


I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall
come out successful. I have an attorney that will prepare the necessary
document that will back you up as the next of kin AT NO COST OF YOURS, all
that is required from you is to provide me with your Full Names and Address
so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next
of kin, the attorney will also fill in for claims on your behalf and secure
the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the movement
of the funds to an account that will be provided by you. We are going to
adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary
documents in your favor.

There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking.
There is no risk involved at all in this transaction, I have evaluated the
risks and the only risk I have here is for you refusing to work with me and
alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good
fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of
relevance in my life. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all
matters concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your
nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 60% for me, 10% for
legal and other miscellaneous expenses and 30% for you but this can be
subjected to further negotiations. I send you this mail not without a
measure of fear as to what 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. Please observe this instruction religiously.

Should you be interested please send me your,

1, Full names,
2, Private phone number(s)

And I will prefer you reach me on my private email address: and finally after that I shall furnish you with more
information's about this operation. Your earliest response to this letter
will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Lin Yongze.
