From the desk of: Mr. Guang Rui, Bank of china, Shenzhen, Peoples Republic of China. I am Mr. Guang Rui, Bank Manager of Bank of China, Shenzhen Branch, China. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. A British Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr. RaymondBeck made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at
Thirty Million US dollars in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routinenotification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent
a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, that Mr. Raymond Beck died in a plane crash along with his wife Mrs Doreen Beck in Egypt Air Flight 990, 1999 air crash (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/502503.stm ). On further investigation, I discovered that he had died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. Upon further investigation, I found out that Mr. Raymond Beck did not declare his next of kin or relative ofany sort in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in
my Bank.This sum of Thirty Million dollars is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will
ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of the Peoples Republic of China, at the expiration of 7 (Seven) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Chinese Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.Consequently, my proposal is for you as a foreigner, to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Raymond Beck so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get
into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple, you will provide immediately your full names and address so that the attorney willprepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the
next of kin. We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid intoyour account for us to share, eighty percent for me and twenty percent for you.
There is no risk at all, as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done
by the attorney and with my position as the Branch Manager, the successfulexecution of this transaction is guaranteed. If you are Interested, please reply immediately via the private email address I indicated above. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help
you understand the transaction. Please send me your telephone and fax numbers for further communication.
