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 Seventeen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State
Dollars (US$17,500,000.00) 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

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, Seventeen 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


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),
3, Current contact address,

Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Lin Yongze.
