From: "YONG LIN"<>

This email with the subject "FOR YOUR PERUSAL" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Fri, 24 Apr 2009 10:08:58 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was "YONG LIN"<>, although it may have been spoofed.

Though seems unsolicited, this email is a business proposal to you. I appreciate the fact that you 
have every reason to be suspension, please note this proposal is very real. I will employ you to 
read it with open mind and act in the best way as directed by your mind and instinct. 

My name is Lin Yong, operations manager of the Bank of China (Hong Kong). 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. 

In June, 2001, a late client of mine, a Crude oil merchant from your country whom we presumed 
(rightly or wrongly) to be a relative of yours 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 Five years ago (2003) with out response. We later found out that he 
and his family had been killed in a plane crash.

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 file 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 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 50% for me, 10% 
for legal and other miscellaneous expenses and 40% for you but this can be subjected to further 
negotiations. 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. Please observe this instruction religiously.

Should you be interested please send me your,

1, Full names,
2, Current contact address,

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 Yong.
