Kowloon West, Hong Kong Island 

Dear Friend, 
   I am Mr. Hong Achai credit officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have an urgent and very 
confidential business proposition for you. I honestly apologize and hope I do not cause you much 
embarrassment by contacting you through this means for a transaction of this magnitude, but this is 
due to confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium, sorry my English is not very good. 
Furthermore, due to this issue on my hands now, it became necessary for me to seek your assistance, 
and it is imperative for me to know your opinion. 

   Five years ago, a Saudi Arabian Oil Consultant/Contractor with the Chinese Petroleum and 
Chemical corporation Mr. Al-Rahman Al Saud made a numbered time(Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar 
months, valued at US$13,000,000.00 (Thirteen Million United State Dollars only) in my branch. Upon 
maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, 
we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Hong Kong Petroleum 
and Chemical Corporation that Mr. Al-Rahman Al Saud died from an automobile accident.

   On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL and all attempts to 
trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that 
Mr.-Rahman Al Saud did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including 
his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$13,000,000.00 (Thirteen Million United State 
Dollars only) 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 Hong 
Kong, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong 
Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.

   Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin 
to Mr. Al-Rahman Al Saud so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of 
some corrupt government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full 
names and address so that the attorney will prepare 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. The money will be paid into your account for 
us to share in the ratio of 50% for me and 40% for you and 10% for Expenses Incurred in the course 
of the transaction.

   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 credit officer guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. 
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 confidential telephone and fax numbers for 
easy communication. You should observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this 
transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to 
invest my share in your country.

Awaiting your urgent reply.
Thanks and regards.
Mr. Hong Achai
