Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Zhanzhi 
Hong 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. 

On April 6, 1999, an American 
Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese Petroleum and Chemical 
operation Mr. Richard Nault made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for 
twelve calendar months, valued at US$30,000,000.00 (Thirty Million 
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. 
Richard Nault 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 was fruitless. I therefore made 
further investigation and discovered that Mr. Richard Nault did not 
declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including 
his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. 

This sum of US$30,000,000.00 
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. Richard Nault so that the fruits of this old man's labor 
will not get into the hands of some corrupt Government officials.

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 70% for me 
and 25% for you and 5% for Expenses Incurred in the course of the 
transaction. There is no risk at all as the attorney will do all the 
paperwork for this transaction and with my position as the credit 
officer guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. 

you are really interested in doing this business with me please reply 
immediately to this email address: Or 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. 

and regards.

Mr. Zhanzhi Hong
