Dear Friend,

My name is Zhang Zedong and I am a bank manager of a reputable bank in
China. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this
mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come
by as a result of this mail. I contacted you independently of our
investigation and no one is informed of this communication.

The subject in questions was a client with my bank and until his demise
he maintained an investment in millions of dollars, which has since
reached its maturity. The subject maintained a discrete relationship
with us and never nominated a legatee to his investment. At the time of
his demise he was yet to sign the mandate card and he remained in
testate. It is ethical that the government confiscates his investment
with us and for it to be reverted to treasury but not quite; it would
be diverted and embezzled by insincere executives.

Consequently, what I propose is that I will like you as a foreigner to
stand in as the next of kin to the deceased. Acting in this capacity
really is simple, as I will explain in detail to you when I get your

However, I wish to appeal to you not to be vindictive if my proposal
does not appeal to you, just delete it and forget I ever contacted you
with this proposal. Ordinarily I would not do this but all humans have
needs and there are circumstances that you would get to understand
better should we work together on this project.

Awaiting your urgent reply through my alternative email

Yours Sincerely,
Mr. Zhang Zedong
