Saturday,February 13 2010. email@example.com HongKong. Dear Friend, I am Liu Yan a transfer supervisor operations in investment section in Bank of China, Garden Road,Hong Kong. Let me bring you into the picture of the transaction I mentioned in my previous email,before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Mohammed Jassim Ali who worked with the Iraqi Solid Mineral Ministry and also businessman made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of (US$19.5m) in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even early in the war,again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him,We later find out that Mohammed Jassim Ali and his family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home. After further investigation it was also discovered that Mohammed Jassim Ali did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is to come in as the original depositor of the total funds in amounting to US$19,500.000. I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have an attorney who will prepare the legal documents that will back you up as the next of kin to Mohammed Jassim Ali,all what is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names, private phone number 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 Administration in your favor for the transfer of the funds to an account that will be provided by you with my guidance. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue, and Please understand I am ready and willing to share this funds with you equally, that is 50% for you and 50% for me.
