Dear Friend, I write to solicit your assistance about a deal on an investment account totaling 10.5million USD of late Mr. Alfred who is deceased and has left no blood relative as next of kin to be the beneficiary of these funds. My proposal to you is that since I have exclusive access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these funds. On verification, which will be the details I make available to Bank holding the funds, my company through our lawyer will instruct the bank to make payments to you.I know this sounds a bit heavy and complex but believe and trust me as it is achievable. This practice is not unusual in the banking sector here in China. The other option is that the funds will revert back to the state, where it may be shared by State officials.At the successful completion of this project we shall split the funds 50/50 between us. Nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private investment clients, We should act swiftly on this if you are in agreement , please get back to me immediately, I am contacting you independently and no one is informed of this communication. Please do keep this confidential. I await your prompt response on my private email. firstname.lastname@example.org Regards, Marcus Chang
