 Am Mr.V.C.H.Cheng of Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited
 Hong Kong . I am getting in touch with you regarding the estate of a 
 deceased client with similar last name as yours and an investment placed 
 under our banks management.
 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 contact you independently and no one is informed of this communication.
 In 2003 a Hong Kong businessman who was our Client, made a fixed deposit 
 of $18.350.000.00 (Eighteen million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only) 
 in my branch, a number of notices were sent to him when it was due, 
 but no response came from him till date.  We later found out that he
 along with his family had been killed in the tsunami disaster that 
 happened in Asia that hit their home.
 what bothers me most is according to the laws of my country at the 
 expiration of 7 years the funds will revert to the Hong Kong Government 
 if nobody comes for the funds.

 After more inquiry it was also discovered that the late business man did 
 not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work 
 of his bank deposit This  means that he died inestate and this is the reason
 i am writing you is because you share the same last  name What I expect from you
 is trust and commitment, 
   I want this large sum of money transferred with your assistance and you 
 should have nothing to worry about regarding legality AT ALL. All that is 
 required is your honest co-operation and I guarantee that this will be 
 executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect me and you
 from any breach of the law.What I propose is that since I have exclusive 
 access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these funds. 
 You do not have to have known him personally. I know this might
 be a bit heavy for you but please trust me on this. For all your troubles 
 I propose that we split the money in half(50/50). 
 In the banking circle this happens every time. The other option is that the money
 will revert back to the state.

  Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this email 
 if you do not appreciate this proposal I have offered you. 
 All confirmable documents to back up this fund shall be made available to you,
 as we move on; I shall let you know what is required of you. Your earliest 
 response to this letter will be appreciated. 
 I want to know if you are willing to follow up this business seriously before I can give you
 more details about this transaction.

 I know within me that 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 banking clients. 
 Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, 
 we should act swiftly on this. Please get back to me immediately via the 
 above email.

 I await your response.
 VC Cheung
