Dear Friend,
I am Mr.Newman Chris, a staff with HSBC Bank PLC LONDON. I have urgent and very confidential 
business proposal for you. A 

Spanish Goldconsultant/contractor with the South African Mining Company, MRS CEPARO GRANT ROMAN 
made a numbered time (Fixed) 

Deposit for (3) Three years, valued at Ј9.5M (Nine Million,Five Hundred Thousand Great British 
Pounds 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 South African Solid Gold Corporation that 

an underground train crash in the eastern city of Valencia  Spain as Victims of the Tuesday,4 July 
2006, Incident that befall 

the Spanish, the  bank is still unrelenting in its bid to contact any of the relatives to claim 
money, you can confirm through this website: 

On further investigation, I found out that she died without making a WILL, and all attempts to 
trace his next of kin was 

fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that MRS CEPARO GRANT ROMAN  did 
not declare any kin or 

relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum 
of Ј9.5M is still sitting in 

my Bank. my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to MRS 

like you to provide immediately the below information so that the attorney will prepare the 
necessary documents and affidavits 

that will put you in place as the next of kin. The Attorney will draft and notarization of the WILL 
and to obtain the necessary 

documents and letter of probate/administration in your favour for the transfer.

The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 50% for me  and 50% for 
you. There is no risk at all 

as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as a 
prominent official of HSBC 

guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply 
immediately via the private email 

address above. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant 
documents that will help you 

understand the transaction.
Please send me the below information, Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that 
this transaction would be
