Mr.Kee Chong 12 Jalan Si 35, Taman Saujana Indah. Bukit Katil, 75450 Melaka, Melaka Malaysia Tel: +60102577839 Fax:+603 6207 1549 I am Mr. Kee Chong a personal account adviser/officer to a great late industrialist who has an account in one of the top banks. During the course of his bank's last week auditing, it was discovered that since his death no one has come forward to lay claims to his funds. So the bank issued me a memo to provide his next of kin or forfeit the funds. It has been nine years now, since he died in the year 2001 and nobody has operated on his account. After going through some old files in my records, I discovered that my late client died without a [Heir/WILL], hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing as the bank was sold on Monday, 19 September 2010 to another bank. Currently, the present management of the bank is at the point of finalizing all transactions before fully handling over to the new management, which is an advantage to perfect this transaction. These funds will be released to any foreigner with the accurate information of the account, As a matter of fact, I have decided to transfer this money into a safe foreigner's account abroad for investment but I don't know any foreigner, hence I am contacting you as a foreigner because the management of the bank will welcome any foreigner who has correct information to this account which I will give you immediately, if you are interested to do this business with me. I am revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let me down in this business. Before I will disclose the said amount to you, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential. I am sure and have confidence of your ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of this great magnitude. I solicit your assistance to enable us transfer the said amount into your safe account for onward investment. You can either provide us with an existing account or to set up a new bank account immediately to receive this money, even an empty bank account can serve to receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end for this important business trusting in you and believing that you will never let me down either now or in future. As soon as I hear from you, and upon your strong assurance that you will not let me down once the fund goes into your account I will then start to process the transfer of the fund to your account without further delay. If interested contact me urgently for further details. Yours Faithfully, Best Regards Mr. Kee Chong +60102577839
