Hope this day finds you well?Although, I have not met you in person, I 
have received your contact via personal search on the internet; Let me 
start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Zhang Wu a banker in the Hang 
Seng Bank Ltd, Hong Kong .
I have a profitable transaction for you. I was attending a business 
luncheon in September 1999 in china and I got introduced to Mr. 
Andreas Schranner, a renowned German real Estate/property magnate. He 
later employed my services as a banker and investment Consultant, 
Three months later he invited me and told me of his desire to open a 
fixed deposit account, he could fall back to on retirement, under my 
professional guidance and based on my advice he made a fixed deposit 
of Twenty five million United States Dollars only  (US$25, 000, 000) 
in one of our branches.
This deposit was for 5 years and upon maturity I made effort to 
contact my client, l could not reach him. I was forced to travel to 
Germany and there I got the tragic news that, my client Mr.Andreas 
Schranner, his wife Maria, their daughter Andrea Eich, his son in law 
Christian, and their children Maximilian and Katharina, all perished 
in the Monday, 31 July, 2000 plane crash in western German city of 
Please Click here and find out what happened to the Mr. Andreas 
Schranner: after 
further investigation, l also discovered that Mr. Andreas Schranner 
did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the 
paper work of his bank deposit.

And l remember he also confided in me the last time he was at my 
office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, 
Twenty five million United State dollars only (US$25, 000, 000) is 
still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it.

 What bothers me most? Is that according to the laws of my country at 
the expiration of a numbers of years the funds will revert to the 
ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the 
funds? Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like 
you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Mr.Andreas Schranner 
so that you will be able to receive his funds. Should you be 
interested please send me your full names and current residential 
address and I will prefers you to reach me on the email address below 
( and finally after that I shall provide you 
with more details of this operation.
Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
