Although, I do not know you in person, I have received your contact via personal search on the 
Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Zhang Wu a banker in the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Hong

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

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 
years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim 
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 
me on the email address below
