ATTN: PARTNER. My name is Mr. Peter Tung Po, a member of Independent Committee of Eminent Persons (ICEP), Hong Kong. ICEP is charged with the responsibility of finding bank accounts in Hong Kong belonging to non-Hong Kong Citizen, which has remained dormant since World War II. It may interest you to know that in July of 1997, the Hong Kong Banker's Association published a list of dormant accounts originally opened by non-Hong Kong citizens. These accounts had been dormant since the end of World War II (May 9, 1945).Most belonged to Holocaust victims. The continuing efforts of the Independent Committee of Eminent Persons (ICEP) have since resulted in the discovery of additional dormant accounts-54,000 in December, 1999. The published lists contain all types of dormant accounts, including interest-bearing Savings Accounts, Security Accounts, Safe Deposit Boxes, Custody Accounts, and Non-interest-bearing transaction Accounts. The Claims Resolution Tribunal (CRT) handles processing of all claims on accounts due non-Hong Kong citizens. A dormant account of ORDNER ADELE with a credit balance of 45,000,000 US dollar plus accumulated interest was discovered by me. The beneficiary was murdered during the holocaust era, leaving no WILL and no possible records for trace of heirs. The Claims Resolution Tribunal has been mandated to report all unclaimed funds for permanent closure of accounts and transfer of existing credit balance into the treasury of Hong Kong Government as provided by the law for management of assets of deceased beneficiaries who died interstate (living no wills). Being a top Executive at ICEP, I have all secret details and necessary contacts for claim of the funds without any hitch. The funds will be banked in Europe, being a safe haven for funds and we can share the funds and use in investment of our choice. Due to the sensitive nature of my job, I need a Foreigner to HELP claim the funds. All that is required is for you to provide me with your details for processing of the necessary Legal and Administrative claim documents for transfer of the funds to you. Kindly provide me with your full name, address, and telephone/fax. I will ensure that the Funds is transferred to a secure, numbered account in your name outside HONGKONG, but in Europe of which you will be capable of accessing the funds gradually and transferring to your country and other banks of choice in the world. My share will be 75%percent and your share is 25% percent of the total amount. The Holocaust Claims Processing Office has put funds in Escrow awaiting submission of valid claims for necessary disbursement. Due to security reasons, reply to me via email only. You may reply to me securely on through this email address (email@example.com). Your urgent response to this proposal via my email address will be highly appreciated. My Regards MR PETER TUNG PO.
