I am Mr.Soo Cho, credit officer of CHO HUNG BANK. I have an
urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.
On July 8, 2003, a British Oil consultant/contractor with
the South Korea Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr. Phillip
Morris made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve
calendar months, valued at (Twenty-eight Million American
Dollars 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, that Mr. Phillip Morris died from an auto-mobile

On further investigation, I found out that he died without
making a WILL,and all attempts to trace his next of kin was
fruitless.I therefore made further investigation and discovered that
Mr.Phillip Morris did not declare any kin or relations inall his
official documents,including his Bank Depositpaperwork in my Bank.This
sum of$28,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is
being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No
one will ever come forward to claim it.

According to Laws of South Korea, at the expiration of (five) years,the
money will revert to the ownership of the South Korea Government if
nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to
stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Phillip Morris so that the fruits of
this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt
government officials.

This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately  your full names
and address so that the attorney will  prepare the necessary documents
and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall
employ the services of an attorney for drafting and notarization of the
WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of
probate/administration in  your favor for the transfer.

A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide the will,
then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the
beneficiary/next of kin.

The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio
of 70%for me and 25% for you and 5%  for Expenses Incurred in the
course of the transaction .There is no risk at all as all the paperwork
for this transaction will be done by the attorney and with my position
as the credit officer guarantees the successful execution of this

If you are interested, please reply immediately to my email box.
Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details that
will help you  understand the transaction.
Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy

You should observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable  for both of us because I shall
require your assistance  to invest my share in your country.

Soo Cho
