Dear Beneficiary, This is my second mail to you since i did not hear from you the first time. Mrs. Helena Chang, 58, from China is claiming that you authorised him to receive a fund that has been deposited on your name since 2010 with our bank here. I am a junior staff of the bank but i stumbbled into a file bearing your name as the original beneficiary while an application has been made for change of name and beneficiary. All i need now is for you to inform me if you are aware of this arrangement as soon as possible to enable me guide you on how best to stop this move. Please you must not expose my identity to the bank because they will not find this funny but do not forget me at the end of the day. It is very important that you handle this mail as a matter of urgency to avoid late approach. Even if you have no details of this transaction before now, i am here to guide you till the end. please respond through my private email id: email@example.com Thanks, Marcos Heinz
