Dear Sir/Ma,

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Zhanzhi Hong credit   officer of the Hang Seng Bank 
Ltd.  I have an urgent and very confidential   business proposition for you.
I honestly apologize and hope I do not cause you much embarrassment by    contacting you through 
this means for a transaction of this  magnitude, but this is due to confidentiality and prompt 
access reposed on this   medium, sorry my English is not very good. Furthermore, due to this  issue 
 on my hands now, it became necessary for me to seek your  assistance, and it is imperative for me 
to know your opinion.
On April 6 ,1999, an American Oil consultant/contractor with the   Chinese Petroleum and Chemical 
corporation Mr. Richard Nault made a numbered   time(Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, 
valued at   US$30,000,000.00 (Thirty Million 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, the 
Hong Kong Petroleum and Chemical Corporation  that Mr. Richard Nault died from an automobile 
On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a   WILL and all attempts to 
trace his next of kin were fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Richard   Nault did not declare any 
kin or relations in all his official  documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. 
This sum of
US$30,000,000.00 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 Hong Kong, at the   expiration of 5(five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of 
the Hong Kong 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. Richard Nault 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. 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 
transaction. If you are  really  interested in doing this business with me please reply immediately 
 to  this email address,
Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and   relevant documents that will 
help you understand the transaction.
Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy  communication.
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 
Awaiting your urgent reply.
Thanks and regards.
Mr. Zhanzhi Hong
