Good Day To You I am Mr. Chen Jiang, Bank Manager of a Bank in China.I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.On November 6, 2001, a British Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, Made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$30,000,000.00 (Thirty Million United States Dollars) 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 fromhis contract employers, the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation that he died from anautomobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he died without
making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. Itherefore made further investigation and discovered that he 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 Bankand 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 ofRepublic of China, at the expiration of 6 (six) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Chinese 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 the man 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.shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and authorization of the
WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of obate/administrationin your favor for the transfer.A bank account in any part of the world that you
will provide 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 50% for me and 50% for you. There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be doneby the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful
execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediatelyvia the private email address email@example.com Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevantdocuments that will help
you understand the transaction. Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication. Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that thistransactionwould be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance
