FROM HANG SENG BANK LTD,HONG KONG.GET BACK TO ME ASAP.
FROM THE DESK OF:
MR LEOPOLD RIEDLE
HANG SENG BANK LTD.
DES VOEUX RD.BRANCH
CENTRAL HONG KONG
I am Mr.Leopold Riedle,a Briton and credit officer of Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Hong Kong. I have an urgent
and very confidential business proposition for you.
On october 6, 2002, an American consultant/contractor
with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation,
Mr. Smith Lawrence made a (Fixed) Deposit for
twelve calendar months, valued at US$68,000,000.00
(six-eight 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 Solid
Minerals Corporation that Mr. Smith Lawrence died
from an automobile 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.
I therefore made further investigation and
discovered that Mr. Smith Lawrence did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$68,000,000.00 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 the Hong Kong Law,under china's
foreign and defense affairs,at the expiration
of 5 (five) years,such funds will revert to the
ownership of the chinese Government for financing
military operations,such as purchasing of arms
and ammunitions for the military.
In order to avert this negative development,i will
like to seek for your permission as a foreigner to
stand as the next of kin to Mr. Smith Lawrence so
that the fruits of this old man's labor will not
be use for financing weapons which will further
enhance the courses of war in the world in
The money will be paid into your account for us to
share in the ratio of 60% for me and 30% for you
and 10% 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 my
attorney and with my position as the credit
officer guarantees the successful execution
of this transaction. If you are interested,please reply immediately.
Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and that will help you understand the transaction.You should observe utmost confidentiality,
and rest assured that this transa ction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.
Awaiting your urgent reply.
Thanks and regards.
