Zhang He, 
Bank of China.. 
Dear Friend, 
I am Zhang He, Bank Manager of the Bank of China, Shenzhen branch, China. I have an urgent and very 
confidential business proposition for you. 
On June 7, 2000, a consultant/ contractor with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, made a 
numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at Twenty One Million Dollars 
(US$21,000,000.00) only in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to the 
forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered 
from his contract employers, the South Korea Solid Minerals Corporation that he died along with his 
wife from a plane crash. 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 he did not declare any next of kin or 
relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. 
This sum of US$21,000,000.00 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 China, at the expiration of eight (8) years, the money will revert to the 
ownership of the South Korea Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. 
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to assist me in receiving this 
money as I have every machinery set in place to enable you receiver this money via a Finance firm 
based overseas. 
I need your urgent assistance so that this money will not get into the hands of some corrupt 
government officials. This is simple, I will require you to send me your complete names, contact 
address and telephone and fax numbers so that I will be able to apply for the necessary documents 
to enable you receive the money via the Finance firm overseas in your name. After receiving the 
money, we will share in the ratio of 75% for me and 25% for you. Note that the project will be 100% 
risk free. Considering my position as the credit officer of the bank, I guarantee the successful 
execution of this transaction. I have the facilities to obtain relevant documents to enable me lift 
the money from the bank overseas. 
If you are interested, please reply immediately. Upon your response, I will then provide you with 
more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction. 
I will also let you have the contact details of the Finance Firm and the country it is located in 
Overseas. Please send me your confidential TELEPHONE and FAX Numbers for fast communication, as I 
will need to speak to you to personally. You should observe utmost confidentiality, and rest 
assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us. Please reply through my 
secure email
Awaiting your urgent reply. 
Thanks and regards.
