According to the Hong Kong Law regulating cases of
this nature which is also typical to other Asian
countries, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, such
funds will revert to the ownership of the Government

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. Mathew Schneider 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 general.

The money will be paid into your account for us to
share in the ratio of 60% for me and 35% for you and
the balance of 5% will be responsible for the
major/trivial expenses incurred in the course of the
transaction. There is no risk at all as all the
paperwork for this project will be done by my attorney
and with my position as the credit officer guarantees
the successful execution of this project. If you are
interested, please reply immediately.

Upon your response, I shall then provide you with
further information and modalities that will help
you understand the transaction.

You should observe utmost confidentiality, and rest
assured that this project would be most profitable for
both parties because I shall require your assistance
to invest my share in your country.

Awaiting your urgent reply.

Thanks and regards.
Mr. Hon-Hing Wong
