Good Day,

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 from his
contract employers, the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation that he 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 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 (Thirty Million United States Dollars) 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 Republic
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.We shall employ
the services of an attorney for drafting and authorization of the WILL and
to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in
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 eneficiary/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.

Awaiting your urgent reply via my email address.

Thanks and regards.
Chen Jiang.
