Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Cootereli Macshane, the Manager of
Standard Chartered Bank Hong Kong. I am 
contacting you with respect to a portfolio amounting to 
$13,099,200.00 USD (Thirteen Million,Ninety Nine 
Thousand Two hundred United States Dollar) deposited 
in my bank.

On the 4th of August 2005  Mr. Christoph Dietrich, a German
consultant and investor with the Hong Kong Ministry of 
Aviation,deposited $9,720,000.00 USD (Nine Million, Seven
Hundred and Twenty Thousand United States Dollar)
under our portfolio management department for
Two years and the deposit matured on the 3rd of
August 2007 which has now  amounted to a
total of $13,099,200.00 USD (Thirteen Million,Ninety Nine 
Thousand Two hundred United States Dollar).

I have sent several routine notification to his forwarding 
address but got no reply. After further investigations,
i finally discovered from his business associates
in the Hong Kong Ministry of Aviation, that Mr. Christoph Dietrich
has since passed away after a brief illness on 
prostrate cancer.On further in dept investigation,
I found out that he died without notifying anybody about
the deposit in my bank.This funds has since 
mature and the roll-over on the funds has also expired.
This sum of $13,099,200.00 USD (Thirteen Million,Ninety Nine 
Thousand Two hundred United States Dollar). is still  in my Bank 
because no has ever come forward to claim it.

In accordance to the Hong Kong constitution, at the expiration 
of four years, such funds will revert to the Government for
financing military operations, such as purchasing of
arms and ammunitions for the military which is in-line
with the constitution.

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. Christoph Dietrich 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 50% for me,40% for you
on your assistance and 10% for charity organizations.

position in my bank and with the aid of my personal
lawyer all documents will be provided to make you the
legal beneficiary and the legality of this project
will correspond with local and international laws of

further information's and modalities that will help
