Hello, I am Jeremiah Kam-Wah, head, Dumped Account Reconcilliation Panel (DARP) of my bank. I am presenting to you a case of a customer, a contractor in the Chinese energy industry, whose fixed deposit of USD$47,500,000.00 with my bank has been abandoned since 2003. This fund was discovered in the cause of our reconcilliation. We have however conducted several private investigations to his last contact address in which we discovered that he died in an air crash. Unfortunately, further investigation has revealed that this customer died inter-state as a result of his sudden death. I have however been mandated by my colleagues to urgently contact you for the use of your personal/corporate account to enable us transfer this money to your country for our mutual benefit. To perfect this deal we intend to make you the next-of-kin to the deceased customer and also source the relevant legal documentations pertinent. This is a high profiles deal and our involvement is with all sense of responsibility. We are all men with outstanding banking career and I therefore ask for your full cooperation and confidence, as all necessary documents pertinent for the success will meet the test of any legal scrutiny, to render it unchallengeable. We are willing to offer you 30% of this money as conpensation for your cooperation, while we intend to either invest our 70% share in a joint venture business with you or in stock and real estate. As soon as your response is confirmed I will let you into the procedures. At this point I want to assure you that your true consent, full cooperation and confidentiality are all that are required for us to take full advantage of this great opportunity. Best regards, Jeremiah Kam-wah.
