Attention: Sir/Madam. RE: URGENT PARTNERSHIP PROPOSAL. I represent a group of potential investors in search of a capable and reliable foreign partner to invest the sum USD$47,500,000.00 for us in a joint venture business with you or in stock and real estate. I am Jeremiah Kam-Wah, secretary, Account Reconciliation Committee (ARC) of my bank. When we are sure of your guarantee, this money shall be transferred directly into your nominated bank account. The said fund was discovered in the cause of our duty (Reconciliation of dormant accounts). A detailed investigated however shows that the customer was killed in a plane crash, leaving no next-of-kin, accordingly the bank has sent out several letters to try to locate the next-of-kin. This money is currently floating in our bank and ready to be transferred as soon as we can provide the next-of-kin. We decided to introduce this business to you as a trusted and reliable partner for obvious reasons: as employees of this bank we cannot receive this money by ourselves expect by the help of a foreigner, acting as next-of-kin. We therefore want you to cooperate with us by providing a neutral bank account that can safely receive this amount of money and at the end of the day we (You and Us) will share the total proceeds at 70/30 (70% for us and 30% for you). All you need to do is send an email to the bank that you are the next-of-kin, acknowledging those letters earlier sent out by the bank and we shall guide you thereafter on how we can claim the funds for our mutual benefits. There is no risk involved in this business and our involvement is with all sense of responsibility. We also hope you understand the partnership/confidential privileges? We therefore, humbly solicit your full cooperation; confidence and support to enable us execute this transfer in a timely manner. We hope you can assist. Please reply us with your acceptance quickly as time is of the essence to us. Best regards, Jeremiah Kam-wah.
