From: SHING LI -


Dear Friend,

How are you today and business in your country? I am
Shing Li, Bank Manager of bank of Overseas,Taiwan. I
would respectfully request that you keep the contents
of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of
the information you come by as a result of this mail.
I contacted you independently of our investigation and
no one is informed of this communication. I would like
to intimate you with certain facts that I believe
would be of interest to you. I know you would be
wondering why I am writing you with a request such as
this but I only urge you to read on.

A British Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese
Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr.Courtney Steven made a
numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar
months, the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation that
Mr. Courtney Steven died from an airplane crash.The
bank immediately launched an investigation into
possible surviving next of kin to alert about the
situation and also to come forward to claim his
estate. If you are familiar with private banking
affairs, those who patronize our services usually
prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment
>from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he
listed no next of kin.

In the field of private banking, opening an account
with us means no one will know of its existence,
accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use
numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous. This
bank also gives the choice to depositors of having
their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself,
ensuring that there are no traces of the account and
as I said, rarely do they nominate next of kin.
Private banking clients apart from not nominating next
of kin also usually in most cases leave wills in our
care, in this case; Mr. Courtney Steven died
interstate. In line with our internal processes for
account holders who have passed away, we instituted
our own investigations in good faith to determine who
should have right to claim the estate. This
investigation has for the past months been unfruitful.
We have scanned every continent and used our private
investigation affiliate companies to get to the root
of the problem.

According to the 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 funds. What I wish to relate to
you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to
understand something. It is only an outsider to the
banking world who finds the internal politics of the
banking world aberrational. The world of banking
especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who
occupy certain offices and oversee certain
portfolios,I alone have the deposit details and they
will release the deposit to no one unless evidence of
relationship with the deceased, which I shall provide
you with, is presented. I alone know of the existence
of this deposit for as far as Bank of Overseas is
concerned, the bank's management has no single idea of
what? the history or nature of the deposit. They are
simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to
any party that comes forward.

I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. I ask
that if you find no interest in this project that you
should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be
vindictive and destructive. If my offer is of no
appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever
contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do
not approve of my proposal,If you find yourself able
to work with me, contact me through this email
address. If you give me positive signals, I will
initiate this process towards a conclusion. I wish to
inform you that should you contact me via official
channels; I will deny knowing you and about this
project. I repeat, I do not want you contacting me
through my official phone lines nor do I want you
contacting me through my official email account.
Contact me only through the numbers I will provide for
you and also through this email address. My official
lines are not secure lines as they are periodically
monitored to assess our level of customer care in line
with our Total Quality Management Policy. Please
observe this instruction religiously. Please, again,
note I am a family man, I have a wife and children. I
send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to
what the consequences may be, but I know within me
that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that
success and riches never come easy or on a platter of
gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my
private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence.
If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting,

In closing, please observe utmost confidentiality, and
be rest assured that this transaction would be most
profitable for both of us because I shall require your
assistance to invest my share in your country. Upon
receiving your reply, I will then furnish you with a
more comprehensive detail of this transaction and what
is required of you.
Please reply to my private Email:
Awaiting your urgent reply.
Yours Sincerely,
