From the desk of:
Dr. Cheng L Cho,
Bank of china,
Peoples Republic Of China.
I am Dr. Cheng L Cho, Bank Manager of Bank of China, Shenzhen Branch, China. I
have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. A British Oil
consultant/contractor with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, mr Raymond
Beck made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued
at Thirty Million US 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 Mr. Raymond Beck died in a plane
crash along with his wife Mrs Doreen Beck in Egypt Air Flight 990, 1999 air
Since we got this information about his death. 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 Mr. Raymond Beck did not declare any kin or relations in all
his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This
sum of Thirty Million 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 10 (Ten) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the
Chinese Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is for you as a foreigner, to stand in as the next
of kin to Mr. Raymond Beck 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 notarization 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 beneficiary/next of kin.
The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of
eighty percent for me and twenty percent for you. There is no risk at all as
all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my
position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this
If you are Interested, please reply immediately via the private email address
above. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and
relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction. Please send
me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication.
Dr. Cheng L Cho.
