MR. WOO CHONG
CHINA TRUST COMMERCIAL BANK.
NAN KAN BRANCH, TAIWAN
REPUBLIC OF CHINA
I am Mr. Woo Chong, Bank Manager of Chinatrust Commercial Bank, Nan Kan branch, Taiwan, R.O.C.
I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.
On June 6, 1998, a British Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation,
Mr. Smith Lawrence made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months,
valued at US$30,000,000.00 (Thirty Million 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. Smith Lawrence died from an automobile accident.
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. Smith Lawrence did not declare
any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my
Bank. This sum of US$30,000,000.00 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 5 (five) years, the money will
revert to the ownership of the Chinese Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin
to Mr. Smith Lawrence 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 90% for me and 10% 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 transaction.
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
Please observe utmost confidentiality, and 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
