Dear Friend,

Compliments of the season, I wish you  well in all that you do this year 2007.

I am a potential investor seeking support and suggestions that will enhance my interest in investing in your country with your assistance. I am particularly seeking your favour to help receive and hence invest funds worth $68 Million USD in your personal or company bank account for safety reason.

I am Mr. Chung, Hui-Peng the Foreign Exchange Credit Manager of Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Hong Kong. I hope I will find you absolutely honorable and reputable to entrust such amount of money to for investment.

The fund in question is presently in a fixed deposit account with my bank. On October 6, 2001, an American consultant/contractor with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr. Smith Lawrence made a (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, in my branch. (The said amount includes capital and interest). 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 Hong Kong 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 since he obviously left that column blank in his record with the bank. I have consequently taken total possession of the late manís file to avoid attraction because according to the Hong Kong Law, under china's foreign and defense affairs, at the expiration of 6 (six years), such funds will revert to the ownership of the Chinese Government for financing military operations.

I believe that if Mr. Smith Lawrence were alive he would have strongly opposed to the use of his hard earned money to finance war weapons. I therefore want to seek your support to front you as the relation/ next of kin of the late customer to enable me claim and invest the money. If you will assist to help receive the money, it will be paid stress free into an account that you will provide to the bank. Once the money gets into your account, you would be given a share of 20% of the money, while 70% shall be invested for me and the remaining 10% will be used to offset any expenses that may arise thereto.

 There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by my attorney and with my position as the credit officer, I guarantee the successful execution of this transaction.

Awaiting your urgent reply.

Yours sincerely.
Mr. Chung, Hui-Peng.
