Dear Friend,

Good day to you. It is my pleasure to send this letter to you which I believe will come as a surprise, as I am a complete stranger.

I am Mr. Wang Lee, the manager credit and foreign bills of Industrial and Commercial Bank Of China (ICBC). I am writing in respect of our foreign customer with account number 1194-255-28004 who perished in Egyptian Air Flight with the whole passengers aboard on 31st oct 1999, please click this link for more information about the crash http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/502503.stm

Since the demise of this our customer, I personally has watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of USD$16 Million Dollars which has been with my branch for a very long time.

On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of kin as no one has come up as his relation. And the country law here does not allow such money to stay more than 10 years for the money will be recalled to the government treasury as unclaimed after this period. More information will be given to you on how we can carry out this deal successfully upon receipt of your reply.

I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is a risk free and that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for fund transfer can be finalized within 14 working days. Immediately you receive this letter, Kindly send me an e-mail signifying your interest, Including your mobile and fax numbers for quick communication. I will be very happy if you can treat this deal with the utmost secrecy it demands because of my position in this bank. Your percentage will be discussed upon the receipt of your reply.

Hoping for a very successful business relationship with you. Please contact me on my private email address ([email protected])

Sincerely yours,
Mr. Wang Lee.
