39-02 Main Street,

Flushing, NY 11354, USA

Greetings friend,

I am Mr. Edward Kong, the Vice President and Branch Manager of The Bank of East Asia (USA), Flushing Branch Flushing New York, USA. I write to seek your consent to carry out a transaction that would be highly beneficial to you and me. I know you may be wondering why I am contacting you for this despite all the friends and relations that I have but I decided to do this with an unknown person to avoid any form of blackmail in the future. Mr. Alvin Peter Kappelmann Jr was an account holder with my bank. I have been his account officer for 11 years before his death. He died during the World Trade Center bombing in September 11 2001. Please confirm from this site:

http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2001/memori ... /2632.html

since his death, the management of my bank has made series of efforts to locate his family but all efforts were proved abortive. I also carried out

series of research to find his family but it was confirmed that the mother who was the only surviving member of the family died at the hearing of the son’s death. He was already divorced before his death and due to this fact; no one was able to claim the fund he deposited in my bank legally because there was no will to it. He had a secret dollar account with my bank worth the sum of $58.200,000.00 (Fifty Eight Million, Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) with an interest agreement of 6.7%, which have been for the past 9 years.

My purpose of contacting you now is this:

My bank during the last executive board meeting resolved that if by the end of this year and there is no beneficiary to the said account, the account will be confiscated and the fund sent to the bank treasury and this is where I am interested in and wants you to come in:

I want you to come in as the Next of Kin/Beneficiary to this account. I have all the titled documents to back your claim and as the Vice President and Manager of this branch, it is in my power to carry out any form of

verification on the beneficiary of the said fund and process the fund wire

without any problem. I want you to know that this is legal, 100% risk free as all the titled documents would be changed to your name, and the fund wired to any bank account you wish to have it wired to.

Please note that I am willing to let you have 30% of the total sum while you give me 70% when the fund finally gets to your nominated bank account. Also, note that I am willing to go extra mile to make this a success because if anything goes wrong, then I stand the risk of losing my job and even go to jail for trying to carry out such transaction. This is why I am contacting you so that we can put heads together and take care of this transaction within now and the next 9 days.

Kindly get back to me immediately so that I advice you on how this would becarried out.
