How are you today and business in your country? I am Shing Li, Bank
Manager of bank of Overseas, Taiwan. I would respectfully request
that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect
the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this
I contacted you independently of our investigation and no one is
informed of this communication. A British Oil consultant/contractor
with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr. Courtney Steven
made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit of $30,000,000.00 for twelve
calendar months and not too long Mr. Courtney Steven died from an
airplane crash. The bank immediately launched an investigation into
possible surviving next of kin to alert about the situation and also
to claim his estate. If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes.
In his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin. Please observe utmost confidentiality, and be 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 country.
Upon receiving your reply, I will then furnish you with a more comprehensive detail of this transaction and what is required of you. Please reply to my private Email:firstname.lastname@example.org
Awaiting your urgent reply.

This transaction is 100% safe and legal as you’ll get to see
as we go along. All procedures leading to the transfer of the
funds ($30,000,000.00) to your local account through our
correspondent bank will be secured with strict adherence
to statutory provision of the law. Due to the very sensitive
nature of this pending transaction, please bear with me if i
am being a little vague at this early stage as i am as skeptical

transaction, I request your assistance to stand as a foriegn
partner as i intend to establish you legally as the next of kin

percentage of the total funds as your share and as an expression
of my gratitude for your assistance and partnership, thus
encouraging you to guaranty that my share of the funds will be
secured and transferred to me as when required. I shall require
some information and a brief profile of yourself and upon receipt
of the information; I shall immediately begin the processes
which will lead to the release of the funds to you as the bonafide
executor and next of kin of the depositor going by the documents
that will be secured. I do hope to do my best but you should be able to have an account opened in our affilaite bank in UK to receive the fund immediately it is transfer from here.

investment opportunities in your country as i might invest the
remaining part of my share of the funds in your country. It is
my hope that the funds can be transferred into your account
