Square Central, Hong Kong.


Thank you for giving me your time, it is of great importance for you to take
care and understand every word which I have written down below; please be
patient and read the explanation in my email.

I am a staff of Lloyds TSB Group Plc. here in Hong Kong attached in Private
Banking Services, I am contacting you concerning a customer and an investment
placed under our banks management; as a matter of factit was 3 years ago. I
would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail private
also to kindly respect the integrity of the information you come by as a
of this email. I contacted you independently of our investigation and no
one is
informed of this communication; I would like to intimate you with certain
that I believe would be of interest to you.

In 2001, the subject matter; Ref: FI/TSB/958/042/0500 came to our bank to
engage in business discussions with our Private Banking Services
Department. He
informed us that he had a financial portfolio of 15.37 million United States
Dollars, which he wished to have us turn over (invest) on his behalf. I
was the
officer assigned to his case; I made numerous suggestions in line with my
duties as the de-facto chief operations officer of the Private Banking
Department,especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into our
We met on numerous occasions prior to any investments being placed, and
I encouraged him to consider various growth funds with prime ratings. The
favored route in my advice to customers is to start by assessing data on 600
traditional stocks and bond managers and 200 managers of alternative
investments. Based on my advice, we spun the money around various
and made attractive margins for our first months of operation,the accrued
profit with interest included, stood at this point at over 16.2 million
States Dollars,this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he
desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments.In mid 2002, he asked that
the money be liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment
requiring cash payments in Europe. He directed that I liquidate the funds and
had it deposited with a firm in Europe. I informed him that our bank would
to make special arrangements to have this done and in order not to circumvent
due process, the bank would have to make a 9.5 % deduction from the funds to
cater for banking and statutory charges. He complained about the charges but
later came around when I explained to him the complexities of the task he was
asking of us. Cash movement across borders has become especially strict since
the incidents of 9/11. I contacted my affiliate in Europe and had the funds
available in mainland Europe, I undertook all the processes and made sure I
followed his precise instructions to the letter and had the funds
deposited in
a security consultancy firm, the firm is a specialist private firm that
deposits from high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations that
valuable products or undertake transactions that need immediate access to
This small and highly private organization is familiar especially to the
placed and well-connected organizations. In line with instructions, the money
was deposited; he told me he wanted the money there in anticipation of his
arrival from Norway later that week. This was the last communication we had,
this transpired aroundbFebruary 25th 2003. In June last year, we got a call
from the security firm informing us of the inactivity of that particular
portfolio. This was an astounding position as far as I was concerned,
given the
fact that I managed the private banking sector I was the only one who knew
about the deposit, and I could not understand why he had not come forward to
claim his deposit.

I made futile efforts to locate him I immediately passed the task of locating
him to the internal investigations department of our bank. Four days later,
information started to trickle in, that he was apparently dead, a person who
suited his description was declared dead of a heart attack in Cannes,
South of
France; we were soon enough able to gather more information and the cause of
death was confirmed. The bank immediately launched an investigation into
possible surviving next of kin to alert about the situation and also to come
forward to claim his estate. If you are familiar with private banking
those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some
of detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he listed no
next of kin. In the field of private banking, opening an account with us
no one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a name;
depositors use numbers and codes to make theaccounts anonymous. This bank
gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to them or held
at the
bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said,
rarely do they nominate next of kin. Private banking clients apart from not
nominating next of kin also usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in
this case; he died Intestate.

In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away,
we instituted our own investigations in good faith to determine who should
right to claim the estate, this investigation for several months were futile.
We have scanned every continent and used our private investigation affiliate
companies to get to the root of the problem. It is this investigation that
resulted in my decision to obtain your contact details and contact you, being
as a foreigner or rather non-Asian, as a potential benefactor of the estate
even if you are in no way affiliated with this individual (the deceased).My
official capacity dictates that I am the only party to supervise the
investigation and the only party to receive the results of the investigation.
What this means, with you being a foreigner, I have considered the fact that
our dear late fellow died with no known or identifiable family member. This
leaves me as the only person with the full picture of what the prevailing
situation is in relation to the deposit and the late beneficiary of the
deposit. According to practice, the firm shall by the end of this financial
year broadcast a request for statements of claim to our bank, failing to
receive viable claims they will most probably revert the deposit back to our
bank.This will result in the money entering our bank's accounting system and
the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the Private Banking Services
Department. This will not happen if I have my way.

What I wish to relate to you might be a smack of unethical practice but I
you to understand something; it is only an outsider to the banking world who
finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world of
private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy
certain offices and oversee certain portfolios; you should have begun by
now to
put together the general direction of what I propose. There is USD$
(Fifteen million, nine hundred and ninety one thousand, six hundred and
four united states dollars) deposited, I alone have the deposit details and
they will release the deposit to no one unless I instruct them to do so.

I alone know of the existence of this deposit for as far as the finance
firm is
concerned, the transaction with our deceased customer concluded when I
sent the
funds to the firm, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are
just customer services and due process. The finance firm has no single
idea of
what's the history or nature of the deposit, they are simply awaiting
instructions to release the deposit to any party that comes forward, and this
is the situation. This bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track
the family of the deceased; they have investigated for months and have
found no
family but however the investigation has officially come to an end.

My proposal; I am prepared to place you in a position whereby an
instruction is
given to the finance firm to officially release the deposit to you as the
closest surviving relation/associate, and all etiquette shall be done in
accordance with the rule of law, I certainly can guarantee you that. By the
common law,the power of bequeathing is coeval with the first rudiments of the
law, and this power has been extended to all a man's Personal and Real estate
(Personalty & Realty). There is no ruling which prevents an inheritance from
being so exhausted by legacies as to render it unworthy of the heir's
acceptance; basically all persons of sound mind are competent to bequeath and
devise real and personal estate, excepting infants, with all this I would say
we have the clear advantage to carry out a smooth and perfect operation
the paper work shall be coordinated in such a way that your status as a sole
beneficiary is confirmed. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share
the money with you in half and no more; that is: I will simply nominate
you as
the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you; afterwards we share
the proceeds 50/50.

I would have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would
drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in claiming the deposit,
but on
the other hand, you as a indifferent foreigner would easily pass as the
beneficiary with the rights to claim, I assure you that I could have the
deposit released to you in a few days. I will simply inform our bank of the
final closing of the file relating to the customer, I will then officially
communicate with the finance company and instruct them to release the deposit
to you; with these two things: all is done.The alternative would be for us to
have the firm direct the funds to another bank with you as account holder,
way there will be no need for you to think of receiving the money from the
firm. We can fine-tune this based on our interactions, I am aware of the
consequences of this proposal and I ask that if you find no interest in this
project that you should discard this mail. I ask also, that you do not be
vindictive or destructive, if my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this
message and forget I ever contacted you; please not destroy my career because
you do not approve of my proposal. You may not know this but people like
me who
have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private
sector, I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good
conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my
industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come
ones' way
once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by and I hope you
understand, because for once I found myself in total control and face to face
with my destiny. These chances won't pass me by, I ask that you do not
my chance, if you will not work with me please let me know, and hence move on
with my life, but do not destroy me; I am a family man and this is an
to provide them with new opportunities. There is a reward for this project
it is a task well worth undertaking, I have evaluated the risks and the only
risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank; I
am the only one who knows of this situation,good fortune will bless you and
plant you into the center of relevance in my life, let?s share the blessing.

If you find yourself interested to work with me,please contact me
through this email account address@hidden if you give me positive
signals, I will initiate this process towards a quick conclusion.It is
necessary to inform you that under no condition should you contact me via
official channels; I will simply deny knowing you and about this project. I
repeat, I do not want you contacting me through our official lines neither
do I
want you contacting me through my official email account. Contact me only
through this email address above; I do not want any direct link between
you and
me. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored
to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality
policy, please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again, note I
am a
family man; I happily married with kids, I send you this mail not without a
measure of fear as to what the consequences might be, but I know within me
nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come
or on a platter of gold,this is the one truth I have learned from my private
banking clients; do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord I
shall have the pleasure of meeting you, after this task has been completed
a meeting.

I await your response.

Yours Sincerely,

Qin Wang
