Let me start by introducing my self, I am Soo Won Lee, Portfolio Manager for
the Nanyang Commercial Bank in China, I am getting in touch with you regarding
the estate of a deceased client with an investment placed under our banks
management 7 years ago.
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 mail. I contact you independently and no one is
informed of this
communication.In 2004, the subject matter; first name Harrison, then his last
name Morgan, came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our
private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of
37.363 million United States dollars, which he wished to have us invest on his
Based on my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and made
attractive margins for our first months of operation, the accrued profit and
interest stood at this point at over 40 million United States Dollars. In mid
2004, he instructed that the principal sum ($37.363M) be liquidated because he
needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash payments in Hong Kong. We
got in touch with a specialist bank in Hong Kong the Standard Chartered Bank
(SCB) who agreed to receive this money for a fee and make cash available to
Harrison. However Standard Chartered Bank got in touch with us last year that
this money has not been claimed. On further enquiries we found out that
Harrison died of a heart attack in Malaysia, which means he died intestate. He
has no next of kin and the reason I am writing you.
What I propose is that since I have exclusive access to his file, you will be
made the beneficiary of these funds. My bank will contact you informing you
that money has been willed to you. On verification, which will be the
make available to my bank, my bank will instruct SCB to make payments to you.
You do not have to have known him. I know this might be a bit heavy
for you but
please trust me on this. For all your troubles I propose that we split the
money in two equal half. The other option is that the money will
revert back to
Nobody is getting hurt; this is a lifetime opportunity for us.I hold
the KEY to
these funds, and as a Chinese National we see so much cash and funds being re-
assigned daily. I would want us to keep communication for now strictly by the
above email and also by telephone and fax numbers which I will send to you in
my next communication even though my spoken English is not so good. Please,
again, note I am a family man; I have a wife and children. I send you
not without a measure of fear as to the consequences, but I know
within me that
nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy
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, we should act swiftly on this. Please pardon my
Please get back to me immediately and let me know if you are ready to move
ahead with this transaction so i can provide you with more details on how we
will receive the funds.
I await your response.
