Greetings Friend,


I chose to reach you through (Internet)  because it is the fastest, surest and most secured medium of communication. However, this correspondence is un-official but private, and it should be treated as such. I also guarantee you that this transaction is hitch free from all what you may think of.


I am David Leung  of The Bank of East Asia USA, Clement Branch , California (USA) I am contacting you based on Trust and confidentiality that will be attached to this transaction. 

The Management and  Legal department of our bank in a recenttl  recommended that the account of MR. DAVID ANGELL, who was one of my branch depositors, be 

declared Dormant, confiscated and the depositor's fund sent to the Bank Treasury according to American Banking and financial law. 

Mr. David Angell and the wife died in world trade center as a victim of the September 11,2001 incident that befell the United States of America.The bank has made series of efforts to contact any of the relatives to claim this money but without success,you

 can confirm through this site:


MR. DAVID ANGELL is an account holder in my branch; he owns a dollar account with the sum of 58.2M (Fifty Eight Million, two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) deposited in a Secret account with my branch .In fact, since his death, no next of ki

n of the account holder nor any relative of him has shown up for the claim, this is because he has the account as a secret account thus he left all the documents for the deposit with me. The wife whom he signed in as his next of kin died with him on that 

unfaithful sad day.


This is where I am interested and where I want you to come in. I want you to come in as the relation of the deceased; I will give you the relevant documents and contacts to file the application and then effect the approvals for the transfer of the funds, 

I will be the one to provide the vital documents for the claims of the money and then advise you exactly on how we should handle it.


Please include your telephone/fax number/ Home address when replying this mail and I will give you more information as soon as you indicate your willingness to 

assist in this transaction. I will use my positions to get all internal documentations to back up the claims. Do not be bothered that you are not related in any way to him as I am in position to affix your name as the next of kin. The whole Procedures will last only 9 working days to get the fund retrieved successfully without trace even in future. After the transfer of the money we shall share the money 60-40, which is I will have 60% while you will have 40%.


I will be waiting to hear from you.
