subject: RE: Legit business offer
Let me start by introducing myself again, I am Mr. Jonathan Symonds, CBE , Independent non-executive Director, Chairman of the Group Audit Committee, Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited [HSBC],Hong Kong.
I will appreciate your response very much. I have outlined the detailed story of how this transaction came about and also I got your email address discretely when I was in search of someone to assist me conclude this transaction. Please read carefully. Before his demise, our client Mr. Ronald Bramlage who owned Roadside Ventures LLC, was an international businessman. He was also with Proactive Communications Inc. as a communications contractor. Mr. Ronald Bramlage made a numbered fixed deposit for 48 calendar months (4Years), with a value of Thirty million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Mr. Ronald Bramlage and his family of five, died in a plane crash [Pilatus PC-12/47 Plane] on Thursday June 7, 2012. You can check the details here [ http://edition.cnn.com/2012/06/07/us/florida-plane-crash ] [http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2156290/Florida-plane-crash-Tragedy-Kansas-family-dies.html ]
The last time he was at my office he confided in me that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Thirty million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it as there is neither next of kin nor any survival of his family. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration 4 years and Nine months the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to late Mr. Ronald Bramlage so that you will be able to receive his funds.
WHAT NEED'S TO BE DONE:
I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have an attorney that will prepare the necessary legal documents that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr. Ronald Bramlage and beneficiary to claim the funds, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favour for you to be able to claim the funds. There is no risk involved at all in this matter, as we are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.
What I require from you is your honest co-operation and I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of the law. Please accept this apologies, keep this confidence and disregard this email if you do not appreciate this proposition I have offered you. All confirmable documents to back up this funds shall be made available to you, as soon as I receive your reply, I shall let you know what is required of you.
