    MR. Dr. Seung Chang

    I am Dr. Seung Chang, Bank Manager of Korea International Merchant Bank
    ,Seoul,South Korea. I have urgent and very confidential business
    proposition for you.

    On June 6, 1998, a British Oil consultant/contractor with the South Korean
    Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr.Bryan Daniels made a numbered time (Fixed)
    Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$30,000,000.00 (Thirty
    Million Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine
    notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we
    sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the
    South Korean Solid Minerals Corporation that Mr. Bryan Daniels died from
    an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he died
    without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was

    I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Bryan
    Daniels did not declare any kin or relations in all his official
    documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of
    US$30,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being
    rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will
    ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of Republic of South
    Korean,at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the
    ownership of the South Korean Government if nobody applies to claim the

    Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to
    stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Bryan Daniels so that the fruits of
    this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt
    government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide
    immediately your full names and address so that the attorney will
    prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in
    place as the next of kin. We shall employ the services of an attorney
    for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary
    documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the
    transfer. A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide
    will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the
    beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us
    to share in the ratio of 90% for me and 10% for you.

    There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will
    be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees
    the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested,please
    reply immediately via the private email address above. Upon your response,
    I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that
    will help you understand the transaction.

    Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy

    Please observe utmost confidentiality, and 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.
    Awaiting your urgent reply via my email address
    Thanks and regards.

    Mr. Seung Chang

  6. Some people has believing it in fact some very rich people has been caught by the scam (which proves at least that being rich doesn't mean being intelligent althouh it is true that it is rather "ordinary business scheme" for some kind of businessmen :D) for example a swiss millionair has been threatened to give all his millions once he went to visit them. Otherwise they can even come and visit you by taking a flight if ever you are catched by their scam. Some people has just been killed also (cases only for people going abroad). So it's not just a scam it's dangerous crime. I know this because a friend of mine received that years ago (through mail at that time with luxury paper because it was addressed to "elites") and asked me what I think about and so I enquired.
