Thank you very much for your reply, and your interest in this deal, I am also glad to note that you are a dependable and trustworthy person whom I can rely on for your capabilities to handle this deal.Like I said before, due to this issue on my hands now, it became necessary for me to seek your assistance, I appreciate the fact that you are willing to assist me in executing this project, and also you will help me in investing my money in your country, I am quite certain about that, perhaps there are lots of other transactions we could have together apart from this, I have being in the financial sector for many years though I try as much as possible to diversify my interests by exploring new frontiers.
You should not have anything to worry about, I will do everything lawfully required to ensure that the project goes smoothly, it shall pass through all Laws of International Banking, you have my word. The attorney will prepare the necessary Affidavits, which shall put you in place as next of kin; he will obtain the necessary clearances from the Hong Kong authorities that will cover all the aspects involved in this transaction.
This attorney shall handle all matters of probate on your behalf, he will have all the documents perfected, and with these documents he shall come forward to my bank to apply for the immediate release and transfer of the funds to the account you shall open. I have been a banker for many years and I know perfectly how the system works.
Having resolved to entrust this transaction into your hands, I want to remind you that it needs your commitment and diligent follow up. If you work seriously, the entire transaction should be over in a couple of days.

READ THE FOLLOWING AND GET BACK TO ME:

Firstly, I will want to know precisely the type of occupation that you do and how old you are, you should note that this project is highly capital intensive, this is why I have to be very careful, I need your total devotion and trust to see this through. I know we have not met before, but I am very confident that we will be able to establish the necessary trust that we need to execute this project.
I am now in contact with a foreign online bank; I now intend that you open an account in your name in this foreign bank. The money would be transferred to your account which you will open in the bank for both of us, this is the best way, I have found; it will protect us from my bank.
I want us to enjoy this money in peace when we conclude. So you should listen to my instructions and follow them religiously.
Also you have to know that I cannot transfer this money in my name, as my bank will be aware that it is from me, this is where I need you.As result of this, you will have to open an account in the corresponding bank. After this, the money will be banked online for both of us. We can then instruct the bank to transfer our various shares into our respective home bank accounts. I will also perfect the documentations with the assistance of my attorney to give the transaction the legal right like I told you in my previous email,your only FINANCIAL OBLIGATION is to open and activate your account with the correspondent bank that I shall provide for you.
Before I commence, I will need you to send me a copy of any form of identification (Driver's license, Work ID or International passport). I want to be sure that I am transacting with the correct person. As soon as I get these from you, I will commence the paper work with the assistance of my attorney. I hope you will understand why I need all these, the money in question is big and I want to ensure that I know you well before I proceed to give you all the details to commence the project, I will send the name and contact details of the bank and their website to you so that you can commence communication with them.
Ensure that you keep this project CONFIDENTIAL, do not discuss it with anybody, because of the confidential nature of this transaction and my work.
Please reply soonest.

Regards,Kwok Chuen.

Hello Benjamin,
I am in receipt of your mail and await the fill and sign documents .I thank you for showing some great responsibility and trust. I must also let you know that I feel comfortable transacting with you especially after your last email even though we have not had a verbal conversation,please do not let me down.And also it is your sole responsibility as my partner to set up the offshore/on-line account We cannot use your home bank account because of the strict banking policies worldwide and the magnitude of the funds involved.  In this light,I included the bank details so that you can make inquiries on offshore/on-line account opening. I advice you like I said earlier that you open an account with the bank so that once the funds are released, they will be moved straight into your account and the transfer will not attract the monetary bodies, as the transfer be will seen as in-house.(as the bank has the same telex type with my Bank). You can then transfer the funds in safe bits to your private account for both of us.
