Hello,
Thank you for your email! However, I don't know if this will fit in our budget. Is there anything better you could do?

Hello friend,

Thanks for your response. I am the head of audit at my bank, and we are
conducting a standard process investigation in relation to matters
involving a client who shares the same name as yours (Cochran) and also the
circumstances surrounding investments of $260,002,000 made by the client at
our bank.

The client died intestate and nominated no next of kin to inherit the title
over the investments made with my bank. The essence of this communication
with you is to request you provide me information on three issues:

1-Are you aware of any relative/relation who shares your same name whose
last known contact address was in USA?

2-Are you aware of any investment of considerable value made by such a
person at Bank of China, Hong Kong?

3-Can you establish beyond doubt your eligibility to assume status of next
of kin to the deceased?

It is important you urgently respond back whether you are familiar with
this individual or not so that I may put an end to
the inquiries surrounding this person. I am constrained from providing you
with more detailed information at this point but will upon your response.

Thank you for accommodating my inquiry.

Regards.

Hello friend,

Thank you for your response to my previous mail. I am seeking your consent
to present you as the next of kin to have the funds of $260,002,000
released to you by my Bank. I will provide all legal documents that will
make you the next of kin to the funds and since I hold the key to this
transaction, there won't be any problem as far as you follow my
instruction rigorously.

Given that you share a similar surname with the account owner Dr. Gregg
Cochran, I would like us to claim the funds after which you will keep 40%
as your share and send 60% to me. I will hire an attorney who will prepare
the necessary documents that will make you the legal beneficiary of the
funds. I will also facilitate the release of the funds to you using my
staff privileges to further guarantee a successful transfer of the funds
from my bank. However, you will be required to open a secret numbered
offshore account to ensure the swift and easy transfer of the funds from my
bank without getting into trouble with any agencies or governments.

If interested, kindly get back to enable me proceed with this because we
have limited time to evacuate the funds from my bank before it is
discovered and claimed by my bank management or turned over to the Chinese
government. I can provide you with late Dr. Gregg Cochran's account
statement for the purpose of legitimacy of the funds.

Regards.

Hello friend,

Thanks for responding to my previous mail. I will make careful research for
a suitable bank in a secure location that operates secret number offshore
account and will suggest contact for you to have them open a secret number
offshore online account in your name where I will transfer the money
temporarily from my bank here in Hong Kong before you can transfer it to a
local account in your country or any location of your choice, then after
you will send my 60% to an account I will provide later. I understand the
offshore account would require an opening deposit fee you will be
responsible for, not sure of the amount now until we get a suitable bank.

If you wish to proceed, please provide me with your Full name, Address,
Age, Occupation and contact Phone number for the attorney to start
processing the required legal documents to make you the rightful beneficial
to the funds. Feel free to ask questions, I will be glad to provide any
information you need.

I await your response.

Regards.

Hello,
That is reasonable, but do you think you can go into more detail about your main product? What is it about, exactly?
