Dear Friend,

Seeing this email message would be a surprise to you but kindly read
it carefully and you will understand the reason why I am contacting
you for this purpose. However, this correspondence is UN-official and
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 Mr.
Ming Mui, Vice President & Branch Manager, Industrial and Commercial
Bank of China (USA) NY, Canal Street Main Branch, New York,and I am
contacting you based on Trust and confidentiality that will be
attached to this transaction.

The Management and the Legal department of our bank (Industrial and
Commercial Bank of China (USA) NY) in a recent meeting recommended
that the account of late Mr. Wiiliam Aucoin, who was one of my branch
depositor,should be declared Dormant, confiscated and the depositor's
fund sent to the Bank Treasury according to U.S.A Banking and
financial law. Late William Aucoin died on 28th June 2010 of cancer
at the Aventura Hospital and Medical Center in Aventura,Florida.The
bank having made several efforts to contact any of his relatives to
claim this money but without success decided to confiscate the fund
and declare it public fund.

Late Mr. Wiiliam Aucoin was an account holder in my branch; he owns a
dollar account with a huge sum of money deposited in a Secret account
with my branch. In fact, since his death, no next of kin of the
account holder nor any relative of him has shown up for the claim of
this fund, this is because he has the account as a secret account thus
he left all the documents for the deposit with me as his account
officer and financial advisory.

This is where I am interested and where I want you to come in, I want
you to come in as a relative of the deceased; do not bother that you
are not in any way related to him because I am in position to affix
your name as the next of kin to the deceased and no one will question
it since I am the officer in charge of the account. I will give you
the relevant documents and contacts to file the application and then I
will effect the approvals for the transfer of the fund to your
nominated bank account. I will be the one to provide the vital
documents for the claims of the money and then advise you exactly how
we should handle it.

Please include your telephone number when replying this mail so I can
call to give you more information as soon as you indicate your
willingness to assist in this transaction. 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 to your
nominated bank account, we shall share the money 60-40.that is I will
have 60% while you will have 40%.

Kindly respond promptly so that I can advice you on what next to
do.Please reply to this my home email address:([email protected])
