Wing Lung Bank Ltd.
Kowloon Rd Junction Branch.
Western Province,
Hong Kong.

I am Mr.Eric Wong Human resource Manager of Wing Lung Bank Ltd.I have
an important business proposition for you.

On October 6, 2001, a German Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese
Solid Minerals corporation,Mr. Olaf Partetzke made a numbered time
(Fixed)Deposit for twelve calendar months,valued at US$18,500,000.00
(Eighteen Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars only)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 chinese Solid Minerals
Corporation that Mr.Olaf Partetzke died from a heart related ailment.

On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a
WILL,and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.I
therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr.Olaf
Partetzke did not declare any kin or relations in all his official
documents,including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank.This sum
of US$18,500,000.000 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 China,at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the
money will revert to the ownership of the Chinese Government if
nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to
stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Olaf Partetzke 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 favuor for the transfer.The
money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of
60% for me and 35% for you and 5% for Expenses Incurred in the
course of the transaction.

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

You should 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.

Thanks and regards.

Mr.Eric Wong
