Korean Connection?

So far I only received these from the Nigeria Connection, here's the first from Korea:


From: "sscckk14"



I am Mr. 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$45,000,000.00 (Fourty Five 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 fruitless.

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$45,000,000.00 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 funds.

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 communication.

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


Well, Mr. Seung Chang, what can I say? I'm really deeply moved by your generosity: 10%. Are you a bit short of cash over there in Korea? The Nigerians usually offer 15%+, I don't even get out of bed for less than 20%. When can I expect your improved offer?
