Hello Friend, Ok, we've never met as far as I know, but already we are friends. This bodes well.
I am Mr.Yi Kwan, supervisor on investment in Standard Chartered Bank,Hong Kong. *nods* Nice to know. A good, solid, responsible job, so you must be a responsible kind of man. Again, bodes well. I am feeling more excited about this as I read.
I have a sensitive, confidential brief from Hong Kong and I am asking for your partnership in re- profiling funds ($18,500,000.00 USD). Ooh! "Reprofiling" - is that like "laundering"? Because I kind of have a feeling that's illegal? Isn't it?
What I require from you is your honest co-operation and I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of the law. Aah, no, clearly it isn't illegal. My mistake. Thanks for making that clear, Mr Yi Kwan. And thanks for being so careful to reassure me that I will be protected from any breach of the law. We don't want to get into trouble, do we?
Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this email if you do not appreciate this proposition I have offered you. Of course! Again, thank you for being so courteous and thoughtful. I am trusting you more and more with every word you write.
All confirmable documents to back up this fund shall be made available to you, as soon as I receive your reply via: firstname.lastname@example.org I shall let you know what is required of you. I will await your instructions. Do I need to get a ski mask? Or a speedboat? Or some diamond-tipped drill bits that can cut through bank vault shielding? Or anything? Just let me know, I will be here, fake passport at the ready, money sacks poised to receive my re-profiled (but legitimate) huge piles of cash.
I can't wait.
Regards from,Yi Kwan
