Subject: Hi from Robert.


My name is Robert Burnett. Am in need of the help of a trustworthy person resident in Hong Kong to help me retrieve a very good friend’s funds (which are quite substantial) from the Yorkshire Bank UK, we estimate the amount to be in the region of Two Million, Five hundred thousand Great British Pounds Sterling. He passed away without any next of kin and with our being in jobs which require us to be here full time, I require your help and time for which you will be duly compensated, my friend has a Chinese ancestry which is why we are having so much trouble accessing what is rightfully ours.

My wife and I both intend to move to Hong Kong as soon as this matter is resolved to begin our retirement.

Please let me know if this is something you would be interested in

Kindest regards,
