False Email From Kim Dong-Woo and Jenkin Hui of Hong Kong

Bills & Exchange Manager
O’Melveny & Myers LLP (Hong Kong Branch)
Email: jhui.project0@yahoo.com.hk
Tel: +85-230-107-460

Dear Sir, Madam,

I am Mr. Kim Dong-Woo, the Bills and exchange Manager of O’Melveny & Myers LLP, a private assets Management firm here in Hong Kong.


As assets Manager, i discovered an abandoned sum of USD$8,600,000:00 (Eight Million Six Hundred Thousand United states Dollars) that belongs to one of our deceased/ foreign customers who was an estate developer both in Asia and Europe.

Since His death, none of his next-of-kin or relatives has come forward to lay claims to the deposit as the heir. Recently, the bank management contacted us on this matter, requesting that we should notify the next of kin to the deceased customer to claim the funds and we are yet to provide the next of kin to lay claims to the funds. I know that our client had no living successor to his estate.

Upon this discovery, i now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased because you share similar surnames. All documentation will be carefully worked out by me for the funds USD$8,600,000:00 (Eight Million Six Hundred Thousand United states
Dollars) to be released in your favor as the beneficiary's next of kin. All I require from you is your sincerity; honesty and co-operation to enable us see this transaction through to success. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from
any breach of the law.

You will be compensated with 40% of the fund, 55% for me and 5% for any expenses incurred during the course of this operation. Please indicate your interest to finalize this transaction with me by responding to my private email account: jhui.project0@yahoo.com.hk for further

I await a response from you shortly so that more details can be released to you on the above subject.

Mr. Jenkin Hui
