He contacted me via email to propose a supposed business with a profit of 12, 8 million other thing that struck me is that in the social networking site Linkedin absolutely all your contacts and all have their names "Said". Another thing that surprised me is that he sent me the same email contact 3 times.

How are you doing today?. Thank you very much for responding to my email and your interest in this transaction. I want you to know that this transaction is very much genuine and real. You have nothing to worry about for I have put all necessary modalities that will ensure the success of this transaction.
My client Mr. Yoshi Yuu who was a Japanese big time business man that deals with heavy under ground cable for telecommunications, died with his family during the unprecedented Earthquake and Tsunami that occurred 11th March 2011 (see link bellow).
After further investigation it was discovered that Mr. Yoshi Yuu did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. So, US$12,800,000.00 (Twelve Million Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) is lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 24 (twenty four) months the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.
Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Mr. Yoshi Yuu so that you will be able to file for claim to receive the funds. You should not have anything to worry about, I will do everything legally required to ensure that this project goes smoothly, it shall pass through all Laws of International Banking, you have my word.
Having resolved to entrust this transaction into your hands, I want to tell you that it requires your commitment and diligent follow up. If you work seriously, the entire transaction should be over in a couple of weeks. This project is highly capital intensive, this is why I have to be very careful. I need your total devotion and trust to see this through. I know we have not met before, but I am very confident that we will be able to establish the necessary trust that we need to execute this project.
Before I commence, I will need you to send me the following information:
(1) Your Full Names: (2) Your Phone No: (3) Your Current Residential Address: (4) Your Occupation: (5) Your Age and Sex:
As part of the modalities/plans on ground to ensure a hitch free transaction, I am already in contact with a foreign corresponding online bank; I intend that you open an account in your name in this foreign bank. The money would be transferred in your name to the account which you will open in the bank for both of us, this is the best way I have found, and it will protect us from my bank here. The reason why I want you to set up a new account in this bank for the transfer is because the bank is our corresponding bank and it has the same telex type with my bank; it will make the transfer be seen as in-house transfer and protect us from the attention of any monetary bodies or raise any red flag. I want us to enjoy this money in peace when we conclude. So you should listen to my instructions and follow them religiously. Also you have to know that I cannot transfer this money in my name as my bank will be aware that it is from me, this is where I need you. After this, the money will be banked online for both of us. We can then instruct the bank to transfer our various shares into our respective home bank accounts. I will also perfect the documentations with the assistance of my attorney to give the transaction the legal right.
Before I proceed, I will need you to send me a copy of any form of your identification (Driverâ€™s License or international passport through email attachment); I want to be sure that I am transacting with the correct person to avoid any form of impersonation. I hope you will understand why I need all these, the money in question is big and I want to ensure that I know you well and to avoid future impersonation by some one else. I will send you the certificate of deposit that was issued to Mr. Yoshi Yuu as at when the money was deposited. I will also send the name and contact details of the offshore bank so that you can commence communication with them after I have received your identification.
Ensure that you keep this project confidential; do not discuss it with anybody, because of the confidential nature of this transaction and my work.
I am awaiting your quick response.
Regards, Mr. Song Chen
