My friend Mr. Chen Shui-bian has presented a subtle offer which will need the help of a partner like you to complete successfully. Mr. Chen Shui-bian is in a difficult situation and he must immediately relocate certain sums of money out of the Bank of China in Beijing, China. More so, this must be done in such a way that it must not be tied to Mr. Chen. The sum is currently deposited in the name of an existing legal entity. Your role will be to:

[1]. Act as the original beneficiary of the funds.
[2]. Receive the funds into a business/private bank account.
[3]. Invest/Manage the funds outside of China.
[4]. Value of funds: $47 Million US Dollars.

Everything will be done legally to ensure the rights to the funds are transferred to you.

If you agree to partner with Mr. Chen, he will compensate you with 20% of the total sum. Should you prefer I re-contact you with more express facts, you can send me your:

[1] Official Full Names:

I've been getting Chen Shui-bian themed scam emails for a while. To my eternal disappointment, when I reply with a single positive word ("OK" or "Sure" - I don't want to waste time) I don't hear back from them.
