No wonder some say one ounce of luck is better than a pound of wisdom -- I always believes that food blogging is a rewarding business -- just never in a multitude of 1.8 million pound sterlings and a runaway dad called K. Bao...
Racking my head with the full name of my daddy rolling stone. I must make up my mind whether it is Ketchup Bao or Kim Chi Bao before I show up in front of the bank manager with my briefcases. Need to look legit, right? Judging from the reason of death (industrial accident!), I tend to place my bet on Ketchup Bao:

Subject: Re: Your strict sincerity - K. Bao's Fund
Mr Geofrey TchidDirector Treasury DepartmentCmb Bank Dapaong-TogoDear Chaxiu Bao
I am the above named and addressed. My intention of writing you this brief notice is to seek your confidence and unbias efforts in a partnership that will be of immense mutual benefits for both of us.
I hereby bring to your knowledge about records of unclaimed fund with total sum of £1.8 million, British Pounds Sterlings that I discovered during one of my routine checks and records updates belonging to a rich business magnet (Mr K. Bao) who died as a result of industrial accident back in the year 2004. I also found out that there was no records of next of kinship mentioned in the ICP data folders of this bank account.You have the advantage here to be presented as the next of kin to this fund, since this deceased person was a foreigner, which makes it difficult for an indigenous person to be presented to the claim, hence the reason why I have contacted you. Our bank internal policy as it relates to unclaimed foreign dormant accounts demands that after a period of 415 days of non funtionalbility of such bank account, then it will be declared as unservisable and thereafter gets confiscated via the central bank to the government pulse.
I hereby wish to present you to this claim in order to avoid such a negative situation. Upon your positive response to this convenant, I will give you more guildlines to the claim, release and transfer of this fund to your choosen bank account. We will also discuss the sharing ratio, which will be of more benefit to you since my wish is to avoid this account from being confiscated. Kindly send your swift response through my alternative email address.
I am waiting for your immediate and positive response to this call.
Yours sincerely,Mr Geofrey TchidDirector,Treasury DepartmentCmb Bank Dapaong
YOU ARE BLESSED TODAYTHIS IS AUTHORISED IN THE BOK OF LIFE !
