Tags: , , , ,

This one should catch your eye, hey $24.5 million needs your urgent attention! It is simply a good old tried and true scam. Either, you need to send a few bucks to process a transaction or pay taxes, whatever the excuse or they will send you a check and allow you to keep a certain percentage and send the balance elsewhere. A few days later, guess what the check bounces and you have been scammed.

What is particularly upsetting about this one is that the bank referred to actually exists and the person being impersonated is actually an employee of the bank see their site

“Dear Friend,

My name is Mr. Peter TS Wong; I work with HANG SENG BANK, HONG KONG. I have a
Business Proposal of ($24,500,000.00) for you to handle with me from my bank.
Should you be interested please send me your full names,
Private Phone/fax number to email address
(pete_ts_wong22@yahoo.com.hk) and finally
after that I shall provide you with more details of this operation.

Kind Regards,

Mr. Peter TS Wong.
(Director of Hang Seng Bank LTD)

This is a fine example of spam. The message is sent out to “undisclosed-recipient” and the contact E-Mail goes to a free public address, in this case “Yahoo.com.hk”. You would think that the “Director” of a bank of this size would at least have a personal email address on the bank’s server.

UPDATE:

This post was placed over a year ago and readers have been sending in all kinds of examples of scam emails where the Hang Seng Bank is being used by the bottom feeders as bait for their scams. It should be noted that the Hang Seng Back does not and will not ever send out any legitimate correspondence to anyone of their clients or anyone else, for that matter, via emails of this nature.
In other words, any correspondece you may receive where the name is employed should be deleted.

    ————————————————
    DEAR FRIEND,

    I am Mr.paul leech Executive Director of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, taiwan.An Iraqi named Besem Faruak, a business man made a numbered fixed deposit of
    (126,336,8299.38 hk) for 18 calendar months, this is valued to Eigth milion United State Dollars only in my branch.

    Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war,four years ago (2003). Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that Besem Faruak, and his family had been killed during the war in Gunfire that hit their

    home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil well was.
    After further investigation it was also discovered that Besem Faruak, did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit.
    And he also confided in me the last time we was

    at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Eigth milion United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me is that according to the laws of my country

    at the expiration five years six months the funds will revert to the ownership of the hong kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

    My proposal, I am prepared to place you as the next of kin in a position to instruct HANG SENG BANK to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half. That is:
    I will simply nominate you as the
    next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. We share the procentange50/50.

    I would have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line in my involvement in claiming the deposit.I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within a few days.
    I will simply inform the bank of the final closing of the file relating to Besem Faruak, I will then officially communicate with my Bank and instruct them to release the deposit to you. With these: all is done.

    I am aware of the consequences of this
    proposal.should be interested in executing this with me; indicate your interest by sending me the following:

    1. YOUR NAME
    2. YOUR RESIDENT ADDRESS
    3. YOUR OCCUPATION
    4. YOUR PHONE NUMBER
    5. DATE OF BIRTH
    6. COUNTRY OF RESIDENT

    Your response with the requested information should be sent to reach me at my personal email address below:
    peterwong_4@yahoo.com.hk

    I shall then provide you with more details on this operation when I hear from you.

    Sincerely,
    Mr.peter wong

    Pasha,

    They keep getting better all the time, seems to me they could at least offer more than 50 percent? Then again half of “Egith million United States Dollars” is pretty good.

    Hang Seng Bank Ltd
    Sai Wan Ho Branch
    171 Shaukiwan Road
    HongKong.

    Good Day,

    I am Mr. Ming Yang, Director of Operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd,
    Sai Wan Ho Branch, Hong Kong. My purpose of contacting you is because
    you live in a western world.

    I have an obscured business suggestion for you.I am here-by seeking
    your service in helping me receive a large amount of money and in
    giving a clear research and feasibility studies on areas I could invest
    on.Your services will be paid for, and you will be a partner, if your
    recommendation is accepted.

    As a bank employee, I can not operate any personal investment till I am
    retired and with the Anti-corruption Bill passed in Hong Kong,it is
    risky for a fixed income earner to own any huge amount of money in Hong
    Kong or any foreign country. It is then advisable to invest in any
    foreign land secret land patiently wait retirement.

    For security purpose, due to telecoms interception in Hong Kong, I shall
    not accept or acknowledge any phone call. Only fax messages/emails
    would be treated in relation to this proposal but not without this
    code;[CODE NO: AM-001]. Should you be further interested, I would
    prefer you to reach me soon and finally after that I shall provide you
    with more details of this operation.

    Contact me through this email for further confidential correspondence:
    project5coded@hotmail.com

    Kind Regards
    Mr. Ming Yang

    A
    Dear Friend,

    Thank you for your response, but I would say that your interest to assist me was rather unspecific following the brief sentence contained in your reply.You seem to doubt the uthenticity of my proposal which I dont find strange because of the means by which I have contacted you, please accept my apologies for this,it was due to prompt access and confidentiality reposed on this medium.

    Actually I got your contact from Hong Kong commerce and Industry, during my discrete online search. This is were all individual and business contacts are kept. Please do not be offended with the manner I contacted you. It was necessitated by the urgency and nature of this transaction.I am quite skeptical in believing that you could be part of this transaction, however I would like to be sure of your willingness, trustworthiness and commitment to execute this transaction with me, i cannot afford to compromise these virtues.

    Considering the amount involved,it is necesary for me to be sure of the person to whom i will be entrusting with this transaction, my trust is not given out lightly, i need to be convinced that you are a matured person with some intergrity.What i expect from you is trust and commitment, i want this large sum of money transfered to a bank in the Netherlands with your assistance. I want to know if you are willing to follow up this transaction seriously with me before i can give you more details about this transaction..

    Let me start by introducing myself again. I am Mr. SONG LI LE the credit officer in Hang Seng Bank Ltd. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Colonel Sadiq Uday who was with the Iraqi forces and also big time businessman, made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Nineteen millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch.Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which began in 2003. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him.

    We later found out that the Colonel along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.
    You should not have anything to worry about, I will do everything legally required to ensure that the 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 remind you that, it needs your commitment and diligent follow up. If you work seriously, the entire transaction should be over in a couple of days.

    Firstly, I will want to know precisely the type of occupation that you do and how old you are, you should note that 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.
    I am now in contact with a foreign online bank, I now intend that you open an account in your name in this foreign bank.

    The money would be transferred to your account which you will open in the bank for both of us, this is the best way, I have found, it will protect us from my bank. 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.

    As result of this, you will have to open an account in the corresponding bank. I will obtain a certificate of deposit from this my bank, it will be issued in your name, this will make you the bonifide owner of the funds. 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 commence, I will need you to send me a copy of any form your identification (Driver’s license Work ID or International passport) and your current address. I want to be sure that I am transacting with the correct person.

    As soon as I get these from you, I will commence the paper work. 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 before I proceed to give you all the details to commence the project, I will also send you my Work Identification and upon receipt of your identification. I will send the name and contact details of the bank so that you can commence communication with them.

    Ensure that you keep this project confidential, do not discuss it with anybody, because of the confidential nature of this transaction and my work.
    Please reply soonest.

    Regards,
    Song Li.

    BEWARE ; Heres yet another reply from “Patrick Chia”

    Thank you for your reply to my proposal (Private & confidential). Please note; my letter to you did not say that monies have been left to you. What I said was that a late investor (William Cameron), who may or may not be related to your family left behind $12,500,000.00 (Twelve million, Five hundred thousand United State dollars) in an investment account with the bank I work for. With your collaboration, we can acquire the funds for ourselves (you included) instead of allowing it to be passed onto the Singapore government who is not any qualified than you and I in benefiting from such a once in a life time opportunity. Beside, the funds will be shared amongst top government officials. As you would agree with me, we do not know you well. We are making this proposition to you because of the relevance of your surname in actualizing this transaction. Can you in your reply tell us a bit about yourself; (what you do for a living, married or single, your age, your interest) anything to reassure us that you are a gentle person and that you could not disappear with the whole funds once the business is completed. As promised, please read this explanation about the business for better understanding. We are delighted to find you with a matching surname as the late investor. However, we will need your continuous reassurance that after we approve your application and Hang Seng Bank. Singapore (HSB),transfer the funds to your bank account in your country, you MUST RETURN by way of bank transfer OUR AGREED percentage and that you will not disappoint us in this regards. Because once we approve the payment of the funds to your bank account, we cannot disapprove it. Our faiths are virtually in your hands and we hope that you will not take advantage of this fact. If you and we are both happy to proceed after you receive this communication,the following is how this transaction can be best achieved. According to the banking and the Singapore laws, to make an inheritance claim of this magnitude, you must do so through a Singapore based lawyer/solicitor. If you already have a trusted lawyer here in Singapore whom you would like to use for this transaction, you should give us his information for us to first approve of him before you appoint him/her. On the other hand, if you do not have a trusted Singapore based lawyer, we can source for one and relay such lawyer’s details to you for you to appoint him / her to act on your behalf in applying and submitting all the necessary applications to the relevant departments including HSB and the courts here in Singapore for the release of the said funds by wire transfer into your nominated bank account. For clarity, here are your role and our role after we have agreed on the lawyer you are to use for the claim process. These instructions are the only way we can succeed with this transaction without any present or future consequences. Your Role: 1. We will give you the reference number relating to the inheritance claim/investment deposit account reference in HSB. 2. You make contact with the solicitor/lawyer and instruct him to act on your behalf in the pursuit of your inheritance claim by giving the solicitor / lawyer the inheritance reference number that we will give you. 3. You must never inform the solicitor / lawyer that you are working with my colleague and me. 4. Once the solicitor / lawyer put in the claim on your behalf, your role stops and our role begins. Our Role: 1. The application goes through the normal application process for verification and approval with the HSB and end up with me and my colleagues for final approval. 2. My colleagues and I have people at these departments to verify and approve the application. 3. After application is approved, payment is issued out to your nominated bank account and notification and all relevant papers and certifications stating that these funds have been released to your bank account will be forwarded to you via the solicitor who acted on your behalf. And that is the end of the claim process. This whole process would take between 7 to 14 working days from start to finish. Once the funds arrive in your nominated bank account, we (my colleagues and I) will give you our banking particulars for you to transfer our share of this business to, while you retain your share, less any expenses incurred by both parties. We then shake hands and part ways and everybody will be happy. the above procedures are acceptable to you, say so by return email. You can also call me to say so too and we will proceed immediately.

    Thank you,

    Patrick. P.S- Please kindly forward by return email your confidential telephone & fax numbers for reasons of this transaction.

    I think it would be a good idea to notify the authorities about your situation since your identity is now at risk. You should contact your financial institution and let them know as well. They may suggest that you change your account numbers.

    Received one myself today, can’t believe they think it would work but it seems it does.
    Bottom feeder is rather to good description of them:-

    For security reasons, please reply to my confidential email address;hongzhanzh08@yahoo.com.hk Hang Seng Bank Ltd,Yau Tsim Mong Branch,One Grand Tower G/F,639 Nathan RoadKowloon West, Hong Kong IslandWebsite; http://www.hangseng.com.hk Dear Friend, I am Mr. Hong Zhanzhi credit officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. I honestly apologize and hope I do not cause you much embarrassment by contacting you through this means for a transaction of this magnitude, but this is due to confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium, sorry my English is not very good. Furthermore, due to this issue on my hands now, it became necessary for me to seek your assistance, and it is imperative for me to know your opinion. Five years ago, a Saudi Arabian Oil Consultant/Contractor with the Chinese Petroleum and Chemical corporation Mr. Al-Rahman Al Saud made a numbered time(Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$13,000,000.00 (Thirteen Million United State Dollars only) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Hong Kong Petroleum and Chemical Corporation that Mr. Al-Rahman Al Saud died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr.-Rahman Al Saud did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$13,000,000.00 (Thirteen Million United State Dollars only) is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of Hong Kong, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Al-Rahman Al Saud so that the fruits of this old man’s labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 50% for me and 40% for you and 10% for Expenses Incurred in the course of the transaction. There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and with my position as the credit officer guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction. Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication. You should observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country. I am waiting for your urgent reply. Thanks and regards. Mr. Hong ZhanzhiN.B; for security reasons, please reply to my confidential email address;hongzhanzh08@yahoo.com.hk

    Ha, ha! I beat all of you! I was offered $19.5 million. I think I’ll buy a house and move to Hawaii with some of it.

    Just so everyone knows, one way to spot a scam is the greeting. If it was legitimate, they would greet you by name. Another way is the email carrier. No legitimate person would use a free website like Yahoo!.

    A third thing to look out for is their requirement. No legitimate company or representative would EVER ask you to submit personal info by email or phone. If they want you to verify your info, it’s a scam. Your credit card or bank already has your info, and if they need you to verify, they would ask you to come in to do it in person. Call your credit card company or bank directly rather than “clicking a link” or calling a number they supply you.

    If they have money for you, then say they need some FROM you, think scam. If there were any fees, they would take it out of your “winnings” and send the rest to you.

    If you get a job offer, and they say you will process checks and send it Western Union/MoneyGram, think scam. No legitimate company will use personal bank accounts to conduct business, nor will they use Western Union/MoneyGram. If they need money wired, the company will use their own bank to do the wiring, or have you go to your bank to wire it to their account–they provide the number. They’re worried about fees and waiting time? Tough! If they want to do business, they HAVE to pay fees, and all people have to do is say the payment is on its way, and they will wait for it to clear.

    If you think you’ve been compromised, call the bank, the Social Security office and the three major credit reporting agencies. Two are Experian and Equifax. I forgot the name of the third. Tell them your info may have been compromised, and they should put an alert on your identity, so if someone tries to open a credit card or something, the company will see the alert and will need to contact you directly befor proceeding further.

  33. Martin Winship says:

    I recently was contacted by this bank by the name of Patrick Chan and was offered $30,000,000 to split 60/40. These are actual employees of the bank. I do not think that their top management would approve of such actions and wondered if any one out there had an email address to report these people to the bank top executives.

  34. gariell says:

    Martin,
    These bottom feeders often impersonate employees to make their scams believable. Just look at the contact addresses and I am sure none are to the actual corporate address, more likely some Yahoo or other free email address.
    The Bank is well aware of the scams circulating and are constantly trying to stop the practice.

    Cheers

We later found out that the General along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home. After more inquiry it was also discovered that the late Gen. did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. What bothers me most is according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 6 years the funds will be revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody comes for the funds, Against this scenery, I have all the information needed to claim these funds and I want you to act as the beneficiary of the deposit, there is no risk involved in this matter, as we are going to adopt a legitimate method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. All I require is your honest co-operation and I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

First email arrived on 09/16/08, next on 09/19/08 and the third on 09/23/08. I went along with the first two, but never gave out any real information to see where it was going. The last email wanted more information on me plus detailed instructions on how to proceed. Please be aware of this scam.

  47. gatorglory says:

    I received this as a response a couple of days ago. I knew immediately that it was a scam. I just wanted to see how long it would take them to ask for some real information. It took only two emails.

    Dear Friend,

    I want to let you know of myself so that you will be rest assured of whom you are transacting with. I am married with two children Liu my daughter and Lee my son, I have sent you my family picture now for you to see.

    I have really invested much in this transaction so I will please tell you to accept the 30% of the total funds that I have intend to give to you. For your information I will be coming over to your country for my share of the funds, once the funds credits your account at the bank that we will be using for this transaction.

    Well if I may remind you again, you are required to send at least a copy of your Driver’s License “or” a copy of your International Passport. Besides, it is this copy of your Driver’s Licence or International Passport that will be be used by the Attorney have all the necesary documentations perfected.

    At this point I must inform you that being part of this transaction would only be at your free will I cannot impose this on you, it is your choice to accept or disagree with the principles and of this business or even with the transaction as a whole,but at least I deserve the previledge of knowing your decision.The most important issue is that I want to be sure I am transacting with the correct person, I believe these information would be enough to confirm you interest.

(with my share of the loot I plan to bail out the Kenya/Sudanese government from the Somali pirates – if they accept my share of $7.5m).
    All I have to do is to open an account with the ‘Welsh Trust Bank Ltd’ (Where in UK is that bank?) with only $1,000….
    Need more crap from these Hong Kong fooeys? (By the way, the guy’s time zone is seems to be ‘nowhere in Pacific’- 12 hours from Kenya!!)

    Dear Beloved,

    I want to let you know more about myself so that you will be rest assured of whom you are transacting with. I am 53 years of age, I am married with two children Liu my daughter and Lee my son, I am sending you my family picture now for you to see. My address is #1, Fortune Garden, 20 Wing Ting Road, Ngan Chi Wan, Kln, Hong Kong. I have lived here for the last 13years. It is not ideal to have your documents send via regular mail; you can scan, attached and send via email. You know it is very risky for me.

    Note that the lawyer will be on the way regarding perfecting the paper work once i hear from you. I have really invested much in this transaction. I do hope the percentage of the total funds that I have proposed to give to you is okay by you. To remind you, I will be coming over to your country for my share of the funds, once the funds credit your account at the bank that we will be using for this transaction.

    Please endeavour to keep this transaction confidential, Please do not discuss it with anybody, I have a 22year career with my bank (Hang Seng) and I do not intend to run all that. I really cannot wait till the funds leave my bank because I have not been able to sleep nor eat properly for the past days. Attach to this email is my work ID and my family pictures for your reference.

    I believe this information would be enough to assure you of who you are dealing with.

    I will give your details of the Bank you are to open the offshore account with.

    Dear Beloved,

    Thank you for the response, I am in receipt of your information and i receive the scan copy of your passport. I thank you for showing some great responsibility and trust. I believe we will be able to maintain the mutual trust we are building on our selves.

    I promised you that this transaction will be over in just Few days if we both work hard and are able to take care of our ends at the right time.
    However, you must be assured of your responsibilities because I do not want any disappointment at the middle of this project. Therefore

    READ THIS AND MAKE A FINAL DECISION

    For the purpose of this write up You shall be known as party 2 and i party 1
    Remuneration: That party 1 and 2 shall be remunerated as follows; party 2 shall be entitled to 40% of total sum for distribution ($22,500,000.00) for his role and Party 1 remunerations shall be 60% of the total sum ($22,500,000.00)
    :Confidentiality rule: That all parties will agree to treat this transaction as top secret and not to disclose the existence and content of it to any other party without the consent of the parties already involved.

    That party 2 is in a position to be trusted as a God fearing person with such a large amount of funds and will be accountable at due time .

    Do you think you will be able to set up an offshore account in UK? As a banker i know that offshore bank account require a few thousands of dollars to open.
    I do expect that my partner in this project will assist in opening the account so that eyes will not be on me.

    Besides, i am under expenses weight here in Hong Kong regarding the perfecting of the paper work and retaining the services of the attorney and the like.

    I am saying this because I do not want to drag you on when i know you have a financial responsibility, for which you may not be able to meet up except you convince me otherwise
    I will advice you to think about it very well before you agree to proceed because i do not want to be disappointed at the middle after spending so much and taking so much risk at my end here.

    However, i have to assure you that this transaction worth taking any sacrifice for because it is a life changing opportunity. As for me this opportunity cannot pass me by.

    My friend, you will not regret any decision you take, incase you have a means of accessing funds to open the account because that is only what you need to do from your end besides providing an account in your country where we will eventually transfer the funds.

    This account is the very important one in the first place because of how this transaction has been planned. This is the only sure way for a successful execution.

    Get back to me with your decision.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    the fuuny part is joseph poon is a chef and the return email is addressed to john.poon

    Dear Friend,

    My name is Joseph Poon I work with HANG SENG BANK, HONG KONG, Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed who was a business merchant and a contractor with the Iraqi Government but a citizen of SAUDI ARABIA,Made a numbered fixed deposit for 24 calendar months(2Years), with a value of Twenty Two million Four Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which began in 2003. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit His Resident. After further investigation it was also discovered that Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Twenty Two million Four Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still 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 3 years and six month 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.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed so that you will be able to receive his funds.

    WHAT IS TO BE DONE:

    I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed,all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job.
    After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also fill in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favour for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you.There is no risk involved at all in this matter, as we are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents.
    Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.Should you be interested please send me your

    1,Full names,
    2,Private phone number,
    3,Current residential address.

    And I will prefer you reach me on my private email address below;

    (john.poon27@yahoo.com)

    And finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this operation. I want to know if you are willing to follow up this business seriously before I can give you more details about this transaction,I shall be waiting for your response and assurance.Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

    Kind Regards,
    Joseph Poon

    I received a e-mail from a joseph poon regarding a 30m proposition, I immediately searched the Hang Seng Bank to see if there was a report of any fraud and to see if the name was listed. I did not see the name so that is why I am submitting this comment to you. I have been in banking all my life and been involved with the investigating of these type of cases.

    I got an email from a Mr. Patrick Chan, Credit Accounts Officer at the Hang Seng Bank, LTD. Recieved it on November 29, 2008. This guy goes on to say he has a client going through a hurrendous divorce in the United States of American, and he came up with the brilliant idea of transfering to his bank, some of his money in the amount of 9.5 million in English pounds. Then says the problem is, that the guy died in 2004 and now all this money is just sitting in his bank. So his plan is for me to claim that I’m next of kin to the dead guy, and that a lawyer has been contacted to prepare the necessary documents that will back me up as next of kin. All I have to do is give him my Name, Address and Phone number, for the attorney, as well as the bank and account that I nominated for the money to go into to. We would share a ratio of 60% for him and 40% for me, and not to worry about any legal ramifications. Then he ends it with an urgent response is hightly anticipated to let him know if I’m interested. Finally he ends it with “this should be kept very secret and confidential”.
    Of course I didn’t respond, but I thought it was a pretty incredable story, that took a lot of thinking to make it all up. But he realy blew it with that last comment!

    MR. PATRICK CHAN
    CREDIT ACCOUNTS OFFICER
    HANG SENG BANK LTD.
    83, Des Voeux Road,
    Central HK, Hong Kong.

    Good Day,

    Let me start by introducing myself, I am Mr. Patrick K.W Chan Executive Director and Credit Account Officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd Hong Kong. I am writing you this letter based on the latest development at my bank, which I will like to bring to your personal edification. I am a top official in charge of client accounts in (EQUITABLE PCI BANK) which is now HANG SENG BANK LTD. inside Hong Kong, the merger was late 2007.

    I discovered this fund in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr. Morris Thompson an American who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only daughter. You shall read more about the crash on visiting this site which I got during my investigation;

    http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list

    Since I got information about his death, I have been expecting his next of kin or relatives to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.

    Unfortunately, I learnt that his supposed next of kin being his only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for the claim.
    Immediately I realized these funds $10.8m(Ten million eight hundred thousand US Dollars), I placed it on Sundry Escrow Account here in our bank in Hong Kong. since nobody is coming for it and I don’t want this money to go back into the Government treasury account as unclaimed BILL.

    Because of my position as the Executive Director and Credit Account Officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd Hong Kong,
    the code of conduct bureau forbids me from operating a foreign account,this is why I am contacting you to stand as the next of kin of the deceased.

    Due to his untimely death in early 2000, the funds have been sitting in the account ever since and will continue to do so perpetually unless we do something about it. This is where you come in. I located you through an agency that helps seek people by their email.My client did not declare any other next of kin in his official papers including the
    paper work of his bank deposit apart from his late daughter. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I would like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to our client so that you will be able to receive his funds. I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we can come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to my client. All that is required from you at this stage is for you to
    provide me with your Full Names and Address and telephone number so that the attorney can commence his job.

    Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall then share in the ratio of 60% for me, 40% for you. I will assume all responsibilities for this endeavor so you don’t have to worry about any legal ramifications.Your urgent response is highly anticipated so please let me know if you are interested for more details on this transaction. This should be kept very secret and confidential.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Kind Regards,
    Mr. Patrick Chan

    Please find below is an email I got like the above from the same bank from Hong Kong from a Dr.Chenglei Chung…here is the email below:

    FROM:
    Dr. Chenglei Chung
    Hang Seng Bank Ltd
    17 Des Voeux Road
    Hq Branch.
    Hong Kong.

    This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it
    as unserious could come into your mind; but please consider it a divine
    wish and accept it with a deep sense of humility. I am Dr. Chenglei Chung
    CREDIT OFFICER of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have a obscured business
    suggestion for you.

    Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Major Fadi Basem who was with the
    Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18
    calendar months, which values $24,500,000.00 USD (Twenty Four million,
    Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) only, in my branch. Upon
    maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war early this
    year. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no
    response came from him. We later found out that the Major and his family
    have being killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home.

    After further investigations, it was also discovered that Major Fadi Basem
    did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper
    work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was
    at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So,
    Twenty Four million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars is still
    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 3years 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 Major Fadi Basem so that you will
    be able to receive his funds.

    WHAT IS TO BE DONE:
    I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall
    come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the
    necessary documents that will back you up as the Next Of Kin to Major Fadi
    Basem, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide
    me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his
    job. After you have being made the Next Of Kin, the attorney will also
    file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and
    letter of probate (Verified Copy Of WILL) in your favour for the transfer
    of the funds to an account that will be provided by you.

    There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going to adopt a
    legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary
    documents. Please endeavour to observe utmost discretion in all matters
    concerning this issue.

    Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account, we
    shall share in the ratio of 60% for me, 40% for you . Please, indicate
    your interest by sending the below requirements to me:

    NAME:
    CONTACT ADDRESS:
    DIRECT PHONE NUMBER:
    FAX NUMBER IF ANY:

    Send your response to my direct email address: chengleichung25hk@yahoo.com.hk

    Finally, you shall be provided with more details regarding this transaction.

    Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

    I am Peter Wong, Non Executive Director of Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Hong Kong.

    An Iraqi named Haider Hanoon,a business man made a numbered fixed deposit of Forty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war, Five years ago (2003). Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that Haider Hanoon and his family had been killed during the war in Gunfire that hit their home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil well was.

    After further investigation it was also discovered that Haider Hanoon did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Forty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration seven years six months the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

    Be informed that the fact that you are a foreigner give you the privilege to stand in as my deceased client beneficiary as my deceased had no relation all his family died with him during the war and i can not use my relation because its no accepted here in Hong Kong.

Such opportunities only come ones way once in a life time. I cannot let this chance pass me by, for once I find myself in total control of my destiny. These chances won’t pass me by.

    I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man I have wife and children and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities, I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence.There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life. Let’s share the blessing.

    What you need to understand about this transaction is that I will make sure that it passes through all international banking laws regards to this I will take care of all the espensive and the cost of retaining the service of my Attorney to give the transaction the proper documentation that is required to perfect the finishing.Your only obligation in this transaction is to accept to stand in as the only existing relative of my deceased client and you will have to set up offshore account that can accommodate these funds with a Finance bank which I will give you information later once we finalize this deal.

    107 Leadenhall Street,
    London EC3A 4AF
    United Kingdom

    Dear Friend,

    I am Barrister Mattew Melford.I work in the Legal department of HANG SENG BANK, London U.K. Recently I was invited to a meeting by the bank manager of the bank and he told me of this funds that are available for investment.

    He said recently a client came to deposit the sum of US$18MILLION in a fixed deposit account for his five(5) year old son. The client left a mandate that the fixed deposit should be liquidated when his son is 20years old. As a result of this, the funds will be available for investment on a lucrative business like real estate or your own kind of business for the next 15years.

    Hence my proposal to you is that we need a neutral person like you who is not a worker in the bank to assist us in receiving this funds and then invest it in your company. We have the ability to get all relevant documents to get the funds out of the bank in your name. Be informed that the transaction will be done in a legal manner, so therefore there will be no risk what so ever.

    Note that 25% of the funds will be yours if you can assist us receive the funds, while the rest will be for us for investment in your company.

    Please send your contact details so that I can tell you more details on how to forge ahead. You should send your telephone number, your full names and contact address.

    When I get your details, I will call you.
    I wait to hear from you.

    Herewith, the attach email message sent me by Mr. Ming Yang.
    Looking forward your reply and more power to you.

    RESPONSE TO YOUR EMAIL (CODE NO:AM-002)
    Dear Friend,

    I must thank you very much for sparing your good time to respond to the business proposal that will benefit both parties at the end. Be assured, this transaction is risk free and a very genuine business.

    Once again, I am Mr. Ming Yang, Director of Operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Sai Wan Ho Branch, Hong Kong and I am a 51 year old looking forward to retirement with an intention of investing in a profitable venture in your country like real estate and estate properties.

    SOURCE OF FUNDS…

    Before the U.S and Iraqi war, our client Mr. Sadeq Ja’afar Hussain who was an Iraqi business man, made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of $24,500,000 (Twenty Four million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) only in my branch. Upon maturity, several notices were sent to him, even during the war early this year. Again after the war, another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that our client and his family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home. Please visit the link below for further verification;

    http://www.iraqbodycount.org/names.php

    After further investigation, it was also discovered that Mr. Sadeq Ja’afar Hussain did not declare any next of kin in his official papers, including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office, which no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, $24,500,000 (Twenty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) is still lying in my bank, and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the to the laws of my country, at the expiration of 3 years 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. Sadeq Ja’afar Hussain so that you will be able to receive his funds.

    WHAT IS TO BE DONE?

    I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr. Sadeq Ja’afar Hussain, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names, contact Address and a valid copy of your identification documents so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an account in Madrid-Spain or elsewhere in Europe. There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going to adopt a legalized method, and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents.

    Meanwhile, for the assistance you shall render me I will offer you 50% of total amount. Again due to the cause of communication and other minor expenses during the period of getting this money across to you, I have also offered to 10% of the total sum to be used as expenses.

    Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

    Please always remember to send me email with the code: [CODE NO: AM-002]. This is strictly for security reasons.

    Kind Regards

    Mr. Ming Yang.

    Looks like they have finally changed the name of the bank and the sender, but it’s still the same old scam:

    Good Day,

    I am Mr. Vincent Cheng Hoi Chuen, GBS, JP Chairman of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited.

    Our client BRIGADIER AMER ALI NAYEF, a businessman and also who was with the Iraqi forces, made a fixed deposit, of Twenty Two million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch, a number of notices was sent to him, before the war which began in 2003 and also after the war but, no response came from him. We later found out that Brigadier Amer Ali Nayef was shot dead along with his son, Khalid Amer also in the force as they left the family home for work in the south of the city.

    After more inquiry it was also discovered that the late Brigadier, did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. What bothers me most is according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 7 years the funds will be reverted to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody comes for the funds, Against this scenery, I have all the information needed to claim these funds and I want you to act as the beneficiary of the deposit, there is no risk involved in this matter, as we are going to adopt a legitimate method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents.

    All I require is your honest co-operation and I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this email if you do not appreciate this proposition I have offered you.

    All confirmable documents to back up the claims will be made available to you prior to your acceptance and as soon as I receive your return mail Via my email address: chengcheun14@googlemail.com and I will let you know what is required of you.

    The amount of the unclaimed funds in that account is getting bigger and bigger. Just received this ……..

    Dear Friend,

    I am Mr. Peter Lee ting Chang Executive Director of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Hong Kong.
    An Iraqi named Haider Hanoon,a business man made a numbered fixed deposit of (346,736,899.68 TWD) for 18 calendar months, this is valued to Fourty- Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war, Six years ago (2003). Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that Haider Hanoon and his family had been killed during the war in Gunfire that hit their home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil well was.

    After further investigation it was also discovered that Haider Hanoon did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time we were at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Fourty- Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration five years six months the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

    My proposal, I am prepared to place you as the next of kin in a position to instruct HANG SENG BANK to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half. That is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. We share the percentage 70/30. I would have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line in my involvement in claiming the deposit. I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within a few days. I will simply inform the bank of the final closing of the file relating to Haider Hanoon I will then officially communicate with my Bank and instruct them to release the deposit to you. With these: all is done. I am aware of the consequences of this proposal.

    I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. You may not know this but people like myself who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private banking sector. I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come ones way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by, for once I find myself in total control of my destiny. These chances wont pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opp

    If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. I wish to inform you that should you contact me via official channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. I repeat, I do not want you contacting me through my official phone lines nor do I want you contacting me through my official email account. Contact me only through the numbers I will provide for you and also through the email account that i will provide therein in this email. Further more be informed that the fact that you are a foreigner give you the privilege to stand in as my deceased client beneficiary as my deceased client had no relation all his family died with him during the war and I can not use my relation because its not accepted here in Hong Kong. Also I am very confident that we will be able to establish the trust that is needed to complete this deal and all that I need from the time been is your willingness and commitment so that we can end this in
    the next one weeks.

    What you need to understand about this transaction is that I will make sure that it passes through all international banking laws regards to this I will take care of all the expenses and the cost of retaining the service of my Attorney to give the transaction the proper documentation that is required to perfect the finishing. Your only obligation in this transaction will be to set up two offshore accounts that can accommodate these funds and I will give you more lightly later once you agree to partner with me. Like I said before there is no risk involve as it will pass through international banking laws and all documents related to this transaction will be sent to you by post for your perusal and trust.

    I do not want any direct link between you and me. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management Policy. Please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again, note I am a family man, I have wife and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting, soon. Should you be interested I will prefer you to send me your FULL NAMES, ADDRESS, OCCUPATION AND PHONE NUMBER. On the email address below.

My name is Mr Wang Chung I work with the Hang Seng Bank.There is the sum of US$19,500,000.00 lodged in my bank”Hang Seng Bank, Hong Kong by late Dr. Francis Estidos since the last 13years”. We have written several letters to the embassy with intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries to receive his fund and all such efforts have been to no avail. I had to inform my bank about my fruitless effort in locating his relative or His next of kin before the fund will be confisicated.

    I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so as to have the sum transfered out of my bank into your account. Note that all is well planned as we shall do this inline with all legal and banking requirements. All I need from you is your willingness, trust and commitment.

    After you have been made the next of kin beneficiary of these funds, the attorney will also fill in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favour for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you. There is no risk involved at all in this matter, as we are going to adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall then share in the ratio of 60% for me, 40% for you.

    Dear friend ,

    Thank you very much for your reply. Though, I have being in the financial sector for many years I try as much as possible to diversify my interests by exploring new frontiers.

    Well, you should have nothing to worry about as I will do everything lawfully required to ensure that the project goes smoothly. It shall pass through all Laws of International Banking. An attorney in the name of Mr. Woo Cheng, a Korean Citizen, will prepare the necessary Affidavits which shall put you in place as the next of kin to my late client. He will obtain all the necessary documents that will cover all aspects involved in this transaction from the appropriate authorities and institutions. This attorney shall handle all matters of probate on your behalf, have all the documents perfected and forwarded to my bank, and then apply for the immediate release and transfer of the funds to the account you shall open on your behalf, hence your presence may not be required here in Hong Kong unless you so desire. I have been a banker for many years and I know perfectly well how the system works.

    Having resolved to entrust this transaction into your hands, I want to remind you that, it needs your commitment and diligent follow up. If you work seriously, the entire transaction should be over in a couple of days.

    READ THE FOLLOWING AND GET BACK TO ME WITH THE REQUIRED DETAILS:
    Firstly, how old are you? You should note that this project is highly capital intensive, this is why I have to be very careful, and I need your total devotion and trust to see this through. I know we have not met before though I will be coming to your country after the successful transfer of this funds out of my bank for the final sharing, but still I am very confident that we will be able to establish the necessary trust that we need to execute this project. I am now in contact with a foreign Offshore online bank. I will intend that you open an account in your name in this foreign bank hence we will not be making use of your personal Bank account. The money will be transferred to your account which you will open in your name for the both of us – this is the best way I have found because it will protect us from my bank. 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. As a result of this, you will have to open an account in our corresponding bank after I get all the details of the bank.

    I will obtain a certificate of deposit from my bank, and it will be issued in your name; and this will make you the real beneficiary of the funds. After this, the money will be banked online for the both of us. We can then instruct the bank to transfer our various shares into our respective home bank accounts, after which, I will move to your country to meet with you. I will also perfect the documentations with the assistance of my attorney to give the transaction the legal right.

    Before I commence, I will need you to send me a copy of any form your identification (Driver’s license, Work ID or International passport). I want to be sure that I am transacting with the right person. As soon as I get these from you, I will commence the paper work with the assistance of my attorney. I hope you will understand why I need all these, the money in question is large and I want to ensure that I know you well before I proceed to give you all the details to commence the project. I will also send you my Identities and family picture upon receipt of your identification. I will send the name and contact details of the bank to you as soon as I confirm that we could make use of it because I have to be sure that it is an affiliate of my bank that can protect the funds before you can commence communication with them.I have you in my email before now that you are getting 30% of the whole money,this transaction will take about a week as soon as my attorney secures all documents in your name please make sure you get to me with your Full Names,Address and Telephone Number.

    Once again, please ensure that you keep this project CONFIDENTIAL, do not discuss it with anybody, because of the confidential nature of this transaction and my work. Please reply soonest with the required Identification. You can have it sent to me as email attachment for confirmation.

    Kind Regards,

    We have to do something about this and first of all the bank has to do the same to get this stupid people

    Folks,

    Apparently the US$ has been taking quite a beating since 2007 when the first of the scams surfaced. In the mail I got today, what used to be 8 Million has now risen to 45.50 million. God Bless GOLD!!!🙂

    Dear Friend

    I am Mr Vincent Hong Independent Non-executive Director Chairman of Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Hong Kong.

    An Iraqi named Haider Hanoon,a business man made a numbered fixed deposit of Forty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war, Five years ago (2005). Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that Haider Hanoon and his family had been killed during the war in Gunfire that hit their home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil-well was.

    After further investigation it was also discovered that Haider Hanoon did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Forty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration seven years six months the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

    I want to assure you that this project is real, and one hundred percent risk free and does not relate to any breach of law or proceeds from drugs. It is a matter of necessity to contact you for assistance without any further investigations about your person, it is therefore necessary that you tell me a little about yourself, I hope no form of betrayal will be experienced in the course of our collaboration, I must give you my trust because this transaction is no joke and such opportunity comes once in a life time.

    My proposal to you is that I prepared to front you as the sole beneficiary of my deceased client so that i can instruct HANG SENG BANK to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation or business partner. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half 50/50 percentage. If interested do send me your full names, current home address, phone number, your occupation to this email account: vincenthong72@yahoo.com.hk

    Your earliest reply will be appreciated.

    Yours Truly,

    Business Proposition‏

    To:–

    Dear Friend,

    Let me start by introducing myself again, I am Mr. Vincent Cheng Hoi Chuen, GBS, JP Chairman of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited.

    I appreciate your response very much. I have outlined the detailed story of how this transaction came about and also I got your email address discretely when I was in search of someone to assist me conclude this transaction. Please read carefully. Before the U.S and Iraqi war, our client General Zaiki Taha Abdel who was with the Iraqi Government but a citizen of SAUDI ARABIA, made a numbered fixed deposit for 24 calendar months (2Years), with a value of Thirty million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which began in 2003. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that General Zaiki Taha Abdel along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit His Resident.

    The last time he was at my office he confided in me that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Thirty million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only is still 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 3 years and six month 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 General Zaiki Taha Abdel so that you will be able to receive his funds.

    WHAT IS TO BE DONE:

    I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to General Zaiki Taha Abdel, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also fill in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favour for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you. There is no risk involved at all in this matter, as we are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.

    What I require from you is your honest co-operation and I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of the law. Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this email if you do not appreciate this proposition I have offered you. All confirmable documents to back up this fund shall be made available to you, as soon as I receive your reply, I shall let you know what is required of you.

    Regards from,

    Vincent Hoi Chuen Cheng, GBS, OBE,
    Chairman,

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.

    DETAILS OF THIS TRANSACTION:
    I am very confident that we will be able to establish the trust that is needed to complete this deal and all that I need for the time been is your willingness and commitment and also i need to trust you too, so that we can end this in the nest one week. I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you.

    You may not know this but people like myself who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private banking sector. I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come ones way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by, for once I find myself in total control of my destiny.

    These chances wont pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life.

    Lets share the blessing. An Iraqi named Haider Hanoon, a business man made a numbered fixed deposit of ( 346,736,899.68 TWD ) for 18 calendar months, this is valued to Fourty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch.Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war, Nine years ago (2001). Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. I later found out that Haider Hanoon and his family had been killed during the war in Gunfire that hit their home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil well was.

    After further investigation it was also discovered that Haider Hanoon did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Fourty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration Ten years and six months the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

    My proposal, I am prepared to place you as the next of kin in a position to instruct HANG SENG BANK to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relatives. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you if you agree to work it out with me. That is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you.

    We share the percentange 70% for me and / 30% for you. I would have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line in my involvement in claiming the deposit. I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within a few days. I will simply inform the bank of the final closing of the file relating to Haider Hanoon I will then officially communicate with my Bank and instruct them to release the deposit to you. With these: all is done. You should be aware that there is no consequences of this proposal because, you will not come to my bank but there is a lawyer who will represent you here.

    Third email

    Dear Danko,

    I received your mail.I will like to make some things clear to you.

    There is no possibility of your been my late client’s next of kin without a copy of your valid photo identity after you might have submitted your current personal contact information.You know that you will not be present here to that.The attorney needs that to proceed with the perfecting of the necessary documents in your favor.You are to know that your information and identity will only be used for this purpose and not in any harmful way against you.

    You are to know that i will be responsible for the paying the lawyer for the legal work involved in making you the next of kin to our late client.You will be responsible for the opening of an offshore account with our european correspondent bank which i will send to you after i have received the necessary information that is needed to file for the legal approval in the court in your favor.Also,i will like to get your acceptance before i will start to send your information over to the lawyer to start the legal work.I will not like to spend my money for nothing.Moreover i will not like to jeopardize this deal by starting it with someone that will not be ready to accept and share responsibilities with me.

    You are to know that the nature of the deal makes it necessary for you to open an offshore account with our correspondent bank in europe.This is necessary because we have the same telex type with this bank.Any transfer with this bank makes it an in-house transfer,which will make the fund to pass the watchful eyes of the MONETARY WATCHDOGS here.The present global financial crisis made every nation to be watchful of funds leaving the country.

    There will be no room for credit,debit or any other card.You will transfer the fund in bits from your newly opened offshore account to your account in your country on our behalf.

    There will be no need for interpol or any other organisation because it is never fund connected to fraud or terror.You will be transferring from an offshore account in your name.That is why i choose this european correspondent bank,inorder to avoid all these hurdles and checks.I have taken care to cut this cost and risk.

    I await your response.

    You are to know that i will be responsible for the paying the lawyer for the legal work involved in making you the next of kin to our late client.You will be responsible for the opening of an offshore account with our european correspondent bank which i will send to you after i have received the necessary information that is needed to file for the legal approval in the court in your favor.Also,i will like to get your acceptance before i will start to send your information over to the lawyer to start the legal work.I will not like to spend my money for nothing.Moreover i will not like to jeopardize this deal by starting it with someone that will not be ready to accept and share responsibilities with me.

    You are to know that the nature of the deal makes it necessary for you to open an offshore account with our correspondent bank in europe.This is necessary because we have the same telex type with this bank.Any transfer with this bank makes it an in-house transfer,which will make the fund to pass the watchful eyes of the MONETARY WATCHDOGS here.The present global financial crisis made every nation to be watchful of funds leaving the country.

    There will be no room for credit,debit or any other card.You will transfer the fund in bits from your newly opened offshore account to your account in your country on our behalf.

    There will be no need for interpol or any other organisation because it is never fund connected to fraud or terror.You will be transferring from an offshore account in your name.That is why i choose this european correspondent bank,inorder to avoid all these hurdles and checks.I have taken care to cut this cost and risk.

    I await your response.
    Regards,
    Li Park

    I to have received multiple scams of emails in different forms. My advice, if your are to play along with these
    fools give only false data of yourself. But if you happen to give out your financial banking information, it will
    not be that easy for them to get in to your account. For one they will need to know your password and if they ask for it, they will need to know the right answer to the bank’s security question to retrieved your password.
    The banking industry are well aware what the con artist are doing, but it wouldn’t hurt to let the bank know what
    is going on with your situation and inform the three major credit rating institution and request a red flag on your record account just in case somebody is trying to get a loan in your name. With the red flag on your record account, the three major credit rating institution will inform you of any suspicious activity in your account.
    My best advice to suspicious email is that, read it delete it with suspicious mind.

  138. I always respond to this kind of e_mail:
    You should understand that I adhere to paying any advance payment. to proceed this matter take from the account all cost that needs to pay. .

    Compliment of the day,

    Although you might be apprehensive about this message because we haven’t
    met. I am Mr. Song Li le and I work with the HANG SENG BANK in Hong Kong
    .I have vital information which I believe you & I can benefit from,
    there’s a sum of $19.5 US Dollars in our UK Branch where I was transferred
    down here. And, the Account hasn’t been operated for 6years plus now, and
    it has run dormant ever since, which means the original Owner to this
    Account is dead and no beneficiary stated when opening the Account,
    meaning no one would ever come forward to claim it. And, if not claimed
    before its 7th year, then the Fund will automatically be forwarded to the
    CENTRAL BANK of the NATION (C.B.N), and its goes into the Government
    wallet forever.

    So, I need a foreign partner who we can work on a platform of trust, and
    there’s no risk involved, as we are going to adopt a legalized method and
    the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. And, once the Fund
    gets to your Account, then the sharing ratio will be 60% for me,30% for
    you and 10% goes to any Charitable Organization around where you Live.
    Should you be interested reply me with your details: Full names, direct

    MR. MING YANG
    HANG SENG BANK LTD.
    83, Des Voeux Road.,
    Central HK,
    Hong Kong.

    Dear Partner,

    Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Ming Yang director of
    operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have an obscured business
    suggestion for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Gen. Aadel Akgaal
    Bastaan who was with the Iraqi forces and also businessman made a
    numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty Four
    million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch.
    Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which
    began in 2003. Again after the war another notification was sent and
    still no response came from him. We later find out that the General along
    with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a
    bomb blast that hit their home.

    After further investigation it was also discovered that Gen. Aadel
    Akgaal Bastaan did not declare any next of kin in his official papers
    including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me
    the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his
    deposit in my bank. So, Twenty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United
    State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one willknow of it.
    What bothers me most is thataccording to the laws of my country at the
    expiration of 10years and 6 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 Gen. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan so that you will be able to
    receive hisfunds.

    WHAT IS TO BE DONE:

    I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we
    shall come out successful. I have an attorney that will prepare the
    necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Gen. Aadel
    Akgaal Bastaan, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to
    provide me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can
    commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney
    will also fill in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary
    approval and letter of probate in your favour for the move of the funds
    to an account that will be provided by you.

    There is no risk involved at all in this matter, as we are going adopt
    a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary
    documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters
    concerning this issue.

    Should you be interested please send me your full names, private
    phone/fax and current residential address and finally after that I shall
    provide you with more details of this operation.
    Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

    Mr.Ming Yang

    Mr Ming Yang
    4:41 PM (7 hours ago)

    to me
    Hello Tapan Das,

    Thank you very much for your email response and your enthusiasm to assist me in this project. I have exhaustively considered your response today and I am satisfied that you have an understanding of the need for absolute secrecy in this pending project, hence my firm belief that I can count on your total support and confidentiality. I would proceed without any reservation to bring you into the complete picture of this transaction. Before doing this, I would again like to reiterate the importance of confidentiality, as I am career banker who is still in active service and would not like my names to be brought to odium or my long tenure in office jeopardized.I am not here to do any wrong with you my friend. This transaction i am presenting to you is for real and for our both benefit at the end of the day. Please find attached my passport ID for your reference.

    In searching for a God fearing and reliable partner for the purpose of this transaction, I have contacted you personally not as a matter of choice but of necessity knowing fully well, the monetary policies as regards funds transfer especially after the event of September 11th in America.

    I will be fully conscious in the pursuit of this project to make sure that we do not go against any local or international laws of funds transfer. You must understand that I am a family man and presently still serving here in the Hang Seng Bank. What I intend doing is to have your details that is your full name as documented, your telephone and fax numbers to contact you on as regards the transfer, your physical contact address, your age and also any possible identification.

    With these, I should be able to place together all documentation in your name to prove to the authority that you are truly the next of kin/beneficiary to the Funds and I will also have the probate letter signed at the Court of Hong Kong. As soon as all these are done and ratification exercise takes place which we must surely scale through as I will make a lot of under the table arrangement here, I will place an application of claim in your name for the release of the funds. As soon as we have concluded with this arrangement using an international clearing agent, you will then have to open up a separate bank account in your name and you alone have to be the signatory. This bank wills serve as an intermediary between your bank and the Hang Seng Bank. The aim of the intermediary bank is to receive the funds from the Hang Seng Bank and from there you can have the entire funds transferred bit by bit into our various bank account.

    With this arrangement, even if there has to be a loop hole in what we have done so far the funds cannot be traced. These special banks which I will introduce to you are specialized in this aspect. They assist business men alike who do not want the heavy load of tax to eat into their fund, they also assist government official in taking funds out of country without due attention from any authority. You will get to know more about this once we have both accepted to be partners in this venture. This will be your responsibility and I will have to perfect the rest of the arrangement here. The account you have, are account from regular banks they cannot serve the purpose here. You will begin to understand and appreciate this idea once we have commenced process on this transaction. It is all going to be a bank to bank affair you do not need to worry in as much as you follow my words as religiously as possible.

    I will also like to know more about your biography to further increase my level of trust and confidence in you as I am afraid that anyone can make away with my entire funds once it gets to his/her possession. I want you to please make me believe in you that you will not let me down. I am a gentleman of honor who has this opportunity and will not let it go having worked in this sector for several years. This is my only opportunity and I will not toy with it. I will also assure you that I know what I am doing and to the best of my knowledge, the entire project is legitimate and very risk free in as much as we observe high level of confidentiality and treat this matter accordingly with the two of us sharing ideas and not missing words.

    If you have further knowledge on how we can go about this matter let us then open the room for discussion and let us deal with this matter totally. Upon your response and also stating your ability to handle the project I will inform you on what you need do to have an account established in an offshore tax haven like the West Indies.I came accross your email through the Google search engine. This transaction can be sorted out as quickly as possible. It depends on your commitment to instructions i will be giving to you.

    I have already taken care of other cost and fess that is involved in this transaction. Your own duty is to help open and activate the off-shore account that we will be using to transfer this funds from my bank to your bank because i cannot be involved in that process to avoid any suspicion from my bank. You as the next of kin, is to be in position to do that. I will await further response from you.

    Best regards,
    Mr.Ming Yang

    Dear Friend,

    First of all I want to thank you for considering my proposal. One aspect I will like to talk about is PARTNERSHIP. I strongly believe in the power and spirit of Partnership in business. Partnership, it is all about mutual understanding, mutual efforts /contribution and mutual benefits for all parties involved in the partnership. On this note, I would want us to work as a team in pursuit of this interest with utmost professionalism, transparency, commitment and confidentiality.

    The first thing I will do is to get you acquainted with the complete details (a general overview) of this transaction so as to give you a foundation on which to make a concrete decision. I actually got your email contact from a friend of mine who works at the Chambers of Commerce here in the Hong Kong, I went to him with the zeal of locating a possible business partner overseas who will assist me in this project but note that I did not specify the nature of this business to him due to the nature of the business.

    I contacted you concerning a deceased customer Mohammad Numan-Kharmandar (An Iraqi Crude oil merchant), and an investment he placed under our banks management. Once again I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail. I am contacting on you independently and no one is informed of this communication I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you.

    In June 2001, Mohammad Numan-Kharmandar came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of 18.3 million United States dollars, which he wished to have us turn over (invest) on his behalf. I was the officer assigned to his case because of his high net worth profile; I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto Chief Operations Officer of the private banking sector, especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We met on numerous occasions prior to any investments being placed. I encouraged him to consider various growth funds with prime ratings. The favoured route in my advice to customers is to start by assessing data on 600 traditional stocks and bond managers and 300 managers of alternative investments. Based on my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point at 22.5 million United States dollars, this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments.

    Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war (U.S and Iraqi war), Ten years ago (2003). Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. I immediately passed the task of locating him to the internal investigations department of Hang Seng Bank Ltd. Information started to trickle in that Mohammad Numan-Kharmandar and his family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit his home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil well was. The bank immediately launched an investigation into possible surviving next of kin to alert about the situation and also to come forward to claim his estate. If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes.

    In his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking, opening an account with us means no one will know of its existence. Accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous. This bank even gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said, rarely do they nominate next of kin. Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; our now deceased client died in-testate. In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away, we instituted our own investigations in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate. This investigation has for the past months been unfruitful. We have scanned every continent and used our private investigation affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem. It is quite clear now that our dear client died with no known or identifiable family member.

    This leaves me as the only person with the full picture of what the prevailing situation is in relation to the portfolio and the late beneficiary of the deposit. According to practice, the Private banking sector will by the end of this year broadcast a request for statement of claim to Hang Seng Bank Ltd, failing to receive viable claims they will most probably revert the deposit to Management of Hang Seng Bank Ltd. This will result in the money entering the Hang Seng accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of Ten {10} years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. This will not happen if I have my way.

    What I wish to relate to you will smack off unethical practice but I want you to understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who sit upon certain chairs and oversee certain portfolios. You should have begun by now to put together the general direction of what I propose. There is US $22,500,000.00 deposit just lying unclaimed. This bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track the deceased’s family; they have investigated for several months and have found no identifiable family member. The investigation has come to an end.

    My proposal; I am prepared to furnish the necessary details to you as the closest surviving relation. I am also proposing that after successful execution of the business deal and the money in your account, the funds be disbursed in the ratio 40/60; 40% of the funds will go to you for offering yourself as the next of kin and providing a foreign account especially an offshore account for safe transfer of the funds and 60% will be for me. Please let me know in your next correspondence if the above sharing ratio is okay by you because we can fine-tune this based on our interactions incase you have any problem with it. Following the master plan for this deal I am looking at a bank that have transaction understanding with my bank as first point of transfer to put off eyebrows that may be raised or to avoid unnecessary questioning.

    I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. Once more, I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail and forget I ever contacted you, I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come one’s way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by. For once I find myself in total control of my destiny. This chance won’t pass me by and please do not let me miss my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. If you give me positive signals, I will give you the relevant modus operandi to initiate this process towards a conclusion.

    I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. I await your response.

    Sincerely,
    Fanjiang MENG

    Hello *******,

    Thank you so much for replying to my email address, I know this will come as a surprise to you but let me formally introduce myself to you. My name is Ms Irene Lee Yun Lien the Independent Non-executive Director at the Hang Seng Bank Ltd.

    I am contacting you concerning an abandoned sum of $22,500,000.00 USD. In June 2004, A customer called Fernando Pinto a foreign contractor with Royal Dutch Shell Plc came to our bank for business discussions and investment, As the account officer in charge of his transactions then, I encouraged him to consider various growth of funds with prime ratings. Then he invested Nineteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only. Based on my advice, we were able to spin the initial deposit with profit and interest to 22.5 million U.S Dollars.

    After few months; My bank (Hang Seng) sent several notice to him without response. Unfortunately, my client died in a car crash along with his nuclear family at France while on sabbatical in the summer of 2008, may their soul rest in peace however. He died without leaving a WILL and several efforts were made to find his extended family through your embassy without success.

    Because of the sensitive nature of private banking, most customers don’t nominate next of kin in their investment, also usually in most cases leave their WILLS in our care, in this case; our now deceased client died in-testate.

    It is quite clear now that our dear client died with no known or identifiable family member. According to practice, the Private banking sector will by the end of this year broadcast a request for statement of claim to Hang Seng Bank Ltd, failing to receive viable claims they will probably revert the deposit to the Management of Hang Seng Bank Ltd. This will result the money entering the Hang Seng accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division.

    What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of Ten {10} years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

    Now, I am prepared to give the necessary details to you as the closest surviving relation of our deceased customer (Fernando Pinto). I am also proposing that after a successful execution of the business deal, the funds will be shared in the ratio 40/60. You will get 40% and I will be entitled to 60% as the initiator of the deal. You know that I must have done my home work already before contacting you. Although the project is capital intensive, I know I will be able to pull it through following proper banking and legal lines with your assistance at your end. I will tidy up the legal aspect with the assistance of a lawyer who will prepare all the documents that will be needed to transfer the money from Hong Kong to your country. Once more, I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail and forget I ever contacted you, I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive; do not destroy my career. Opportunities like this only comes once in a lifetime.

    I would want you to take your time and think about this and let me know your decision. If you give me a positive response,I will initiate this process towards a conclusion: I will give you the relevant INFORMATION for the successful transfer of these funds and we both enjoy it in peace.

    I wish to inform you that should you not contact me via official Lines else I will deny knowing you and about this project. You can also check on my biography from the http://www.heyI amascammer.com click on “About us” and check Directors and Organisation. you can also call our official line +852-ass-hole but do not talk about this transaction or I may deny knowing you, when you call! Ask of Ms Irene Lee Yun Lien (Hang Seng Bank Ltd) and if I am on seat, then your call shall be transfer to me, what I will want you to do is to abolish the call before I talk because my official line are not secured means to reach me bearing in mind, the nature of this transaction, because they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management.

    I await your response.

    Best Regards!
