    million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch, a number

    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

    I recieved a second email from this guy today on Nov 3 08. He tries to sound sincere and we all know he is a joke. Maybe we should try and scam him for a change and lead him into interpools hands. I know they are aware of this guy question is why do they not catch him? Do they not care of good and decent people against the likes of him? By the way Hong Kong and Shanghai are two different cities in a communist country and I am sure the government there would be aware of this guy?? After all Chinas government is soo strict one would think they would execute him in public for such criminal acts if they caught him.

  30. Sammy says:

    He even went as far as to leave phone numbers, can these possibly be traced?

  31. gariell says:

    The best solution here is to ignore all correspondence from the bottom feeder. Don’t give him the time of day. He is just a low life criminal.

  32. sukhvinder singh says:

    The same thing has happened to me, he’s not a chairman but the real one doesn’t know this is happening i even have his phone no. 0085281912511 which never goes through it always says network is currently unavailable, they should arrest this man and put him jail.

  33. sukhvinder singh says:

    Isn’t it good idea to tell hsbc bank about this,he has been saying that he is chairman of hsbc i will go to the bank tell them everything what has happened, he has taken about £6,000 and told me to open accounts with post bank which i payed more than £1,000 to open the account that didn’t work out he told me to open a account with natwest which i justed recently paid £2,500 for pro term account but i got a email from natwest saying the funds were to high and then sent the funds back, then i was told to domiciliary account which the funds will be fully transferred but i didn’t open this account, i investigated that he’s using vincent cheng name and job title so now i’m aware this guy is a scammer.

  34. sukhvinder singh says:

    I just got phone call from the chairman and he was swearing at me saying i’m a stupid boy, i said to hin you are not vicent cheng and not chairman he replied yes i am vincent cheng and i’m chairman of hsbc, he still doesn’t tell the truth, can he really be the chairman of hsbc, i even have his account number which you can find if he really is vincent cheng, can anyone do this for me.

  35. gariell says:

    Sukhvinder

    This impostor is trying to scam you. The bottom feeders usually pretend to be legitimate businessmen. There is no way that this is the real Mr. Cheng. Do you honestly think that the chairman of a huge organization like the Hang Seng Bank has time to harass people on the phone or by email? Scammers often try to pressure people into responding by swearing and threatening victims.
    You must not respond to this scammer. Don’t even read his email and if he calls just hang-up before he gets two words out of his scamming mouth.
    Take the time to read all the comments above if you are still not convinced that this is a scam.

    Gariell

  36. sukhvinder singh says:

    I’ve given his account no. to one of my friends he has solicitor he’s going to find out if he is he real chairman.
    I know he’s been writing the same stories to everyone but that doesn’t mean he’s a scammer, because i opened a natwest online bank account, he tried to transfer 21.5 million usd cheque into my account and he transferred it but the bank refused it because in a pro term account only 8 million usd cheque can go in in order to put the 21.5 million usd cheque to go in need to open a domicillary account which costs £11,500, i need to pay £8,000 i already paid for pro term account so they deducted the money from pro term account but i haven’t paid £8,000 yet,Natwest sent me an email and phoned me transfer was unsuccessful because the amount was higher than 8 million usd, i found out that natwest doesn’t know that man and has no connection with him, yes the chairman asked money from me but i didn’t pay him i payed the attourney’s in scotland which is based in edinburgh, the attourney’s are real and natwest online bank is real, the only question remains is he real the chairman i will find out on tueaday 20th January 2009, i will give you the update.

  37. gariell says:

    Sukhvinder,
    I guess you just don’t want to believe that you are being scammed. If he actually deposits 21 million in your account, you will be the first in history and we will but you in the Guinness World Book of records. For the love of God stop supporting these bottom feeders.

    Gariell

  38. sukhvinder singh says:

    I know for 100% he will transfer the 21.5 million usd, he transferred 21.5 million usd dollars in my pro term, but only 8 million can go in this account then natwest accounts department sent the money back to vincent cheng account, I was told by natwest account department that to transfer 21.5 million usd you need to open domicillary account which will cost another £8,000.
    Vincent has never charged me a penny, how can he be a scammer, all the money i payed went to the attourney’s and to the bank.

    This man must be the real chairman, if he wasn’t why would he transfer the money into my pro term account, now vincent want me to open the domicillary account and he has raised £2,000 already but he’s trying to get the rest £6,000 so when he’s raised the full £8,000 he will send this money straight to natwest account which is my account.

    Good Day

    I am Mr. Vincent Cheng Hoi Chuen, GBS, JP Chairman of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking
    Corporation Limited.I am contacting you concerning our customer and, an investment placed under
    our banks management 6 years ago.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 would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you.

    In 2003,Brigadier Amer Ali Nayef, a businessman and also who was with the Iraqi forces, the
    subject came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our Private Banking Services
    Department.He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of Twenty Two million Five Hundred
    Thousand United State Dollars which he wished to have us turn over (invest) on his behalf. I was
    the officer assigned to his case; I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-
    facto chief operations officer of the Private Banking Services Department, 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 favored route in my advice to customers is to start by assessing data on 6000 traditional
    stocks and bond managers and 2000 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 over twenty five million
    United States Dollars, this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low
    risk guaranteed returns on investments. In mid 2004, he asked that the money be liquidated
    because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash payments in Europe. He directed
    that I liquidate the funds and had it deposited with a firm. I informed him that the bank would
    have to make special arrangements to have this done and in order not to circumvent due process,
    the bank would have to make a 9.5 % deduction from the funds to cater for banking and statutory
    charges. He complained about the charges but later came around when I explained to him the
    complexities of the task he was asking of us. Cash movement across borders has become especially
    strict since the incidents of 9/11. I contacted my affiliate in and had the funds available. I
    undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise instructions to the letter to
    deposit the funds in a consultancy firm. He told me he wanted the money there in anticipation of
    his arrival from Iraq later that week. This was the last communication we had, this transpired
    around 9th October, 2004.A number of notices was sent to him, before the war in Iraq bagan 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 so we retrieved the funds back from the firm.

    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. This is the situation. This bank has
    spent great amounts of money trying to track his family they have investigated for months and
    have found no family, the investigation has now come to an end.

    My proposal; I am prepared to place you in a position to give instruction for the release of 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 proceeds 50/50.I would have gone ahead to ask the
    funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line to me and 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 the customer I
    will then officially communicate with firm and instruct them to release the deposit to you. With
    these two things: all is done. The alternative would be for us to have firm direct the funds to
    another bank with you as account holder. This way there will be no need for you to think of
    receiving the money from the firm. We can fine-tune this based on our interactions.

    If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through this same email account
    (xv_chng@yahoo.com.hk). 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 through this email address. 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. If we can be of one accord, send
    me your response on this email immediately to enable us commence this line of discussion.
    I await your response.

    Best Regards,
    Mr. Vincent Cheng

    Sukhvinder,

    I guess you refuse to accept the fact that this is all a scam. All the usual advanced fees, the fake bank accounts, all the excuses as to why they can not transfer the “funds”. The next thing to expect is perhaps insurance fees or legal fees or unforeseen costs for paperwork etc. They will keep you going as long as you keep sending your hard earned cash to them. Like it or not you will not see a cent of this so called 21.5 million. There isn’t much else I can tell you!
    Perhaps you have an accountant or lawyer or bank manager you could discuss this with. Don’t wait until these bottom feeders have emptied you bank account and moved on to their next victim.
    I guarantee 100 percent that you will not and I repeat not receive one nickel from these scammers.
    This site receives thousands of visitors every month and in just over a half a million visitors not one has reported ever receiving a penny in return for the fees some of the readers unfortunately were lured into sending.

    Good Luck

    He did transfer 21.5 million usd into my natwest account but i opened a pro term account which only 8 million goes into the account so the funds were returned to vincent, in order the amount go in fully you need a domicillary account, which i need £8,000 to open this account.

    He told me he has raised £2,000GBP so which leaves £6,000GBP to be paid, i won’t pay a single penny to open the next account, i told him to raise the rest £6,000 and he said i will get the rest if i can, then i said once you have the rest then phone me and send the money to natwest.

    Now he didn’t phone me for the last 2 days, it’s upto him to bring the rest of the money, let’s see if he can raise the rest of the money, he actually listened to me, he’s trying to raise the rest of the money.

    I can get my money back by using barrister, that’s no problem.

    My money has been sent to the attourney’s and natwest so it is really easy to get my money back.

  42. sukhvinder singh says:

    Maybe you are right i’ve been doing this since August 2008, i didn’t receive any money at all, I won’t pay anymore money, if he does make £8,000 do you think i should let him transfer that money to my Natwest account.

    Sukhvinder

    Such a high powered banker as Mr Cheng is having a hard time raising a few thousand dollars? Ghee! The chairman of one of the largest banks in the world must earn that in one day before lunch! Don’t count on seeing any transfers into your Natwest account. Sorry Sukhvimder, keep smiling.

    Gariell

  44. sukhvinder singh says:

    This must be a scam, chairman would never write to me, well he doesn’t need to, he’a richman.
    I’ve payed £2,500 to natwest bank how do i get that back, please give me any steps what to do.

  45. sukhvinder singh says:

    Once i phoned the faker and a woman spoke on the phone and i can hear children at the background that mobile was at home and woman who spoke was the faker’s wife, i actually i didn’t speak to her i put the phone down, there should be a way to speak his wife i reckon she doesn’t know anything about it.

  46. gariell says:

    Sukhvinder

    If I understand you properly; you sent money to the scammer and I don’t think you will be able to get it back. Why are you calling the scumbag? All you are doing is wasting more money on long distance calls.
    Read the Reporting Scams page and get on with it.

    Cheers

    Please give any ideas who to contact to get my money back they took all of my hard earned cash, i don’t have anything left.

  48. gariell says:

    Sukhvinder

    Sorry you lost all that money but unfortunately there is little hope that you will recoup any of it. You should start by reporting this to the authorities since you are a victim of a crime. I suggest you visit http://www.scamvictimsunited.com/ very nice site and will be helpful.

  49. sukhvinder singh says:

    The scumbag is still phoning me, how can this be stopped, he actually phoned me 4 times on Thursday and 2 times on Friday but i didn’t pick the receiver up, how can i stop him phoning me.

  50. gariell says:

    Sukhvinder

    Did you report the bottom feeder? Report the Assw–le to the authorities and stop all correspondence with the scumbag. Do not under any circumstances communicate with the bottom feeder. It is the only way to get the theft off your back. We have done our part, and had him shut down, but, this is only good for a while, since he will open up a new address and continue his scamming ways.

    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 6 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

    know you do not know me and neither do I know you. I am not desperate nor in need of help. I only want to be sure you are the kind of person I can trust with the following proposal. I am Mr. Vincent Cheng Hoi-chuen, GBS, JP Chairman of The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited. I have a concealed business suggestion for you.

    Our client General Abdelaziz Ali who was with the Iraqi forces and also businessman made a fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty one million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Several maturities notices was sent to him, before the war which began in 2003. also after the war another notification was sent,and no response came from him. 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 this Gen.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. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 6 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

    I just found out it’s a scam, he was using microsoft and bill gates in the email, that is really bad.

  74. Dave says:

    Here’s another one that I just received! More of these vermin parasites are still at it! Be forewarned! I am placing it here for all concerned.

    I am Benjamin Ghanemy,British citizen and Principal assurance manager for the
    HSBC in London. A staffv of Yokozona consultancy firm got in touch with me
    regarding the estate of Simeon Arag. And an investment placed under our banks
    management 3 years ago.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 contact you independently of our investigation
    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 1997, the subject matter; Simeon Arag came to our bank to engage in
    business
    discussions with our private banking division. He informed us that he had a
    financial portfolio of 8.35 million United States dollars, which he wished to
    have us turn over (invest) on his behalfI was the officer assigned to
    his case,
    I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto chief
    operations officer, 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 favored route in my advice to customers is to start by assessing data on
    6000 traditional stocks and bond managers and 2000 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 over 10 million United States
    Dollars, this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low
    risk guaranteed returns on investments. In mid 1998, he asked that the
    money be
    liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash
    payments in United Kindom.

    He directed that I liquidate the funds and had it deposited with
    United Assets Management and securities Uk (in their SecuritiesTrading
    Firm).

    I informed him that HSBC London would have to make special
    arrangements to have this done and in order not to circumvent due
    process, the bank would have to make a 9.5 % deduction from the funds to
    cater for banking and statutory charges. He complained about the charges
    but later came around when I explained to him the complexities of the
    task he was asking of us. Cash movement across boarders has become
    especially strict since the incidents of 9/11. I contacted my affiliate in
    United Kingdom and had the funds available in United Assets
    Management and securities. I undertook all the processes and made sure
    I
    followed his precise instructions to the letter and had the funds
    deposited at United Assets Management Uk United Kingdom. United Assets
    Management and securities Uk is a specialist bank that accepts deposits from
    high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations that handle
    valuable products or undertake transactions that need immediate access to
    cash. In Line with instructions, the money was deposited with United
    Assets Management Uk (in their Securities Trading Firm).

    Simeon Arag told me he wanted the money there as soon as he got into
    the United Kingdom,This was the last communication we had, this
    transpired around 25th February 1999.In Sept last year, we got a call from
    United Assets Management Uk informing us about the inactivity of that
    particular portfolio. This was an astounding position as far as I was
    concerned, given the fact that I managed the International private banking
    sector I was the only one who knew about the deposit atUnited Assets
    Management Uk, and I could not understand why Simeon Arag had not come
    forward to claim his deposit. I made futile efforts to locate Simeon
    Arag. Four days later, information started to trickle in, apparently Simoen
    Arag was dead. A person who his description was declared dead of AUTO
    ACCIDENT TRAUMA in Birmingham England.

    We were soon enough able to identify the body and cause of death was
    confirmed. 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. 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 also 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; Simeon Arag
    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 this investigation that resulted in my
    being furnished with your details as a possible relative of the
    deceased.

    My official capacity dictates that I am the only party to supervise the
    investigation and the only party to receive the results of the
    investigation. You have unfortunately declared, and I know that you are in no
    way affiliated with this individual. Whatthis means, you being the last
    batch of names we have considered is that our dear late fellow 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 deposit and the late
    beneficiary of the deposit. According to practice, United Assets Management Uk
    will by the end of this quarter broadcast a request for statements of
    claim to HSBC in London, failing to receive viable claims they will most
    probably revert the deposit back to HSBC in London. This will result in
    the money entering the HSBC in London accounting system and the
    portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division.

    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 occupy certain
    offices and oversee certain portfolios. You should have begun by now to put
    together the general direction of what I propose. There is US$8,370,
    000.00 deposited in United Assets Management Uk.

    I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to
    no one unless I instruct them to do so. I alone know of the existence of

    this deposit for as far as United Assets Management Uk is concerned,
    the transaction with Simeon Arag concluded when I sent the funds to
    United Assets Management Uk, all outstanding interactions in relation to the
    file are just customer services and due process. United Assets
    Management Uk has no single idea of the history or nature of the deposit. They
    are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party
    that comes forward. This is the situation. This bank has spent great
    amounts of money trying to track this man?s family; they have investigated
    for months and have found no family. The investigation has come to an
    end.

    My proposal, I am prepared to place you as the next of kin in a
    proposal toinstruct United Assets Management Uk 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 proceeds 50/50.

    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 Simeon Arag I will then officially communicate with
    United Assets Management Uk 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

    soon.

    I await your response.

    More of the same! Just another one that was sent from above…again, be aware of this!

    I am Benjamin Ghanemy,British citizen and Principal assurance manager for the
    HSBC in London. A staffv of Yokozona consultancy firm got in touch with me
    regarding the estate of Simeon Arag. And an investment placed under our banks
    management 3 years ago.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 contact you independently of our investigation
    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 1997, the subject matter; Simeon Arag came to our bank to engage in
    business
    discussions with our private banking division. He informed us that he had a
    financial portfolio of 8.35 million United States dollars, which he wished to
    have us turn over (invest) on his behalfI was the officer assigned to
    his case,
    I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto chief
    operations officer, 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 favored route in my advice to customers is to start by assessing data on
    6000 traditional stocks and bond managers and 2000 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 over 10 million United States
    Dollars, this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low
    risk guaranteed returns on investments. In mid 1998, he asked that the
    money be
    liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash
    payments in United Kindom.

    He directed that I liquidate the funds and had it deposited with
    United Assets Management and securities Uk (in their SecuritiesTrading
    Firm).

    I informed him that HSBC London would have to make special
    arrangements to have this done and in order not to circumvent due
    process, the bank would have to make a 9.5 % deduction from the funds to
    cater for banking and statutory charges. He complained about the charges
    but later came around when I explained to him the complexities of the
    task he was asking of us. Cash movement across boarders has become
    especially strict since the incidents of 9/11. I contacted my affiliate in
    United Kingdom and had the funds available in United Assets
    Management and securities. I undertook all the processes and made sure
    I
    followed his precise instructions to the letter and had the funds
    deposited at United Assets Management Uk United Kingdom. United Assets
    Management and securities Uk is a specialist bank that accepts deposits from
    high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations that handle
    valuable products or undertake transactions that need immediate access to
    cash. In Line with instructions, the money was deposited with United
    Assets Management Uk (in their Securities Trading Firm).

    Simeon Arag told me he wanted the money there as soon as he got into
    the United Kingdom,This was the last communication we had, this
    transpired around 25th February 1999.In Sept last year, we got a call from
    United Assets Management Uk informing us about the inactivity of that
    particular portfolio. This was an astounding position as far as I was
    concerned, given the fact that I managed the International private banking
    sector I was the only one who knew about the deposit atUnited Assets
    Management Uk, and I could not understand why Simeon Arag had not come
    forward to claim his deposit. I made futile efforts to locate Simeon
    Arag. Four days later, information started to trickle in, apparently Simoen
    Arag was dead. A person who his description was declared dead of AUTO
    ACCIDENT TRAUMA in Birmingham England.

    We were soon enough able to identify the body and cause of death was
    confirmed. 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. 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 also 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; Simeon Arag
    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 this investigation that resulted in my
    being furnished with your details as a possible relative of the
    deceased.

    My official capacity dictates that I am the only party to supervise the
    investigation and the only party to receive the results of the
    investigation. You have unfortunately declared, and I know that you are in no
    way affiliated with this individual. Whatthis means, you being the last
    batch of names we have considered is that our dear late fellow 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 deposit and the late
    beneficiary of the deposit. According to practice, United Assets Management Uk
    will by the end of this quarter broadcast a request for statements of
    claim to HSBC in London, failing to receive viable claims they will most
    probably revert the deposit back to HSBC in London. This will result in
    the money entering the HSBC in London accounting system and the
    portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division.

    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 occupy certain
    offices and oversee certain portfolios. You should have begun by now to put
    together the general direction of what I propose. There is US$8,370,
    000.00 deposited in United Assets Management Uk.

    I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to
    no one unless I instruct them to do so. I alone know of the existence of

    this deposit for as far as United Assets Management Uk is concerned,
    the transaction with Simeon Arag concluded when I sent the funds to
    United Assets Management Uk, all outstanding interactions in relation to the
    file are just customer services and due process. United Assets
    Management Uk has no single idea of the history or nature of the deposit. They
    are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party
    that comes forward. This is the situation. This bank has spent great
    amounts of money trying to track this man?s family; they have investigated
    for months and have found no family. The investigation has come to an
    end.

    My proposal, I am prepared to place you as the next of kin in a
    proposal toinstruct United Assets Management Uk 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 proceeds 50/50.

    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 Simeon Arag I will then officially communicate with
    United Assets Management Uk 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 willm 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.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 onlythrough the numbers I will provide for you and also
    through this email address.I do not want any direct link between you and me.

She believes, that the person who send her the email is the REAL Vincent Cheng, because of the “slight” difference in his e-mail adress (he uses mr.vincentc51@yahoo.com.hk this time) and she has already lost $612,-

    Man, what should I do? What can I do to make her believe me? Moreover she’s thousand kilometers away from me, i’m currently studying overseas. She doesn’t quite understand how to use computers, and she trusts any email that is sent to her. This is like the fifth time it happens. I really don’t know what I should do anymore.

    Sorry to hear that your mother won’t listen to you. These bottom feeders will go to great lengths to convince innocent people that they are legitimate.

    I am contacting you in respect of BRIGADIER AMER ALI NAYEF, a businessman and also who was with the Iraqi forces, who made a fixed deposit of Twenty Two million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch in Hong Kong, in 2003. Subsequently a number of notices was sent to him, in 2004 when the war in Iraq was still going on, 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 6 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 in charge will prepare all the necessary documents.

Hasn’t asked for any personal info which i would never give out and i said my lawyer needs to be involved. No reply about my lawyer but he sent me a form to sign from his lawyer. All sounds good but i don’t think it would be listed as scam unless it was. Wish i could reach through the wire and gram a hold of his little neck and shake the heck out of him. I’m convinced a scam so hope others heed the warning.

    I was sending money through western union and i`ve deleted all the documents from my hard drive and threw away western union receipt away,did i make any mistake.

    As one person said he was threatening him to get arrested,he use to say that to me,a person will get depressed and will start giving his money away,if you believe ,what he says.

    The best policy is to not communicate with these bottom feeders at all. They are low life thieves and nothing more. If you don’t respond to their correspondence they will move and try to con some other innocent soul. Hopefully, they will check out our site before communicating with the bums.

    I have just received this email

    Good Day,

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

    I am contacting you in respect of BRIGADIER AMER ALI NAYEF, a businessman
    and also who was with the Iraqi forces, who made a fixed deposit of Twenty
    Two million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch
    in Hong Kong, in 2003. Sbsequently a number of notices was sent to him, in
    2004 when the war in Iraq was still going on, 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 6 years the
    funds will be reverted to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if
    nobody comes forward for the claim of 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 in charge
    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 ( c.v7861@yahoo.com.hk ) and I will let you know what is
    required of you to do.

    Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

    The most alarming thing about this was that it got through gmail´s spam filter, which is normally extremely efficient in its mail processing.

    But to spot a scam isn´t difficult. The first thing is that the guy is using a Yahoo service, even though he is supposed to be a rich business man who would certainly use his own company´s email service. The second thing are the incoherencies. Why would a guy with 22 million dollars and a family go to war in Iraq? It´s normally for young men who are seeking for money through the military. Also, why would a rich businessman be interested in an illegal fraud, which could send him to prison for years? And the third point is, why would the sender be interested in making money with a complete stranger, and not with someone he knows?

    I think I’m the newest one who had this shit,
    First of all, I’m just wondering, how many people will split those 22.5 “million united states dollars”.
    Second, I don’t know the guy, and did you guys notice how many e-mail addresses he has, is that really him in each e-mail.
    the thing is that who did this is stupid enough to not realize that a person famous like Mr. Vincent Cheng has to have an e-mail address that is related to the company, like (……@HSBC.something) that is really stupid.

    Good luck to everyone who recieves this scam !

    I’m getting these every 6 hours — really a pain in the you know what!!!!

    Am Mr.VCH Cheng of Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited
    Hong Kong. I am getting in touch with you regarding the estate of a
    Deceased client with similar last name as yours and an investment placed
    Under our banks management. 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 contact you independently and no one is informed of this communication.
    In 2003 a Hong Kong businessman who was our Client, made a fixed deposit
    Of $ 18.350.000.00 (Eighteen million Five Hundred Thousand United State
    Dollars only) i my branch, a number of notices were sent to him when it was due,
    But no response came from him till date. We later found out that he
    Along with his family had been killed in the tsunami disaster that
    Happened in Asia that hit their home.
    What bothers me most is according to the laws of my country at the
    Expiration of 7 years the funds will revert to the Hong Kong Government
    If nobody comes for the funds.

    After more inquiry it was also discovered that the late business man did
    Not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper
    Work Of his bank deposit This means that he died inestate and this is the
    Reason I am writing you is because you share the same last name What I expect
    From you Is trust and commitment,
    I want this large sum of money transferred with your assistance and you
    Should have nothing to worry about regarding legality AT ALL. All that is
    Required is your honest co-operation and I guarantee that this will be
    Executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect me and you
    From any breach of the law.What I propose is that since I have exclusive
    Access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these funds.
    You do not have to have known him personally. I know this might
    Be a bit heavy for you but please trust me on this. For all your troubles
    I propose that we split the money in half (50/50).
    In the banking circle this happens every time. The other option is that
    The money Will revert back to the state.

    Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this email
    If you do not appreciate this proposal I have offered you.
    All confirmable documents to back up this fund shall be made available to
    You, As we move on; I shall let you know what is required of you. Your earliest
    Response to this letter will be appreciated.
    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 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 act swiftly on this. Please get back to me immediately via the
    Above email.

    I await your response.

    Hmm? I received an email with the very same dialog as those stated above. It leaves one to question certain aspects in this email and its corrospondence.

    1. How can the amount of funds be different with each person he contacts?

    2. If the amount deposited was infact the sum he stated, how could he can he make more then one transaction or deposit(meaning the amount is not magic and can not be produce multiple times but rather a single transaction for a single $24 million)?

    3. If this is legit and legal, the transaction would not need to be forced on the down low and hidden, so why all the secrecy?

    4. How can you be declared his legal next of kin, when in fact you are not by law or blood?

    5. Why does he not simply do this transaction alone and keep the full amount for himself?

    6. How did he receive your contact information?

    7. How could anyone expect a person to wire money to a complete stranger in the guise of hope and trust?

    I don’t know why this person has decided to steal and scam, but I do know all things come full circle. That being said, this person will one day have to answer for his greed and his deceit.

    In the mean time I ask people to please research anything and everything if you have even the tinest of doubts its legit.

    Take care people!!

  149. Tommy says:

    I also wanted to mention that when I received his email I did in fact reply with questions.

    I asked him how he came by my information, how he expected anyone to trust such a ridiculous transaction and how he questioned the integrity of a person he never met while asking them to particiapte and trust in his.

    He did respond to my questions, however I know this transactional partnership will go no further then our written and sent emailed conversations.

    I do express my empathy to those he deceived, and I will continue to search for measures locally and internationally that might have the power to remove him for good and return the funds to those he has hurt.

    When I locate the proper means in doing this I will notify this forum on how to proceed in retaining that which he has taken. Take care people and God bless!!

    Look for a direct connection between Mr. Vincent Tchenguiz, chairman of Consensus Business Group based in London, UK property tycoon (and his brother Robert Tchenguiz) and the Vincent Cheng scammer along with his colleague “David Bennett” (or, Higgins, i.e. not their real names). Check out the WSJ article about “Arrests Made Over Icelandic-Bank Collapse” published today March 9, 2011. There is a strong parallel connection.

    Hello Partner,

    I am in receipt of the Agreement Letter and the Attorney has just finished with the preparations of the other documents, I am pleased to note that I can rely on your capabilities to handle this transaction this is why I have decided to entrust you with it; I appreciate the fact that you are standing by to assist me in executing this transaction. You should have nothing to worry about, I will do everything officially required to Ensure that this project goes smoothly; it shall pass through all Laws of International Banking.

    To start with, you should note that this project is capital intensive; I need your total dedication and trust to see this through. I know we have not met before, but I am very certain that we will be able to establish the necessary trust needed to accomplish this project.

    The best way I have found is to transfer this funds under the official disguise as your inheritance, and for the attorney to file on your behalf to my bank as your legal representative accompanied with a probate registered power of attorney back up by the attached document which you are to completely fill and sign, at his application he would demand your inheritance to be converted into a Bank in Europe, where you would be required to setup a transit account for this purpose, it will protect us from my bank.

    As a result of this, you will have to open an account in your name in the corresponding bank. And that is your only financial obligation. After this, the money will be banked online for both of us, no other person will be involved in this transaction, after which you shall transfer our various shares into our personal home bank accounts, I want us to enjoy this money in peace when we conclude. That is why you should listen to my directives and follow them amicably. 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.

    I will need you to send me a copy of any form of your identification (I.D, Driver’s license or passport) along with the documents, I want to be sure that I am transacting with the correct person. I shall also send you a copy of my work I.D. upon receipt of your identification and the signed documents. I will also send you the name and contact details of the bank, so that you can commence communication with them, ensure that you keep this project strictly confidential, do not discuss it with anybody, because of the confidential nature of this transaction and my job.

  164. PenPAL says:

    To anyone and everyone who has been marked by this scam operation: Try to acquire as much legitimate and verifiable identification from the person who has contacted you and is impersonating someone he is not. Addresses, Telephone, Fax, ID (not fabricated), photo ID, SKYPE contact information, Facebook page. They may also advance a bank account number to you sooner rather than later. Post all information to this blog so that it can be provided to the UK police and others. The base of the operation is in England. DO NOT PROCEED WITH THESE GANGSTERS AND HOODLUMS. THEY ARE EVIL PEOPLE WHO ONLY MEAN YOU HARM. THEY HAVE SET UP A TERRORIST TYPE OF NETWORK. They do not want a little money from you, they want a LOT. THEY WILL STEAL YOUR LIFE SAVINGS FROM YOU AND POSSIBLY YOUR LIFE. If you cannot get legitimate and verifiable contact information with the first contact, cease and desist. Post any and all information received here and it will be seen. Stick together because, in the end, it is simply a story of good versus evil and, we must win and can win to put a stop to this evil.

    Me too, I received the same e.mail some days ago.I have read the above comments sent by many “would be victims”. Some wonder why the police do not stop him. Some even say why they don’t execute him for good.I have the answer to this question. The thing is that people such this one are backed up by VIP’s- many politicians. Of course they have high percentages of the income.

    Hi Vincent Cheng

    It would be unfair to allow you to wait for my answer. And this opportunity that you have mentioned above are really interesting and attractive. But still I have to point to such offer markets have speculated about on the internet a while ago and is still relevant today.

    I will definitely not judge you and what you have to offer until I got more information about this business proposal and we will certainly examine you heavily so that we know what we are dealing with! And with that I welcome you to contact us

    With very best regards from one who is curious

    Correct. “Mr. Chen Guan” and former “Mr. Vincent Cheng” are one and the same person(s), impersonator network of hoodlums, criminals, mentally disturbed thieves, scammers, sickos, you name it as evil. In the end, God sees all and their world is Hell.

    Dear Friend,

    I am looking for someone to trust who will stand as an Investor to receive the funds as Tenure Investment Proceeds
    I Mr. Vincent Cheng Hoi Chuen, GBS, JP Chairman of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited.

    And i believe in you that you can do it, just don’t worry there is proof and documents regarding this transaction, though I have not seen you in person I believe
    trust is something we can build on,

    just don’t worry we have to trust ourself for this transaction to work out I am assuring you that I will not let you down on this transaction

    My secured business suggestion for you.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 7 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.

    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 favor 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.

    Nobody is getting hurt; this is a lifetime opportunity for us.I hold the KEY to these funds, and as a Chinese National we see so much cash
    and funds being re-assigned daily. I would want us to keep communication for now strictly by the above email and also by
    telephone and fax numbers which I will send to you in my next communication even though my spoken English is not so good. Please,
    again, note I am a family man; I have a wife and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to 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 act
    swiftly on this. Please pardon my writing mistakes. Should you be interested please send me your

    1,Full names,
    2,Private phone number,
    3,Current residential address.
    Please get back to me immediately.

    attach is my ID card.

    I await your response.

    Regards,
    Mr. Vincent Cheng
