Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled "Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.

If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

Subject: Business Proposal
From: "Shawn Curtis" <info@mail.com>

Good Day

I know this is an unconventional way of introducing a big and profitable
business deal,
but I however want you to take your time to read my letter carefully, you
will
understand the necessity for my action. I got your email address from the
Ministry of
Commerce Directory

I am Shawn Curtis , staff of International Private Banking at HSBC BANK
London.

I am contacting you concerning a deceased customer and an investment he
placed under our
banks management three 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 contacted 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 2001, the subject matter came to our bank to engage
in business
discussions with our private banking division. Heinformed us that he had a
financial
portfolio of Twenty Two Million United States Dollars ($22,000,000.00
USD),which he
wished to have us turn over(invest) on his behalf. I was the officer
assigned to his
case; I was 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
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 ten 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 2002, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to
make an urgent
investment requiring cash payments in here in the United Kingdom.He
directed that I
liquidate the funds and deposit it with a security firm here in London. I
informed him
that HSBC Plc 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 here in London and made the funds available to
the security
firm. I undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise
instructions to
the letter and had the funds deposited at the London based security
consultancy firm,
Corporate Securities Co. Corporate Securities Co is a specialist private
firm 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. This
small and highly private organization is familiar especially to the highly
placed and
well-connected organizations. In line with Instructions, the money was
deposited with
Corporate Securities Co. The deceased told me he wanted the money; there
in anticipation
of his arrival from Norway later that week.This was the last communication
we had, this
transpired around 25th June 2003. In June last year, we got a call from
Corporate
Securities Co informing us that the activity of that particular portfolio.
This was an
astounding position as far as I was concerned, given the fact that I
managed the private
banking sector I was the only one who knew about the deposit at Corporate
Securities Co,
and I could not understand why the deceased had not come forward to claim
his deposit. I
made futile efforts to locate the deceased. I immediately passed the task
of locating
him to the internal investigations department of NRS Plc. Four days later,
information
started to trickle in, apparently our client was dead. A person who suited
his
description was declared dead of a heart attack in Cannes, South of France.

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. 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 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; the deceased died without a
testament .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
withyour 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. What this 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, Corporate Securities Co will by the end of
this financial
year broadcast a request for statements of claim to HSBC Plc ,failing to
receive viable
claims they will most probably revert the deposit back to HSBC Plc. This
will result in
the money entering the HSBC Plc 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 t o you will smack of 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. 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 HSBC Plc is concerned,
the
transaction with our late customer concluded when I sent the funds to
corporate
securities, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are just
customer
services and due process. Corporate Securities Co has no single idea of
what the history
or nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting instructions torelease
the deposit to
any party that comes forward. This is the situation.This bank has spent
great amounts of
money trying to track this mans family; they have investigated for months
and have found
no family. The investigation has come to an end. My proposal; you share
similar details
to the late fellow; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct
Corporate
Securities Co 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 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 filerelating to the
deceased I will
then officially communicate with Corporate Securities Co and instruct them
to release
the deposit to you. With thesetwo things: all is done. The alternative
would be for us
to have Corporate Sec unities Co 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 Corporate
Securities Co. We can fine-tune this based on our interactions. I am aware
of the
consequences of this proposal. I ask that if you find nointerest 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 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 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. Let share the blessing. If you find yourself able
to work with
me, contact me through this same email account. 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
wouldn\'t?t you
contacting me through my official email account.Contact me only through
the numbers I
will provide for you and also 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.

Please observe this instruction religiously. 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 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
learn t from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If
we can be of
one accord, we should plan a meeting, soon.Thank you so much for your time.

Please respond to my private email on shawn.curtis99@yahoo.com

I look forward to hearing from you soonest.

I await your response.

Shawn Curtis.
