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.

Dear Trusted Friend,

Thank you for your response. Let me start by introducing myself to you fully. I am Mr. Peter Chow Foreign Operations Manager of the Bank of China (Hong Kong).

Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Mr. Hamadi Hashem, who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 24 calendar months, with a value of Seventeen Million Three Hundred Thousand United State Dollars (US$17,300,000.00) only in my branch.Upon maturity several notice was sent to him even during the war. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that Mr. Hamadi Hashem and his family had been killed during the war in gun fire at Mukaradeeb in Iraq.

After further investigation it was also discovered that Mr. Hamadi Hashem 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 Seventeen Million Three 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 of ten{10} 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. Hamadi Hashem 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 documents that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr. Hamadi Hashem. 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 movement of the funds to an account that you will open with an online bank. We are going to adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents in your favour. There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking. There is no risk involved at all in the matter, I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is for 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. 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 share in the ratio of 70% for me and 30% for you.

I am now in contact with a foreign online bank. I now intend that you open an account in your name in this foreign online bank. The money would be transferred to your account which you will open with the online bank. 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 this transaction. 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 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 bonafide owner of the funds. After this, you will then instruct the online 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 we commence, I will need you to send me a copy of any form of your identification (Driver's licence or International passport). 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 attach a copy of my international passport to this mail for your perusal and trust.

I will send the name and contact details of the online bank to you after I have received your identification so that you can commence communication with them. Our local telephones lines could be intercepted easily, so they are not safe for the project. This is why I have installed a more private communication. 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.

Kind Regards,
Mr.Peter Chow
