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.

I am Mr.Wang Mok, Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have a concealed business suggestion for you. Our client Gen.Aadel Akgaal Bastaan who was with the Iraqi forces and also businessman made a fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Several maturities 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 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 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 will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 5 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 Gen.Aadel Akgaal Bastaan 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 Gen.Aadel Akgaal Bastaan. 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.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.
Should you be interested send me the following:
1, Full names,
2, private phone number,
3, current residential address,
And I prefer you reach me on my private email address below: (email@example.com) after which I shall provide you with more details on this operation. Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
