"I will demand an apology from you"

Hello, I am Miss Young. I received this story from a friend. Let me call him Tan.

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

Dear Miss Young
pls take a look and reply if it is a scammer and a professional scammers out to get your money....
Mr Good Day,
Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Patrick K.W. Chan (Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer) of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have an obscured business suggestion for you.
Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Gen. Abbas Radhi Ismail 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 States 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. Abbas Radhi Ismail 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 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. Abbas Radhi Ismail 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. Abbas Radhi Ismail, 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.
Once the funds have been transferred to a nominated bank account we shall then share in the ratio of 70% for me, 30% for you. Should you be interested please send me the following:
1. Full names
2. Private phone/fax
3. Current residential address
and I will prefer you reach me on my private email address below and finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this operation.
Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
Kind Regards
Mr. Patrick Chan.

Dear Partner
I want to thank you in as much as I appreciate the concern you expressed towards the nature of this transaction, I considered it as an insult to my person and status for you to have compared my offer with some unscrupulous people you may have dealt with in the past.
I will demand an apology from you if you regard this project and my generous offer as a scam. Look, I have not and do not intend to ask you for any money whatsoever to get anything done on my side. So, I will at this very point want to know your status in this project.
However,I would like to be sure of your willingness, trustworthiness and assurance to execute this transaction with me, I cannot afford to compromise these virtues considering the money involved, it is necessary for me to be sure of the person to whom I will be entrusting this transaction, and my trust is not given out lightly. 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.
I want to know if you are willing to follow up this business seriously before I can give you more details about this transaction; however I shall be waiting for your response and assurance, along with the requested information(full names, current residential address and phone number) before the Attorney goes ahead with preparation of the required credentials naming you as the sole beneficiary of the funds, Upon the receipt of your assurance that I should go ahead, I shall provide you with further details on this operations.

Hi Patrick Chan,
In regard  to my letter i am sorry if the previous message offended  your reading it.  I am a person who is very direct in my approach and never realise the consequence of my words.  I was a victim in this.  Perhaps next time i will explain all my losses in USD.  Now i am too poor to pay anymore.  As it is i am very curious why i was chosen?  And how did you come to know my email?  Of course i would like to give my details at the next message after you read this sincere apology...  Also, can you guess i am a lady or man?

When Tan realized that it was a scam he stopped answering Patrick.

The Patrick Chan scam is very common. They use false Certificates of Deposit. You can see more here:
