Dear Miss Young,
I must thank
you very much for sparing your good time to respond to the business proposal
that will benefit both parties at the end. Be assured, this transaction is
risk free and a very genuine business and please also note that i do not
want you to disclose details of this transaction to any third party because
confidentiality would be the bedrock of this transaction if we must
Once again, I
am Mr. Ming Yang, Director of Operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Sai Wan
Ho Branch, Hong Kong. I am a 53 years old looking forward to retirement with
an intention of investing in a profitable venture in your country like real
estate and estate properties.
Before the U.S
and Iraqi war, our client Mr. Sadeq Ja'afar Hussain who was an Iraqi
businessman, made a fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of
$24,500,000 (Twenty Four million, Five Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars) only in my branch. Upon maturity, several notices were sent to him,
even during the war early this year. Again after the war, another
notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found
out that our client and his family were killed during the war in a bomb
blast that hit their home.
investigation, it was also discovered that Mr. Sadeq Ja'afar Hussain 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, which no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So,
$24,500,000 (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 3 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. Sadeq Ja'afar Hussain so that you will be
able to receive his funds.
WHAT IS TO BE
I want you to
know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out
successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary
document that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr. Sadeq Ja'afar
Hussain, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide
me with your full names, address and a valid copy of your international
passport or drivers license so that the attorney can commence his job
immediately. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will
also file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and
letter of probate in your favor for the transfer of the funds to an account
in Europe. There is no risk involved at all in this transaction, as we are
going to adopt a legalized method, and the attorney will prepare all the
necessary documents to back it up.
the assistance you shall render me I will offer you 50% of total
to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Your
earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
remember to send me email with the code: [CODE NO: AM-002]. This is strictly
for security reasons.
GOD bless you
my very good friend and partner.

Dear Miss Young,
After I had carefully read your emails with all the documents attached I was shocked and totally disappointed at what some persons mostly from the African continents does to their prey in issues concerning scam. We are all also aware of the Scams as reported by int’l renowned media and sources like CNN, BBC, Time magazine, etc. All these are facts.
First of all, I must let you know that regarding this as a scam would be rather insulting to me, I have told you before that being a part of this transaction would only be at your free will and acceptance; you have the choice to accept or refuse.
I will not tolerate any direct or indirect insults from you for any reason whatsoever, I have my dignity to live up to, perhaps you need to earn the respect and trust which I have for you, otherwise what will be the point of doing business with you if at this early stage you are finding it difficult to trust me, or at least give me benefit of the doubt and al this note, I must let you know that our both commitment and diligence would ensure that we have this deal concluded as soon as possible.
All I want at this stage is for you to send me all I ha requested from you in my previous emails to you. I await an urgent email response from you. Regards,
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....
