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.

From:Mr. Zhu Li
HANG SENG BANK LTD.

Good Day,

I am Zhu Li a staff of HANG SENG BANK LTD (Private Banking Services
department) HONG KONG. I am contacting you concerning our customer and, an
investment placed under our banks management 6 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 2002, the subject matter; ref: bb/boc/bank/0012 came to our bank to
engage in business discussions with our Private Banking Services
Department. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of 10.370
million United States Dollars, which he wished to have us turn over
(invest) on his behalf.I was the officer assigned to his case; I made
numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto chief
operations officer of the Private Banking Services Department, 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 12
million United States Dollars,this margin was not the full potential of
the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments.



In 2005, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to make
an urgent investment requiring cash payments in Europe. He directed that
I liquidate the funds and had it deposited with a firm. I informed him
that the bank 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 borders has become especially strict since the incident
of 9/11. I contacted my affiliate in and had the funds available.I
undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise
instructions to the letter and had the funds deposited in a security
consultancy firm, the firm 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. He 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 9th
October 2005. In January this year, we got a call from the security firm
informing us that the inactivity 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 , and I could not understand why he had not come forward to claim
his deposit. I made futile efforts to locate him I immediately passed the
task of locating him to the internal investigations department of the
bank. Four days later, information started to trickle in, apparently he
was dead. A person who suited his description was declared dead of a
heart attack in Canne, South of France.



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; he
died interstate.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. The investigation did not ever yield any
result 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. 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, the firm will by the end of this financial year
broadcast a request for statements of claim to HANG SENG BANK. failing to
receive viable claims they will most probably revert the deposit back to
HSB HONG KONG. This will result in the money entering the HSB accounting
system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the Private
Banking Services Department. This will not happen if I have my way.What I
wish to relate to 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.



There is US$13,875,000.00 deposited, 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 HSB is
concerned, the transaction with our deceased customer concluded when I
sent the funds to the firm, all outstanding interactions in relation to
the file are just customer services and due process. They are simply
awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that comes
forward.. This is the situation. This bank has spent great amounts of
money trying to track this man's family; they have investigated for
months and have found no family. The investigation has come to an end.



My proposal; I am prepared to place you in a position to give
instruction for the release of 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 file relating to the customer I will then officially
communicate with the firm and instruct them to release the deposit to
you. With these two things: all is done. The alternative would be for us
to have the firm 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 the firm. We can fine-tune this based on our interactions.I
am aware of the consequences of this proposal. I ask that if you find no
interest 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's 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 want you
contacting me through my official email account. Contact me only through
this email address:mr.zhuli_1964@yahoo.co.uk



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 learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray
my confidence.



Best regards,
Zhu Li.
