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.

Complement of the day,



Thank you for giving me your time. Please be patient and read my email to you.
I am Mrs. Yonghong Wan a staff of Standard Chartered Bank attached in Private
Banking
services. I am contacting you concerning a customer and, an investment placed
under
our banks management 4 years ago, I contacted you independently of our
investigation
and no one is informed of this communication and I would like to intimate you
with
certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you.


In 2004, the subject matter; ref:SSCB/SCB/bank/77 came to our bank to engage in

business discussion with our Private Banking Service Department. He informed
us that
he had a financial portfolio of 23 million United States Dollars, which he
wished to
have us turn over 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 Service Department, especially given the volume of funds
he
wished to put into our bank. We meet 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
600
traditional stocks and bond managers and alternative investments. Based on my
advice,
we spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for
our
first month of operation, the accrued profit and
interest stood at this point at over 10 million United States Dollars, this
margin
was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed
returns on
investments. In mid 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 in Europe. I informed him
that
our 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 incidents
of
9/11.


I contacted my affiliate in Europe and had the funds available in main land
Europe. 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 25th February 2006. In June last
year, we
got a call from the security firm informing us of 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 our bank.
Four days
later, information started to trickle in and I we were inform by the USA
homeland
security, that he is dead. A person who suited his description was declared
dead of a
heart attack in Cannes, 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
in testate.


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$ 23,000,000.00 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 the finance
firm,
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. The finance firm has no single idea of what's the history
or nature
of the deposit. 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 instruct the finance firm to
release 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 and no more. 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. But
on the other hand, you as a foreigner and also with all the necessary legal and

official documentations from me and the presiding attorney and also with the
authority
vested upon me by the original depositor, you would easily pass as the
beneficiary
with the rights to claim. I assure you that I could have the deposit released
to you
in a few days. I will simply inform our bank of the final closing of the file
relating
to the customer. I will then
officially communicate with the finance company 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 or 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
once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by I hope you understand

because for once I found myself in total control and face to face with 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 married woman with 2 kids 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 email:
yonghong2456wan@yahoo.com.hk If you give me positive signals, I will initiate
this
process towards a conclusion Please observe this instruction religiously.
Please note
again, I am a happily married with two kids. I send you this mail not without a

measure of fear as to what the consequences might be, 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. If we can be of one accord, we should plan a
meeting,
soon.


I await your response.

Sincerely,
Yonghong Wan
