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.

Hong Kong.

Thank you for your response, Let me introduce myself again. I am Mr Joseph Poon Managing Director and Deputy Chief Executive of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Mr. Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed who was a business merchant and a contractor with the Iraqi Government but a citizen of SAUDI ARABIA, Made a numbered fixed deposit for 24 calendar months(2Years), with a value of Twenty Two million Four Hundred Thousand United State 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 Mr. Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit His Resident.

After further investigation it was also discovered that Mr. Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed 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 Two million Four 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 6 years and 8 month 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. Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed so that you will be able to receive his funds for us.


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 Mr. Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed; with the information you had provided the attorney will 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 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 to adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. Please endeavour to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue, however I would like to be sure of your willingness, trustworthiness and commitment 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, my trust is not given out lightly, I need to be convinced that you are a matured person with some integrity.

Furthermore, if we follow up this transaction diligently it would be completed within 8 working days. What I expect from you is trust and commitment; I want this large sum of money transferred with your assistance. I want to know if you are willing to follow up this business seriously before I can give you more details about this transaction, I shall be waiting for your response and assurance. Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards

Mr Joseph Poon

Dear ,

Thank you very much for your response and your interest in this transaction It was nice talking to your on phone, I am also glad to note that you are a noble and trustworthy person whom I can rely on for your capabilities to handle this transaction that is why I decided to do this business with you, and due to this issue on my hands now, it became necessary for me to seek your assistance, I appreciate the fact that you are ready to assist me in executing this project. You should not have anything to worry about, I will do everything legally required to ensure that this project goes smoothly, it shall pass through all Laws of International Banking. Having resolved to entrust this transaction into your hands, I want to remind you that, it needs your commitment and diligent follow up. If we work seriously, the entire transaction should be over in a couple of days. I have tried reaching you via email and was thinking that you are no longer interested as these funds are still lying in my bank.


Firstly, you should note that this project is highly capital intensive, this is why I have to be very careful; I need your total devotion and trust to see this through. I know we have not met before, but I am very confident that we will be able to establish the necessary trust that we need to execute this project.

I am now in contact with a foreign online bank; I now intend that you open an account in your name in this foreign bank. The money would be transferred to that account which you will open in the bank for both of us, this is the best way, I have found, it will protect us from my bank. I want us to enjoy this money in peace when we conclude. So you should listen to my instructions and follow them religiously. Also you have to know that I cannot transfer this money in my name as my bank will be aware that it is from me. This is where I need you. As a result of this, you will have to open an account in the corresponding bank and that is your only financial obligation.

After this, the money will be banked online for both of us, no other person will be involved in this transaction, and we can then instruct the bank to transfer our various shares into our respective home bank accounts. I will also perfect the documentations with the assistance of my attorney to give the transaction the legal right, and I have attached to this mail, a copy of the application for funds release documents which you are to complete and sign, then scan and send as attachment to E-mail back to me immediately or send via fax With any form of identification, passport or drivers License. As soon as i get this back from you the attorney will begin the processing of our funds and the documents that will name you as the sole beneficiary to the funds.

I will send the name and contact details of the bank and their website to you so that you can commence communication with them. Ensure that you keep this project confidential; do not discuss it with anybody, because of the confidential nature of this transaction and my job.

Please reply soonest.

Kind Regards
