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.

Subject: Details


I want to in the first place thank you for responding to my email. My name is Mr. Patrick K.W Chan, an executive director and chief financial officer of Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Hong Kong.

I contacted you concerning a deceased customer Aziz Musa Numan (An Iraqi Crude oil merchant), and an investment he placed under our banks management. 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.

In June 2001, Aziz Musa Numan came to our bank to engage in business discussions in view of investing 18.3 million United States dollars, which he wished to, have us turn over for him. As the officer in charge of his transaction, I encouraged him to consider various growth funds with prime ratings. The favoured route in my advice to customers is to start by assessing data on 600 traditional stocks and bond managers and 300 managers of alternative investments. Based on my advice, we were able to spin the initial deposit with profit and interest to 22.5 million United States dollars.

Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war (U.S and Iraqi war), Five years ago (2003). Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. After series of investigation, I got information that Aziz Musa Numan and his family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit his home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil well was. Because of the sensitive nature of private banking, most customers want to leave no traces and 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; our now deceased client died in testate.

It is quite clear now that our dear client died with no known or identifiable family member. According to practice, the Private banking sector will by the end of this year broadcast a request for statement of claim to Hang Seng Bank Ltd, failing to receive viable claims they will most probably revert the deposit to Management of Hang Seng Bank Ltd. This will result in the money entering the Hang Seng accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of six {6} years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

What I wish to relate to you will smack off 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 sit upon certain chairs and oversee certain portfolios. What I am saying in essence is that there is US$22,500,000.00 deposit just lying unclaimed. And all investigation by the bank to locate a next of kin has come to an end no success.

My proposal; I am prepared to furnish the necessary details to you as the closest surviving relation. I am also proposing that after successful execution of the business deal and the money in your account, the funds be disbursed in the ratio 30/70; 30% of the funds will go to you for offering yourself as the next of kin and providing a foreign account for safe transfer of the funds and 70% will be for me. Please let me know in your next correspondence if the above sharing ratio is okay by you.

I will please ask that if you find no interest in this project, discard this mail and forget I ever contacted you. However, note that huge opportunities like this only come ones way once in a lifetime. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to take them to another level in life. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. If you give me positive signals, I will give you the relevant modus operandi to initiate this process towards a conclusion. Do not betray my confidence. I await your response.

Subject: You are assured but you must keep things to your self

I am glad to receive your email with an indication of readiness to participate in this venture. I understand your concerns and they were put into consideration in the planning of this project. I have to let you know that as the transaction progresses you will be educated fully on the modus operandi and definitely you will appreciate you are a part of a perfect master plan. I assure you that you will be happy partnering with me.

I have to assured you that everything will be legally done. Definitely this money does not belong to me, which I have alreadytold you and with my position at the bank I should be able to know what to do for a safe operation because I have done my homework.

Although the project is capital intensive, I know I will be able to pull it through following proper banking and legal channels with your assistance at your end. I am already tidying up the legal aspect with the assistance of a lawyer who was very close to the deceased customer.

If I a director in a bank and for funds I manage in the private banking section of the bank say it is a deal, then you should know that I have perfected my plans for a successful execution. So I have to reassure you that every modality for a successful execution was put in place before I contacted you.

What i require of you is just your consent and full cooperation. As i said in my last mail the only risk i have is you not agreeing to this project that is if in case you decide to open your mouth.

Therefore i do not envisage any riskif we all play by the rules and principles guiding this deal. I have a master plan for this project that if followed religiously we must definitely have a smooth ride to success. Both of us have our individual responsibilities and roles to play for a successful execution of the project.

From the way i have planned this project as i will unfold to you, there will be no fear whatsoever, regarding the authorities both in your country and my country here.

I have nursed this Idea since we heard of the death of our customer, and the circumstances surrounding his deposit. I wish to know that you will be ready to do this with me because as i now feel strongly you have the credentials and from the questions you ask, you look like a very careful person.

This transaction has been properly mapped out for a successful execution without any hitch or infringement of any law since it will be done in line with all legal and banking principle provisions.

Therefore i urge you to try to follow me religiously and plans that could distort this arrangement should be minimizes or totally avoided. Such plansmay not to the best interest of this transaction.

Subject: More information

I appreciate your interest in my proposal and I sincerely hope we can work together as a two-man team in the spirit of partnership in this venture. I strongly believe in the power and spirit of PARTNERSHIP in business. Partnership is all about mutual understanding, mutual efforts /contribution and mutual benefits for all parties involved in the partnership. On this note, I would want us to work as a team in pursuit of this interest with utmost professionalism, transparency, commitment, trust and confidentiality. Let it be known to you that this project is highly capital intensive, this is why I have to be very careful of whom I choose to do this with me.

I am in contact with you because I know I cannot execute this transaction alone considering the nature. I am also proposing that after we have successfully transferred the funds out of my bank. I am also proposing that you assist in investing the fund in a profitable business since I will not want my share transferred to me immediately. Note that I will do everything legally required to ensure that the project goes smoothly, it shall pass through all Laws of International Banking, and you have my word. Having resolved to entrust this transaction into your hands, I want to remind you that, it needs your commitment and diligent follow up. If you work seriously, the entire transaction should be over in a couple of days.

I would also want to inform you that I am now in contact with our corresponding bank in Europe; they are also into offshore banking. I will need you to open an offshore account with this bank in your name. The money would then be transferred into this new account you will open, this is the best way I think we could be protected from my bank, because I know if we do not do it in the most unsuspecting manner, they will raise eyebrow which could lead to further investigation. So please do follow my plans religiously because I have the master plan for a hitch free transfer of these funds out of my bank in your favour. I want us to enjoy this money in peace when we conclude.

I will obtain a certificate of deposit from my bank, and it will be issued in your name, which will make you the bonafide owner of the funds. After the funds has been transferred out of my bank into the new account you will open in our corresponding bank, we can then instruct the bank to transfer the funds to a secured bank you will provide in your country or any other safe haven in small unsuspecting volumes.

I will also perfect necessary documentation with the assistance of an attorney to give the transaction the legal right it requires. I will need you to provide the following before we go further;

  1. Your work designation (Occupation)
  2. Your age
  3. Marital status
  4. your current residential address
  5. A copy of your means of identification (ID) (Drivers License or International Passport or any national ID)
  6. Your full name

    I want to be sure that I am transacting with the correct person. As soon as I get these from you and sure that you agree to work with me, the paper work will be commenced. I hope you will understand why I need all these, besides knowing you well as well as being sure you are serious, my bank will need your identification before payment can be released in your favour since the money in question is big. Note that I will also send you my Work Identification and my family pictures upon receipt of your identification. I will also send the name and contact details of the bank once I ascertain that you are prepared 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 work.

    Please reply soonest.

Subject: Details

As I have told you earlier all modalities are already in place for a successful execution of this transaction because I have every tool at my disposal as an executive director in the bank and also as the de facto Head of operation of the private banking division.

I wish to inform you that should you contact me via official channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. 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. 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 personal email account.

I am very confident that we will be able to establish the trust that is needed to complete this deal and all that I need from you is your willingness and commitment so that we can end this in the next few days.

What you need to understand about this transaction is that I will make sure that it passes through all international banking laws regards to this I will take care of all the expenses at my end which include the cost of retaining the service of an Attorney to give the transaction the proper documentation that is required to perfect the claim as well as the cost of the documentation, other logistics and notarization of all documents here. Your only obligation in this transaction will be to set up an offshore account that can accommodate these funds and I will educate you more later once you agree to partner with me.

Like I said before there is no risk involve as it will pass through international banking laws and all documents related to this transaction will be sent to you for your perusal and trust.
Note that I am highly handicapped with respect to the manner I conduct myself as far as this transaction is concerned here at the bank because of my position. Besides, the laws here in Hong Kong and most part of Asia are very stringent. Contravening the laws is tantamount to serious penalty on my part, so while I brave the venture, I will have to still watch my back. Therefore, we will restrict our communication to email because this is my private email and all communication from me to you will be done in most unsuspecting manner. It is very easy to track telephone conversation so please bear with me.

If we play by the rules as I have spelt them, then we have no problem at all. I will guide you on how and whereto open the offshore bank account when the time comes

Let me know if you are proceeding with me at the earliest time.

Subject: Our individual responsibilities

Furtherance to my proposal, it is proper i inform you that hence we have decided to go into partnership to see that this project gets completed and sealed soonest, there will be need we define our responsibilities before getting far into the project as that will help both parties know what is expected of us to do at the very right time.

You are expected and will be responsible to set-up an offshore transit account with a reputable bank in Europe which i think you have already aware of and agreed upon while i will be responsible for the legal charges of perfecting all legal documentations.

The funds will be transferred from our bank here into your newly established account with the bank, which i am going to introduce to you. I also did inform you that i have mapped out all possible ways to see this project through to success at the long-run. Hence the need i have to explain properly to you why this plan was designed this way.

It would have been very possible getting the funds across to any of your designated account of your choice but it is so unfortunate that this method cannot be used in executing a project of this sort and magnitude because the monetary regulatory bodies in your countrys banking system would or might investigate the source and origin of the fund especially since it involves the transfer of a very large sum into your account in your country or any other existing account of yours. It was basically because of this reason I decided we use our corresponding bank in Europe which I intend to introduce to you which has a transaction agreement terms with our bank/ in Hong Kong and also since both banks share same telex type.

This method stands as the fastest, safest and easiest means the funds can leave my bank after all documents in your name and favour has been used to file an application for fund release in your name being the next of kin of the deceased customer.

Kindly get back to me with your response after you have carefully read through the contents of this mail so I can instruct the lawyer to proceed in perfecting the documents in your name and favour and also furnish you with the contact information of the bank so you can make enquiries on how to set-up an offshore transit account with their finance establishment.

Copies of necessary documentations will be sent over to you for your perusal and file records as well. As soon as i read from you, the attorney will have them prepared.

I await your timely response to this mail.

Best regards to you and the family.

Subject: Please try to be discreet

First i must point out that one of the very important principles of this transaction is confidentiality because of the nature of the project. In my previous emails I had stressed the importance for us to be very discreet about the way we conduct ourselves while in the process of ensuring the transaction is a success. We should not do things or act in a way that could arouse public glare or make people ask us questions we cannot answer straight. You know what I mean, assuming somebody suspects you are doing a business transaction which you want to keep to your self, he/she would want to ask what you are trying to hide, in the process of trying to cover up, you may not be coordinated in your speech which will even increase the suspicion.

To avoid the above you must be matured in the way you manage information. I am very experienced by virtue of my career and training and there is nothing I do not know about human nature. There is no act to tell the minds construction of the face; the heart of man is desperately wicked. You know, people are so jealous that they do not want their neighbour to surpass them in anyway, therefore if they know that you have an opportunity that will put you ahead of them in any ramification of life they will try every means to frustrate you and discourage you.

I would want to let you know that there is nothing about banking as far as this transaction is concerned that i will not be able to tell you so going to ask advice from a thirdparty is not acceptable and will not be to our best interest in this transaction. If I found out you do that i will never be comfortable with you in such instance because i did not tell you this money is mine but i am just trying to take advantage of an opportunity by virtue of my position as i am privileged.

So try as much as possible to avoid traces in all its ramifications

I want to let you know more about myself so that you will be rest assured of whom you are transacting with. My full names are Mr. Chan Kwok Wai Patrick, I am 52 years of age, I am married with two children Liu my daughter and Lee my son, and I am sending you my family picture now for you to see. My address is #1, Fortune Garden, 20 Wing Ting Road, Ngan Chi Wan, Kln, Hong Kong. I have lived here for the last 14years. It is not ideal to have your documents send via regular mail; you can scan, attached and send via email. You know it is very risky for me.

Note that the lawyerwill beon the way regarding perfecting the paper work once i hear from you. I have really invested much in this transaction. I do hope the percentage of the total funds that I have proposed to give to you is okay by you. To remind you, I will be coming over to your country for my share of the funds, once the funds credit your account at the bank that we will be using for this transaction.

Please endeavour to keep this transaction confidential, Please do not discuss it with anybody, I have a 24 years banking experience and 14 years career with my present bank (Hang Seng) and I do not intend to ruin all that. I really cannot wait till the funds leave my bank because I have not been able to sleep nor eat properly for the past days. Attach to this email is my work ID and my family pictures for your reference.

I believe this information would be enough to assure you of who you are dealing with.

I will give your details to the attorney to begin the process once you confirm to me that youwill contactour correspondingoffshore bank toopen the offshore account.

Subject: Regarding the offshore account opening

Opening an offshore account is simple.Once i send you the details of the offshore Bank you will have to make contact with them and inquire on how to open an offshore account. Like in our bank we open such account for customers all over the world without necessarily traveling to Hong Kong

The basic thing required from you is filling account opening forms and sending a means of Identification. Some banks may require reference but i do not think this our correspondence bank makes their potential customers go through all these rigors because they are still trying to woo more customers. You will also have to send to them aninitial deposit to set up the account in your name.

You must not be physically there for the account opening. Do not tell me you are oblivious of the internet revolution and the crave for e- trade, e-banking, e-communication and the like? You should be aware that there is nowadays online/internet banking? The world is gradually becoming a global village as many transactions are now at the comfort of your office, home or telephone inside your car and so on without visiting a physical office.

You can open an offshore account in Europe without traveling. So thatwill not be a problem when the time comes for you to open this account.Once you get back to me to assure me that you canopen this account I will immediately furnish you with the details so that you can open communication with them to inquire on how to open an offshore online account. Andi will give your details to the lawyer to begin the documentation over here.

In our bank we have customers from all over the world, most of which has not visited Hong Kong yet they are very satisfied with the services we give to them

Regarding the cost I do not know exactly how much it cost to open an offshore account in our corresponding bank in Europe right now.

However, the last time such inquiry was made i gathered that in our corresponding offshore bank, they have an offshore account type that takes as low as around $2,000 to open depending on the conversion rate.
I do not think this will be a problem for you. Even in the face of economic downturn, we have to go the extra mile to take advantage of opportunities that could raise us above the global economic misfortune.
I look forward to a positive response.

Subject: Please you have to go the extra mile

It is unfortunate that youmay not have enough funds with youas youmentioned in your last emailbut i urge you to try your best because the expenses i am running over here is in the face of some financial constraint as well but I cannot run away from it since I have decided to embark on this project. I expect you as my partner to take this project with your innermost determination and desire to fulfill.

Let me tell you,if you look at the constraint every human being has financially no matter the levelyou will not be able to do anything. Big firms and corporations do borrow money even the government do also to accomplish one goal or the other. You have to find a way of getting things around.

For any task you find lay before you, you have to think of the very best options to accomplishing it. Do not put up a defeatist attitude towards it rather wake up your thinking faculty and get the best solution available, making a sacrifice which is a veritable tool of determination to achieve a goal in life. Opportunity is like a light that flashes in within a very short time period and goes and if you do not take advantage of it while it subsisted, you may likely lose it forever. Personally i am always awake to this realization that is why i do not joke with any opportunity that opens up.

I have gone the extra mile to even borrow money in view of the expenses required of me in this project at my end. You do not realize what it takes to bring a transaction of this magnitude to this level. Besides, i have spent a lot of money already to plan this project to this stage of hatching. I was able to confidently do that because i know i could pay back to my creditors even if it will be at 100% interest rate.

When opportunity comes, some people miss it because they refuse do something to retain it. Opportunity is a give and take situation, you do not fold your arms when it comes knocking, you must open your hands to receive it. Therefore, you do not have to fold your arms. Have you asked yourself; why should it be you out of the millions of people that i could approach for a transaction that requires trust. It is not a coincidence but a divine arrangement for a mutually benefiting relationship.

If i had folded myarms, this opportunity will not be available in the first place and i would not have been able to fund it.Do not fold your arms, do something. This is the struggle i have been alive to for the past months until i brought you in. It takes time to plan an operation of this magnitude before it is hatched. Hope you understand?

My friend and partner in progress, please do everything humanly possible to getthe funds needed for the account opening, even if it means for you to get a loan do it as we will pay back even if itis at 100% interest, once the funds credits your account. You also know that the funds used in opening an account still belongs to the account holder so it is still our funds and will be given to you immediately the funds have been transferred outto your local bank account.These funds mean the world to my entire family, and me as our whole life depends on it.

I have to assure you that this transaction worth taking any sacrifice for because it is a life changing opportunity. As for me this opportunity cannot pass me by. Please you should have the same positive attitude towards this transaction, so you do not have to rest on your oars. You have to try every means possible to open the account.

My friend, you will not regret any decision you take, incase you have a means of accessing funds to open the account because that is only what you need to do from your end besides providing an account in your country where we will eventually transfer the funds.

Know this: Winners never quit and quitters never win

Let me know from you the direction to follow.

Subject: Your question

The reason we are passing it through our corresponding bank is because of the flexibility of moving the fund in bulk from my bank. No question will be raised if it is moved entirely to the corresponding offshore account you will open.
From this offshore you can transfer according to the amount that is convenient for you at anytime. Unlike that large chunk of 22.5 million dollars that my bank expect to be transferred out. besides, i do not want to allow the fund remain there in my bank for too long if the management has given arrangement.
I do hope you understand better now. there is no need to be confused.

You mentioned that you did not find the name of the bank in the information I sent you. I am sure there is something in your mind that you want to get answer to. My friend you do not expect me to send you the information of a bank that is not capable of handling a transaction of this magnitude. See the information I send you below.

Post bank B.V.

Contact Person: Pieter Rodolf

Email: accounts@postbnknl.com

Tel: +31 616 721 508

Fax: +31 847 571 331

The name of the bank is post Bank. They have just recently merged with ING bank to better serve their customers. Their website is www.postbank.nl . This site will automatically redirect to ING Netherlands/ Website. Please I do not want you to entertain doubts in your mind, there is a perfect master plan for success and so everything will move well.
I also wondered why you are coming up with the issue of how i chose you at this stage.
I contacted you after i prayed that God give me a trustworthy partner, although you may ask how I knew you are trust worthy but I am saying my intuition indicates that to me. Trust is not based only on observation or how long you have related with a person but sometimes divinely orchestrated. I have trusted you believing that you will give me the same measure of trust in return.

Actually I got your contact from Hong Kong commerce and Industry, during my discrete online search through a web based directory while searching for a foreign partner to execute this project together. This is where all individual and business contacts are kept. So do not wonder again how I contacted you.

If you may not know, bymy trust, i am more at risk because i know what i am putting in this project, if it fails then my economy is ruined. However, i still repose that strong confidence in you knowing that you will deliver as at when due. I always follow the first thought that come s to my mind because that i believe is the voice of God to me. Since i saw your contact and my mind says this is the person; i have to follow it up because it has not failed me in the past.
When i first thought of this project a second thought told me it is very risky what of if it is not successful, but i carried on because my first thought said go. This is just one of many instances like this. I do believe it is a success already and i am dealing with the right person.
Please go ahead with the account opening because the lawyer is working hard here to ensure the timing of the project will be shortened.
So have it in your mind that we are divinely knitted together

Subject: Inheritance application form

I do not know why you have not responded back after my last email, but i just told you the basic truth for us to have a hitch free transaction. Please get back to me with feed back on how far you have gone regarding the offshore account opening with post bank netherlands.

Note that the lawyer has gone far with my bank regarding perfecting the documentation. He has also recorded some progress at the court regarding the legal documentation. However, according to him he sent somebody to Iraq to get a document requested by the probate registry and the person should be due back soon. Hopefully,in few days time according to him approval could be secured and it will be possible to request transfer which is to be routed to the Europe Bank. Going by theprogress the lawyer has recorded already about the paper work and the like, i think he will be able to fulfill his promise of rounding off this deal within days.

Please ensure that you follow up with the bank and open the account quickly because with the kind of progress that the lawyer is making the possibility of approval is very close, as he has indicated. We should not be found wanting in this regard. Once approval is secured we are expected to prompt the attorney to make a transfer request on your behalf.

He was given a document from the bank to be filled that I know is the usual practice here in our bank regarding inheritance claim by next of kins. I am attaching the document.It is requiredthatyou fill and return urgently.
