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.

I am Mr. Li Le Song credit officer of the Foriegn Operations Dept.
of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd,Taikoo Shing Branch.I have a obscured business
suggestion for you.Before the U.S and Iraqi war our
client Colonel Sadiq Uday who was with the Iraqi forces and also
business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value
of Nineteen millions Five Hundred Thousand United state Dollars Only
(USD$19,5M) in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent
to him, even during the war early last year.
Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response
came from him. We later find out that the Colonel and his family had
been killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home.After further
investigation it was also discovered that Colonel Sadiq Uday 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,
Nineteen millions Five 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
4 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 Colonel Sadiq Uday so that
you will be able to receive his funds.
WHAT IS TO BE DONE:
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 Colonel
Sadiq Uday,all that is required from you at this stage is for you to
provide me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can
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 favor for the move of the funds to an account that
will be provided by you.There is no risk involved at all in the matter
as we are going to adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare
all the necessary documents.Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion
in all matters concerning this issue.Once the funds have been transferred
to your nominated bank account the sharing ratio is open for negotiation
for you . Should you be interested please send me your full names and
current residential address and I will prefers you to reach me on the
email address below (email@example.com)and finally after that
I shall provide you with more details of this operation.
Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
