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.

This mail might come to you
as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it as
unserious could come into
your mind; but please consider it a divine wish and
accept it with a deep
sense of humility. I am Mr. Peter Wong director of
operations of the Hang
Seng Bank Ltd. I have a obscured business suggestion for you.
U.S and Iraqi war our client Major Fadi Basem who was with the Iraqi
forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar
months, with a value of Twenty Four millions Five Hundred Thousand United
Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to
during the war early this year. Again after the war another
notification was sent
and still no response came from him. We later find
out that the Major and his
family had been killed during the war in bomb
blast that hit their home.
After further investigation it was also
discovered that Major Fadi Basem 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 Four millions
Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one
ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to
the to the laws of my country at the expiration 3 years the funds will
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 Major Fadi Basem so
that you will be able to
receive his funds.
WHAT IS TO BE
I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we
out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare
document that will back you up as the next of kin to Major
Fadi Basem , 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 favour 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
endeavour to observe
utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.
Once the funds have
been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall
share in the
ratio of 60% for me, 40% for you . Should you be interested please
