Due to the recent increase in scams of the sort reported here, the workload associated with this blog has become too large. Consequently, and with apologies, I am not going to update this blog any further, indefinitely.

Subject: AWAITING YOUR RESPONSE
Hang Seng Bank Ltd,
Taikoo Shing Branch,
25 Taikoo Shing Road,
I am Mr. Patrick Chan Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd.I have a Secured business suggestion for you.
Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Col. Hosam Hassan who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Thirty million United State Dollars ($30,000, 000.00) only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even 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 Col. Hosam Hassan along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.
After further investigation it was also discovered that Col. Hosam Hassan 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, Thirty million United State Dollars ($30,000, 000.00) 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 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 Col. Hosam Hassan so that you will be able to receive his funds.
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 Col.Hosam Hassan , 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 file 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 we shall share in the ratio of 60% for me, 40% for you, Should you be interested please send me information's below,
1. Full names and Age
2. Private phone number
3. Current residential address.
I will prefer you reach me on my private Email address or Fax it to my private fax machine number below
And finally after that I shall provide you with more details on this transaction. Your earliest response to this letter will be highly appreciated.
Mr. Patrick K.W Chan.

Subject: VERY URGENT
31 Eugene Marais Avenue,
My name is Mr. JIM SMITH, and I work in the International operation
department in a Local Bank here in South Africa. On a routine inspection I
discovered a dormant domiciliary account with a BAL. Of 36,000,000 (Thirty
Six Million USD) on further discreet investigation, I also discovered that
the account holder has long since passed away (dead) leaving no
beneficiary to the account.
The bank will approve this money to any foreigner because the former
operator of the a/c is a foreigner and from Iraq in particular and I am
certainly sure that he is dead, and nobody will come again for the
Claim of this money A foreigner can only claim this money with legal
claims to the account Holder; therefore I need your cooperation in this
I will provide the necessary information needed in
order to claim this money, But you will need to open an account where this
can be transferred.
If interested send your private Telephone No. And
Fax number including full details of the account to be used for the
deposit I wish for utmost confidentiality in handling this transaction
as my job and The future of my family would be jeopardized if it were
I want to assure you that the transaction is without risk if due process
is followed accordingly. Finally I will give you 25%for your coperation.
