Chen Guangyan—Bank of China (Hong Kong)

Ha! Ha!

This guy sent a first email saying "I go by the name of Chen".

I replied saying "So... you go by the name Chen and your alias is Crook?"

And here is his reply! 8-)

Am I apprehensive? Is that my problem?!

Bank of China (Hongkong)
Eastern Commercial Centre,
393-407 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai,Hong Kong.
Dear Friend,

It is understandable that you might be apprehensive because you do not
know me but I have a lucrative business proposal of mutual interest to
share with you.
Permit me to introduce myself, I am Mr.Chen Guangyuan, Foreign
Operations Manager of the Bank of China (Hong kong), Eastern
Commercial Center, Wan Chai Branch. Only recently I discovered that an
account belonging to Ghazi Musa Hassan, who was with the Iraqi forces
and also a businessman made a numbered fixed deposit for 12 calendar
months, with a value of Seventeen Million Three Hundred Thousand
United State Dollars only into an account with my
branch, Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, but there was no
Again, December last year, another notification was sent and still no
response came from him. We later find out that Ghazi Musa Hassan and
his family had been killed during the war in gun fire at Mukaradeeb
where his personal oil well was.
After further inquiries, it was discovered that Ghazi Musa Hassan did
not declare any next of kin in his official papers, including the
paper work of his bank deposit. The last time he came to my office, he
confided in me that no one knew of this deposit in my bank. What
bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country, at the
expiration of six{6} years,the funds will be revert to the ownership
of the Hong Kong Government, if nobody applies to claim it. Against
this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like to front you
as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Ghazi Musa Hassan, so
that you will be able to receive his funds.
I want you to know that all modalities for the successful of this
transfer to you have been mapped out and success is 100% sure. I have
an attorney that will prepare the necessary documents that will back
you up as the next of kin to Ghazi Musa Hassan, all that is required
from you is 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 file for
claims on your behalf and also secure the necessary approval and
letter of probate in your favor for the movement of the funds to an
account that will be provided by you. We are going to adopt a
legalized method because the attorney will prepare all necessary
documents in your favor. There is a reward for this project and it is
a task well worth undertaking. There is no risk involved at all in our
planned modalities, I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I
have here is your refusing to work with me and alerting my bank.
I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has
blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of
relevance in my life.
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 50% for me, 50% for you.
I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the
consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing
gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of
gold. Please observe this instructions religiously.
Should you be interested please send me your:
Full names and address.Telephone and fax numbers.
And finally after that I shall furnish you with more informations
about this operation.
Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
Kind Regards
Chen Guangyuan
