Good Day,


I am Mr. Vincent Cheng Hoi Chuen, GBS, JP Chairman of the Hong Kong and
Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited.


Our client BRIGADIER AMER ALI NAYEF, a businessman and also who was with
the Iraqi forces, made a fixed deposit, of Twenty Two million Five Hundred
Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch, a number of notices was
sent to him, before the war which began in 2003 and also after the war
but, no response came from him. We later found out that Brigadier Amer Ali
Nayef was shot dead along with his son, Khalid Amer also in the force as
they left the family home for work in the south of the city.


After more inquiry it was also discovered that the late Brigadier, did not
declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of
his bank deposit. What bothers me most is according to the laws of my
country at the expiration of 7 years the funds will be reverted to the
ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody comes for the funds,
Against this scenery, I have all the information needed to claim these
funds and I want you to act as the beneficiary of the deposit, there is no
risk involved in this matter, as we are going to adopt a legitimate method
and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents.


All confirmable documents to back up the claims will be made available to
you prior to your acceptance and as soon as I receive your return mail Via
my email address: [email protected] and I will let you know what is
required of you.


Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.


Best Regards,
Mr. Vincent Cheng

I love these. I used to hang around the 419-eater website just to read these and see the "baiting" process that some anti-scam folks would employ.

It's just so believable that the Chair of HSBC ltd's China/Asia operations uses a yahoo mail account in Japan cool.gif wink.gif .

He's obviously got lots of time on his hands if he's sending out unsolicited emails biggrin.gif rolleyes.gif .

To respond to one of these things you really need to have a brain bypass

Great comedy value though!

Anyone who will write back and turn the tables making THEM deposit money on your account before you will be able to close the deal with them I will always adress King, or Lord if they succeed.


- Dear Mr Vincent Cheng with a simple yahoo mail account. I'd love to get the fazilions of dollars to my account, but in order for my bank to reopen it I need to deposit no less than $100. Please make the transaction for that amount to have it reopened. On the account I have thousands of dollars so I will be able to pay all the costs for documents and other fees you will require from me before handing me the scamazillion dollars.

The amazing ting is that there obviously is a market for it. That's why these mails keep coming year after year. I've seen some people crying in the papers and on TV warning about these and how they got fooled by the convincing story.

Convincing huh?
