I have been recevied kind of scam mail at least twice in a week from diffrent persons, but most of all from South Africa. This is the first time I recevied from Hong kong.

FROM: Mr. Jenkin Hui .

Hang Seng Bank Ltd.
Sai Wan Ho Branch,
83, Des Voeux Road,
Hong Kong.

(huijenkin_hongkong@yahoo.com.hk)


Dear Friend,

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Jenkin Hui Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have an obscured business suggestion for you. I honestly apologize and hope I do not cause you much embarrassment by Contacting you through this means for a transaction of this agnitude, but this is due to confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium, sorry my English is not very good.

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 Twenty Four millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several Notice 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 the Col. and his family had been killed during the war in 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, ($24,500.000.00)Twenty Four 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 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 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 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 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 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 70% for me, 30% for you. Should you be interested please send me your full names and current residential address and I will prefer you to reach me on e-mail Address below

(huijenkin_hongkong@yahoo.com.hk)

And finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this Operation.Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.



Kind Regards
Mr. Jenkin Hui

The scam e-mails usually done by people from Africa. The idea is get your personal information and bank details and steal your money and identity.

The best thing is to do nothing, just delete as spam and block sender

Is a bonanza lottery Noble Plc a scam? The lottery is based on e-mail address and if that e-mail, suppositly of 3000000 or more e-mails, is chosen then one wins. There is no entry form, simply the chance of an established e-mail address being chosen out of a very large number of e-mails. Once chosen there is a formal set of requirements and then all of a sudden, in order to get the money, a large fee is required. Is this real or is it a scam? Noble Plc < admin@ nfinplconline.com?
