Received in one of my email accounts….. 

FROM THE DESK OF:

MR.ZHENG LEE, BANK OF OVERSEAS CHINESE TAIPEI, TAIWAN

Dear Friend, How are you today and business in your country? I am Zheng Lee, Bank Manager of bank of Overseas,Taiwan.

I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail.

I contacted you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this communication. I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you. I know you would be wondering why I am writing you with a request such as this but I only urge you to read on.

A British Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr.Courtney Steven made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation that Mr. Courtney Steven died from an airplane crash.The bank immediately launched an investigation into possible surviving next of kin to alert about the situation and also to come forward to claim his estate. If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin.

In the field of private banking, opening an account with us means no one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said, rarely do they nominate next of kin. Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; Mr. Courtney Steven died interstate. In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away, we instituted our own investigations in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate.

This investigation has for the past months been unfruitful. We have scanned every continent and used our private investigation affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem. According to the Laws of Republic of China, at the expiration of 6 (Six) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Chinese Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world of banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios,I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one unless evidence of relationship with the deceased, which I shall provide you with, is presented. I alone know of the existence of this deposit for as far as Bank of Overseas is concerned, the bank's management has no single idea of what? the history or nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that comes forward. I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal,If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through this email address. If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. I wish to inform you that should you contact me via official channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. I repeat, I do not want you contacting me through my official phone lines nor do I want you contacting me through my official email account. Contact me only through the numbers I will provide for you and also through this email address. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management Policy. Please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again, note I am a family man, I have a wife and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences may be, 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. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting, soon. In closing, please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country. Upon receiving your reply, I will then furnish you with a more comprehensive detail of this transaction and what is required of you. Awaiting your urgent reply via my private email at zhenglee001@yahoo.com.cn Yours Sincerely, Mr.Zheng Lee.

1. Kurt - June 15, 2006

have received a few of these myself….you would have thought folks would have tried sooner to copy the Nigerian methods when the iron was hotter, so to speak….though I guess there are still folks falling for the Nigerian variant

2. KURT2 - June 26, 2006

He has spoken to me on the phone. How will the scam pan out exactly.
Wants copies of my passport. Unlikely event. I have some good documents off him. Funny thing is Courtney steven isn’t even dead. He survived the plane crash. He is definately from Taiwan though so I will be reporting him to the relavant officials.

3. Johnny Five - July 7, 2006

This guy is a full on con artist. Don’t let him pressurise you into anything and do NOT! by any means give him any copies of legal documents, bank accounts, etc
Unless you want them to disappear. He needs to be bought to justice.

4. Dave Blanch - July 25, 2006

I can’t believe how anyone can remotely believe this guy! First and foremost money does not grow on trees. Secondly, why would some unknown person want to invest millions into your account? Finally, of course the authorities will be alerted about any large deposit into a bank account. It is either fraud or a scam not a genuine business opportunity. 99% of the time it is a scam. Don’t be the next sucker!

5. fukumimi - July 25, 2006

Dave>

Indeed. It is a scam which works on a) greed and b) the psychological irrationality of many people with regards to sunk costs.

I remember the first time I saw one of these. Pre-internet, probably late 80’s or early 90’s. Received in the post, and original Nigerian scam letter.

It’s got a damn sight cheaper for these con artists to send unsolicited requests for assistance, that’s for sure.

I know of one person who sent $2000 (in several installments) to one of this scammers. He got worried and emailed one of my friends for advice. Sorry, but I laughed.

6. nicole - August 22, 2007

i just got a email from this guy he has not asked me for any documents yet but it would be funny to see how far this will go it is really sad for the people who actually send him money though im glad i looked this up before i became another one of his idiots this page was really helpful

7. Ken - August 22, 2007

Yes Nicole, I just got one also. This person is persistant.

8. Jennifer - January 17, 2008

I just rec’d this exact email. What can I do about it?

9. David - February 1, 2008

simply don’t give them any documents, address, account number, or personal details because they can use ur details for future scams or clone you and believe me you would be in trouble instead.
i too received this; its funny how they dont even change the companies the dead guys worked for (which doesnt exist). as a banker no one would get away with a large deposit coming into their account before they are invetigated by even the remotest of all banks. money laundering is an international concern so even if it were not a scam you would go to jail before u probably even know how much was sent.

in a nutshell ignore the email or tell them off.
ps. remember not to include your signature in ur email coz most times it has your address.

10. CJ - April 5, 2008

I actually caught on to this Mr. Shing Li myself. I actually took it a step farther. You would not believe the lengths these people go to. So far, I have received a “last will and testament”, signed by two “witnesses”, a ”cablegram” from Bank of Overseas Chinese”, an actual account number, spoken with the “attorney” that mr li and “his bank” has provided. Today I receive a request for the passport or other identification. I am seriously considering getting the officals envolved to see how far we can take this and to see if we can catch this scam artisit.

Who could believe the scam, especially when the alledged isn’t deceased? Arrest Them and be done with it.

14. cunnilingus - October 3, 2008

20. JKJ - December 18, 2008

I have received 3 scamming emails in the last week or so, I don’t no whether or not there from the same people, but there are so many desperate people who are willing to take the less than 1% chance they will actually receiving some thing for the part they are supposed to play, desperate people don’t think straight because of financial worries and act before thinking, these scum bags need bringing to book, I can’t believe that the ISP’s don’t report this fraud to the authorities, why have they been able to carry out these same scams using the same email address and no one can or wants to catch them, if it was in the governments interest to stop these parasites, they would be caught and dealt with in no time at all, but that is asking to much for our hard working public officials isn’t it, after all they do a 4 hour day at least 2 or 3 days a week, they must be worn out, bless them. They should get off there arses and bloody well do some thing about this blatant fraud and protect the Vulnerable.

Ihave just received a mail of this bull shitt , guys how come this guy is still free ? he must be in jail now , he thinks tht people are stupid or wht , please people take care.and thank you google

24. alaa younis - February 25, 2009

have received your mail but without your identity. However, you can forget
about sending me your identity due to identity thieft. I needed this to verify
your informations but i have to exercise some level of trust to enable us
succeed in this transfer. You are already my partner in this
transaction. I have carefully work-out this plan and i can assured you
that this transfer will be completed in a couple of days.

I just feel I should let you know some important issues with regards to
expenses involved in this transaction.You might not be aware of what it takes
to have such an amount transferred,
especially being inherited funds. Well let me make it clear to you
that i will take care of the cost of all the logistics that has to do
with this transfer, such as the cost of obtaining the necessary official
clearances from the Hong Kong authorities, including other
miscellaneous expenses which i must incur to ensure a hitch free transfer.

It is pertinent at this point for me to inform you that i shall handle
all costs on my side of this transaction. However you will be required
to handle the expenses on your side, such as the cost of opening your
account and having it activated with an opening balance. Actually for a
person of your age and status i expect you to handle this issue of
processing your account because banks in UK normally request for
opening balance whenever you want to open an account in UK.
The opening balance is usually the minimum deposit in the account after
it is opened. This account must also be opened with your names(Names
you gave to me). Also on the issue of taxes, I will have the inheritance taxes
and other
taxes paid for from here. I don’t want you to have any difficulties in
paying for taxes so i will take care of that.

You will be entitled to 40% of the fund(30 million US dollars) why the
balance 60% will be kept separately for me.
I will wait for your acknowledgement before i proceed to send you the
contact informations of our corresponding bank so that you can have the
account open immediately.

i just got this email too and i will be reporting him to the propper officials. hotmail, whom i have my email with, and the police. i just hope someone stops this scumbag before its too late.

28. Dandtm9 - April 6, 2009

I repond with phony names, addresses phone #s etc and try stupid questons to try and waste as much of his time as possible. I also make request for complicated documents which he then has to fabricate and waste more of his time. I’ve been stringing him along for about a month its kinda fun.

29. SCAMMERS SUCK - April 29, 2009

I have been plagued with 50-75 scam emails per day for the last 9 months! I’ve sent them to MSN and all the other providers used, including IRS, banks (being used in scam) IC3, Scamwatchers Int’l. I do know MSN has been most cooperative in terminating accounts of these scumbags. I’ve never ever answered a scam email and yet look at the capacity that comes into my junk email folder daily! I’m sick of this to be honest, but it must be profitable for them otherwise they would stop doing this shit! I don’t understand how anyone could fall for their far out stories! It is obvious that they are scams. I was advised that some of them “rig” the addresses, e.g., name@domain12.com, even tho the email address exists they have changed it so its untraceable! I’ve even talked to the FBI and they are aware that things are intolerable.

30. MJScanlin - June 2, 2009

Good article, I found yours on accident. I just thought I would let you know that you can make money now for your articles. At SayItAloud you can post your articles like you already do, but you can get better exposure and make some decent money in the process when companies sponsor your article. I bookmarked your page and I look forward to your future articles.

lol got a email from mr huang too

Hello,

Listen my friend, you should exercise courtesy when you are sending me an
email.
I personally contact you because i needed someone to assist me in this
transaction that we benefit both parties. Therefore i do not mean any harm and
i expect you to address me appropraitely

I received your email and I wish to
inform you that all i need is your total cooperation as i
entrust these funds in your care. I was not too happy after
i read your mail and please understand that this is not scam
or anything related.
You dont have to be skeptical or worried about this transaction,
because i am assuring you that all procedures will be followed
in a legal manner. I know this will turn out to be a long and
lasting friendship between both of us.

This transaction is 100% safe and legal as you’ll get to see
as we go along. All procedures leading to the transfer of the
funds($30,000,000.00) to your local account through our
correspondent bank will be secured with strict adherence
to statutory provision of the law. Due to the very sensitive
nature of this pending transaction, please bear with me if i
am being a little vague at this early stage as i am as skeptical
as you are with communicating with a total stranger. It is a
given thing that trusts is earned, it is not given out lightly.

However, because of my dire need for a foreign partner in this
transaction, I request your assistance to stand as a foriegn
partner as i intend to establish you legally as the next of kin
and sole beneficiary of the deposit left in my bank by late
Courtney Steven. For this, I urge you to propose a reasonable
percentage of the total funds as your share and as an expression
of my gratitude for your assistance and partnership, thus

to me

Greetings from Japan.

I am in receipt of your mail and I thank you for your prompt response and willingness to assist. Let me reassure you that the source of this money is very legitimate and it does not have anything to do with laundering or whatever of such. I know this may sound like a scam, as plenty dubious activities are taking place over the internet today. I assure you that this is authentic and legitimate.You will agree with me that “there is never smoke without fire”. While some of the stories on the internet are true, some others are far from it. In the banking and the Government sector people actually transfer funds out of here. How else do you think past office holders become rich after office? How come the same people who have worked in the Legal/Banking industry in the past, are the same people running big time companies today? It is through shady deals that they guarantee themselves a better standard of living and then are able to prepare themselves to seek for political assignment after retiring from the Legal/Banking industries. I am in control of all situations regarding the success of this transaction, so you have nothing to be apprehensive about.

I must let you know that this transaction shall pass through all legal and documented processes. I am a Banker I know what is involved, so therefore I am going to implore my practical Banking experiences in this transaction and we shall come out very successful. For this transaction to commence, I will need you to tell me about yourself and provide me with your details so I can be sure of who I am about to engage in business and if you have the capacity to handle sums of this nature. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail. I contacted you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this communication. Sometime in 1999, a certain consultant/contractor Mr.Alexander Joshua made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at large amount (Amount withheld for known reasons) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address in America but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Japanese Solid Minerals Corporation that Mr.Alexander Joshua died long side his longtime companion, from an airplane crash.

If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking, opening an account with us means no one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account. Private banking clients apart from not nominating any next of kin also usually in most cases leave WILLS in our care, in this case; Mr.Alexander Joshua died intestate.In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away, my bank conducted a search in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate. This has for the past months been unfruitful. This sum has since been sitting in my bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one, it is evident is going to come forward for it. According to the Laws of my environment, at the expiration of 10(TEN) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Japanese Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational.

The world of banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one unless evidence of relationship with the deceased, which I shall provide you with, is presented. I alone know of the existence of this deposit for as far as the Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi is concerned, the bank’s management has no single idea of the history or nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to the party that comes forward. This is the situation. My bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track this man’s family; they have investigated for months and have found no relative. The investigation has come to an end. Consequently, what I propose is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr.Alexander Joshua so that the fruits of this old man’s labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. Acting in this capacity really is simple as I will explain in detail to you when I get your response. Being aware of this request I am making, I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I never contacted you. You may not know this but people like me who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private banking sector. I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move.

Such opportunities only come ones’ way once in a lifetime. If you will not work with me let me know and I will move on with my life but do not destroy me.I wish to inform you that you should not contact me via official channels; I willdeny knowing you and about this project. Contact me only through this email address provide to you.I do not want any direct phone conversation link between you and me. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management Policy I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide my family with new opportunities. The reward for this project makes it is a task well worth undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. My position as the Head of Finance Dept guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you find yourself able to work with me, I urge you to indicate to that effect. I am certain that we can conclude this transaction within ten (10) banking days from the date of my receipt of the reconfirmation of relevant information from you as I have outlined below:

Your Full Name:
Age:
Profession/Occupation:
Your Present address;
Your Address as at 24th November 1998 (date of the drafting of the
Will):
Your confidential Telephone number (not voicemail or answering machine):
Your most secured E mail address:
Your Country:

I will proceed to appointing an attorney who will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits which will put you in place as the next of kin to Mr.Alexander Joshua (the deceased depositor). The attorney will draft a backdated WILL to purport that it had been written and signed by the depositor himself, which will name you as the beneficiary/sole executor of the described inheritance therein the WILL and the attorney will file in the High court the appropriate affidavit in order to empower you as the next of kin/Sole Beneficiary and Trustee/Sole Executor of the Estate of the depositor which includes the Funds, which with the payment of the same due to you as the next of kin and executor of the WILL. The very good thing about this transaction is that it will be done in a very proper and legal manner. After all the necessary documentation for the funds release are met and satisfied, an approval may be given by the board of my bank for the release of the funds to your nominated account. I wish to inform you that should you contact me via official channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. Contact me only through the numbers I will provide for you and also through this email address. I do not want any direct link between you and me. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management Policy. Please, again, note I am a family man; I have a wife and children, 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. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting, soon. In closing, please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us.

Awaiting your urgent reply.

Yours Sincerely,
Mr.Suzuki Takuya Yuki
