Hang Seng Bank; Hong Kong — On line Phishing for personal information/fraud
This was in my inbox today: 12-30-2008
Good day Sir/Madam,
Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr.Peter T S Wong director of
operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd in Hong Kong.I have an obscured
business suggestion for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi war one of our client
Colonel Sadiq Uday who was with the Iraqi forces and also businessman made a
numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of One hundred
and twenty five million, seven hundred and fifty thousand U.S dollars only in
Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which
began in 2003. Again after the war another notification was sent and still
no response came from him. We later find out that the General 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 Colonel Sadiq Uday
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, One
hundred and twenty five million, seven hundred and fifty thousand U.S dollars
is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it.
When I discovered he and his family is dead i had to look for a very
reliable person who can stand as the Next of kin to that funds, so that the
funds will be transfered out of the bank immediately. What bothers me most is
that according to the laws of my country at the expiration 5 years the funds
will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to
claim the funds.
Please treat this business with utmost confidentiality and send me the
(1)Full names, (2)Private Phone number (3)Current residential address,
(4)Occupation (5)Age and Proffession.
Therefore, if you know you are capable of involving in this mouth watering
transaction, please send me an email to my Private email below, so that i
will give you more details about this transaction and how we will
successfully carry out this transaction without any risk involved.
Mr.Peter T S Wong
