Default Here'* A New one for yah

Here is a new one I have not seen before. It is like that middle eastern guy that wants to give you his money, it is now gone farther east...towards...china....

Letter Starts Here:

Hello,


I crave your indulgence to introduce to you a mutually beneficial business deal that requires co-operation in strict

confidence.My approach may appear desperate,but I assure you that everything has been put in place to ensure that result is

achieved without violating any International Banking Laws.





My name is LUE CHENG, Head of Private Banking,In 2001, a Hong Kong based billionaire businessman;MR CHEN SHUE DONG, opened a Fixed Deposit acc! ount and lodged a Total Sum of US$7,000,000.00, (Seven Million United States Dollars) with this Bank for a Tenor of Twelve Months. Upon maturity of the Tenor, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, another reminder was dispatched; we did, as a matter of fact send a total of ten notifications, all to no avail.


It was later discovered via his golf and country club associates in Kuala Lumpur that 54-year-old Lin Hanlie who had made a

fortune with toy chain Lucky Lam International, and then made a bigger one in real estate had been shot dead in downtown Hong

Kong. In recent years he was involved in a high-profile 24 million-dollar dispute with a golf business.Upon further investigation, I found out that he died INTESTATE without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his Next-of-Kin has proved abortive. And Alas I discovered that the gentleman who was very wealthy and a well known gambler in Hong Ko! ng, Macau and Shanghai, neglected or failed to declare any Next-of-Kin or Relation in all his Bank Deposit paperwork with us.


Due to the Dormancy of the Account for more than the statutorily allowed period, the funds have been moved out of our bank

(as sundry funds) to a Trust Deposit Banking Company abroad. From past experience, I know that no one will ever come forward

to claim the deceasedí* Money. Going by Malaysian Law, at the expiration of 6 (Six) years, the funds will be tagged "unclaimed" and forfeited to the Malaysian Government;if nobody claims ownership by bequeathal.


The crux of this solicitation,therefore, is that, in order to avert this negative development, I, in concert with a colleague

(the Chief Operating Officer of this Bank) wish to ask you to present your self as the Next-of-Kin to the Deceased gentleman.

We have at our Disposal a foolproof way to collect this money for ourselves by using you as a front. I can assure you that we

have studied the matter in all! it'* ramifications and have determined that it would only take a mere routine for you to

receive this Sum on our collective behalf,as we will take care of all the requisite paperwork and documentation over here and

all you'll need to do is to write a letter of demand to an Attorney whom we'll name for you.





We cannot operate a foreign account or have an account of more than US$10,000.00.Thus, you'll be presented as the beneficiary

of the funds to the Trust Deposit Company,so that you can go ahead to claim it, since all the necessary paperwork would be

perfected by us and dispatched to the Trust Deposit Banking Company with your supplied name and details.


Upon a favorable response from you I will quite naturally inform you about what is in it for you; this I assure you would be

more than commensurate with the role that you are expected to play.Subsequently,you'd have to supply us with a brief profil! e

of yourself and also how and where to join you in your count ry of abode when the funds are about to move into your possession.

Please, reply via my email [email protected]


I eagerly await your positive response.


Thanks and God Bless You



- Lue Cheng

Good email spam protection might be an option.

Ah, the 419 scam. Annoying people who send those should be international sport. We could have a World Cup of 419 baiting!

FYI - that is typically referred to as a 419 scam named after the law in Nigeria which makes it illegal. Almost all of those scams originate from there (hence the name). It contributes such a huge sum of foreign money that while its illegal, the law enforcement down there turns a blind eye to it.

419 Baiting is when someone with a particularly twisted sense of humor (like me) replies to those E-Mails and leads the sender on for a few weeks before flipping him off or leading him into the hands of authorities.

Best thing is just delete that crap. Don't respond, don't play tricks, nothing.
I have only gotten one letter from some guy in Zombawa or whereever, might have been the Nigerian guy.

Do folks still fall for those things? I thought the 419 scams went out along with dial-up internet?

ALSO - Speaking of scam, I got some crap from a church the other day, in the snail mail.
It was some special "carpet" (made of paper) for praying, and for asking God for money. After a person achieved a fortune in cash, they were supposed to send it to some random neighbor.
OH lord, won't you buy me, a mercedes benz. My friends all have porsches, I must make amends....


GYOD, all these money scams out there. Get rich overnight. Lucky money. Lottery...
