There seems to be a competition taking place for the longest spam email. Very soon I'll declare a winner. The sender will, of course, have to pay me a shipping, handling and insurance fee before I will release the winning cheque to them.
Surprise. Thomas Williams of the HSBC has been lead to me because my name has "planted" me at the center of relevance" of his life. Really.
He does, of course, have a deceased client who has no relatives and several millions dollars which our friendly bank official wants to get his sticky hands on, with my help. Yeah, right.
I understand his request to keep the content of the email confidential since he sent it from mail3.tncg.gov.tw - Tainan City Government in Taiwan. Guess the taxpayers of Tainan won't be too thrilled to know they are paying some idiot in their government offices to send out phishing emails.
Delete it. It's all rubbish, as usual. Mr Williams doesn't work for the HSBC in London.
Good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the
center of relevance in my life. I would respectfully request that you keep
the content of this mail confidential because of its nature and respect the
integrity of this information. First of all I'll like to introduce myself and
status,I am Thomas Williams, Staff of International Private Banking at HSBC
I am contacting you concerning a deceased customer and a financial portfolio
of $8.5m United state dollars,which he placed under HSBC Bank managements two
years ago for turn over on his behalf.As the Chief Operations Officer of the
private banking sector, I encouraged the deceased on his arrival to our bank
on various growth of fund with prime ratings.
The favored route in my advice to him was accessing data's on 6000
traditional stocks and bond managements.Based on myadvise, attractive
margins,acquired profit and interest stood at over $10m United state
dollars,this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low
risk guaranteed returns on investment.
Early 2004 my client asked that the money be liquidated because of an urgent
investment requiring cash payments here in United Kingdom, and that the
liquidated fund be deposited in CORPORATE SECURITIES CO, a security
consulting firm based in London who are specialist private firm that accepts
deposits from high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations that
handle valuable products and undertake transactions that need immediate
access to cash. This order was given to
me in anticipation of his a rival from Norway later that week, this was the
last communication we had.
Sometimes this year I got a call from CORPORATE SECURITIES CO.informing me of
the inactivity of the portfolio, since I was the only one who knew about the
deposit, I immediately passed the task of locating my client to the Internal
Investigation Department of HSBC, which now revealed that the person who
suited his description was declared
dead of aHeart attack in Cane, South of France.
And in line with banking internal processes for account holders who have
passed away,an investigation was meant to be launched to contact a possible
surviving NEXT OF KIN to come forward as beneficiary of the fund but
unfortunately when my client came patronizing our services, in his bio-data
form, no next of kin was listed neither was there a
TESTATE.My client only used numbers and codes to make the account he opened
with us anonymous.
At this juncture, I'll like to unravel the true position of this
transaction,CORPORATE SECURITIES CO,has request for statements of claim from
me, and I alone knows of the existence of the deposit, for as far as HSBC
Bank is concerned the transaction with our late client concluded when I sent
the fund to the security firm, all outstanding interactions in relation to
the file are just customer service and due process.
The security firm has no single idea of what the history or nature of the
deposit is, they await instructions to release the deposit to any party that
I nominate as the beneficiary of the fund. I am prepared to place you in a
position to instruct Corporate Securities Co.to release the deposit to you as
the NEXT OF KIN. Kindly let me know your true interest in this pending
transaction so as to ascertain the proceeds,and I assure you that I couldhave
the deposit released to you within few days.I implore you to discard this
mail if you find no interest in this transaction, and if my offer is of no
appeal to you, please dint be vindictive and destructive just delete this
message and forget I ever contacted you.
Finally, I am sending you this mail without a measure of fear as to what the
consequences are, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing
gained and that success and riches never comes in 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.
I await your response.
