Apparent Sender
Return Address



Another classic '419' Nigerian style of scam - sender claims to be trying to pass on large ammounts of money. But on answering you'll be hit with requests for 'administration fees' before you see any money. These fees will keep coming until you give up, but there is no money!

1. A '419' style of scam. Scammer claims to bea credit officer at a Hong Kong bank and wishes you to help 'transfer' money for a financial reward. If you go along with them you will be hit with requests for money to cover 'administration fees', but you'll never actually see any returns, and the scammers will simply disappear!

2. Notice that the sender uses a free, web based email address which is basically untraceable. Also a different address is used to that which was used to send the email in the first place.


"I am Mr.Simon Wong, credit officer of the Dah Sing Bank Ltd.I have a concealed business suggestion for you."...

If you have received this email, please remember that it is very common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first, although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.


The Spoof Email ...


I am Mr.Simon Wong, credit officer of the Dah Sing Bank Ltd.I have a
concealed business suggestion for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi war, our
client General. Hassan Fazi who was with the Iraqi forces and also
business man made a numbered fixed  deposit for 18 calendar months, with a
value of Fourty Three Million,Six 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
General and  his family had been killed during the war in bomb blast that
hit their home. After further investigation it was also discovered that
Gen. Hassan Fazi 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, Fourty Three Million,Six 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 to the laws of
my  country at the expiration three 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 Gen.Hassan Fazi so that you
will be able to receive his funds.


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  Gen.Hassan
Fazi ,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, 25% for you and
5%for any expenses incurred during the course of this operation.Should you
be interested please send me your private phone and fax numbers for easy
communication, you can write me via my private box
thus:( ) and i will provide you with more
details of this operation.

Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards

Mr.Simon Wong
