    My mother received this email

    Hello everyone, this is an email that my mom received about a few days ago, I felt that it was something very fishy, but my mom doesn't believe me (she never does -_-), and is trying to gamble. First of all, she or my father have never heard of this man, which makes me very suspicious.
    I did a search on his name (which is censored just in case this is not a scamming attempt), and he is a real person, but I can't say for sure that the man my mom is answering too is the real person or just taking the identity of a someone.
    By the way, this is my first time seeing this is real life, and I tend to be a very suspicious of things like this.

    let me know
    Wing Hang Bank
    Guangzhou Branch

    I am *censored* I work with Wing Hang Bank Guangzhou Branch China.I have an obscured business proposal for you Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client political party official A Middle East Oil merchant Mr Abdul Wahid Al Khajah made a numbered fixed deposit value at Eighteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State dollars in my branch. Upon maturity several notices where 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 found out that Mr Abdul Wahid Al Khajah, his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a gun fire that hit there home were his personal oil well his

    After further investigation it was also discovered that mr.Abdul Wahid Al Khajah did not declare any next of kin in his official papers, including the paper work of his bank deposit. 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, Eighteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State dollars is still lying in my bank, and no one will know of it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country, at the expiration of 6 years and 6 months the funds will revert to the ownership of the China 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 Mr Abdul Wahid Al Khajah so that you will be able to receive his funds.

    I want you to know that I have everything carefully planned. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary documents that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr Abdul Wahid Al Khajah. All that is required from you at this stage is to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. I will use my position to influence the move of the funds. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will file 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 this matter, as we are going to 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. Should you be interested please send me your full names, private phone/fax and current residential address and finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this operation. I prefer you to reach me with the below.


    Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

    Kind Regards,
    My mom sent him a reply:

    It was not last time Wing Hang Bank employee was impersonated for this scam. Read third post on that link

    If you want to know 100% proof that they are scam, ask them to use official Wing Hang Bank email account, instead of free email account like yahoo or gmail. Also ask them for their names and positions and call official Wing Hang Bank phone directory at (Tel: (86-20) 3878 0333) and ask for them. Chances are somebody at the branch speaks English.

    And please do not sensor this scammer's phone. 99% chance his phone well have British mobile number.

    Re: My mother received this email

    Btw, is there a way I can stop him from emailing my mom ever again? I can always stop my mom from reading the email by checking and deleting them before she does (she doesn't know how to use a comp, so I always check for her).
