Got this e-mail today and was wondering if it might be a scam. If it is genuine then the bubbly is on me.

INTRODUCTION LETTER:Mr. Frederick Chu
Mr. Frederick Chu
PLEASE REPLY TO MY PRIVATE EMAIL ADDRESS: removed

I am Mr. Frederick Chu, do permit me to have introduced myself briefly, I
Am Head of Private Banking, SHANGHAI COMMERCIAL BANK. I know it may seem
Improper to introduce myself this way and more importantly via mail but I
have just considered it faster and safe means of communication. Do not be
amazed by this mail. I am contacting you based on Trust and confidentiality
that will be attached to this transaction. The Management and the Legal
department of our BANK in a recent meeting, Recommended that the account of
Mr. Alexander H. Chiang, who was one of my branch depositors, should be
Declared dormant, confiscated and the depositor's fund sent to the Bank
Treasury. He died in world trade Center as a victim of the September
11,2001.Incident that befall the united state of America, the bank has made
series of efforts to Contact any of the relatives to claim this money but
without success.

Mr. Alexander H. Chiang is an account holder in my branch; he owns a
Secret dollar account with the sum of Thirty Nine Million, Seven Hundred
Thousand United States Dollars Only. Since his death, no next of kin of the
Dollar account holder nor any relative of his has shown up for the claim,
this is because he has the account as a secret account thus He left all the
documents for the deposit with me. This is where I am Interested and where
I want you to come in. I want you to come in as the Next of kin of the
deceased, I will give you the relevant documents And contacts to file the
claim application and then effect the Approvals for the transfer of the
money, I will be the one to provide the Vital documents for the claims of
the money and then advise you exactly on how we should handle it, my
solicitor will handle all the legal Process and perfect the process of the
transfer of the money to you.

Please include your telephone/fax number/ Home Address when replying this
mail and I will give you more information as soon as you indicate your
willingness to assist in this transaction. We will use our positions to get
all internal documentations to back up the claims. Do not be bothered that
you are not related in any way to Him, as I am in position to affix your
name as the next of kin. The whole Procedures will last only 7 working days
to get the fund Retrieved successfully without trace even in future. After
the transfer of the money we shall share the money Sixty/Forty. That is I
will have Sixty percent while you will have Forty percent.

PLEASE REPLY TO MY PRIVATE EMAIL ADDRESS: removed


Yours Truly,
Mr. Frederick Chu

Ha,

Wow for someone who works internationally at a bank is grammar is pretty poor.

I'm not sure if "Conspiracy to defraud" counts if its made up. Will have to check.

Either bin it or contact the Police.

Sent a copy to Yahoo as they hate spammers as much as I do.
When I have time I send copies of any spamming e-mails relating to the banks that I use to the bank security offices. I have had some good feedback from them as they genuinly try to put a stop to them.
Did I mention that I hate spammers.

:D

What can we do with these people? :mad: Trouble is that there may be just one poor misguided soul out there who MIGHT supply all the info that the spammer wants.

I've always been tempted to reply and give a whole load of false info just in the hope that the spammer thinks he's hit lucky. I then hope he spends hours trying to get somewhere with all the duff info I've supplied. Might just keep him out of action for a while. :)

Sorry to tell you Abarbarian but it seems Mr Chu wrote to me too.
So your not the only one he wants to share the money with.
I'm thinking of offering him a 70/30 split in his favour to under cut you!!!!:p

Got scamming e-mails. If you want to help out you can copy and paste the offending e-mail to the relevant banks security department. Here are a few addresses.

If the addy of the offending e-mail is from a Yahoo addy then contact them as they take scam e-mails from their addys quite seriously.
